Major cities like Kansas City and St. Louis are heavily populated by democrats; as such, they have some weird gun laws.

They never said what town/city in Missouri where the incident occurred in; but the bank president wasn't arrested; so we can assume that he wasn't in a major city.

No, I'm all for CCW and self defense but what he did is stupid. Police don't exactly have a lot of time to figure things out when responding to a bank robbery.....

"Hey that guy over there looks like he is carjacking some guy in his truck and he is armed."

W regards to "This bank recognizes the 2nd amendment bla bla".

This is awesome and I wish every business did that. When I see a business w a "NO Firearms" sign it pretty much makes me want to cry.

(Unless it's a place that serves alcohol) just what is the point of putting a "No Firearms" sign up at your business? What does it accomplish besides informing criminals that they need not worry about being shot in your store if they rob it?

He seems to have made a choice to follow the guy out the door from behind rather than confronting him at the counter. The robber apparently didn't have a weapon in hand at that point, so the bank president probably had a good drop on him.

As for having to kill the other guy, that's not what you want to have happen, but it was a robbery and if it came down to that, the cops would have had to kill him, too. The bank robber is the guy putting everyone in that position, being the kind of inconsiderate dick who goes around robbing people.

Opening scenes of The Dark Knight. The Joker and his crew are robbing a bank that is owned by the mob, and the bank manager (pictured) comes out shooting.

FWIW, there are so many things wrong with that opening sequence that it's hard to keep count, but the choreography, the direction and the writing carry it along so well that you don't stop to question it until you're in the car park after the movie.

What, prey tell, are those laws? 'Cause while St. Louis and Kansas City challenged their requirement to participate in CCW, they lost. Open carry is illegal in Kansas City and St. Louis, but that's not unusual. So I'll repeat what was asked before, "?"

They challenge open carry and conceal carry all the time. You'll have to be more specific. Some of them include provisions that allow you to store a gun on your horse; the old laws that are still on the book are fun. One law I do know about is; it is illegal to walk around with a loaded weapon; I forget which city did that, but I know one or the other did.

More specifically, when the state Concealed Carry law was passed, K.C. and St. Louis challenged the law on the grounds that it was unfunded...the Supreme Court of Missouri rejected their challenge.

Maybe St. Louis? It's not the case in Kansas City, for concealed carry; open carry is illegal in most of Missouri (but not by state law). I do know that some areas of Kansas were forced to allow Open Carry, but many don't allow carrying loaded weapons.

The usual train of thought is for the tellers to get the robber away from the customers by forking over some money, and that seems to be what happened here. The President proceeded to take the guy down outside of the bank.

Honestly speaking, if you're going to arrest a bank robber then you don't want to do it while he's got a dozen hostages. So yes a teller would be in hot water if they tried to play hero inside the bank.

That is a valid point....however. If a bank teller followed a robber outside and attempted apprehension I'd bet every one of those stolen dollars they'd be fired on the spot. In fact, I'd be surprised if their insurance company wasn't raising all kinds of hell with the board of directors today. This could have gone very differently in very many ways.

Thats ballsy as hell, what made you so confident that you wouldnt have that right stripped from you ever since Clinton was elected? As shiatty a pill as it was to swallow, if George W had lost either presidential election we would have had a different SCOTUS decision on the 2nd.

i feel that people who are guilty of crime should have to pay all the costs associated with their nonsense. taxpayers should not be burdened by scumbags. and in the same sense, huge corporations who make big bucks illegally and pay tiny fines when caught, that shiat should go right out the window too. i'm not holding my breath on any of this pie in the sky.

Its a nice idea but too many changes need to be made to our legal system before implementing something that draconian, I don't want somebody caught with a joint having to pay for 6 months of housing. I know a guy that sat out the maximum penalty for a joint (6 mo. in county in TX) waiting for a court date because he couldn't afford private counsel.

You seem like you are close to this situation. So if i get this correctly, from reading between the lines of your post.....

An employee of this bank can carry a concealed weapon on the job.
An employee of this bank can apprehend robbers.
Because of family nepotism, the insurance company is willing to overlook the liability that could be involved.
The bank pres will never get shot and killed or get anyone else shot and killed because he knows how to shoot unarmed animals in Africa.
