I’m aware that not all TTAG readers share my opinion on all things gun-related. Which is why Dan, myself and the rest of the team read our comments section: for a reality check. The feedback over on our Facebook page is even more, uh, critical. You might even call the commentators “groundlings,” but I couldn’t possibly comment. Except to say that when I FB’ed this video of an Oakland Park, Florida biz owner beating back armed robbers (click here for the story) with the caption “Too Much?” a mess of folks reckoned…nope. Not enough. Like this . . .
Del Martin Corbett Never too much when your life is on the line, I would have beat the color out of his eyes… Branden Montgomery not gunna lie…I would of gone executioner there at the end. Jamie Brecht Too bad the owner didn’t kill both of the scumbags Chris Fielding He shoulda kept bashing the guy’s face til there was nothing left to bash.
I understand the anger. And I can’t say what I’d do in the same situation (obvs). This much I do know: distance is your friend. The closer you get to your antagonist, the higher the odds he (or she) can mount a counter-attack. A bit of bashing and back away? That’ would-a done me. You?
