A shocking clip is going viral after a thug ran into a Houston café and attempted to rob the place. Too bad for him, things would go horribly wrong – and that’s about the time that he learned the reason why you don’t mess with Texas.
The day started like any other for the owner of Bambu Desserts and Drinks in Harris County, Texas. However, after coming in for his shift, he noticed that something wasn’t quite right as three thugs walked in with their hoods up, Breitbart reports.
Unfortunately, his suspicions were validated when one of the men approached him rather quickly, brandished a gun, and demanded the contents of the establishment’s safe. However, this business owner had other things in mind, despite having a gun aimed at him.
“I thought I was going to die. He told me he was gonna shoot me,” the owner told News Fix. “The gun could’ve went off, and it would have shot into my stomach. And that’s a .357, so I would have been dead.”
As it turns out, surveillance cameras were rolling and captured what happened next on video – and it’s a good thing they did. With the footage now going viral, viewers look on as the thug learned the reason you just don’t mess with Texas.
Without hesitation, the owner of the café decided that he wasn’t going to comply with the demands being made and, instead, went on the offensive. After a brief and violent wrestling match for the gun, IJ Review reports that the owner was able to physically take the gun away from his aggressor.
As if the moment wasn’t desperate enough for both parties, things became even direr as the thief realized that he had lost possession of his only advantage. Trying to dish out a few more blows in a desperate attempt to get the gun back, it wasn’t long before the thug took off running for his life – but things were far from over.
Not wanting the threat to ever come back, the owner opened fire on the punk with his own gun. However, no one was shot as the owner started firing the gun.
Too bad for the robbers, though, things only got worse from there as they quickly learned that police just so happened to be in the immediate area at the time. Within mere moments of leaving the café, two of the suspects were apprehended with a third suspect jumping a fence before being taken into custody by a police officer who had deployed a Taser.
As for the owner, he states that he’s extremely lucky, but that’s not the only thing that had an effect on the situation. Come to find out, these thugs were about as dumb as a box of rocks. “The guy’s an idiot,” the owner added. “He even told the cop, he was like, when the cop grabbed the gun from the counter and he brought it into the car, he said the suspect said, ‘Can I have my gun back?’”
There’s no shortage of stupidity out there, but you have to be a special kind of stupid to try to rob someone in Texas. With numbers indicating that nearly one out of every 2 or 3 people in Texas own a firearm, it doesn’t take a genius to see why a gun doesn’t really provide an advantage, and most Texans aren’t going to crumble in fear at the site of a firearm.
This idiot was able to have his own weapon taken away so quickly by a man without a gun of his own. This guy is lucky he walked away without any serious injuries, although it wasn’t for lack of trying. If you don’t want to deal with the possibility of leaving in a body bag, don’t try to take what isn’t yours and what you didn’t earn. If you want something, go out there and work for it like the rest of us.
