Watch: Desperate Philly Gas Station Owner Hires Guards Armed With AR-15s, Wearing Kevlar Vests

Biden’s America is a violent mess. Things have gotten so bad in Dem-run Philly, that you’d be safer walking around in “war-torn” Ukraine. Don’t believe me? Well, listen to this one… a gas station owner has hired guards armed with AR-15s to protect his store. That city has been turned into a typical Democrat hellhole. A forgotten place, where hope and light go to die. And yet, people keep voting for this stuff. It’s unreal. Fox 29 reported that a Philadelphia gas station owner fed up with incessant crime threatening his employees and customers hired heavily armed security guards to watch over his business. Neil Patel, operator of a Karco gas station at Broad and Clearfield streets in North Philadelphia, recruited Pennsylvania S.I.T.E Agents clad with Kevlar vest and AR-15s or shotguns.

“They are forcing us to hire the security, high-level security, state level,” Patel told FOX 29. “We are tired of this nonsense; robbery, drug trafficking, hanging around, gangs.”

The final straw for Patel came after he said his business was vandalized by young people and an ATM machine was stolen. His car was also a casualty of crime around the area.

“We wear Kevlar, we are trained, my guards go to training every other week, they’re proficient with [their guns] and with their taser, they know the law,” Chief Andre Boyer said.

The decision to beef up security has been meet with mixed reactions from residents and neighbors.

“I listen to them, but according to some people, violent people, they carry the guns, they’re not afraid of them? This is the protection for the neighborhood and the customers,” Patel said.

Since hiring the guards, Patel claims his business has been free of loitering and other crime.

Here’s what people online are saying:

“Honestly he is just not only protecting his property but also the ppl who patronize his business”

“His property, his money, his prerogative how he protects himself and his customers”

“Honestly if I lived in Philly I would only go to that specific gas station just to support the owner who’s finally taking the defense of his store into his own hands.”

“It takes a good guy with a gun , to stop a bad guy with a gun” I support the bearing of arms to protect life by those who are trained prudent , sane , morally sound and sober.”

“I say it’s the owner’s choice to hire armed guards.”

“Yes this is what needs to happen all over Philadelphia”

“Thumbs up to the owner, to protect his employees and customers. People have know respect anymore for people’s property or lives. I would like to see someone try something now.”

“Joe Biden’s America, what a fun place this turned out to be” 

“All businesses should adopt this and increase security careers locally”

“These kids are out of control. We need to see more of this. The people aginst this will feel totally different if they were ever held at gunpoint.”

I will tell you what, THAT is the gas station I’d b going to. It’s not only the safest gas station in town, but it’s also probably the safest PLACE in all of Philly, and that’s a very sad commentary for what Dems have done to that city.
