    I'm sure that Mr. Brown legally purchased that weapon, and had his carry permit. After all, criminals wouldn't dare break any gun laws, would they?

      RedStateVet you really dont know jack about how he got his weapon so to avoid sounding like an idiot why dont you wait until the facts are in!!

        RedStateVet is 100% right. Amost zero criminals are LTCH (no carry permits in this state, it's called a license) and armed robbery is rarely a first time event for a criminal, so he could not pass the NICS background check. That makes it 100% that he could not legally buy a gun or have a LTCH. It's just a little common sense.

        Since you wanted to have your panties in a twist and cry like a left-wing girl, I just wanted to help. 🙂

    This dude is a total douche bag and I hope the justice system doesn’t fail to give him the proper punishment! Get a job you fucking slob! This crack head should be shot for trying to rip of some poor bastard that probably worked hard for his money! And they want to take our rights to bear arms? Fuck that! It’s crack heads like this that makes it even the more reason we shall have the right to carry!
