Pepper spray versus shotgun and guess who wins? A would-be thief walked into a New York sporting goods store and asked to see a gun. When the store owner asked to see his gun permit, the thief pulled a canister of pepper spray and sprayed the store owner. Undaunted by the pepper spray, the owner grabbed a load shotgun and fired at that thief who had smashed the glass display case in his attempt to steal some guns.

The New York Post reports 06-28-2017 in New York, New York, a customer walked into DF Brothers Sports Center on New Utrecht Ave. in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn and asked to see some of the guns just before 11 a.m.

When the shopkeeper, identified by friends as a 60-year-old former US Marine, asked to see his gun permit, the suspect pulled out a pepper spray canister and quickly sprayed the owner in the face.

The customer, now robber, then used a hammer to smash a display case and tried to steal some of the guns inside. The robber was forced to retreat when the merchant came up shooting with a shotgun…

New York City has pretty strict gun control laws and this thief had no intention of following them, as most criminals don’t. If the store owner didn’t have the loaded shotgun handy, there is no telling how many guns the thief would have gotten away with or what he might have done had he actually gotten a hold of any of them.
