Rob Taco Bell and Get Hit by a Shell

The news coming from Cleveland demonstrated the power of three workers trained to use a firearm
At a Taco Bell in Cleveland in the early morning hours two would be robbers raised their alarm
Faces covered by masks they ordered five employees to drop to the floor
That was a command three employees fearing for their lives chose to ignore
They drew their firearms and shot to death one of the robbers trying to commit a crime
Too many stories in the past of workers handing over a cash register’s dollars and dimes
Then herded into the back and shot dead
Not this time as the second robber fled
There can never be a cop on every corner or cruising along every street
If felons know that attempting a robbery exposes them to a citizen’s pistol, from that activity they will retreat
Would be an interesting experiment to conduct to counter the hysteria over the “need” for more gun control
Train and arm workers to shoot with signs to that effect on windows and doors, crime would fall not soar
Criminals may not be the brightest lot
None of them want to rob a store where they might be shot
