    I stand corrected and I appreciate it. I firmly believe in gun rights. I should not underestimate the ability of stupid people to be stupid; and the guy pulling the gun obviously was. It struck me as unreal that someone would pull a gun and then lower it so easily and lean toward the threat. Not being privy to the audio, I say “hurray” to that vet for whatever he was saying during the time it took him to pull his weapon for the guy to know he had made a grave mistake. I guess the vet was smart to have a waistband hoslter rather than having to reach under the counter. I live a sheltered life. And [Ed], I thank you for your service.

    “3) It appears the vet pulls his gun from his back waistband (again, really?)” There are several videos of this event in youtube not poorly filmed from a monitor. Those show that the pistol was drawn from an outside waistband holster (OWH) — very common holster.
    “I am sure I am not the only one to believe that this is staged (good premise, though).”
    Again @ youtube, there are many vids of store clerks/owners, even private residents, defending themselves by use of their firearms. So, it’s not just a “premise,” but an every day reality. A very recent, comprehensive study by Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz found that there were somewhere between 830,000 and 2.45 million DEFENSIVE gun uses PER YEAR in the United States.

    I just wish I had seen the perp’s head blown off by the store worker’s gun. There’s no need for modern Society to put up with crimes like that. Not at all.

    I grew up watching cowboys in white garb and black garb and the good guy in white always won.

    1) The “security camera” is moving, as though it is hand-held. – The security camera is not moving, this video was filmed off a monitor, obviously by an amateur, hence the movement.

    2) The robber pulls out the gun and when the vet reaches for it he lowers it and leans forward (really?) – As you can tell, the vet did the right thing by blocking the “robbers” right arm so as to not let him raise the weapon.

    3) It appears the vet pulls his gun from his back waistband (again, really?) – How can you tell? from the footage I see you cannot see the vets waistband? are you seeing something I am not?

    4) The vet lets the guy just walk out and he appears to return to business; no “drop the weapon, and face down on the floor you dirtbag.” – Despite what you may believe, not all scenarios such as this are a “Criminal Minds” moments. The vet had a choice …. a.) put a bullet in his head or b.) let him walk and call the cops. As you can plainly see he chose option b, having stared him in the face I am sure the police got a real good description and apprehended him shortly after.

    As a gun owner and vet myself, one learns prudence and responsibility when handling a fire arm in situations such as shown, this is not the wild west or some version of some exaggerated police show where you may be getting your ideas from.

    Whoaaa!! Sorry, dude, my bad! I didn’t realize that you were one of those crazies who believes in exercising his constitutional rights. I’m outta here… pretty sure I saw a “guns are bad” sign in the door of the quick stop on the next block.
