Every honest American knows that a firearm is the best way to defend yourself in a dangerous situation. But if you don’t have access to one, you’ll have to make the best use of what you have.
This brave woman had nerves of steel, and brass cajones.
Let’s talk armed robbery – no matter what you might see on TV, the best way to stay alive is to remain calm and do as the burglar asks. It’s only when you have a clear shot and the advantage that a weapon works for you.
Of course, if it’s not just your life on the line, but others, you might fight back, even if you don’t have a weapon on you. And if you’re a Long Island thrift store manager, and the gunman is threatening your customers? Maybe just use his weapon.
You’ll just have to grab it from him and beat him with it, is all. No sweat.
A man attempting an armed robbery at a thrift shop in Centereach Saturday night got something he probably hadn’t bargained for.
Ronald J. Kelly walked into Island Thrift in Centereach, pointed a shotgun at the manager and five other employees, and demanded money.
The manager, whom police identified as a woman, “feared the situation was becoming dire and grabbed the gun.”
