    Those boys got lucky the robber wasn't willing to fire on them. No other reason why someone wasn't shot.

    So many things that did go wrong there and everyone is lucky that things didn't get worse. It looks like at first the guys were trying to control the gun, but then they simply turned their attention to fighting the BG. He had plenty of opportunity to open fire and hurt/kill some of them. If you are going to fight a guy with a gun, you need to control the gun, not the guy.
    Has anyone tried turning the country off and then back on again?

    It would hardly be the first time some super-intelligent criminals tried to rob someone with a fake pistol. I've seen Airsoft pistols with the orange muzzle piece cut off, and real pistols that were unloaded - the criminal thought such would insulate him from aggravated robbery charges!

    In one case I heard of a guy who raised one of the Airsoft fakes and almost got killed except for marginal marksmanship.

    Lots of good luck there for the intended victims; someone was watching over them. Unwise response.

    So who is this Will that everybody fires at, what did he do, and how come he's not dead yet??

    And no one thought to use the pump nozzle to douse either thug.

    Here's a little more info.

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-sp...ry?id=61968799

    Says the victims were brothers and cousins of each other...never says whether the gun was real or loaded - but the guy who got control of the gun said he didn't want to shoot the robbers because they were somebody's sons / brothers etc...

    They need to “unfriend” the guy in the red plaid shirt - he stood by and did absolutely nothing, even when he saw the second bad guy run up on his “friends”. Think I would’ve left him in Florida, to walk back to Indiana!

    I tell you what I see.. I see a whole lot of grown men who have NO IDEA how they should respond, how to work together and have nearly NO WILLINGNESS ( half hearted at best) to use force. Every single individual on this video ( including the badguys) are complete goof balls. I am amazed that someone was not shot.

    I tell you what though.. that guy in the red shirt standing around frozen and just watching when the second badguy shows up would not be someone I would be hanging out with.

    When the badguy runs right up into the middle of them, they should have made short work of him. Given that no shots were being fired, they should have been able to handle the robber and his compatriot very easily.

    I am not a tuff guy by any stretch of the imagination but I was mortified by the bumbling actions of the numerous victims.

    Wow! 3 of them get an "A" for effort! The 4th victim needs to be sentenced to some MMA courses and a bootcamp to find his manhood.

    You gotta love the quote from the one kid, he pointed a gun at my stomach, and i went in to fight mode! Then after rasslin the gun away, he couldn't shoot them because they were someones sons. In a way its nice to see some All American righteous optimism, but dang, those kids were lucky.

    I didnt see details in an article, but it had to be a real loaded gun, or the thugs wouldnt have backed off when the kid pointed it at them.

    The tide seems to be turning in America, people fed up with BS political correctness and are starting to fight back. Good to see!

    The article said they are related. The kid standing there is definitely the beta male. Makes me wonder was the gun real, was it loaded, did anybody know how to use the gun? The BG's didn't act that worried when it was pointed at them. All four guys were out of the car, how many guys does it take to pump gas?

    Probably punishment enough for thugs to have this video get back to the 'hood.
