robbers pick wrong guy
Video here. I can't believe the first armed robber got only five years, until I realized this was California.
Wow, he got prison time without actually shooting someone? We need judges like that in New Mexico!

Lance Thomas. His shop is a frequent target of thugs, but he's well-prepared. You can read more about him here:

Wow, if the defensive shootings were not so well documented I would think this was a work of fiction. The guys runs his shop quietly for years then all of a sudden becomes the target of robbers over and over within months?
I'm glad he was able to survive. Too bad the gang will never stop looking for him.
Oh, I like his taste in pistols. Sigs rock!

This is an old story. IIRC - it came out in the early 1990s as part of the debate over the Brady Bill.
