Type of Suggestion:
Script

Explanation of your Suggestion:
Robbable Stores/Gas Station Clerks fight back.

Add a chance where if the robber is attempting to rob a store/gas station with a non-threatening weapon and/or Class 2 weapon or Lower, the Clerk will draw a hidden weapon and shoot the robber.

Obviously the lower the class of weapon used, the higher the chance of the Clerk will shoot the robber and vice-versa.

Why are you suggesting this?
Add additional risk to robbing stores/gas stations.

I think this would take away from the encouragement of using guns less often, at the moment its just gun gun gun, if you make it so using melee weapons can get you shot by an NPC it'll just mean people use a gun EVERY time.

I think it'd be funny as fuck to get gatted by an NPC, it just would just increase gun usage imo.

So we can go with if the robber is using a class 2 or lower and they fail the courage-check, they get blasted.

Encouraging less gunplay is a long-term goal although we can't shy away from the fact that people do want to use guns sometimes and there is a time and a place where a gun is actually logical in a scenario.

A main thing with the store and gas station robbery meta is that criminals will scope out where a majority of SD are positioned and base their robbery location off of that data which leads to free ~5-figure payouts on-top of misc rewards like Wrenches and Full Jerry Cans because SD are too far away to respond and catch them on-scene or spot them in the area to have RS. Sure we can always say that SD should be spreading their people out, we repeat it like a broken record, but ultimately it's a bad habit that's hard to break away from if someone isn't consistently monitoring it.
A system like this would add back that risk of something potentially going wrong, which atm is just the likelihood of SD showing up, since SD could be around the Silverton/Stoney and Elk Areas and someone who's observed this can go up to Northdale or Mexican Hill and rob the stores/gas station there and have a guaranteed getaway without getting caught because the response time would be ~2-3 minutes or more depending on the driver and vehicle.

Plus if someone constantly started bussing out Class 3s to do store/gas station robberies, all it would take is a competent LEO to be able to connect the cases and word their way towards a search warrant for their properties and maybe factories as well. (also they'll probably be made fun of for being sweaty and using a class 3 on a store robbery anyway lmao)
