Everyone loves a story where the bad guy loses. That’s exactly what happened when this robber tried to steal the hard-earned money of an elderly laundromat owner. Of course the crook didn’t expect the old man to be packing heat. Yeah, that turned out to be awfully embarrassing for him. The turd speck deserved it.
Camden police say the 80-year-old owner of a laundromat… was able to scare off a robber wearing a Halloween mask by firing his gun. The great-grandfather says he was sitting in his store Wednesday afternoon when the suspect entered the store. Police say the suspect, who was armed with a gun, demanded a cash box. The owner said the suspect could take the box, which he did, and ran out of the store.
Most stories would end there. But this grandpa was having none of it…
However, the owner picked up his .25 pistol, followed the suspect out of the store, and fired one round into the air. That startled the suspect, who dropped the box and ran into a nearby vehicle, which left the scene.
Here’s how we picture the grandpa with a .25 pistol:
A gun doth not a badass grandpa make. But it certainly helps. He sent this armed thief running with his tail tucked between his legs. And he didn’t even have to shoot anybody. Granted, it also helped that the robber was a dingleberry with testicles the size of shrunken peas. He did choose to rob a laundromat, after all. What was he after? Quarters? Dirty socks?
Can we just take a moment to bask in the glory that is the Second Amendment? It’s awesome. Old people get to defend themselves and their stuff (see 65-year-old Granny Shoots Mugger…), even if their stuff fluffs other people’s stuff. Now grandpa has a fighting chance should a criminal target him. Or try to throw a red pair of panties in with the whites.
Say, aren’t leftists big on equality? Guns levels the playing field for the physically disadvantaged, as seen here. Time to stop painting the Second Amendment as scary and unnecessary. These kinds of stories keep proving otherwise. Without his gun, this innocent old guy would be out lots of quarters… Or possibly even dead. So thanks, Second Amendment.
