They have spent years and honed it into a fine art of robbing us. As long as the employees were not hurt, the bank got what it deserved.

Somebody a little upset with the bank (Good Enuf). You must be a former employee that got fired for something. So does the same go for if I shoplift at walmart and no one gets hurt it is good for me. And when they raise the prices there bad for you to buy stuff. Makes sense to me.

Everything will be good the Franklin Police are putting their "special forces" or whatever they call it back together. Wait a minute...back together? Why did they take it down anyway? No offense in anyway intended to the officers, as they are doing what the higher ranking dumbasses are telling to do. They are going to talk to all employees of the banks in town and they'll say the same stuff that needs to be said to anyone that is robbed...go along with the robbers requests. Here's one from me...if you get the chance put a .40 caliber round or maybe two in them and it will cut back on the number of robberies. Here's proof...Nashville and Tennessee in general have car jackings every day...they are tough on people in general having handguns. Kentucky has looser laws on handguns...when did you read or hear of a car jacking around here?

Even with that being said it's still a bit disconcerting to suddenly turn the isle at Walmart and find someone with handgun strapped to their waist

In real life that has never happened to you or me, but if were gonna look at stuff like that, look at a situation like this...all of a sudden there is a person randomly shooting in the store, and he's getting closer to where your at. Now whats the guy with the handgun strapped to his side look like to you?

I can't answer for anyone else, but if I knew I wouldn't put it on Topix, I'd call Crimestoppers and get my cool $10,000.00.(Just in case someone tells you who it was.):)

The problem is that crazy people carry guns also, and yes I have seen several people at Walmart with sidearms strapped to their wasit. Everyone does not need to carry a gun.

I agree with you on some crazy people with guns...can you believe some of these people also drive cars! In Kentucky it is perfectly legal to carry a weapon on your side if it is exposed. I don't think management would let you last very long doing that in a Wal-Mart though, but I'm not calling you a liar, but if they have a sign up that says "NO WEAPONS ALLOWED", like most places do, then you sure enough would not last long. We really do not know who is packing and who is not because we have "conceal and carry" laws, which mean with the right training, you can carry a concealed weapon. This takes us back to my original point...see any car jackings going on where this woman or man may have a gun since the laws in this state allow it? I have no problem with everyone who is properly trained carrying a weapon of their choice. In fact I'll add to my last post that if that "crazy" person came in Wal-Mart shooting at everyone, I'd want every one in there carrying a gun wouldn't you?

i am one of those people in walmart ,and everywhere else, that has a gun strapped to my waist. walmart took their signs down long ago. Please remember, MOST criminals will NOT openly carry their firearm. So the majority of the time, if you see a gun on someones waist, they are probably a law abiding citizen who will protect all those around him if need be. That being said, i also carry in banks. If it gets robbed while im in there, if i felt someones LIFE was in danger and i had the chance, i would shoot. There needs to be more law abiding citizens who carry and would do the same.

To "YOU WONT LIKE THIS". even if there is a sign that says NO WEAPONS ALLOWED those are the places that you SHOULD CARRY. Just conceal it instead of out in the open. Those places are usually the first place criminals target because there is not suppose to be anyone else with a gun inside. It IS LEGAL to carry a concealed weapon into those places as long as it is concealed. NO criminal or civil charges can be placed against you if you are seen.

The fact that you have to go for training is good but remember, you still have to be approved through the sheriffs office and a background check is done. Not just anyone can get a concealed permit. I had one in Tenn. but when I moved here, it became invalid. Now I have to pay all over again. it is not cheap.

to newcomer. its cheaper than you think. I am a KY instructor and i do the classes for 60 dollars per person. alot of instructors are charging up to 125 dollars but that is against KY law. I do not do it for the money. I do it because i want to inform all KY residents of the laws and i think ALL law abiding citizens should carry a weapon. After the class you also have to pay 65 dollars to your sheriffs dept. for the background checks.
