Chappell Hill bank welcomes concealed handguns
CHAPPELL HILL, Texas -- With a population of just 350 people, what Chappell Hill lacks in size -- it more than makes up for in flair.
“You never know who’s sitting in this bank,” said Ed Smith, president of the Chappell Hill Bank. “If you’re coming in to rob it, I think you’re going to be in a world of hurt.”
Apparently this is the first bank in the nation that actively encourages concealed carry. They've been robbed five times, and are looking for there to not be a sixth time. In a town of 350 people, it's pretty surprising to hear that there have been that many robberies - our town is more than an order of magnitude larger, and we haven't seen a bank robbery in as long as I can remember.
Now, if only they could openly carry into that bank...
That is all.
