Let’s see isn’t there a current discussion going on about guns in grocery stores? Oh, yeah. Moms Demand Action likes to claim that no one needs a gun while grocery shopping and is trying to push super market giant Kroger into banning the legal carry of firearms in their stores.

According to a local Fox affiliate:

48 year old Robert Lawson of Imperial was pronounced dead at the scene. Employees at Karsch’s Village Market on Highway M in Barnhart had called for help. They said the intoxicated man was causing a disturbance.

Before Jefferson County deputies could arrive, employees escorted the man from the store while trying to convince him to give up the keys to his pickup truck.

“The victim, at some point in time during the conversation, produced a hand gun and pointed it at the store employee. The store employee drew his weapon and fired his weapon at least twice, maybe three times, striking the individual,” said Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer.

The worker had a valid carry permit and the sheriff indicated that the incident is being treated as self defense.

So, who needs a gun at the grocery store again?

This is the 46th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Missouri and the 1,339th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
