    come on now. if the clerk had a gun they would have been shot, not the other way around. even if they defended themselves once they would be garunteed to get shot the next time they get robbed. no hourly employee should have to use a gun to protect a store, i'm not getting shot for my job.

    we hope Mrs. Branch lets the clerks pack a pistol behind the counter and use it. We need to protect ourselves. I am sick of people walking around thinking they can rob anytime of the day or night. I am glad no one was hurt.

    When will the public wake-up and start exercising your right to be armed just like the criminals. It will make a big difference in the eyes of the criminal. They know must are unarmed, change that thought and arm yourselves and help the community. Once a couple of criminals have been kiled by citizens, 100's of them will be thinking twice!

    I am down with Tony in Fville,,,You hear it on Ch.9 all the time.The man comes on and said-- When it comes to crime,the cops said they can't do it alone. Well lets help them. Because I will not give it up if it is mine and I worked for it,,If they think they are bad enough then let them come and take it. I don't drink,I don"t hang out at night. I go to work and come Home. I do not break the LAW. But I have Been Shot 3 times in the past and cut about 10 and by GOD I an still walking and talking. So This is to all you punks out there. If you want what is mine,,,I am begging,,,PLEASE come and try to take it. I still shop at Wal-Mart every SAT. I am sick of the Working MAN and Woman getting steped on. If I am in the parking Lot anywhere and see someone getting beat down,I will be there to help you no matter what it cost me.I will fight back and you can bank on that. So if you want to rob someone Please don"t let me see You. GOD Bless the working Men and Women of all age.

    It seems that I recall we were all told that "it's not as bad as you think".

    It's vigilante time in Pitt County. When I go to Greenville for any reason now . . . I am armed and will not hesitate to snuff out any criminal. Both the sheriff and the chief of police need to get new jobs . . . maybe as a clerk at a convenience store.
