Fort Worth police have arrested two teenagers after a two-hour standoff with SWAT members outside a gun store early Wednesday. The teens, ages 15 and 16, remained on the roof of the gun store for two hours before surrendering.

[su_center_ad]According to Dallas News, police officers responded to a burglar alarm at around 12:15 a.m. at the Noble Gun Store. When officers arrived on the scene, the two suspects were on the roof of the store and refused to get down, police said.

Police say the teenagers climbed onto the roof and shimmied their way down an air conditioning vent and into the store, according to WFAA.

The teens appeared to have used store shelves as a ladder to work their way onto the floor.

The SWAT team and police negotiators were called in after the teens refused police orders to come down.

The suspects surrendered around 2:10 a.m., police said.

The unidentified teenagers have been charged with burglary of a building.

    Given that they were arrested without injury, and not shot on sight, I’m gonna go ahead and wager that they’re white kids.

    I guess the gun-nuts are running out of shopping malls and grocery stores, so they go after their suppliers.

    They just couldn’t wait for that “Obama’s Taking Your Guns, Again!!!” sale!

    And where were the Open Carry “good guys” to stop these robbers?

    • whatthe46 October 8th, 2014 at 10:17 pm

      i’m surprised they don’t have a bedroom in the back.

    • Skydog2 October 8th, 2014 at 11:08 pm

      People who believe in open carry rights should be stopping robbers?

      • Suzanne McFly October 9th, 2014 at 8:05 am

        Isn’t that the “reason” for open carry, so they can “stop” the bad guy? Or is the truth they just want to carry a big “penis” so they feel better about themselves?

        • Skydog2 October 9th, 2014 at 8:17 am

          I thought it was so they could defend themselves not run around town chasing criminals.

          • Suzanne McFly October 9th, 2014 at 8:29 am

            Defend themselves in Kroger? How many “bad guys” are shopping at Kroger? Why can’t you just admit there are places for guns and there are places where guns should not be permitted?

          • Skydog2 October 9th, 2014 at 8:49 am

            I 100% agree with you.

    2 very white kids actually broke the law and robbed a gun store, the cops waited 2 hours and talked the kids down. No tear gas, bullets, tasors, pepper spray…just words. Now what if they were black or hispanic?

      “The cop hit the teen with one blow after stopping him for smoking a cigarette, hitting him so hard he now has neurological problems, according to the boy’s family.” 17-year-old Marcel Hamer. check that story out.

        dear god, how much more can this country take.The rwnj’s are correct, their will be a revolution but it will come from the minorities who are being killed and maimed

        • whatthe46 October 8th, 2014 at 10:36 pm

          you got that right! it was also caught on tape, only i didn’t view it because i can’t stomach it anymore. its bad enough i can visualize it when reading the accounts. (so yes there’s actually a video of the incident, rather assault)

        • Khary A October 9th, 2014 at 12:22 pm

          Tracey, that is exactly what they are hoping for. They want an excuse to take violent action against the black and brown of the country. All of the attacks on my gene-kin are simply ways to goad the larger BnB populace to war in the streets so as they can quell the “servant” rebellion and show dominance.

          It’s a fight they (with any luck ) will never see because when faced with the idea that they actually have to live up to the words scratched on that scrap of parchment they so lovingly clutch to shreds in their blood stained hands, the idea of armed conflict is more palpable.

    Hopefully these teens are tried as adults.

    NRA LaPierre’s Texas good guys with guns, may end up disarmed like Guber Perry who is now legally barred from possessing or buying any Guns & Ammo.

      For some reason I have this feeling he still has his guns…
