PALM BAY, Fla. -- A bank robber in Palm Bay couldn't get away from a bank Thursday, because a customer of the Space Coast Credit Union on
Malabar Road had a gun and a concealed weapon permit. The customer used his gun to stop the robber.
Floyd Francis a.k.a: Sorry Sac
Police identified the suspect as 23-year-old Floyd Francis. He's facing robbery charges. The man who stopped him, Ruben Torres, actually had his
gun in his car in the parking lot. He had enough time to go out to his car, get his gun and then go back in and hold Francis for
Torres went to the Space Coast Credit Union to pick up some cash for a cruise this weekend and was on his way out when he noticed a man walk in,
give him a weird look, pull out a Walmart bag and put it on his head. It was the first sign it wasn't going to be just any visit to the bank. "It's
not Halloween. You don't walk in and put a bag over your head unless you’re going to do something," Torres said.
This story is too funny. This man is goinna get his ....s busted in prison when word gets out about the details of his arrest and this story. lol
But, the point I wanted to bring up is the Concealed Weapon Permit [CWP]. We don't see many of these stories in the press altough we know they
happen all the time (via the NRA reports as an example). This is just one fine example of the citizens right, and I say, DUTY right to carry a
gun-concealed or otherwise.
No one can protect you 24 hours a day, Except YOU! If more people would carry there would be one heck of lot less crime. People/criminals would
think twice about committing a crime against persons when not knowing if the potential victim has means to protect themselves. If it was common
practice to carry, they would be less likely to go through with any ill acts.
Lets give it a try and see. Stop making protecting oneself a crime or whatever negative stigmatism Lefty Politicians and MSM are doing negative
