"why not hire off duty police to sit at your store, have a police car sit at the store, or even have the police do rounds every hour at your store..I'm sure it cant be that expensive, probably the same price of a hand gun?"
You can buy a used revolver for like $200. Is that cheaper than hiring a Security Guard? Yeah for a night, but not for very long.
We don't have enough officers to have a cop at every convenience store.
Isn't it illegal to act as a "vigilante" ? If so and the police have not charged this clerk or the one last month, then I think these individuals are simply protecting themselves when threatened with a firearm.
