    What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

    I definately agree that media reporting of intances such as these is sadly lacking. Just another example of their anti-gun agenda.
    One reason you may not have heard of this story concernig the old Marine is that it is not a recent story. This occurred in South Florida at least 4-6 months ago.

    As a professional piper I play lots of funerals: Former Marines attend, they screw the lid down on Ex-marines......there is a big difference.

    Semper Fi, 'ya done good, dude!! Carry on.

    Two against one 70 year old ex marine isn't a fair fight. They need to add one more bad guy. Good show. I'll bet the clerk was glad to see the GG show up.

    Note: He is a retired Marine. EX-Marines are kicked out and no longer associated... like a EX-Wife...., those that didn't retire but are in good standing are referred to as Marines or "former" Marines....

    Anyhow! Here it is...

    PLANTATION, Fla. -- A retired United States Marine disrupted a robbery in progress when he shot two men who attempted to rob a Subway sandwich shop, fatally wounding one of them, police said.

    According to Plantation police, two armed men barged into the Subway at 1949 Pine Island Road shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday, demanding money from the employee behind the counter. When they tried to force John Lovell into the bathroom, he pulled out a gun and shot both men, police said.

    Donicio Arrindell, 22, was shot in the head and later died at the hospital. Fredrick Gadson, 21, was shot in the chest and ran from the Subway, but police found him in hiding in some bushes on the property of a nearby BankAtlantic.

    Lovell, 71, was the lone customer at the time. Police said he had a concealed weapons permit.

    A witness who was about to enter the Subway at the time said he thought the shootings were justified.

    "I think justice, you know, was served and a civilian was a hero for today," Sebastian Shakespeare said.

    While just cleaning up his Subway
    Two guys entered and spoiled his day.
    They forced him to the back room
    Making him sense his own doom
    He shot both, then things went his way.
