    Wow it's getting bad out there, soon you'll need Id to by staples. :D

    DAVENPORT -- A 47-year-old man is in custody after allegedly attacking a gas station attendant with a stapler during a robbery Wednesday night.

    Richard Walker Brown, street address unavailable, Davenport, has been charged with first-degree robbery and assault while participating in a felony, according to Davenport Police Department reports. The charges stem from a robbery, which happened at about 7:10 p.m. Wednesday at 3907 Brady St.

    Mr. Brown is accused going into the QC Mart gas station at that address and fighting the cashier, police said. Mr. Brown allegedly punched the employee several times and also hit him with a stapler.

    The victim suffered cuts to his head and lip, police said.

    Hit him with the stapler? Just a blunt object or a piercing weapon?

    Good God! Clearly, we need to enact commonsense stapler legislation to protect all the lil' lemmings, while "honoring" the traditional sport stapler!

    When staplers are outlawed, only outlaws will have staplers. Join the NSA today!

    I think they should put a 10 staple limit on all future staplers. Then they should ban the Streamline brand of staples because they should only be used by IRS officials due to the high cyclic rate.

    No standard office worker is going to need a higher capacity then 10 staples at a time to perform their jobs.

    The big "construction" style staplers can only be purchased with a class 3 Staple License.

    The older staplers produced at least 30 years ago can be purchased with just a class 4 Curio Stapler license.

    :D :D :D

    The story didn't say the guy was trying to rob the store WITH the stapler - It said he went into the store, punched the clerk AND hit him with a stapler, most likely found near the cash register.

    Oh---thank God no evil Russian types were used....there could have long stacks of staples.

    What if it had been a semi-auto Assault Combat Stapler with detachable refills?!

    Staples don't kill people, Husbands who get home early kill people.

    This ties back to our improvised weapons thread, and I don't think any of us put down Stapler. See we need to learn from these types of people. Glad this string started some fun, we need it....
