As the reporter noted in the clip below, “an armed white male entered the bank and loudly demanded cash – unfortunately for the suspect, he was not the only person in that bank carrying a weapon.”
Fox 4 News reported:
The FBI said a man walked into the bank, showed a weapon and demanded cash. He was shot in the face by a civilian in the bank during the attempted robbery and then left, the FBI said.
Police apparently pursued the car down 169 Highway to I-435 and put down spikes to stop the car. The pursuit ended at I-435 just south of 152 Highway.
The robber was taken to the hospital and as of yesterday, the his condition was not known.

Trimble residents say that incidents like these do not happen often in the small town, which is located about 30 miles north of Kansas City. However, they also say that there is a high rate of concealed carry permit holders in the area.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 19.
Meanwhile anti-gun insanity on display in FLA:
Student gets 3 day suspension after wrestling away gun:
FORT MYERS, Fla. – A 16-year-old Cypress Lake High School student, who wrestled a loaded revolver away from a teen threatening to shoot, is being punished.
The student grappled the gun away from the 15-year-old suspect on the bus ride home Tuesday after witnesses say he aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him.
The student, who Fox 4 has agreed not to identify because he fears for his safety, says there’s “no doubt” he saved a life by disarming the gunman. And for that he was suspended for three days.
“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” the student said. “Not taking no pity.”
The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
“No doubt,” the student said, “he was going to shoot him point blank.”
The teen we spoke to and authorities both confirm the Revolver was loaded. According to the arrest report the suspect, who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor, was “pointing the gun directly” at another student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when the student we spoke with says he and two others tackled the teen and wrestled away the gun. The next day the school slapped him with a three day suspension.
“It’s dumb,” he said. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”
According to the referral, he was suspended for being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present and given an “emergency suspension.”
