So you wonder why the store manager didn't whip out his own gun and and be a stand up guy and protect his employees?
Do you think he would have been a store manager very long if anybody in home office discovered he was armed.

Wisconsin has 5.7 million people.

134.000 have CCW permits.

Estimates by those who track those things say less than half of that number carry regularly.

Even though it is legal and widely publicized gun carriers are regularly ostracized by their peers and harassed by police officers who make their own rules as they go.

We have a long way to go culturally speaking.
