Two nights ago there was a robbery of a Walgreens in Omaha. What was unusual was that a customer pulled out a pistol and killed one of the robbers and held the other for police. The two came into the store with masks on, one carrying a short barreled Rem 870. When one of the thugs grabbed a customer and pointed the shotgun at the clerk, the customer pulled what the paper says was a 40 S&W pistol out of his waist band and shot the one with the shotgun 4 times in the chest. The robber dropped the 870 and ran out of the store, where he collapsed and died in the parking lot. The other robber tried to run, but the customer grabbed him and held him down until police arrived. There was a third person, a get-away car driver who left the scene but was caught last night. The man is being treated like a hero in Omaha (thank God), but there was one issue--no Concealed Carry Permit. So, he has been cited for that and will probably have to pay a fine and may lose his handgun permit (Omaha requires a permit). Couple of lessons here: 1. Get your permits! 2. How someone takes four 40 S&W rounds in the chest and runs out of the store is a concern--luckily the shotgun was not loaded (stupid crook), or he may have opened up. Of course I have no idea what ammunition was used--could have been hard ball. I'm thinking about 45ACP only for my concealed carry now. 3. The customer did everything right except the permit. No charges, other than the permit citation, are pending. He kept his cool, didn't shoot the unarmed robber, hit his target, etc. 4. He was stopping for some ice cream--you never know when you might need your weapon.
