That gun store owner has fantasized about that scenario for most of his life. He should send the fellow a thank you card.

I thought that civilians were never able to successfully defend themselves with use of a firearm. Additionally, I have been assured that using a firearm against an attacker armed only with a melee weapon creates a disparity of force that, if not unlawful, at least identifies the defender as a "pussy" for not putting forth a fair, even fight.

This defendant, Mr Mosely was black. The racist white store owner obviously hates the long cultural traditions of the ghetto. Mr. Mosely didn't want to kill the store owner, he just wanted to engage in a little "whoop ass" in the spirit of multicultural enrichment.

There was no need for this racist, pussy white owner to pull a gun. Fark him and his racism, he should be the one in jail.

Did he want a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range?
 
2013-07-27 10:10:49 PM  
Well duh.

If the defendant had a gun, he would have had no need to rob a gun store!

The solution to gun store crimes is to give everyone a gun.

Also, herp de derp.

Eh, way too obviously a troll attempt.  Come on man, you can do better than that.

Store owner should have stood his ground and shot the perp. Now, the good people of Oregon have to pay for the criminal's incarceration.

Very sad.

Yabut who pays to clean up after? Brainspatter on the walls, you don't want to touch that cos he might have had AIDS or Hep, and the blood soaks into the carpet and will never get out so now you need a new carpet too.

It's smart to maneuver the crook onto the street and THEN shoot him, but the cops might give you a hard time for that.
 
2013-07-27 10:19:55 PM  
The level of success I would expect would be one dead robber.

Blood and gore remediation should be a deductible business expense, if not an out right insurance claim.

/Indeed, he let poor Darwin down, esp after all the work he did getting the dumbass in there in the first place.

No blowing his head off?

Fail.

Nothing of value would have been lost.
 
2013-07-27 11:02:30 PM  
I'm guessing this was a suicide by gun shop owner attempt.

AverageAmericanGuy: Should have used a knife. Within 20 feet, a knife is deadlier than a gun.


He did have a  9in knife as well.  He used the baseball bat to break open the case to grab an unloaded weapon and was busy doing that while the store owner armed himself.  The only scenario where that kind of loadout may work is taking a customer, or store owner hostage before attempting to gather up the goods. Even then the probability of success is rather low and you often would eat a bullet for your troubles.  Darwin just missed on this one.

He broke the glass display case and picked up a pistol. The dumb ass thought they were loaded.
 
2013-07-27 11:23:42 PM  
They guy wasn't even shot.  I'd say that was a very successful event given the circumstances.
 
2013-07-27 11:26:11 PM  
Nice the dipshiat was off the street before he got good at crime.

The robber didn't sit on him and beat his head into the floor.

It doesn't matter who pays to clean it up, it matters that someone is getting paid to clean it up. You obviously hate American jobs.

If Obama had a son he'd look just like him. In fact this could have been Obama back in his druggy days. I sho' 'nuff hope Obama makes some statement on this tragic miscarriage of justice.

The store owner didn't need to stand his ground since Mr. Mosley is obviously not quite as stupid as Mr. Martin.

That sounds like a beautiful interpretation of the thought processes of those who continue to support Martin, good job!

He should not have been arrested, because it shouldn't be a crime to try to rob a place with a bat.
This is because criminals don't follow the law.

He had every legal opportunity to shoot the bastard... so sad.

Well, we know Martin was justified in beating Zimmerman because Zimmerman "reached for something, possibly a weapon". So Justice for Trayvon means this cracker walks.

I keep hearing martials arts guys claim this, but when I offer to put it to the test with my Sig P226 vs the knife of their choice, they are strangely reluctant...

The actual claim is that under 21 feet a person with a knife at the ready can close the distance and still stab you by the time you draw and fire, even if you hit. Without a DRT shot, the person with a knife who is committed to an attack has a high likelihood of getting to you.

Also, you should just go ahead and tag AAG right now. He's a (quite often hilarious) troll.

It's really hard to hit a moving target with a pistol in a fatal type of way, even at close range. With a knife it is easier to aim.
