I need so help with finding the info on a story that the pro high capacity magazines...

guys are pointing out as the reason for them to stay legal. It is on the National Association for Gun Rights FB page. https://www.facebook.com/nagrfb for the daring.
This is all they got, no links to they story that I can see:
"Pawn shop robbery survivor Chuck Robles is shown here being interviewed at the State Capitol in Denver, Colorado. He testified against a bill banning so-called "high capacity magazines" because had the bill been law, Nobles would have died, as he had to fire 13 rounds to stave off three attackers. LIKE and SHARE!"


Does anyone know anything about this story? This is getting them all jumping up and down in the comment section. I want get to the bottom of this story, and I will admit, rain on their parade. Can You guys help?

P.S you may not want to read the comments if you do go to that page, scary!

1. Chuck Robles had a five-shot revolver.

Rather hard to shoot 13 shots out of it. His manager was also returning fire on the three thugs. It is entirely likely that between then they fired 13 shots. Here is a link to details of the story: http://www.gunlaws.com/CCW-SelfDefenseAwardees.htm

In that kind of fire-fight you can burn through ammo in a real hurry, and discover that a five-shot revolver is suddenly empty and you are disarmed. In that kind of attack you want to have a generous supply of bullets before you have to reload.

2. In that version Robles had a Beretta 92. 15 +1, or 13+1 if the compact version.

"James was filling in for his son at Tempe Pawn, and turned down the managerís offer of a sidearm, joking that criminals would shoot at the openly armed person first. He had brought along his own Smith & Wesson J-frame five-shot pocket revolver, with no permit. (Concealed carry is legal without a permit at a place of business, at the ownerís discretion.)

Two of the perpetrators had visited the shop casually around noon, then returned at closing time with a driver and a third person. Arousing no suspicions, the first two entered and struck up a conversation. On a prearranged signal however the three assailants drew handguns and opened fire without warning, at Chuck, the openly armed manager.

During the first barrage, Chuck was shot in the legs and collapsed on the floor behind the counter. One round hit and was deflected by his Benchmade pocket knife and probably saved his life. Another round zipped by Jamesí head, who, suspecting nothing until the attack began, had just leaned down to check a label on a sewing machine, a move that likely saved his life.

The manager returned fire from the floor with his hip-holstered Beretta Model 92. James drew his concealed revolver and joined with the wounded manager in fighting back. When it was over, the police responded.

One robber was pronounced dead at the scene and another seriously wounded. The driver and the third man escaped but were later arrested. The driver plea bargained and testified against the two surviving robbers who were both convicted of murder and armed robbery. The manager recovered from his wounds.

..."

4. OOPS. I got James Delcoure and Chuck Robles reversed.

Robles did have a high-cap mag. Regret the error.

5. This story gose from bad to worse!

"He had brought along his own Smith & Wesson J-frame five-shot pocket revolver, with no permit. (Concealed carry is legal without a permit at a place of business, at the ownerís discretion.)"

NO permit needed? Business or not all must have a permit. Makes me wonder if they got them with a background check?

6. OK I got 2 concealed weapons with no permit, now...

I am trying to find out how many and what kinds of guns were being used by the attempted robbers.

Apparently weapons with out a permit is OK for these gun nuts.Yet trying to find the old news links with the info I need is not that easy.
