    Good: Gutsy Gambler Stops Armed Robber

    Gutsy Gambler Stops Armed Robber - Video - FoxNews.com

    A couple of comments: where did the BG get a gun in England?

    And the guy playing the video game! What's up with him? Talk about Condition White!?!

    The guy took a big chance bringing a chair to a gun fight, but he sensed that the robber wasn't going to shoot.

    Definitely gutsy!

    Our gutsy gambler will probably get 10 years for assaulting the gunman with a chair.

    You know this would be hilarious if it wasn't sadly the truth. It's a sad system they've got going across the pond.

    Unhappy

    Ooooh, the poor, poor gunman ... and that bad, bad mean gambler .... what's this world coming to? I hope the gambler is arrested & convicted of assault, & the gunman reimbursed for all medical expenses, & all pain & suffering he may have experienced. This is sooooo tragic!!!!

    After all, this is the UK

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
