The sad part is that store policies often discourage resistance as much as the government does.

/and even a clerk knows that only encourages more attacks.
/crime happens where it's easiest to get away with it.

And you call THIS a convenience store?!

Yep.

If you publicized stuff like this more, and didn't punish the employees by firing them, there would be fewer attacks on places like convenience stores because they wouldn't be seen as "easy targets".

You would probably transfer some of the crime to non-confrontational property crimes like unoccupied burglary and car thefts, but that's a net positive because there is less chance of innocent people being hurt.

Yep.

Big difference between corporate owned chains and stores like this where the clerk is possibly the owner's nephew.  My other thought, who thinks using a 4' sword in a tight space will actually end well.  If that guy stayed and fought, he most likely would've won.  That clerk had no room to swing that thing, he'll be taking out the cigs while the perp takes out his lung.  Sure this guy needs a gun, but I bet he'll be stupid and gets a Springfield model 1861 with the long bayonet.  That's not a gun, this is a gun.  Now stop laughing and wait till I get this thing loaded.  Okay, please back up so I can point this in your face and make you scared.

Watch the video.  It's not katana-sized, more like a wakizashi.  Blade looks to be a bit over a foot long at most, certainly less than 2 feet.

Besides which, if the guy *DID* have a katana, assuming it is sharp, that's still not all that much of a disadvantage in an area like that.  Sure, he's not going to be swinging it, but he can still stab, he has a major reach advantage, and the other guy won't be able to grab the blade without risking serious injury

I did, however in that tight of a space anything bigger than a Kabar is not ideal.  I stand by my statement.

Yes, if you try to use it with slashing attacks.  Stabbing attacks would be fine.

In the end, though, it's plainly clear that just having the bigger knife and the apparent will to engage in a fight with it won the day, as it would probably 90% of the time.

Is that pepper spray in your pocket, or are you just happy to spray it all over my face?

I'm going to look for this guy's contact info. If I find it, I'm sending him $50 to help him buy a gun.
If I lived near this guy I'd give him one of my Makarovs.

The guy is working a tough job, and is showing criminals that law abiding citizens are willing to fight back.

It's a shame he didn't kill the guy, then impale his head on a spike outside the store. I'd like to see more of that for armed robberies.

I'm happy to see dude defend himself, but I couldn't help but cringe when he slipped on the mat behind the counter as he was pulling out the sword. Massad Ayoob would be so ashamed...

Yeah but then they may come after me. Let's just leave it the way it is.
