Video: Excellent concealed-carrier stops an armed robbery

Ah, sweet justice — drink it in, it always goes down smooth. There are few things that warm my heart quite so much as watching a lawfully armed citizen give a good lesson to a couple of bad guys who seek to threaten, intimidate, and possibly cause fatal bodily harm to others while undermining the rule of law.

In an Internet cafe in Florida the other night, two armed robbers likely gained a newfound respect for the Second Amendment, the hard way:

“Based on what I have seen and what I know at this time, I don’t anticipate filing any charges,” said Bill Gladson of the State Attorney’s Office for 5th Judicial Circuit.

Gladson said he has reviewed the security surveillance video from the cafe. While he still awaits final reports from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, he said the shooting appeared justified.

Samuel Williams, 71, who fired the shots, has a concealed weapons permit, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Under Florida law, a person is allowed to use deadly force if he or she fears death or serious injury to themselves or others. …

…At least one of his 30 fellow patrons at the cafe wants to thank him.

“I think he is wonderful. If he wouldn’t have been there, there could have been some innocent people shot,” said Mary Beach.

Wow- whatta coincidence - the two perps in the video are wearing Trayvon commemorative hoodies! How could anyone be suspicious of that?

I think we should all chip in and buy Sam a .45.

Maybe some markmanship lessons, too. Then, again, he may not have wanted to hit them, considering what happened to George Zimmerman.

I wonder if Zimmerman's attorney's will [be allowed to] present this video in court?

If Obama had two sons, ....

Doesn’t the shooter look like his grandfather?

Looked like he used a Kahr CW9. But I could be wrong.
