Store owner who shot and killed robber the other day initially forgot to bring her firearm to work

Just yesterday, we reported on a store owner who was robbed at knife-point by a criminal with a lengthy record. It was at this point that the store owner, 46-year-old Sharon Doyle, drew her firearm and shot the robber in the chest.

What we have just learned is that Doyle initially forgot her firearm at home that morning. After realizing this, she made the decision to go home in order to retrieve it. What a great decision that turned out to be.

The man walked into her store with a knife and announced that a robbery was taking place. He emptied the register and then held his knife up to Doyle’s chest. Unbeknownst to the man, Doyle had on her a 38 caliber revolver and also many years as a Secret Service Agent and Philadelphia police officer.

This serves as a reminder that, when we decide to carry a firearm with us, we should be carrying everyday no matter what. Criminals don’t take a day off.
