    American with gun stops robbery

    Would-be robber with screwdriver foiled

    Fri Aug 18, 5:19 PM ET

    INDIANAPOLIS - A customer carrying a gun foiled a man who attempted to rob a fast-food restaurant with a screwdriver in his pocket, police said.

    William McMiller Jr., 40, was being held at the Marion County jail Friday on an $80,000 bond for an initial charge of robbery.

    He demanded money and threatened to shoot a cashier at the Kentucky Fried Chicken on the city's west side Thursday afternoon, according to Indianapolis police.

    McMiller ordered a bucket of chicken then told the cashier, "Give me the money before I shoot you," police said.

    He held his hand in his back pocket as if reaching for a gun, police said, then began to climb over the counter.

    Paul Sherlock, a customer sitting in the dining room, approached and pulled out his 9 mm handgun.

    He held McMiller at gunpoint until police arrived. Officers found a long screwdriver, but no gun, in McMiller's pocket.

    Sherlock had a valid gun permit, police said.

    Is that a screwdriver in your pocket or are you trying to rob me?

    The only way the story could have been any better is if the idiot had been pistol whipped before the cops got there . . .

    but wait . . . my understanding was that criminals are all armed all the time and you could never take a gun out in time to subdue one . . . world view crumbling.. . does not compute . . . love . . . is . . . kghzzzzrk

    Seriously, though, we need to see more positve, unspun stories about guns.

    It's my understanding that if you pull a gun on a criminal that they will disarm you and use your own gun against you.

    (You will of course be unable to disarm them as simply as they disarmed you)

    DUH!

    YOU can't disarm THEM because you're a RING fighter and the stuff YOU know is USELESS on teh st33t.

    THEY however, can disarm YOU because they're HARD.

    Sheeeesh. Sport fighters...
