Common sense is apparently hard for some criminals. Take for example, 22-year-old Derrick Mosley, who reportedly attempted to rob an Oregon gun shop on Thursday armed with a baseball bat.
According to various news reports, Mosley strolled into Discount Gun Sales in Beaverton, Ore., with his baseball bat and criminal intent. He reportedly smashed a display case and attempted to steal a firearm.
The manager of the gun shop drew his own firearm which, unlike the one Mosley attempted to steal, was loaded. The manager trained his gun on Mosley and ordered him to drop the bat, the unloaded gun he was trying to steal and the 9-inch knife he was carrying. The first smart thing the crook did that day was comply with those commands.
