WATCH: 80-Year-Old Store Owner Defends His Property During Armed Robbery
I’m just going to say it like it is…criminals are dumb. Some are dumber than others and many learn the hard way that crime doesn’t pay.
You would think that people would learn that they’re probably not going to get away with being a criminal. Sure, they might get away with it a time or two, but eventually they’re going to get caught and pay the price, sometimes the ultimate price.
One thug almost paid the ultimate price for an attempted armed robbery in California after walking into a convenience store with a rifle.
The owner of the store had been watching and saw the men who were entering his store were armed, so he made sure that he was ready and grabbed his shotgun as they entered.
Sadly, the owner was so traumatized over the experience that he suffered from a heart attack, but it is being said that we will fully recover.
But take a look at the video below. Once the store owner opens fire, they all hightail it out of there in a stolen car and you hear one of the men saying that “he shot my arm off!”
It was reported at the suspects all went to the hospital and three of them were arrested while the other who got shot in the arm is still being treated though he will be arrested as well.

In interviews with people who are from the area, they all expressed admiration for the store owner. Even though they are in a liberal state, they support this store owner being able to defend himself. This is at the core of why we need to have the ability to defend ourselves. Law abiding citizens do not have any intentions on harming people with their firearms. They only want to protect themselves, their family, and their property.
