Graphic Video: Robbery Ends Very Badly for Armed Suspect

H/T to Tom Gresham of “Gun Talk” who retweeted this defensive gun use from 2019.

As you can see in the footage (warning: it’s graphic!), an armed suspect walks up to a counter where a clerk is working, draws a gun, and before he can complete the robbery, a good guy with a gun takes him out with multiple shots to the head and neck region.

Upon hearing the gunfire, the suspect’s accomplices immediately flee the scene.

What a very impressive display of courage and decisive action while under durress by the citizen responder. It’s safe to say that the suspect will not be re-offending any time soon — or ever again for that matter.

    ” And the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.” US Const. 2nd Amend.

    What part about the language of the supreme law of the land, don’t these “law makers” understand?
    There are no constitutional gun control laws, not one!
    All Able bodied Americans should be wearing a side arm, and have their AR close at hand. We have been subjected to an insurrection taking place at the southern border. And we’ve been duped by a coup of our seat of government. A clear message is sent, that an armed American patriot, is a very dangerous element.
    Stop relying on L. E. To save your day.

    L. E. Often times have no clue about the oath of office they swore when they took the job, therefore allowing their conduct to be discretionary, and rendering them useless and dangerous.
    If officer, cannot cite to the law, code, or statute that requires the oath, then they are no different than any other thug, that might be approaching your vehicle, armed, with an intent on attaching your income, for whatever reason that they interpret as law.
    Next time you get stopped, pose that very question before you give the officer anything he wants. If he cannot cite to the law… Call the sheriff to interview. Or?

    • Lee J July 26, 2022, 2:09 pm

      Typo. Should read, call Sherriff to “intervene”, not interview.

  • Colt Springfield June 23, 2022, 10:36 am

    There’s no link in the article I read. Can’t see the video.

    • S.H. Blannelberry June 23, 2022, 2:04 pm

      Damn, looks like Twitter pulled down the video. I’ll see if I can find it elsewhere.

  • Point n Shoot June 20, 2022, 9:46 am

    The term ” Arm chair quarterback” comes to mind when I read some of the comments. I don’t care where the video comes from. Don’t care what year. Don’t care if the “citizen” is police, ex-police, ex-military….IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER!
    What does matter is what’s SEEN in the video….a text book good shoot! “Shoot until the perp is subdued”. Maybe the first shot was good….. Personally, I might have emptied the magazine because he pissed me off that I HAD to shoot him for being a scumbag criminal lowlife!

  • William June 18, 2022, 12:31 pm

    South America circa 2019. Rare footage indeed. zzzzzz

  • CMC June 18, 2022, 11:10 am

    Hey, BOB! You are right! Criminals can’t buy a gun from a gun-store in N.Y! (Most NEVER COULD, because they fail the background check!) But they DO manage to STEAL guns! (Oh yeah! They ARE criminals, after all!) Guess what! You know who ELSE CAN’T BUY A GUN IN N.Y.? The VICTIMS!!!!

  • James Morrison June 18, 2022, 7:38 am

    Very calm and professional demeanor shown by man who engaged the criminal. I’m guessing it’s not the first LFE for him. Military or LEO or both?

  • R Hays June 18, 2022, 12:51 am

    Totally oblivious to his surroundings.

  • Dave June 17, 2022, 5:26 pm

    Well done. Draw was sloppy but calm enough to not draw the perp’s attention. Cool as a cucumber. Again, well done.

  • Dale June 17, 2022, 2:09 pm


  • Ken June 17, 2022, 1:56 pm

    I also carry a full sized duty pistol as my concealed carry. You have to have enough gun!

    Perping is getting more and more hazardous with today’s carry laws.

  • RD Scott June 17, 2022, 1:26 pm

    This was quite refreshing. The idiot robber, as most robbers/thugs are not Rhodes scholars, got exactly what he was threatening to do to the lady at the register.

    And for you whiny sissy boys that don’t like 3 shots, how many would you prefer? 5? 7? 9? The thing is that the thug didn’t get the opportunity to murder 3 people, which he was possibly going to do.

    • Ken June 17, 2022, 1:53 pm

      To answer your question… I would have preferred at least 6 shots.

    A nice cup of coffee, a video of some criminal scum would-be robber getting his brains blown out….. a great start to a new day. Now to decide on what to eat for breakfast.

