Two Thugs Walk Into a Gun Store…


From TPNN:


Bottom right corner is the back of our 74-year-old who stopped the robbery.

Those who understand the value of the Second Amendment understand that a “good guy with a gun” is the key to curbing gun violence. Crazed murderers target so-called “gun-free zones” as the inhabitants of such areas are often easy targets.

However, a recent duo of robbers decided to do the opposite and rob a place with tons of guns- their local gun store. Predictably, it didn’t end up well for the robbers who were bested by a 74 year-old woman who pulled her piece in response to the threat.

On December 6th, two men walked into a gun store in Springdale, Arkansas, and tried to rob it. According to KSFM News,

“Two men walked into the store, one wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and the other wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt, police said.

‘They split up, they both pulled out hand guns that looked like black semi-automatic pistols and began to rob the store,’ according to Lt. Derek Hudson with the Springdale Police Department. 74-year-old Shirley Cornett, however, pulled her concealed .38 revolver and shot one of the robbers.

Police found Marcus Gould, 25, at a local hospital getting treated for his gunshot wound. The second robber, 20-year-old Leon Robinson, returned to the hospital to check on his accomplice and after a short chase, was captured by police.

Police obtained a warrant to search their vehicle and found the two weapons used in the attempted robbery as well as several other items that demonstrated their guilt. The two were promptly arrested.

Normally, in situations where the “good guy (or gal) with a gun” emerges victorious, it serves as a shining example of how concealed carry laws save lives.

However, in this case, these robbers went to the one place where firearms were sure to be to commit their nefarious crime. Had these two morons ever ventured into a gun store before, they would likely have known that gun store owners and the inhabitants of such stores are some of the most-likely to be packing heat.


Brainiacs these guys aren’t – high on something, perhaps. To rob a gun store has got to be scraping the bottom of the barrel in the smarts department, and then to be foiled by a 74-year-old woman has got to be the height of embarrassment.

Click on the link at the top or the KSFM link to view the uncooperative video and let me know what you think about the neighboring businessman’s statement on guns. This moron could have just painted a target on his place, except that most 2-bit motels don’t have much money.

No guys, it’s not the DRT you wanted from these thugs, but when you consider that bullets were flying, this woman is lucky to have winged one of them, and most especially to be alive.

      These guys need one of those awards – Darwin award, I think it is, for stupidity.

      • vonMesser says:

        Darwin Award is for “removing self from gene pool”. Dead usually covers it, but one case of a woman killing her only child before he had a chance to reproduce, and several cases of castration have also won.

        • Kathy says:

          Ohhh, ok, so not the Darwin for these two then. There’s bound to be some kind of appropriate award, such as the Bonehead Award that’s fitting.

    Go Granny Go !
    And as for the motel owner, Mr. ‘Turn The Other Cheek’ Gandhi ….Granny has a family and a business to protect too. Next time she should just tell them that there is an unarmed motel owner next door that loves to contribute to the needy. Then escort the thugs over there at gunpoint and introduce them.

    This was funny. Crooks aren’t known for their smarts.

    This story reminds of when I was at a gun store years ago. A scrungy looking dude came in and was milling about. All the patrons noticed him. He was out of place. With prying eyes on him the dude went to the used shotgun section and proceeded to load a short barreled shotgun with ammo from his pocket. Before he could finish loading he had a dozen pistols aimed him by the patrons. Common sense kicked in and he put the shotgun down. Shortly thereafter the police came and hauled him away.

    Good find, and good for Granny. A DRT would have cheered me up, but this works. As for Dot-Forehead, he’s got NOTHING to worry about. the STENCH of curry would drive damn near ANY robbers away.

    Unbelievably stupid! Gun store clerk ALWAYS wear their products. And I particularly love that the person who shot was 74 and female. Strong lady, I think!

    The injured perp will probably have to go straight now – how can any self-respecting robber show his face in the hood when he was thwarted in a robbery attempt by a 74 year-old granny?

    How much should we bet that Marcus and Leon were raised by baby-mamas (or baby-grandmas) on the tax-payer dime? The baby-daddies were off to make new baby-hoodlums five minutes after conception.

    I love these stories of robberies gone bad where the perp or perps get shot or hurt. The fact that one was shot by a 74-year old lady is icing on the cake.
