AQ hijackers take note. The next one of you who stands up on a plane and tries something is going to come back to earth very, very dead.

Looking at the video, these people are lucky they weren't dealing with a hard case. Very lame and non-violent response.

First, gun v. nothing I'm giving up my phone. It's just a phone that I can brick as soon as I find the internet. If you have to fight, you control the gun but be violent about it. A guy wrestled to the ground and controlled who won't release the gun needs to leave that bus on a stretcher.

The guy who grabbed the gun did a pretty good job of it.

No criminal history SINCE TURNING 18! I’ll bet if you were to look at his juvenile record, you would find all kinds of crap.

Yeah he is damn lucky he didn’t get shot because he put himself right in front of the gun, maybe it wasn’t loaded or real or the guy didn’t have it in him to pull it, whatever reason, but that is definitely the wrong way to go about it. There was an exact case like that 2 years ago here in New York city where a gunman barged into a gas station cashiers booth and pointed the gun at the cashiers face and exactly like this guy the cashier instinctively pushed the gun away then tried to grab it and wrestle the guy and BOOM the cashier was shot and died at the scene. Same kind of video, they show the gunman pointing it right at him. It’s the wrong way to react but again it’s an instinctive reaction.

Obviously this racist lynch mod didn’t realize that Ashtrey was entitled to rob them. He was tired of waiting for the government to do it for him.

I would comply while looking for an opening - and then slit the thug’s throat with my very sharp (and completely legal) tactical folding knife. That is, if i wasn’t carrying my 9mm at the time.

PS This not just Internet bravado. Been mugged twice. Or rather, been the victim of attempted muggings twice. They both has to be somewhere else real fast when I pulled out my blade instead of my cash.

PPS Only try such if you have seriously trained with a blade...

It seems to me the guy who grabbed the gun pushed it back into the attackers belly. If the robber pulled the trigger he would have most likely shot himself.

Action beats reaction.

A good sharp blade would have help out. I can think of many things one could carry if you live in one of those no weapons allowed areas.

That's right. Control the weapon at all times. It's look like the guy was surprised and instinctively pushed the pistol away. He is damn lucky nobody got shot in that scrum. The last thing you want to do is get into a gun involved wrestling match.

The best handgun disarm is to grab the barrel and twist the gun back against their fingers until the trigger guard breaks the index finger. Pull the gun away with both hands and then give them the Mozambique drill.

Not a ninja. Lol. Just spent a lot of time fencing then learning Thai knife fighting. And some basic long sword work. Good exercise. Swing 5 lbs of 3 1/2 foot metal around in proper form for an hour and you will definitely feel it!

( i do prefer a gun for self defense, but don’t always have one. Almost always have my trusty knife, though. Obvious exceptions apply.)

Wasn't Seattle the town where (after the retired 80+ year old veteran was murdered by a "Son of Barrack") ...


the "bastard" Police Chief said that it was the retired veteran's fault ...


because he had the "audacity" to fight back, for his life ?
