Armed citizen shoots suspect during attempted bank robbery in Missouri
Guns Save Lives ^ | 2 March, 2013 | Jennifer Cruz

An armed man attempted to rob the First Security Bank in Trimble, Mo. Friday afternoon, March 1, according to Kansas City’s KCTV 5 News. However, the attempt landed the would-be robber in the hospital with a gunshot wound, as he didn’t anticipate to be met by an armed citizen.

The man entered the bank, pulled a gun and demanded money. He was shot, then attempted to flee in his vehicle. Speculation is that he was shot by a bank employee, but this yet to be confirmed; only that he was shot by an armed civilian.

I’d like to find out how many fewer bank robberies there are YTD in Missouri.Won’t take long for criminals to figure out that things are getting dangerous for them there.

He was shot, then attempted to flee in his vehicle.

A sad story. A better ending would have been

He was shot numerous times by several armed citizens and died immediately on a rubber carpet, which made the cleanup very easy.

If you really want to get a criminal’s attention,show ‘em the color of their own blood.

...he was shot by an armed civilian.

A pet peeve: I wish the presstitutes would stop referring to citizens as "civilians", when the article is not dealing with the military.

It gives the impression that citizens are subordinate to their employees: the police, fire departments, politicoes and bureaucrats.

OTOH, I suppose I should be grateful that they even deign to report stories like this in any way, shape, or form.

Well, he’s in luck. He’ll have the time now to write that children’s book he’s been putting off for so long.

We were in a Credit Union yesterday. When we got out, my wife remarked I probably should have left my gun in the car because they had signs telling folks to remove sunglasses/hats/hoods. I told her that was for identification purposes - folks that tried to hide their identity in a bank could stir the beginning of suspicion. Since the establishment didn’t have a “No guns allowed” sign posted, CCW folks were being invited to remain armed.

MI is Michigan and not Missouri, not saying you don’t know that, but just making sure.
And I am not able to get to the link on my phone, but why was the gun in an area accessable to a child?

Yeah its Michigan. The officer was at work when it happened so it must have been a personal weapon.

Not at all. Failure to give said info means either that the perp was "of color" or a registered Democrat, or both. Any other categories would have full identification given, especially if the subject was white, Republican or conservative.

The prohibition on CCW in banks is no longer in effect, is it?

There may be a prohibition in effect at the State level, somewhere. It is hard to be sure. There never was a federal prohibition on carry in banks.
