Go watch the video at this link. Will warm your heart: http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/cowboy ... waving-gun
Surveillance video captures a young man waving a gun, trying to hold up this store in Monterrey, Mexico. A store customer wearing a cowboy hat springs into action, knocking the gun from robber's hand. A store employee picking up the gun and helping to apprehend the robber, ending the scary scene.

I also loved it when the second employee grabbed the guy by the throat before he could get out the door. :smilelol5:

Cowboy carefully put his glasses away and never lost his hat. :woohoo

...and the employee was wearing blue gloves (PPC). Having used them myself they give you a nice non-slipping, eye popping grip. :shock:

Too bad its Mexico and they have crap gun laws or the old man in the cowboy hat could have just drawn and shot him when he turned around. Because of Mexico's crap laws, he doesn't have a distance weapon and has to try and tackle the guy. He almost gets stabbed several times.

Fortunately robbery does not seem to accompany intelligence in this instance. Not sure how he didn't stab him, but glad he didn't.

If that knife were to... "slip" off camera, I doubt there would be many repercussions.
