Woman robbed at southside F’ville bank ATM

A woman depositing money in the ATM at Fayetteville’s South Glynn Street Chase Bank after dark July 25 was robbed at gunpoint by a lone assailant, police said.

Fayetteville Police spokesperson Debbie Chambers said the incident occurred at approximately 9:30 p.m. as a woman approached the ATM to make a monetary deposit.

The woman was in process of making the deposit when a man holding a handgun came up to her and demanded that she give him the money and leave the area, Chambers said.

Chambers said the robber was described as being either Hispanic or as a light-skinned black male.

The woman left the scene and called police from her vehicle, Chambers said, adding that the woman saw the man flee on foot.

Det. Mike Whitlow said investigators will be reviewing the tape from the bank’s video system.

Guns are good to have close at hand but

most people won't or can't use them.

A well designed cane wielded as a baton would work wonders in most cases.

It's perfectly legal and non threatening until used correctly.

Why in the world do you open carry? It seems to me like it makes more sense to conceal your weapon.

Maybe, maybe not. In the winter I conceal but this time of year it's too hard.

Weapons carry

Majormike,

It sounds like you're saying if a person open carries he does not need a Georgia Weapons License. To carry off your property you must have a GWL. If you are law enforcement and you believe open carry is legal without a license that just makes it easier for us citizens to carry without be bothered. If you are a citizen, you are spreading false info that could get someone arrested. BTW, I'm one of those people open carrying.

Liferfrom65 - Open carry

Although I possess a concealed carry permit, I have been under the impression for years that anyone (not prohibited by law) could carry openly. I was wrong! I stand corrected. Thank you.

MajorMike: You and me both

After checking OPenCarry and georgiapacking and the state law, open carry in most circumstances does require the now-named GA Weapons Carry License. I don't know when this changed because I certainly remember when open carry was OK in GA and any type of concealed carry(even in your vehicle if it wasn't in "plain sight") required the GA Firearms License aka CC permit. I don't open carry myself so I haven't paid much attention to the law regarding that, but I would have sworn you would have been right about OC being OK in GA without a license. Now, time for me to see if I have overlooked anything regarding CC that may have changed.

Gun laws

Yes, the laws have changed significantly in the last few years (for the better) thanks to Georgiacarry.org. The vague public gather law is gone, you can have a gun in your car in a church parking lot and the non-sterile areas of the airport are no longer off limits.

Actually, you don't posses a concealed carry permit if was issued in Georgia. You have either a Geogia Firearms Licesnse or the new Georgia Weapons License. Go here (http://www.georgiapacking.org/index.php) and find all the answers to weapons carry in Georgia.

Good info Liferfrom65

I've got a Geogia Firearms License. Is there any difference between it and the Georgia Weapons License?

It is the older Geogia Firearms Licesnse. In fact it expires next month. I quess I'd better get cracking and get over to the probate court.

Let's wait

for the video replay.....

then we can tell if this one is for real.

If it is, it continues the pattern we have seen over the past couple of years.

Let's don't forget that there are a lot of people out of work and they need to buy their drugs.

Bank robberies?

Fayette is getting renowned attention lately for bank robberies!

There is a movie something about "The Great Minnesota Bank Robbery" by Cole Younger, etc. They were all white of course, but now we seem to have most races involved in it!

Would it be possible to form a standing Posse on horseback at each end of Fayette and one in the center, ready to gallop at the warning by cell phone? Most of the robbers don't seem to have a car.

I noticed we now have a new Hawk 1 hellufacopter---maybe it can also be standing by 24/7 with props flowing and bring the score for the old Hawk 1 and the new one to Robbers 76, Hawk 1-- 1, from Hawk 1-- 0?

Sure must be a lot of dope cash floating around---who keeps those books? How is it notated on the detailed budget as to gas costs, insurance, etc.?

I'm betting that business is

I'm betting that business is booming at Autrie's Armory these days.

Sad to say, but since none of the recent bank robbers have been caught, I only see the robbery rate going up.

We don't all have guns in our pocket yet blasting away at them!

Guns in our pockets

This would be a much safer place if we did. I don't go anywhere without one on me and one in the car. Don't care about which city, which county, which "bubble", etc. This guy going down at the hands of the victim would change the view of what can be gotten away with around here. Instead of watching it decline, let's act. Granted, it's not for everyone, but those that can, should. A criminals greatest fear isn't the police, but an armed citizen.

I agree. The police do a good job but they can't be everywhere. We need to be ready to defend ourselves. I'd love to see Fayette adopt a law like Kennasaw.

Oddly enough, I was at

Oddly enough, I was at Autrey's Monday evening picking up a pocket pistol.

I had hoped this type of crime would stay up near the Pavilion, but I guess the slow spread southward was inevitable. Lived here all my life, and I don't feel safe anywhere in town anymore.

The Clayco thugs have won.

ElVee - pocket pistol

Autreys' is a class operation but I would also suggest Coe Firearms Company in Fayetteville (770-712-7855). I just gave my youngest son a Taurus 709 Slimline 9mm for a graduation present (WGU) from Coe's. What an excellent "pocket" pistol with more than adequate knockdown power.

Sadly crime is everywhere now. While there is no escape from that reality, the crime rate is lower in Fayette County thanks to a number of factors; 1. better & more agressive law enforcement, 2. a higher percentage of the populace is (LEGALLY) armed and willing to fight back, and 3. The demographic has a higher education level and produces far fewer homegrown thugs to roam the streets at night.

Lastly, the Clayton County thugs have NOT won - the battle is ongoing. You don't see any of those "Clayton is ours, Fayette is next" T-shirts anymore do you? The gun shops in the immediate area do a thriving business simply because law adiding citizens are increasingly arming themselves to fight back. As I stuff a 'mater (home grown) and mayo sandwich in my mouth while I post this, there is a Glock 21 (.45 cal) less than 18 inches from my hand.

Might I also point out that an increasing number of Fayette citizens are carrying openly. A CC permit is not required for open carry.

I had never heard of Coe's before so I looked them up. Are they just a dealer that you can ship online orders to? Or do they have a range and inventory on hand? Also I saw a sign in PTC for a business called Blue Armory. Do you know anything about them?

Coe's - The owner is an attorney and has the gun shop in his suite of offices off of Ginger Cake road. I refer to it as a simi-public establishment. They have a sizable amount of inventory on display including weapons for the gentler sex. I made note of a pink .357 magnum w/ a name brand. In my case he had the Slimline in stock but I had him order it anyway since I was several months out on my need and I didn't want to deplete his show inventory when there was no need to. No range. What Fayette County really, really needs is is a good outdoor range. I can't see that happening though.

I have heard of Blue something or other Armory but I have no clue as to where it is located.
