…and hope they don’t shoot you anyway.
The clerk handed over the cash drawer. One of the suspects hit the clerk in the head with the register drawer. As the robbers left, the suspect with the gun turned and fired at the clerk, striking the clerk in a leg.
Sounds to me like the clerk was lucky the perpetrator was a bad shot.
Personally, I think I’d rather have the means to defend myself available than to trust my well-being to the good nature and kind spirit of violent criminals.
