Two armed men robbed a Fresno, California, gun store Thursday morning, making off with 13 handguns, reports ABC Action News.
Security footage released by police shows the two crooks running into Fresno Firearms and catching a patron and the owner of off guard minutes after the store opened.
“They then took out some kind of bag or pillow case type object and removed a number of firearms from the business,” said Fresno Police Lt. Jon Papaleo.
Upon exiting the store, they pushed an 85-year-old man to the ground, injuring him. Police say the victim is in critical but stable condition.
“Several witnesses on scene said they believe the individuals were seen leaving the area in a late model white Cadillac,” Lt. Papaleo said. “It was seen going on to Blackstone and drive away southbound Blackstone.”
It goes without saying but hopefully police catch these two scumbags. On another note, this video should serve as evidence to those who believe that universal background checks will keep criminals from obtaining firearms.
