Courage triumphs again over evil. This should serve as an example to the GOP to not cave in to the vile intent of Barry Hussein.

We are still out here FIGHTING for our safety and whats right, while the weak-kneed GOP stands ready to throw us overboard. Typical! NO ONE stands up for us!!

It happens probably nightly. A citizen fights off a criminal in order to protect his property. But it doesn't always make the nightly news. In this case it did.

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
