This would-be thief learned a valuable lesson: the gun is always mightier than the sword.
We figured everyone knew never to bring a knife to a gun fight? In the case of this would-be thief, we're guessing he didn't get the memo. And, after watching this video, you'll see why.
It looks like an ordinary day at the grocery store. That is, until the lanky guy on the left realizes that the cash register--sitting mere inches away--holds a quick and "easy" lottery win for the taking. Unfortunately for him, the shopper behind doesn't take too kindly to those that steal.
Watch how the robbery unfolds:
Chalk one up to the merits of concealed carry. As you saw, the threat of being shot quickly halted and resolved this robbery attempt.
We're guessing this thief will be rethinking his choice of weapon next time he decides to rob a store.
Now, about the setup of those grocery checkout lanes. Hmm.
