    It is statements such as those made by ozzycoop that supports my beliefs as to why firearms need to be removed from the common citizen and only law enforcement and military personnel be authorized to possess. This jackass is a complete and is a total detriment to the gun nuts cause…what an imbecile and to think you people someone like that should be permitted to possess. Wow you people really show the level of your mentality if this is what you support…you can see why the 2nd ammendment needs to be abolished and rewritten….and firearms confiscated.

    Once again, a Turkey Hill is robbed in the Wilkes-Barre area. I guess corporate has no desire to improve security at these stores.

      It’s more cost-effective to have less than $100 robbed than to pay someone to install a security system, storage for the footage, and maintenance of the system. Less than $100 kept in the till at any time; rest is in a heavy safe under the registers that the average employee does not have access to.

    Clerk with an open carry gun beats thief with a knife, pretty much each time it happens. I know of a couple of clerks that open carry in a convenient store, and oddly enough- they’re never robbed.

      Unfortunately these large corporations are probably too ‘politically correct’ (another term for being liberally compromised) to allow their employees to carry any weapons.
