    I live in Ocala and we were just discussing it today down at the gun shop.
    I've seen the surveillance video and it's hilarious! The 2 thugs run for the door at the same time and end up doing a "Laurel & Hardy" (when 2 guys try to fit thru 1 doorway and get wedged between) before falling over one another.
    A Marion Co. Sheriff happened to walk into the gun shop not 5 mins. after I did and that's how I heard about it. According to him, the old man fired at the thugs and one of them took a slug in the ass.
    I would of loved to have been in the ER waiting room at Shands when they walked in and said "I got a bullet in my ass!"

    This happened just a few miles from my neighborhood - one article seems to be written more from the view of the robbers

    from the mouth of one of the "disadvantaged youths":
    Then maybe he shouldn't have been trying to rob the place with a gun? Too bad the old gent wasn't a better shot

    It's great that more & more people are arming themselves, but you must have the proper training....
    I went back and studied the video again and noticed that when the old man fired his 1st. shot there was an innocent standing directly behind the BG he was shooting at.
    This thing could've gone wrong in a really bad way....

    Isn't he likely to get nailed for shooting a perp who was running away?

    I didn't see him drop the gun. Thus, still a threat.
    It's all good in my book.

    They say internet cafe, but those places are casinoes, for those who don't know. They have the electonic slots, We have then in Vero and all over Florida. My buddy must go every other night, but he a l;ucky SOB, he also hi the lotto in MASS.I googled it to make sure he wasn't shining me on. He really wins a lot. He hit foxwoods for 130,000 also in one year.
    Those places are full of cash, Most say no firearms , but latelly I don't see the signs. They most all have an armed gaurd with a wheel gun.

    It ain't the size of the dog (gun) in the fight, It's the size of the fight in the dog!
    Did you see how fast the bad man with the evil handgun turned little girl? This should happen on the news every night!

    It turns out the gun wasn't even loaded!
    These stupid teens went in to rob with a gun that wouldn't even fire.
    Together now.... "Ya' can't fix stupid."
