    Houston CHL holder killed trying to intervene in a robbery

    I would classify this as a Darwin award winner, a customer hid and waited until the robbers were leaving the store and opened fire on them dying in the process.
    The robbery was over no one was injured and the crooks were leaving with their ill gotten gain, the threat was over till the unidentified customer began exchanging gun fire with the fleeing criminals.

    Sounds like poor tactics to me, other than that, I was not there so I have no idea.

    ...if, as the report states, he waited at the front of the store for the robbers to return......seems to me he coulda' just left.

    I'll never fault a citizen for standing up to criminals.

    I don't believe I would do the same, given the circumstances, as I would be thinking of my family the whole time.

    That wasn't a good reason for him to fire at those robbers. Sorry he's dead, but personally I would've complied and let the insurance company handle the loss.

    Just because you're the good guy with a gun doesn't make you invulnerable. They're leaving the store, nobody's been shot or even threatened. Old maxim, bad choices have bad consequences.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Heck, I'da stayed hidden until the robbers were gone and the cops showed up. While I agree with the sentiment of 'doing the right thing' you have to assess what 'doing the right thing' means.
    Ain't my duty to protect the store. My duty is to go home to my family alive.
