Shooting At Sinkers

"A citizen just like a police officer has the right to defend themselves or others, if they're in fear of death or serious bodily injury and that right extends to using deadly force," said Capt. David Imhof of the Nashville Police. Damned skippy Cap'n Dave!

On April 26, 2008, two armed bandits entered Sinkers Wine and Spirits in Nashville Tennessee. Manager Clifford Baxter ducked into a back room to call 911 when he saw the two criminals with guns drawn. They did not want liquor. They did not ask for cigarettes. They demanded money. The two criminals stuck their guns in the clerk's face and then ordered two customers to the ground during their rampage.

They did not know one customer had a CCW. They did not know he had the willingness to use the concealed gun he carried. They did not expect that he would draw his weapon, engage them in gunfire and kill one of their criminal asses before they could complete their crime.

Yeah, I'm sure their crackhead baby's mama will be getting some air time bawling about how they were good boys who just wanted a loose cigarette when they entered Sinkers, but the manager and employees are telling a different tale. They are damned glad their customer carried a gun. They have plans to arm themselves in the future.

Good move Sinkers.......

In Texas however that CCW permit holder would have been committing a felony for merely having his weapon in an establishment that derived more than 51% of it's income from alcohol sales, regardless if the permit holder was drinking or not. Drinking while carrying is a separate felony.

Is sinkers a bar or a liquor store?
Looks like a store to me (from the picture). In Arizona carry in a liquor store is fine, but a place that sells for "on premisis" consuption is verboten.

After I watched the video, I found this one below it that really drives the message home that the police can't be everywhere. Listening to the 911 call - just frightening. I'm so thankful she was armed. The minutes waiting for the police to arrive while a stalker broke in through her back door felt like hours.

Carry a gun. Cops are too heavy and darn near impossible to conceal.