      Brains and eggs with toast

  • Jack M June 17, 2022, 10:20 am

    The two accomplices split as soon as they saw the good guy start to draw

    • Bumper June 17, 2022, 12:54 pm

      The tag-alongs were wise enough to flee though sufficiently lowlife to take part in the victimization of hard-working producers. They’ll be back in Pt II and Pt III.

    You guys do realize this is in Brazil, not the US. It’s also an off-duty cop who put two in the perp.

    • Geronimo June 17, 2022, 9:55 am

      The country of origin is of no importance. The only thing that matters is that a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun, and reduced crime in the process.

    • John Boutwell June 17, 2022, 10:36 am

      And your point is?

    • Grumpy Old Biker June 17, 2022, 10:51 am

      Actually there were three shots fired into the “perp”. (Nobody says that.)

    • Grumpy Old Biker June 17, 2022, 10:57 am

      There were 3 shots, math genius. And nobody says “peep”. Quit watching so much TV.

  • Nick S June 17, 2022, 8:42 am

    Note how he almost shot the innocent bystander. Glad he didn’t pull the trigger again

    • DavidInCO June 17, 2022, 11:50 am

      Hmmmm. Maybe… maybe not. The angle of the video makes it impossible to tell exactly how close he was to the defender.

  • Bob June 17, 2022, 8:27 am

    If the whole country would make sure bad guys (and crazy people) couldn’t get guns there would be no need for good guys to waste ammo on them in the first place.

    • Big Al 45 June 17, 2022, 10:51 am

      We’ll get on that, right after we “make sure” no one drives drunk, no one beats their spouse, and no one ever commits another crime.
      “make sure” ?!?
      What a naive statement, as though in a ‘FREE’ Country we can CONTROL all actions of everyone.

    • Grumpy Old Biker June 17, 2022, 10:59 am

      And if a frog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass a-hoppin’. Quit wasting time dreaming about a perfect world, lady. This is not it.

    • Paul Hathcox June 17, 2022, 11:17 am

      What would you add to the law that doesn’t already exist right now?

      Theft is already illegal. That’s how many bad guys get their guns. FBI background checks during legal gun purchases from gun stores and gun show vendors will flag anyone with a felony or a legal record of abuse (that is if all of the proper information has been provided to the database in the first place). If the buyer fails the background check it stops the sale in it’s tracks.

    • Stan d. Upnow June 17, 2022, 11:30 am

    • Jerry June 17, 2022, 12:17 pm

      Crime has been around since cain-vs-abel, and not even draco, of draconian-law fame, was able to cure it. “Speak softly and carry a big stick” (T. R.) And howabout “Love all, trust few, do harm to none”. (shakespeare). Or, even, “it is the duty of every gentleman to go about armed” (jefferson). Vigilance is eternal, but failing that, so is death.

  • Bob June 17, 2022, 8:25 am

    If the whole country had common sense gun laws (not gun control) like we have in New York, the bad guy with the gun probably wouldn’t have a gun in the first place. I will tell you this, that POS didn’t buy his gun in any gun shop in NY.

    • Hondo June 17, 2022, 9:58 am

      Wow, you’re as dumb as box of rocks, congratulations.

      • David Opyrchal June 17, 2022, 8:06 pm

        yep Bob ain’t to bright

    • Fred S. June 17, 2022, 10:00 am

      Your comment is idiotic. You don’t get it like most libtards. You think because of New York’s crazy gun laws criminals can’t get guns? Of course he didn’t buy it at a gun shop in New York or any state for that matter. Im sure he’s a career criminal and every state has strict FBI background checks against sales to Felons. Been that way forever! Doesn’t stop them though now does it? Net York and Chicago have strictest gun rules and some of highest murder rates and gun violence. There is no way to ensure a crazy person or criminal can’t obtain a gun. Just like there is no way to prevent a heroin addict from buying heroin easily on the black market. Because it’s illegal doesn’t stop anyone from getting it. Use your brain!

    • John Boutwell June 17, 2022, 10:38 am

      Not a real thinker huh, Bob.

    • Grumpy Old Biker June 17, 2022, 10:56 am

      If you think NY has common sense gun laws and that they work, you are part of the problem because your “solution” won’t work. We already have a sh!t-ton of gun laws — more than we need — we just don’t prosecute them properly. And the media gets the crazies all whipped into a frenzy, causing them to want to be immortalized by doing something stupid and evil.

