Gun Grabbers’ Nightmare: Black Chicagoans Buying Guns to Protect Themselves and Their Families Ohio Woman Shoots Armed Boyfriend Who Tried to Force His Way Into Her Apartment 32 COMMENTS I think the bouncer might have played out that scenario in head once or twice. Reply Might not have been the first time he had to do that either. Reply True enough. It was great recognition and reaction on the bouncers part either way. Reply I think the lesson was also “be frigging huge” The bouncer sure reacted quickly, but damn if his size wasn’t a heck of an advantage… Reply Didn’t I see that big dude on “Hard Core Pawn” Reply all the gunman needed in his other hand was a bag of skittles……too soon? Reply Erm… that made no sense, brah. Reply Like a boss!!!! once his nerves calm down…he will be the head of the class for a while Reply found this after looking at the link.DGU playlist. interesting stuff https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFD1Nk15nMPFM5OxAnSc82wgRZ3ZLH4nl Reply Brave little girl. Now that she knows something about guns, she ought to trade the pink thing in on something with a bigger capacity than one! Reply Send this link to that prick in Chicago who doesn’t think that guns are used in self-defense. Reply Walks in like a [email protected]$$, retreats like a pansy. Don’t these thugs realize a gun is a ranged weapon and you should keep your target away from said weapon? I can’t see from the video but is the bouncer pointing the gunman’s own gun at him at the end? Reply Shhhhh… don’t give away the secrets of the gun. They expect everyone will just soil themselves and do whatever they say. Of course, that might not be far from the truth if the anti’s complete their indoctrination program…. Reply If i’m his boss, dude gets an immediate raise and a permanent position with my company for as long I’m in business. Reply And buy him some big boy pants with belt. Perhaps from 5.11 Reply Gunman’s last words were most definitely “what th…” That dude hit him like a bus. Reply I love the guy with the orange-brimmed hat standing around like nothing happened. I am next up at the pool table, right? My quarter is down. Reply Yeah and that little head nod he does at the end. Reply Impressive. Reply i don’t know why it was on their, but i originally saw this video on ifunny. Reply Well, it was funny: In the first seconds of the video a heavy chick who first saw the guy with the gun comes running in to hide, and yet her shirt says “SECURITY.” She needs a new shirt. It was also funny, of course, to see SuperFly coming in with his gun, just to get thrown around like a rag doll. Reply Notice the lady wearing the security shirt was leading the way out? Reply I noticed that too. She’s only concerned with her security not yours. Reply Da. Amn. That was crazy. Quick thinking. Hope that cheap thug took more than a little hurt away from that. Reply Large, aggressive man in a confined space. Ass whoopings will occur. Good job. Reply Seriously. That elbow to the face did not look comfy. Awesome. Reply Looks like someone has been practicing their krav maga! Reply Big guy can move! Buy this man a beer. Better yet, buy this man a bar. Reply Yeah, uh, I didnt watch the video…. Anyways, this is a neat story Reply This is also a lesson on how to fail at robbery. 1) Approach like a thug with a hoodie up over your head. 2) Keep your gun hand in your pocket like you’re concealing something. 3) only remove your hand at the last possible second and after you’ve been clearly observed doing steps one and two. 4) Make sure you are close enough to your target that you have zero time to draw and present before being completely owned by your intended victim. 5) Work alone and attack a business that is sure to have back up. FAIL. Reply Looks like thug got at least one shot off? Look how everyone ducks real quick right after big man attacks. Well done Mr. Bouncer and the ‘security’ lady needs to give her shirt back. Reply Two according to this article: http://www.twincities.com/crime/ci_25283267/police-chief-honors-civilians-courage Mr. Wasson was given an award for valor. Excellent.
