The proprietor of a Bargain Booze store in Manchester, U.K. had the intestinal fortitude to throw a barrage of beer cans at the robbers who looted his till at gunpoint. Clearly, it should have been a DGU . . .
From Sky News:
Police say two men stormed a Bargain Booze store in Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester, and threatened staff.
Footage shows the shopkeeper being struck on the head by a man apparently armed with a handgun, as another raids the cash register.
The victim is seen defending himself by throwing items from the counter at one of the attackers. Both robbers flee the scene in the direction of Ramsbottom town centre.
Police said one of the men is believed to be aged in his 20s, around 6ft tall, with a slim build.
He was wearing a white “V for Vendetta” mask, a black tracksuit and light blue jeans.
The other man has been described as slim, and dressed in a dark grey Adidas hooded top and black trainers.
“But wait,” you must be asking. “How can a British robber be armed with a handgun, when handguns aren’t allowed in Britain?” That’s a very good question, and it’s a pity that the British government has been unable to provide an answer it for the last 30 years.
Until the God-given right of self-defense is restored to the British people, they’ll have to resort to desperate and dangerous self-defense measures like can-tossing. And then hope they don’t get prosecuted for it.