    • Big Al 45 June 17, 2022, 11:15 am

      I have common sense, enough to know that what the folks like you are proposing is just plain foolish.
      It WON’T stop crime, it won’t stop theft of guns, or guns coming across the border, which is where they will come from when the Black market demand is high, and the borders are wide open.
      And few criminals buy guns from shops, they get their G.F.’s to buy them one (and we fail to prosecute for that crime) or they buy stolen ones.
      In Chicago for example, over half the gun violence is perpetuated by KNOWN criminals out on Parole, or having just served their sentence, often for the second and even third time!!!
      Soft on crime is the problem.

    • Stan d. Upnow June 17, 2022, 11:39 am

      Wait one ——- (cough, choke, whew!)——- I had to stop laughing at this imbecile’s asinine hypocrisy.

      He says “common sense gun laws(not gun control),” as if there’s a difference. SMH
      He says the perp didn’t buy his gun in any gun shop in NY. DUH!! Like there are no illegally-obtained guns in the hands of criminals in NY!

      Bob is too stupid to be in the same room with a firearm, let alone own one.

    • Willie-O June 17, 2022, 11:59 am

      So your opinion is that NY doesn’t have “gun-control”, they’re merely “common sense gun laws” ? That statement is indicative of how far apart the L and the R are in this country. I live in Tn and if you can legally buy/own it, you can legally carry it. Exactly how it should be. The now deceased thug didn’t buy his at a licensed retailer – he bought it off the street from another pos or he stole it. Same way it works in NY and Tn or anywhere else. THEY ARE CRIMINALS. As a general rule, criminals do not obey laws, which is why gun laws only affect law abiding citizens, but not criminals. I simply don’t understand why liberals have such a hard time grasping this reality.

    • AK June 17, 2022, 1:16 pm

      Bobby-boy, you are the epitome of “Derp”. Don’t speak on things that you don’t have any knowledge of or you show yourself to be an ignorant fool.
      Do better, BE better.


    • Danger June 17, 2022, 3:38 pm

      Are you serious? Criminals DO NOT CARE about laws in the first place! Why do you think New York has some of the highest gun violence in the country? Because criminals don’t care about the laws! The ONLY people that are affected by gun laws are the law abiding citizens! So the criminals are able to run around freely killing the law abiding citizens and robbing them. Have you been living under a rock, or are you just that stupid? This is the problem with the left right now, is that they’re either dumb as a rock, or just that corrupt. The ONLY reason that they usually fight gun ownership is only right after a shooting, when it suits their political agenda. The left’s mantra… never let a crisis go to waste. The ONLY people laws affect are the law abiding citizens that protect themselves and others from the criminals that DON’T follow nor care about laws! Part of the reason also is the left can forcibly stay in power if no legal citizen can own guns to be able to fight back against a tyrannical government. Geez dude, you really need to educate yourself, and grow some common sense.

  • Jim Cicconi June 17, 2022, 7:21 am

    Great video….and it wasn’t graphic at all. They should all end just like that….

  • Smitty June 17, 2022, 7:05 am

    Wow, that must have been .22 cal because a 9mm would have blown the bad guy’s head clean off! Right Joey???

  • DAVID F BARNES June 17, 2022, 7:01 am

    Biden was wrong- that 9mm didn’t blow his lungs out.

    • Kane June 17, 2022, 2:43 pm

      I wonder what Joe’s shotgun would have done? Oh yeah, all he would have to do is rack it and the guy would have taken off running. That was guaranteed by the fake POTUS.

  • Eric Johnson June 17, 2022, 5:14 am

    All this news about gun control all week then several stories about guns saving lives all the sudden. Media wants it both ways– still not going to make a dent in black on black crime- that’s a ppl problem not a gun problem

    • Grumpy Old Biker June 17, 2022, 11:03 am

      The so-called media never reports on the “good guy with gun saves the day” stories. They only report on the shootings that might lead to more gun control and superfluous laws (we already have plenty). And by giving the crazed shooters recognition and a platform for their issues, they give more crazies the idea to go shoot up a public place. It sells ads and creates revenue, and it furthers the libtard agenda.

    • Jerry June 17, 2022, 12:33 pm

      Some time back, both bill cosby and tony brown were both roundly, soundly and heavily criticised, (blasted, even) for saying black fathers need to stay at home, to properly raise the next generations. Our leftist-dominated media and corporate anti-capitalist turncoats (i made my trunk-o-loot, but you cant) are all behind bho (and soros) and his desire to fundamenally restrutcher amurka as we know it. Stay awake, america!
