Default Baristas to begin packing guns
SPOKANE, Wash. - After three robberies in less than a month at Jitterz Java, employees say they're refusing to be victimized anymore and are preparing to pack heat on the job.
Jitterz Java owner Sara Chapel is encouraging her staff members not only to bring their guns, but she's keeping one in the stand just in case.
"I would rather have it and need it, than need it and not have it," Krystal Cogswell said.
Order a drink and you may find yourself looking at Krystal Cogswell's .38 Special Lavender Lady secured to her hip. She's one of the half dozen employees arming themselves in case of another robbery.
I'm not sure I'd be really happy about it making the news if it were me, but more power to them.

The sad part is that it IS news, not that it is happening. That sort of thing should happen a hundred times a day here in the US.

At one time, we had a liquor store where every employee open carried a gun. To no surprise, no one ever attempted to rob the store.
