It’s a great s…

It’s a great story: two armed men try to rob the customers in an Internet cafe, but a 71-year-old man with a concealed-carry permit opens fire on them, sending them falling over themselves as they flee. I don’t know how anybody who hears a story like this can continue to cling to any notion that legal handguns encourage crime.

However, I’d be interested in Ben’s assessment of the gunmanship of the customer. The security video is a joy to watch; you see one of the thugs threatening the customers, but as soon as he turns his back, the armed customer sees his chance and acts. But I must admit to a bit of unease when I see how close one of the other customers was to the line of fire as he pursued the criminals toward the door. But I have no training and no ability to judge, nor can I argue with the result.
