“There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous [people]”

Occasionally I can title a post something about not bringing a knife to a gunfight. In this case it went the other way. Florida Man Fights Off 5 Shot-Gun Toting Robbers With Machete | NBC 10 Philadelphia

Surveillance video captured the moment when a Sarasota, Florida, homeowner fought off would-be robbers, one of which can be seen carrying a shot-gun, with a machete Thursday morning.

Police responded to a call at 4:45 a.m. about a man with a shotgun showing up at a home. The homeowner had disarmed the suspect and was holding him by the time police arrived.

Police have a total of five people in custody. They all face charges of armed robbery and the guy with the shotgun faces a weapons charge.

This story also highlights the “never give up” strategy for dealing with a dangerous situation.

Good Guys 5. Bad Guys 0.
