Store Clerk Scares Off Robbers With AR-15: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Sunday in Michigan`s Upper Peninsula, two masked men who appeared in Shawn Schank`s convenience store in Shingleton, Mich., reportedly got quite a surprise. Schank, a National Guardsman who spent a year in Afghanistan, emerged from a back room of the store carrying a loaded AR-15 assault weapon and pointed it directly at the would-be robbers, causing them to flee.


Schank said that he wasn`t afraid, just `irritated and ticked off` that the men would try to steal from the cash register. The men, seeing the gun, tried to hide behind the counter, Schank said, but he kicked them and pointed the rifle at them. He said that one of the men then pulled off his mask and pleaded,  `Don`t shoot,` then they fled. Schank called 911."


This story illustrates that it`s beneficial for employers to hire veterans; vets won`t panic and make the wrong decisions in a stressful situation. Veterans have dealt with much worse in the mountains of Afghanistan and the deserts of Iraq.

This incident also makes it clear that it`s incumbent upon homeowners and business owners to arm themselves to protect their lives, property and livelihood.

If you can`t handle an AR-15, then by all means buy a handgun to protect yourself and your family. Friendly reminder: A firearm will do you little good if you don`t go to the gun range, and practice, practice and practice.

The dirtbags were quickly apprehended by the police and charged with breaking and entering.

Moral of this story: Hire a veteran! Buy a gun to defend yourself against evildoers!

The AOL article included this amusing comment from Mr. Sauer land:
