Bringing a Bat to Rob a Gun Shop … Would Be Robber Derrick Mosley Foiled by Gun Shop Owner with a … Gun
How many times must we say, don’t ever bring a knife to a gun fight, or in this case … a baseball bat to rob a gun shop.
Once again we are witness why we have a Second Amendment right to bear arms. So stand your ground is a bad thing, eh? So what exactly is the issue with self-defense and defending your property? As reported at KATU, 22 year old Derrick Mosley attempted to rob a gun shop in Beaverton, Oregon on Thursday armed with a baseball bat. As the not so bright robber smashed the glass display case with a bat, the owner of the store pulled out his own handy-dandy peace maker and pointed it square at the would be robber. Wow, what are the odds that the owner of a gun shop would have his own gun? Say it isn’t so! To add insult to injury to the not so bright robber, the gun wielding owner held the robber at gun point until the police arrived. Mosley was charges of first degree robbery, first degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second degree criminal mischief
Sheriff’s deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.
But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.
When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found Mosley on the floor being held at gunpoint by the manager.
EXIT QUESTION I: If the owner had shot and killed the would be thief with the baseball bat, would Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama been railing against this store owner as well?
EXIT QUESTION II: So how would this store owner have been able to defend himself or his property of Obama and Democrats get their way with gun control?
