Restaurant Owner Quickly Takes Control of The Robber’s Gun

I think she did pretty good compare to most average people who get attacked based on a collection of surveillance feeds.

What are your thoughts?

Here is news article with the video instead of linking to a BLOG posting:

and another:

My thoughts are that the robber was pretty terrible and needs to look in to a new line of work. The store owner got lucky and could just as easily have lost that round. Having her husband back her up with the meat cleaver likely was what actually ended the fight.

That reminds me of a stooge episode.moron pucks a fight, slapping and punching, points gun in air, "look, it's not even loaded," fires gun, faints, roll credits...

It ended without anyone dead and bad guy in custody. Bare minimum for what you can call success, and success was a matter of sheer dumb luck.

Really great video! Thank god the perp wasn't very committed, and that once she had the gun in hand, she REALLY hung on and in fact took possession. Hubbie sure sealed the deal with the meat cleaver. Thanks for posting!

I hope she learns her lesson to get some training and start carrying. She's given a second chance.

Now if she had trained in Krav Maga, the gun grab would have gone much more successfully (and quicker.) And if she had taken classes in gun handling she would not have had a AD/ND with the gun after the robber and ran off.

Oh, well. Hindsight is 20/20. She still stood her ground and let him have it!

Hope she joins a Krav class and gets some gun handling skills to!
