Video footage taken from a Florida Wal-Mart shows a shopper literally jumping the gun.

The surveillance footage, released by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, shows Michael Foster, 43, tackling Clarence Daniels from behind as he was walking into a Brandon, Fla. Wal-Mart on Tuesday.

Foster followed Daniels into the store after seeing him exiting his vehicle with a gun holstered under his shirt — which was perfectly legal for the 62-year-old Daniels to do since he holds a concealed weapon license.

Nevertheless, Foster tackled Daniels from behind as he entered the store, and put him in a chokehold before taking him to the ground.

Witnesses said that Foster yelled out that Daniels had a gun. They also said that Daniels yelled out that he had a license for it.

Foster called 911 only after he tackled accosted Daniels.

He was arrested and charged with battery.
