Here’s another method of gun control: Beat the hell out of the guy trying to shoot you with one.

So much for “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” huh, you dumb wingnuts?

NBC Chicago:

A Logan Square shop owner who’d been robbed in the past grabbed a baseball bat and fought back when a pair of men came in intent on robbing the place…

The robbers, one of them with a gun, apparently had no idea what they were in for when they walked into the shop.

“One of the guys, he said, ‘Give me the money or you are dead,’ and after that I was close to him and I tried to hit him with the bat, and the other guy he started shooting,” said Luis Aucaquizhpi.

Aucaquizhpi’s brother-in-law, 62-year-old Luis Quizphe, fended off the gunman with a baseball bat for a moment before the shooter tried to run away. Little did the robber know, however, that customers need to be buzzed in and out of the store. Seeing that they couldn’t get out, one of the attackers returned to the counter and continued shooting…

Quizphe was shot in the leg during the ordeal and was listed in good condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital on Wednesday evening. The man with the gun appears to also have shot his accomplice. Police said they found 10 shell casings on the floor.

It’s a good thing that clerk isn’t legally allowed to carry a gun in Chicago, or somebody might’ve really gotten hurt.

(Hat tip: Burge again. He’s gotta live in that place…)
