Mindset

Orlando, Florida-- A Central Florida man who collects cash for parking at a church fought off five armed men who had ambushed him and demanded cash. The 65 year old victim, who did not want to be identified, said he was collecting cash in the Parramore area before an Orlando Magic basketball game when someone put a gun to his head. He noticed that that he was surrounded by four other men as well.

The man said he pretended to reach into his jacket for cash but instead pulled out his hidden gun and opened fire. The men fled during the shooting and it was not known if any of them were hit by bullets.

The victim said he had a permit for the concealed weapon.

He said he has been a victim of crime before.

"A couple of years ago, eight teens attacked me with a pipe trying to rob me," the man said.

Some have professed that a gun on your hip is useless when a criminal puts a gun to your head. Having a gun is only part of the equation.

I'd swear lots of folks are defeatists with regard to self defense. Instead of planning for the worst, they fear the worst without contemplating winning. They plan to loose in certain scenarios, and that's just baffling.

This gentleman did not go into this sure that he would loose if someone else had the drop on him. Bravo good sir.

What was irresponsible about what he did? It's a 50/50 crap shoot whether such cretins will shoot you just for the hell of it these days. Those Who Know Better tell everyone, "Just comply and you're less likely to get hurt." It's a crock. It's about a 50/50 crap shoot these days, as to whether the animals will shoot you even after you comply. Goons fear resistance. Any resistance. Like all bullies, they expect an easy mark, and when they don't get it, they scurry like cockroaches.
