Teens in Muslim burkas try to rob Delco gun shop (Delaware County, PA)
Philadelphia Daily News ^ | 01/02/2014 | William Bender

Posted on 01/02/2014 5:43:23 PM PST by Kid Shelleen

Most teenagers do dumb things. But not trying-to-rob-Joe-Galiano dumb.

Who is Joe Galiano? He's the owner of Suburban Armory, the gun shop on MacDade Boulevard in Collingdale Borough, Delaware County. He is surrounded by guns, including the one on his hip. Like his .45-caliber pistol. Can't miss it.

Despite this fact, police say two teenagers dressed in burkas walked into his store this afternoon, pulled a gun on Galiano and tried to stick him up. Galiano, less than thrilled about having a man in female Muslim garb pointing a silver handgun at him inside his own store, decided not to comply, but instead to make use of his own gun.

You just can’t fix stupid. Even if they live to be 100, these two morons will die fools.

The robbers identities being protected due to juvenile status, I’m willing they could have been 0dung0 thirty years ago.

I’m betting they got the burkas from their mothers or sisters.

I think the Shop Owner knew what he was dealing with and purposely missed to scare the Yoots.

If he felt like he was defending his Life, the Magazine of his Pistol would have been emptied.

He saved lives. Hopefully the owners of the lives he saved will realize how close they were to Death and will change their ways, after Prison of course.

I’m not the only one around here that foresaw criminals using these things to hide their identities, once we started accepting them as acceptable dress in our society.

Range time and adrenalin time are two different things.

Was friends with the owner of Abington Gun Store in Montgo. county Pa.

He could knock the sox off a flea at 100 yards. Good shot, very proficient.

He was NO wuzz. He was opening the store at 9:30 AM and got jumped by three street monkeys with hand cannons blasting in all directions.

After it was all said and done, he did manage to get off a few shots, but he was so rattled by adrenaline that it was really just shots in the wild.

Fortunately, he was not injured because the street monkeys were high as kites.

One monkey jumped over the neighbor's fence, (bar owner) [72 years old] who took a shot and hit him. He layed down and cried for "help." (bullet scraped his leg)

A wild day in Abington, Pa. All three were rounded up. Store owner, (a REALLY GOOD SHOT) sold the store to a friend two months later. The whole ordeal changed his mission in life.

Bottom line, you NEVER know what will happen. You train, train, train. The UNEXPECTED happens, and it changes your whole outlook.

Well, sometimes you just can’t fix STUPID. Remember, these were Delaware kids.

What kind of kids, besides very stupid and very lucky, we don’t know now, but drug users comes to mind.

Wonder if Boy Biden will have them prosecuted properly?

Not that it makes these utes any smarter but it's Delaware county in PA.
Collingdale Borough is a suburb of Philadelphia.

The poser is simply paraphrasing how black mothers respond when their sons or family members get killed or arrested.

Not all black women talk like this, of course. But in the inner-cities, there's always this talk of how a "good boy" he was and he would never "hurt anyone" and that "this was all a mistake."

Last month, a gang of thugs shot and killed the husband in New Jersey mall. If you read the news coverage of it, all you saw was what a sweet boy he was and that they were surprised this happened. It's just the mentality, sadly.

If proper defensive shooting courses are not available IPSC would be helpful (and it is a lot of fun!)

This business of not identifying the crooks because they are jouvinals has got to end. Identify them for everyone to see.

Does any know the reason for not identifying a criminal under the age of 18?

Even worse. I view Delaware and New Jersey as the backsides of Pennsylvania (lived in Philly for 4 years). A few miles doesn’t make much of a difference when referring to crime in that general area (Camden, Trenton, Chester, etc).

Fired only one shot? He didn’t miss. Very risky though.

Seems to be a discretionary thing. Last week, there were a few Wisconsin teens on a crime spree from there to New Mexico, and they ID'd them on the news sites. The fifteen-year-old girl's picture was front and center in the article.

The best shooting I every read about was a local pawn shop owner about 20 years ago. The armed “yoots” came in to rob him and a customer. The store owner grabbed his 5-shot S&W J-frame and started shooting. ALL 5 shots hit the targets (three in one, two in the other). One perp ended up dead and one was paralyzed from the waist down. He is now in jail. The police had the shop video and the owner fired the shots double action in just 3 or 3 seconds. He was not charged with anything. Unfortunately, he decided to close down about 6-months after that.
