  1. At some point pharmacies will install bulletproof glass and your transactions will be conducted via those metal drawers that many convenience stores use during the night.

  2. Bulletproof glass will protect employees, but it won’t stop armed robberies. They continue to happen in banks. If it stopped bank robberies, all banks would install them.

  3. I’ll bet the gun was a fake. Perp knew the “rules” and flashing the gun would yield immediate compliance. Perhaps he doesn’t know the rule that flashing a toy gun is still armed robbery.
