Always Be Aware of Your Surroundings

The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reported on November 18th that on Nov. 9, a man who had just purchased a gun and ammunition at the Fredericksburg Gander Mountain was returning to his vehicle and was the victim of an attempted robbery where a black man attempted to take the weapon out of his hands. The victim yelled and kicked the suspect, who ran past another store in the shopping center, toward Task Force Drive.

Surveillance tapes show two black men entering Gander Mountain together, standing near the victim when he was purchasing the gun and then leaving the store before the victim did. The victim identified one of the black men as the same man who attempted to rob him. During the Holiday Season these types of attacks increase so folks should be aware of who is around them when purchasing firearms and when leaving the gun store or gun show with them.

Hat tip to VSSA member Greg Harrod for passing along this tip.
