    You mean they didn't fill out the yellow forms or anything like that before leaving with the guns?

    Wouldn't that be more a case of shop lifting instead of robbery?
    Heck the gun shop I bought my first gun from "Not actually as I bought it out of state and the chain (Sheels) was also in MN so they transfered it there in a taxi"
    Anyway they left MY Paid in FULL gun on open counter in sporting goods next to fishing supplies. As I couldn't find clerk I walked out and put it into my car. Waited 10min.
    Went back in and had clerk paged. Guess what? He couldn't find my gun. I found out they had lost 3 guns in less then a month and they REFUSED to take simple steps.
    I offered to assist and was clearly told (No Thanks) we do not want to offend any possible coustomers. I now know why it was so much cheaper to buy same gun in ND (Fargo) then in MN Moorhead.

    That would be a shoplifting, unless PA has its laws written very differently than Ohio's.

    Son of a.......I used to live on that same street! Passed by the place a few times, never did go inside........of course, with the additional laws being proposed, I'm sure this will become more and more common...

    i wonder if the clerk asked for id to insure the ammo was going to legal and of age buyers?
    better yet, i wonder if the theives were smart enough to buy 9 and 40 ammo?

    Don't worry, the bad guys will get caught when they submit their firearm transfer of ownership forms to their local police department...They may even flag down a trooper on the way to the police station just to speed the paper work up! This is, of course, the benefit of gun registration! It should work...really, it should...

    Damn....I only live several miles from Falls, and this is the first i've heard of it. I know one of my favorite guns shops here in Wilkes-Barre was held up several years ago. A couple of homeboys (they were from NY or Phila) walked into the shop, stuck a gun in the co-owners (brothers) faces and took several handguns. I do seem to remember something about one or two of the individuals getting caught later on

    Falls is about 10 minutes from where I live . Never been to that shop. I wonder if the owner had video?

    Robbery is larceny through violent or threatening means.
    There were no violent or threatning confrontations.

    (edited the thread title for clarity for us non PA types)

    Per se robbery is a theft accomplished through use of force or fear. No force or fear here. Statutory Burglary (entry onto premises with intent to commit a felony, in this case, the underlying felony is grand theft).
