How NOT to Rob a Smoke Shop in Texas

Smoke Alley, a smoke shop in Houston, Texas had an attempted robbery – emphasis on the “attempted.” The employee was armed with a reported CZ-75 SP-01 9mm pistol and sent the robber running very quickly – so quickly that the robber smashed straight through the storefront door on his way out and a bullet in his shoulder.

While the employee, Raleigh, gets a few style points for not even dropping his cigarette, it definitely would have been better to lose a single cigarette and get two hands on the handgun for more accurate shots.

“What went through my head was, ‘I got one of those too.'” said Raleigh.

The employee did not have a concealed carry license (CCW), but Texas law permits conceal carry within the bounds of your own property under the Castle Doctrine law – which is why Raleigh stopped at the store front. Raleigh started carrying a gun at work because someone else robbed him last year.

Yet another incident where life and property is saved through lawful gun ownership – something that anti-gunner still somehow claim doesn’t exist.
