    Richard, You've got to be kidding me. "Leave the six shooter at home". From your comment there, you are a willing victim and are readily available to any bad guy who wishes to do you harm. What you seriously don't realize, those of us who legally conceal carry, train regularly so we won't "Probably miss and shoot a by-stander". We also train to know when to take a shot and to know our background behind the back guy so no one gets hurt. Next time, before you sound off against a legally armed citizen, think about how appreciative you'll be when someone like me happens to be around your "I'm happy to be a victim" mentality and takes care of a bad guy who's threatening your life. I recommend you educate yourself more Richard and familiarize yourself with firearms. Once you stop being ok with being a "willing" victim and stand up for yourself, you'll be a part of what keeps crime in our city from getting worse. The more Bad guys know citizens are carrying, they're less likely to harm us.

    Rollin my eyes! A postal worker was robbed - NOT the post office! Why are you saying the P.O. was robbed?

    To Kathy, you need to reread the article, it says, "Colorado Springs Police"..

    Gee Kathy read it like it was printed and you will find that the grammer is correct, since you left out the word police. So edit yourself for goodness sake. For the rest of the comments, what a waste. If there were any wittnesses that noticed the criminals' race I am sure they would have said so. Dont be so racist, crime in this city seems to be an equal opportunity activity. And for you gun carrying citizens out there, you would probably miss and shoot a by-stander so leave the six shooters at home.

    Get an editor, for goodness sake. "Colorado Springs is ..." -- not "Colorado Springs are ..."

    Post office is a gunfree zone. Its safe for robbers but illegal for citizens to be armed there. At least the robber didn't go postal.

    So why is it that this article makes no mention of the suspect's race (my guess, then, is that he's white), but the mmj robbery story posted today tells us that the suspects were black?

    LOL - strong body odor!
