  1. A coward with a gun. Refreshing.

  2. Against almost all my beliefs, this makes me want to carry a gun.

  3. You carrying a gun here would have done nothing sadly. But in a city with such tough gun laws, it’s amazing how easy it’s become for robbers like this to use their guns to rob innocent people.

  4. And then the armed robber could have stolen a gun, too.

  5. So I guess the cops loitering and keeping each other busy shooting the breeze in front of Urban Outfitters aren’t really effective at all at deterring crime. Shocking.
