COLUMBIA — Two people held up a Wendy’s restaurant at gunpoint early Monday morning, and police are now searching for two suspects.

Police responded to a robbery call at the Wendy’s at 2116 Bernadette Drive at about 2 a.m. Reports said two people took an undisclosed amount of money from the restaurant and fled on foot. No shots were fired and there were no injuries.

A news release from the Columbia Police Department described the individuals as a black male with a skinny build, about 5 feet 7 inches tallwith dreadlocks and a black female, light skinned and wearing a black shirt and black shorts.

There are no suspects yet, but police are checking mall surveillance tapes for more information.

Too bad one of the employees did not have a CCW in that case. The crooks might of had a huge surprise.

Yes, but this isn't Tombstone, AZ and Wendy's isn't the O. K. Corral.

I'm very comfortable with folks having guns in their homes, but not so much so with them hauling them around on their persons. Not a question of having the RIGHT, just one of wisdom.

This gets back to a lengthy discussion last week: just because the Bill of Rights says you CAN (or can't) do something does not necessarily mean that you MUST do that thing.

@Ellis Smith right it is personal choice but one of these days crooks like this due to their own bad choices are going to meet up with somebody practicing their 2nd Amendment choice and the crooks might just end up with more than they can handle. Several times when I was young I was thankful my father had his CCW,his 38 Special and the know how to use it. Our travels in the 70's took us to a lot of places carrying a lot of cash and guns to gun shows all over Northern California.

And here we have Carlos upholding the Second while disparaging the First last week and several other times in recent memory. Honor all the Bill of Rights, no matter what, I say. Of course, the Wendy's employees may not have been able to carry on private property that they did not own, i.e. the restaurant.

@John Schultz Oh here is our beloved Constitutionalist who loves to point out to others their wrongs when it comes to the Bill Of Rights but on the other hand only quotes them when it suits his own personal agenda.

Carlos, please do find me such a situation where I have argued against following the Constitution because I didn't like the proscribed language. I don't think you can.

@John Schultz there are too many to list and you would just deny it anyway so why should I bother. That is the excuse you give a lot of times so I guess I'll use it too.

Thank you for conceding defeat and not being able to back up your claims, as usual. I'll also point out that your claim about me is bogus as well, just like your arguments. Have a nice day in DenialLand.

You should really look in the mirror when you say these things but then again Libertarians are really stuck on themselves.

At least I don't go around lieing about what other people say online and not backing up my claims. You must be a real tough individual to be so divorced from the truth.

@John Schultz there is nothing you can do to torment me. Now run along and play with your statue of liberty doll.

Lacinda, one of us has a full-time job and two kids, but still finds time to educate himself on issues and not be a complete jerk here and the other paper in Columbia. The other of us doesn't. Can you guess which is which?

@lacinda florez truthfully both us us have full time jobs of one form or the other and both of us surf the internet news agencies daily for new view points,news articles and other things that will help us in helping others move forward and understand the issues.

We each have our opinionated view points that sometimes lead to heated discussions but isn't that what makes others get thinking more than they might normally? I wish others in our community would be more vocal so everybody can see the many sides of all of the issues that face us all.

I applaud the Mike Martins,the John Clarks,the David Rosmans,the Colonel Millers,the Rick Gurleys and all others who are willing to stand up and let their voices be heard no matter how they might choose. I might not agree with them but they exercise their rights to their opinions and to stand up and defend them which we all should be doing in this distressing economic and political time of turmoil.

Yes I have my free time on my hands but I make my free time work the best I can in being able to help others not just locally but on a broader national scale too.
