As he vigorously waved the gun, the weapon fell to the floor and broke into several pieces.
According to the FBI, the robber kept yelling at everyone to stay down as he picked the pieces off the ground and put the gun back together again.
Once recomposed, police said that the robber jumped over the teller counter and ordered employees to give him money. The employees complied, opened their drawers and stepped back as the robber took the money, including a dye-pack, and placed it into his bag.

Oh my.. I don't want to get involved
He (BG) might get mad if I was to try and stop him. OH my... I'll just burry my head in the sand, and all will be well with the world.
We have to accept the fact that the world is full of and it just goes to show ya, we have to take responsibility for our own safety

Glad everyone's ok, but I think I might have if I was being robbed and the bg's gun fell apart...then I'd compose myself and rightly kick his .

I don't care who you are, the BG gun falls apart you are now on a level playing field, especially since he is now outnumbered and alone!

Reminds me of one of those apocryphal stories circulating on the net... BG walks into a bank and yells, "Freeze, motherstickers! This is a f**K up!!!" Everyone including the armed guard burst out laughing... the BG is so embarrassed he runs out of the bank!

After the gun fell apart, threat is immediately gone. No longer about self-defense but about giving a retarded would-be robber an appropriate backside kicking for doing what he attempted

I'm pretty sure in my town at least one person would've been carrying.
I would've kept shooting until he stopped moving. At least I hope that's how I would react. I guess you never know until you're there.
