Route 66 Bar shooter sentenced

A former NBC 24 Fugitive of the Week who authorities say opened fire in a wild shootout that sent Route 66 Bar customers running for cover has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison.
You may recall the October 2009 gun battle in which at least five people fired off shots inside the South Toledo Bar. The judge says it looked like something out of the Wild West.
Marquese Robbins was sentenced t seven and a half years on Wednesday for his role in the shootout. Robbins who we profiled on our exclusive Fugitive of the Week series shortly after the incident pleaded no contest to felonious assault.
Footage from a surveillance video of the October 2009 shootout shows gunmen firing shots from inside and outside the bar while customers dashed out the doors.
Police say 20 shots were fired but no one was injured.
Do you think this is a fair sentence? Do you think incidents like these are why concealed carry permit holders should or should not be allowed to carry guns in bars? Post your comments below.
