CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Armed robbers hold up a GUN STORE, get shot and killed by owner

StaffRebel Columnist

Why anyone would try to rob a gun store of all things is complete insanity. But that's exactly what happened when two armed thugs tried to hold up Dixie Gun and Pawn in Mableton, Georgia.

The incident, which happened on December 26, was caught on camera. The suspects ran into the store and yelled “Get down on the floor or I will kill you!”

64-year-old Jimmy Groover, who was behind the counter, grabbed his own weapon and opened fire, killing one suspect and wounding the other.

Fox News reports that the first gunman died at the scene. The second gunman took off in a silver Dodge Magnum, and police are still searching for him.

“I had no other choice. I had no other choice. I hate that it happened,” Groover said. “I've been doing this 30 years. Nothing like this has ever happened. I never wanted this to happen, but I want to go home at night, too.”

Police say it's unlikely Groover will be charged because he acted in self-defense.

I remember an incident years ago , where an idiot decided to rob a gun store (which even had a police car parked in front ) and had several patrons inside. The robber was shot seven times by seven different people. Bad day at Black Rock to say the least.

There was another incident in the US where an officer had been shot in the shoulder and was being assaulted by aperp after a roadside stop. A passing motorist stopped and, after determining the officer wanted assistance, got his handgun and shot the perp dead. Police stated that the officers life had been saved by the motorist. You won’t hear the MSM talking about that one.
Hey lefties, if we can save just ONE life it is all worthwhile.

If I was the store owner, I would have pulled 20 bucks out of the crooks wallet , to help pay for his blood to be removed from the floor.

A Canadian’s patriotic duty is to be murdered so that the cops and legal system has an easier time. It confuses the heck out them when the perp is dead instead of the intended victim.

“God Created Men and Sam Colt Made Them Equal! – In America, anyway…

In Canada the Liberals came along and turned good men into victims and defendants…and turned criminal scum into victim-heros…
So the Liberals own the blame for the why of the three S’s…

Here is a compilation of three quotes from three different people and I can’t remember who they are but I edited it all together and accept no credit for it.

If it’s not legal to defend yourself then the government needs to be held criminally responsible if you get hurt or killed.
If the police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our social development, and if they are not legally liable to do so –  Then It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his family and his fellow citizens from criminal attack in the immediate absence of police intervention, this is not only constitutionally acceptable, but morally mandatory. 
When seconds count the police are only minutes away.
Please support castle law for responsible citizenship and a safer community.

BTW – did you notice how much time the intended victims had to dill 911 when the armed robbers had the drop on them? Yeah , none. So that old saw about let the police handle it is a thread bear lie – when a crime occurs there IS no time , just you and the criminal, and he will always have enough time to kill you before police arrive.

This is the purpose the second amendment was codified – armed response as a last resort to criminal threat.

The unfortunate fact of a good man winning and surviving a justified defensive gun fight is he becomes a victim of the act as well – he will have to live with the fact he took another man’s life – this should bother a good man

How incredibly stupid of these guys. Sadly, it is the store owner with a conscience who will suffer with the memory and all the legal stuff he’ll have to endure, even if he isn’t charged. Insurance will probably be raised, etc. etc. He is a brave man though.

Don’t mess with grandpa!!

Maybe holding-up a gun store was not the best idea.

Having said all that below I support castle law and open carry in Canada.

Keith Barnes… It is not illegal to defend yourself in Canada it’s just very complicated and very expensive.
However I think that changes if you are protecting your property meaning if somebody stole your truck I don’t think you’re allowed to shoot him while he’s driving it off your property.

To the best of my knowledge, it is illegal to defend yourself, in Canada, with a firearm. This means that if a Guy drives up to your store with a 155mm Howitzer, with the intention of robbing you and you shoot the man dead, with your .22 Revolver. You are going to get charged with Murder.

Canada has these laws to protect Muslim Thugs, when they get up to their usual, ‘Death to Whites’ Death Cult tricks.

I feel sorry for the owner, it doesn’t really matter who you are or who it was killing someone in a split second decision is going to mess with you.
commented 2017-01-12 14:45:31 -0500
Exactly Lloyd, the f**king morons that act as our legal/justice system would be up in arms because Canadians don’t have a right to defend themselves!!

Good riddance to bad rubbish I say!

Can you imagine if this happened in Canada ???

The shop owner should be awarded the court costs and prison he saved the state from prosecuting and imprisoning this filth.

This is poetic justice at its finest!
