USA –-( The Courier reports in Conroe, Texas 10-03-16 police reported, four males, dressed in all black entered Jeff’s Jewelry around lunchtime and demanded jewelry, purses and other items.

They opened fire on the store employees and customers, with at least three store workers returning gun fire with an AR15 and an AK-47 rifle.

Arriving Conroe Police Officers found one robber dead in the doorway among shattered glass. The owner, his employees and customers were left shaken but unharmed. The three other robbers fled the scene in the Conroe West strip center in the 4800 block of Texas 105 West.

The owner’s attorney was called to the scene after the incident.

He said “You always have a right to defend yourself, especially when the robber shoots at you,” He said all the witnesses reported the four men started shooting first.

Windows were broken out of the store, and police set up barriers around the crime scene. A manhunt ensued for the three other men. Conroe police located their abandoned getaway vehicle.

However, by 5 p.m., the three men had not been located and are no longer believed to be in the area. The owner was not available for comment after Monday’s attempted robbery.


This is not a story to recommend a way for an armed civilians to combat crime. All that could be done here was done by this prepared business owner. At the same store in November 2014, it was a gang of five with a sledge hammer to smash display cases. They jumped out of a stolen plumbing truck and started into the store. They saw the owner pull up a shotgun, turned around and fled the area.

Having guns for self-defense works! However this is an indication of a growing trend of street gangs operating with military type planning on high risk robberies.

The gangsters are becoming bolder and bolder and our liberal political attitudes are turning America into a war zone. Vote!

The leftwing would prefer that these shop owners be killed instead of having their precious street slime (Blacks or illegals) get harmed in any way…
NEVER, EVER disarm to any man, judge, lawmakers or tyrant.


YES! Americans defending themselves! Not only is everybody alive, because we don’t know if the robbers would have led everyone to the back and executed them, but it sends a message to the criminals. WE WILL FIGHT YOU! Our legal system may give you chance after chance to victimize us, but not all of us will meekly stand by and be your victims! More and more of us are arming up, and we will not go quietly into the night!
