— Raleigh police are searching for two armed men who robbed two people at gunpoint late Saturday near the entrance to the North Carolina State University Club on Hillsborough Street.

Police say the victims were walking to their vehicles after returning from the North Carolina State Fair around 11:30 p.m. when the armed men approached them and stole their wallets. No one was injured.

The two robbers then drove off in a tan or cream-colored Lincoln.

    AND a small number of people vote who have no right to vote, so based on your logic everyone should be turned away at the polls since it is possible that one of them could be fraudulent.

    Can't do too much to the criminals, BUT we can all remember Mr. Troxler at election time.

    "Again, great job, Mr. Troxler, ADVERTISING the fact that law abiding fair patrons would be unarmed returning to their cars."

    Troxler had no choice after the gun fanatics pushed the issue. Sorry these 2 folks got robbed, but they didn't get shot, so for all we know, them having guns might have escalated the situation.

    Anyway, I'm glad Troxler put the kibbosh on all this nonsense about taking guns to the fair! As has been pointed out in other articles, tons of stuff fall out of people's pockets on the rides - wallets, keys, money. We don't need to add guns to that list.

    "Police say the victims were walking to their vehicles after returning from the North Carolina State Fair around 11:30 p.m."
    The persons who are to blame are the perpetrators and Steve Troxler. Also the security is not even close to a stringent as ol'stevee promised.

    The robbery did NOT happen at the fair, it happened after people left the fair, where the armed LEO's were NOT. I hope Mr. Troxler is proud of his "gun Free zone" that allowed criminals to know they had unarmed people to prey upon. It was NOT at the fair most people were concerned about needing arms, it was in the parking lots and getting to them where the robberies occurred, as in this instance; these fair patrons might have had their gun in the car, a lot of good it did them if they did. Again, great job, Mr. Troxler, ADVERTISING the fact that law abiding fair patrons would be unarmed returning to their cars.

    Exaggerate much? Typical emotional based response.

    "BTW, schools ARE amongst those "gun free" zones. How's that workin' out across the country?"

    Far, far better than the alternative proposed by the NRA - having all students, teachers, and school employees armed to the teeth. Then if someone started shooting EVERYONE could start shooting. I'm sure the outcome would be glorious.

    How about a description of the robbers.

    If you are naive enough to think that law enforcement exists to protect you all the time then you must live in a dream world.
