This is really crazy, my roommate owns a little pizza shop in town, and tonight he was robbed at gun point. A former employee walked in with a bandana covering his face, reached over the counter and opened the register to take all the money. He had another kid with him who had a gun pointed at my roommate. Hearing about things like this on the news are what convinced me to get my CFP, but this really hit home. The kid left with only $115, and since my roommate knew who he was and where he lived the cops arrested him within 30 minutes of the 911 call. He is lucky they were content with leaving with the money. I'm sure my permit won't be here for two more weeks, and now that seems like an eternity.

Wow! Your roommate needs his CFP! More importantly, he needs to invest in and train with a good gun - he could have it in his business without a permit.

HIs brothers and his dad have CFPs, but he hasn't gotten around to getting his yet, this might motivate him to get one now.

Tell him to get a gun, practice with it, and carry at his business. He is completely within his right to carry concealed at his place of business!!!

I agree with you, and if it was my store I would figure out a way have mine with me.

I know he does own guns, but I actually don't know if he has a gun at the store. I didn't ask because I know I don't always want people to know if I have one, so I usually extend the same courtesy to them. I might ask him sometime though. Even if he did have one, in this situation he might not have felt morally or tactically justified in using it.

I was mostly posting this story because this is the first time somebody I know was involved in this type of thing, and it has had a much greater impact on me then hearing about it on the news.

I'm sorry that this happened to him and I'm glad he's ok. It's so important to always be prepared because this can happen to ANYONE. Hopefully, he'll start carrying a firearm in his store and eventually get his permit.

NPD - A lot of good people have been killed by people they have known...you never know what that "friend" will do in a situation like that, especially if he thinks you have made him.
