“Ooh-rah!” U. S. Marine Veteran With Carry Permit Drops Armed Robber

Two armed robbers attempted to hold up the wrong Gamestop video game store in Harris County, Texas:

It all happened shortly after noon on Wallisville Road near Beltway 8. According to investigators, the two men attempted to rob a Game Stop store when they were stopped by the 28-year-old U.S. Marine.

The Marine was eating at a restaurant next door when he saw two men pull up to the Game Stop wearing hoodies and bandanas. He yelled for someone to dial 911, and then he grabbed his concealed weapon out of his truck.

According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, that’s when one of the suspects pointed a gun at him.

One of the suspects was fatally shot. The second suspect got away but was found later and taken into custody.

Good thing he wasn't in Kalifornia or Nu York..or that Marine would be behind bars as a menace to society. Hope somebody gives him medal..but I am sure he has already one for small arms marksmanship.

Well it is good to see that a few less scumbags are out there. Shame he had to kill one of them, but if they pointed a gun at him they made their own choice.
