I would bet $10 the owner of this gas-station store is a Democrat because only Democrats believe in word magic and only Democrats can be this stupid.
On March 19, 2014, a Mississippi concealed weapons permit (CWP) holder, a white male in his 30s, walked into Keith’s Superstore — a convenience store attached to a Chevron gas station at 7843 Highway 11 in Lumberton, MS.
WDAM TV reports that the man with the CWP saw attempted robber 29-year-old Lamont Williams stabbing the female store manager behind the counter. So the armed Good Samaritan took out his concealed gun, for which he has a permit, and held Williams at gunpoint until the police arrived.
The manager was taken to a hospital in Hattiesburg. Thankfully, her injury was not severe.
If it were not for the concealed weapons permit holder who just happened to walk in the store, the manager might have been killed by Williams.
The next day, Rick Ward of Mississippi Gun News contacted Keith’s Superstore supervisor Bob, who told Ward the store did NOT have a “No Guns” sign on its door at the time.
So what did the store do, after a Concealed Weapons Permit holder had heroically stopped an armed robber from killing the store’s manager?
As reported by Eric Reed for BuzzPo, June 25, 2014:
It has just been confirmed that Keith’s Superstore has posted a “No Guns” signs on their front The picture of their entry doors is below. .
It has been further confirmed that these signs just appeared recently, and were not up at the time of the March 2014 stabbing.
I of course called Keith’s Superstore in Lumberton, MS to find out what their logic was. Long story short, they were quite rude, and refused to answer any questions pertaining to this incident. Perhaps I should’ve asked why they didn’t post a “No Knives” sign!
