Gun store owner opens fire on three assailants after they drive van into store

The owner of the Guns and Ammo Gunsmith store in North Augusta, S.C. thought he was going to die tragically. Three men had driven a van into his store, executing what they hoped would be a quick “smash-and-grab” robbery.


“It’s a haunting thought. It literally is a haunting thought when you see the tire tracks, you hear the tires,” Bayezes told WRDW-TV. “Everybody assures you that you just did what you had to do to protect your family. They say it’ll heal over time, but when does time go away? It’s something that nobody ever wants to do.”

But he says he had no choice after he heard one of the robbers shout, “Shoot the mother f**ker!,” followed by the sound of a gun cocking. “I mean, they would’ve shot me. In my mind, with no reservation. If that firearm had been loaded, I might’ve been a statistic.”

Another example of an armed citizen being able to go home at the end of the day due to possessing a firearm.

1. If the question is...

..."Should the gun store owner have shot these criminals?" then the answer is "YES, at least twice, and as many times as it takes to end the attack."

USMC Rules For Gun Fighting #3:
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

2. Pretty good shooting

 

considering the circumstances, he went against 3 thugs and killed one, wounded two w/o any physical injuries to himself. Hopefully he can come to grips with having to take a life even though he was defending himself.
The taking of a human life, even when justified as this seems to be, is never an easy thing for most people.

Glad he made it out alive and hopefully the other two thugs will be charged with murder also.

4. They will be

 

They'll be charged with everything that happened during the commission of the crime. I bet they pick these guys up in a hospital in a day or two. Otherwise they'll probably die from the wounds.

3. Extreme "cowboy style" over reaction.

Any true gun shop would have tools handy. There's no reason why the owner could not have grabbed a pair of pliers, dismantled the van, discarded the parts in the landscaping, and then incapacitated the three motorists by lobbing the pliers at their shins. For all we know they were just following bad directions from their GPS.

Besides, he doesn't get to decide if his life was in danger - that determination can only be made later, on a message board.

7. Disgusting.

 

Some right wing, death merchant, probably racist asshole gunned down three young men in the prime of life. Young men that were probably thinking about turning their lives around and applying to college, I'll bet.

And for what? Being involved in a car accident?

What a piece of work.

9. Did you all see that evil gun he used?

 

It looked like he used a SuperMurderDeathKiller 2000 (Sig 556 SWAT SBR). A fine choice for a defensive firearm.
