Video: Texas Bank Welcomes Customers Carrying Concealed Guns

| by Michael Allen

The Chappell Hill Bank in Chappell Hill, Texas is inviting customers to bring in concealed handguns because it has been robbed five times “by Yankees” (video below).

Chappell Hill Bank President Ed Smith told KHOU-TV: “You never know who’s sitting in this bank. If you’re coming in to rob it, I think you’re going to be in a world of hurt. We’ve been robbed five times. All of them by Yankees.”

A sign on the Chappell Hill Bank's door includes an image of a handgun and reads: “Lawfully concealed carry permitted on these premises,” reports

Smith also suggested gun control laws were not the way to prevent mass shootings: “Everybody wants the government to do something. People need to do things for themselves.”

“People down here have a mindset about taking care of themselves. If we have a flood, I don’t think you’re going to see people sitting in water up to their knees waiting for FEMA to come help them.”
