Is this where we argue about proper use of the Hero tag? After all, self-defense sure doesn't deserve it

But damn - looking down the barrel of a shotgun less than an inch from your face and having the balls to just snatch it out of your assailant's hands?  Honorary, IMHO.

That video was far more badass than I was expecting.  He grabbed that damn shotgun like a BOSS.

That said, doing things like that usually get you killed.

And thank you kind sir, for perpetuating the stereotype.

I'm surprised he was able to grab the gun without his enormous clanking brass balls getting in the way.

Can also be instinctive.

My now-ex-husband and I endured an armed home invasion robbery. He said that when he answered the door, he thought it was just so stupid for someone to actually shove a gun in his face that he just grabbed it. Fortunately, the robber was also surprised, and no one got shot during the ensuing wrestling match (which led my ex and me to believe that it probably wasn't loaded). A friend of mine tells a similar story about when her ex-husband pulled a gun on her. You just kind of react.

As far as owning a gun, I know that in the above scenario someone in the house would have gotten killed if we'd had a gun in the home. The biggest problem I have is in not knowing who would get killed; in that case, it's just far safer for everyone if I don't own one. However, once I get some serious training under my belt, I'll have no problem keeping a gun.

It's not really hard.  Just point and shoot.

Damn nice disarm, moved the barrel up and away from his face then pulled it past his body before completing the removal.  This guy either knows what he's doing or has astounding beginners luck.

That's not what I'm worried about.

Knowing that I'll hit what I'm aiming at, the ability to diffuse the situation so one isn't necessary in the first, troubleshooting what to do when shiat goes wrong, being able to properly handle, clean, and maintain the gun so I know that it works when I need it, instead of jamming because it got so dusty sitting in the drawer. . .

/it's not the knowns or known unknowns, but the unknown unknowns I'm worried about

///just like voting, it's a right, but we are entrusted to employ those rights responsibly

Good disarm. But, if slappy the armed robber had know what he was doing, it wouldn't have been possible. It would have been better to give him your wallet; unless you knew he was going to kill you.

/ it was a good disarm though

Yep.  One of the top rules of holding a gun on someone is that you don't hold the gun where they can grab it.  Unless you're clean out of rounds and have nothing left but the bayonet.

Indeed.

You never ever ever EVER get within arm's reach when you are holding a gun on someone. And, anybody within 20 feet is a threat; no matter how it looks.

[Hedonism-bot Voice]  Yes, these incessant failed crime videos must stop.  I simply can't enjoy my hatred of society, my disdain for all things ordered, my love for a well muscled police-bot, when these criminals simply won't cooperate and submit to handcuffs and chains.  It's tiresome and banal.

This.

I don't know why (crime caught on camera I guess) but this reminded me of a story on Reddit, then on fark a few months back  about a Redditor/farker who had been asking for information about a murder of a friend of his. In the video was a white guy in his 20's waiting to get buzzed into an apartment complex. A black guy around the same tries to steal the package the victim had under his arm. They briefly tussle for the package until they are out of view. Apparently the victim had been shot and killed seconds later.

I don't remember the city, just that it was in the USA. Never heard if they found the suspect
