Gun shop owner kills suspected burglar, injures two others.

Yet another armed store owner defending his life and his property with a lawfully owned firearm.  An AR-15 style rifle no less!  They can be used for good instead of evil.  This type of story does not get the press attention it should.  If the store owner had been killed, the press would be shouting about the “Evils of guns!”


“NORTH AUGUSTA — One man is dead and two are recovering after being shot by a gun store owner during a burglary of his business Thursday morning.

Stephen Bayazes Jr., 57, told officers that he and his wife were asleep in an apartment at the back of the business, Guns & Ammo Gunsmith, 522 Edgefield Road, shortly before 4 a.m. when he awoke after hearing a loud crash and the activation of a silent alarm.

Bayazes grabbed an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and found three men loading guns into a van that had crashed through the side wall of the store.”

One thought on “Gun shop owner kills suspected burglar, injures two others.

  1. If the owner of this store would have been shot several years back If this same store owner would have been shot while he was stealing property from a business we would not be reading about this story that happened. A crook shoots another crook! http://​​b092006.html
    If link does not work google Stephen Bayazes. Should ba at the top in search engines. Gun shop owner not so honest!
