Clerk Uses Gun To Stop Robbery At Obama Convenience Store

posted on September 1, 2016

If you can’t see the irony in this “Armed Citizen” story, you’re just not trying.

Back in 2011, a Columbia, S.C., convenience store and gas station owner changed the name of his store to Obama Store, named for the U.S. president who doesn’t believe law-abiding Americans are qualified to use personally owned firearms to protect themselves from violent criminals. Fast forward to Monday, when the store clerk did just that, drawing his gun and thwarting an attempted robbery at the store. 

According to local law enforcement, a man entered the store at 3:30 a.m. on Monday and flashed a weapon. Instead of handing over money, the clerk pulled a gun, prompting the robber to flee. 

The unsuccessful attempted robber did not get away with anything, and law enforcement officers continue to search for him.
