Welcome to The Bank of Concealed Carry

Before even walking in the door of People’s Bank and Trust in Troy, Missouri, the criminal in the Chucky mask should have realized his dreams of a successful bank robbery would not pan out at that particular location

A bold insignia of a handgun welcomes those who carry concealed.

“Management recognizes the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as an unalienable right of all citizens.”

Not only does the management of the bank recognize this right, bank president David W. Thompson, participates enthusiastically.

Bank employees asked a man to remove his Halloween mask when he came up to the counter Tuesday afternoon. He ignored them and patted his pocket, indicating that he had a weapon, then said, according to employees, “No, you gotta give me all your money.”

Employees followed protocol, following the robber’s instructions by filling a bag with a total of $4779, and remaining calm.

Meanwhile, Thompson was meeting with a salesperson when the receptionist buzzed him, interrupting the meeting. He could tell by the look on the employees’ faces that something was wrong. Then he saw a man in a Halloween mask holding one of the bank’s red money bags.

Without hesitation, Thompson, who always carries his weapon, a Colt .380, followed the man out to his truck, which was parked in a handicapped space at the front of the bank. Another bank employee, who also carries concealed, had followed Thompson to provide back-up. Thompson pointed his gun at the man and ordered him to get out of the truck.

“Sir, get out of the truck,” Thompson, 58, recalled demanding. “You’re not going anywhere.”

And when the man put his hand in his jacket pocket, as if he had a weapon, Thompson scolded him again.

“You don’t want to go there,” Thompson said. “This will end badly.”

Fortunately the robber listened. It turned out the man had no weapon of his own. Thompson and another bank official who also carries his own weapon pulled the man from the truck and held him at gunpoint until police arrived.

“I didn’t have time to get scared,” said Thompson, a life member of the National Rifle Association who supports concealed-carry laws. “I was excited. Your adrenaline pumps. He robbed a bank, he menaced my employees, and I don’t allow that.”

Thompson and his fellow employee held the masked robber at gunpoint until the police arrived.

The suspect, Donald Ray Lee of Lincoln County, was actually a customer of the bank, carrying one of their debit cards in his wallet.  He told police he had only gone into the bank to trick or treat. Lee did not have a weapon.

“You can’t fix stupid, so it’s always good to have stupid off the streets,” said Thompson.

    Oh sure, not when scumbag goes in front of a Judge, he will claim it was only a Halloween prank. However, since he carried the money bag all the way to his vehicle, I doubt the jury will buy that argument.

      not = now

    Wait and See- the bankers will be held liable for civil rights abuse and the criminal will sue them for mental trama and win. DOJ will tout it as a step in the right direction for the safety of the masses.

    • SKIP

      Sadly, an all too possible scenario, especially if the “prankster” is black!

  • http://NONE Arizona

    WHEN I was a kid you never heard of real crimes,only read about them in 10 cent novels,that happened in the 1920s or 30s,then the big push came to let the police gang handle it,crime took off in a big way after that,and they pushed every kind of stupid law you can imagine,pretty soon the prisons were full and crime was off and running in america,NOW THE POLICE GANG ARE EVEN ATTACKING THE CHILDREN……..GO BUY A GUN AND FIRE THE “POLICE GANG” YOU NEVER NEEDED “THEM” TO START WITH………

  • http://NONE Arizona

    THERE ARE COUNTRIES,who insist on the people to carry guns and the first thing a tourist notices is theres no crime at all,humm,you also notice there prisons are empty and there’s no police to be seen anywhere,THERE NOT NEEDED,the taxes are low and the people are living their life without worries,or tickets ,fines,courts who rob them blind,gangs running lose everywhere,crooked politicians spending there money on stupid wars,there children being molested by freaks,or cps kiddnaping them to sell,NO the only ones running loose in the streets are the children who have no worries,they know there safe………

    • SKIP

      WHAT countries would those be Arizona, I have traveled and worked in many of the countries and NONE require the carrying of weapons and in fact, doing so may result in LOOOOOOOOONG prison terms. It is illegal in most countries to even OWN a weapon and here in Afghanistan, for a citizen to have a weapon, to include long knives, is worth 20 years in prison, no appeal, no jury or anything, just get caught with it and you are guilty! No offense meant, just personal experience.

      • NRA Sucks

        Switzerland comes to mind… Military service is compulsory and you are supposed to maintain your firearms as their (<-spelled correctly) "National Guard" is the citizen army. However, it is nothing as delusional as Arizona portrays.

    This is a great story, and one that proves concealed carry is something to admire, not denigrate. Responsible citizens should be allowed to protect themselves. In this situation, things worked out, and as mentioned above, the crime rates are down where CWPs are allowed. I can’t for the life of me figure out why the anti-gunnists are so opposed. I’m guessing they would change their minds, were they the victims of dangerous crimes.
