He's darn lucky all he heard was a click. It could have turned out quite differently. Kudos to him anyway.

This guy got lucky. It sounds like the dirtbag's gun malfunctioned.

I bet he carries the gun on him now instead of in the glove box.
Third time was charm for bad guy putting gun in face and pulling trigger. Rule of three....

Not having his weapon on him almost got him killed. Hopefully that lesson is clear to him, now.
Kudos for being able to survive the situation, though.
Wow, what a lucky guy...
Would love to know what was he thinking going to Wally World around midnight and not be armed to begin with?
As others stated, I doubt he won't be leaving his gun in the glove box OR his seat...
If he felt aware of a possible situation, he should have had the gun in his paw... not the seat... very lucky guy...
Hope he buys a lottery ticket...

The thug's gun probably did not malfunction. Many thugs have a similar mindset to some bloggers who do not carry a round in the chamber. There have been a few scenes I investigated where dead thugs had unchambred/unloaded handguns. Works for me, because the threat is still there.

Why is the suspect only being charged with attempted armed robbery?
How about attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon?..."I am fighting him off. I heard the click and it gave me time," said L.D.
L.D. said he thinks the man's gun jammed...
