    Obviously, he needs a psychological examination, but still should be apprehended for his improper behavior.

    The following quotation was by Jeff Cooper, who ran GUNSITE RANCH in Arizona for years; VIOLENCE January 1975--"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure--and in some cases I have--that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."

    The store managed should invest in a nice 12gauge pump to keep under the counter. Get one of the models with the pistol grip and it shouldn't be too hard to find a hiding place for it.Load it up with some 3" magnum number 4 buckshot and you will be all set.
