If you come here with robbery on your mind you will get a blast of this shotgun up your @rse or worse.

Nice idea, but unless she's holding it when customers come in, or there's someone out the back with it peeking out, anyone who robs the place can just tell her not to move, bonk her on the head, or go for it themselves.

I would like to think she keeps it and herself behind the counter!

It would be interesting to see who could get to it first, but not something I would want to try.  Someone with a gun of their own and nothing to lose though...

If it's our family, there's another 2-3 grandma's and grandpa's you don't see.

Good theatre no doubt

 

Downside is it advertises to any prospective robbers & they in turn might tweak their plans to simply execute her as a preliminary measure

At this point of our criminal evolution here, thieves are still not looking for a fight.  They just want to get their loan sharks off their backs.  We'll eventually get to first world liquor store type hold ups/shootouts, Walmart shopping cart walk outs, and home invasions though, that's surely down the road somewhere.

No it's not. 

 

Yes it is, go to the robbery link that was posted in the OP:

 

 

Daily News said this followed an attempted robbery in Muang district of Tak, NE Thailand, when a gold shop owner fired at four would-be robbers hitting and seriously injuring one.

But if you read the OP she's in Songkhla (an 18 hour drive from the quoted robbery in Muang Tak). I think the copy is meant to infer that following publicity of the Tak debacle she's copycatting the shotgun response.
