Robber clearly didn’t know how guns work.
A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, pizza place was the scene of what may have been the dumbest attempted robbery in history last Tuesday night.
According to Fox Carolina, an employee of the store asked a man if he needed help, at which point the man pulled out an unspecified type of gun magazine. The would-be robber then allegedly pointed it at the employee and told him to hand over everything he had.
The employee responded to the odd threat by simply slapping the magazine out of the robber’s hand.
Myrtle Beach Police said two rounds fell out of the magazine, but the suspected robber picked them up and walked out of the restaurant.
No word on if police eventually captured the suspect. Someone needs to explain to this dumb criminal a magazine by itself isn’t going to intimidate anyone. We hear a lot of dumb criminal stories here at Wide Open Spaces, but this one ranks right up there near first place!
