FL Senior Citizen Thwarts Robbery With .380 Semi-Auto

FL Senior Citizen Thwarts Robbery With .380 Semi-Auto

For any naysayer that's still on the fence about concealed carry'¦have them check out this amazing surveillance video from the Palms Internet Cafe in Marion County, Florida.

The video shows two men, one armed with a handgun and the other with a bat, entering the cafe demanding valuables from the patrons. One of the thugs even smashes a computer screen with a bat to emphasize their intentions.

That's when 71-year-old Samuel Williams, who was there with his wife, had seen enough. The video clearly shows Williams rising from his seat, drawing a .380 semi-auto, and opening fire on the robbers who were completely caught off guard.

Both would-be robbers fled the scene, but were later found at a near-by hospital, suffering from gunshot wounds.

Police report Williams will not be charged with anything, while both of the robbers are looking at hard time, though that might be preferred than another moment with Samuel Williams and his .380 semi-auto.
