  1. First of all….The concealed carry laws need to be repealed! Laws protect the criminal not the law abiding citizen! This pig faced female would be hurting and all for $160.00…..staff some men!!!!! …… Installing the 360 degree outdoor camera this week is a good start, I hope the bank across the parking lot caught her get away vehicle on tape!!!!!

  2. Yeah, because repealing the the concealed carry law will stop people who disobey the law, anyways. Laws are for people who follow them.

    And, a man is no match for a gun. LOL Do you think this woman would have thought twice if she saw a man behind the counter? LOL

    And I do hope that the Chase bank got her getaway, but I’m thinking they did not since I’m sure the police would have stopped to check there, first.

  3. Instead of complaining about laws, stop voting them in.

    What has to happen is not to amend laws, but to remove the reason for breaking. The current employment rate/cost of living/steep taxes are what drive people to such extremes. I can probably say that this woman is not that mad of a person, and was in desperate need of money, not attainable by legal means.

    Maybe she has kids and they are in need, what if she is about to become homeless?

    The best thing about what happened is no one was hurt, and they are taking further safety precautions to ensure that.
