ROCKFORD, IL: Dont bring a pellet gun to gunfight
Rockford (Guns Save Life) - A 17-year-old aspiring armed robber and soon-to-be father Brandon Pierce of Rockford, IL was struck down in his prime while robbing a jewelry store in Rockford, according to police.
Police did not deny that Mr. Pierce tried announced the robbery while holding a handgun, and the owner of the store retrieved his own handgun and fired a number of shots at the robber and that the gun later turned out to be a pellet pistol.
Just a classic case of dont bring a pellet gun to an armed robbery.
Or better yet, dont be an armed robber.

...Don't bring a pellet gun to a gunfight.
Similar thing happened in Jacksonville, FL a couple of months ago. Two young thugs came into a Dollar General store packing airguns and demanding cash. Customer on his way home pulled .45, gave them a chance to drop their weapons, and then did a Madagascar tap on the one that didn’t.
It struck me at the time that once that particular bluff gets called, there is no conceivably good outcome to holding on to the airgun. Mexican standoffs don’t happen in the real world.
In one episode of “The Rockford Files”, Rockford and of course a pretty girl, were trapped inside a house by armed thugs.
The only gun Rockford could find was a pellet rifle which he used to hold them off. It was actually sort of interesting.
“He was just turning his life around, goin’ ta go to college, ...”
Went to the article and saw the pic.
DID NOT see that coming.
strange to say the least...
Rockford has some rough areas but this isn’t one of them. Probably the police are trying to put a happy face on this incident.
Did a what? Did you say Madagascar tap?
Brandon is not an Amish name. A sperm donor and armed robber at 17 — he chose poorly.
And the MSM says “Why oh why are there pellet guns?” /sarc
Mozambique, Mozambique, Madagascar is a cartoon...
Geez, early before coffee, I got most of the letters in there, and you knew what the hell I meant.
If I was doing government work, I'd get a promotion.
OK, I'm feeling a bit sheepish now, so I think I'll go figure out how to do a Madagascar tap. I'm thinking of shooting two pinguins center mass and then doing a head shot on the zebra.
Proves we white folks do a good job taking out our own trash.
Life is tough.
It is tougher when you are stupid.
Life is tough.
It is shorter when you are stupid!
——and this weeks’s Darwin Award goes to— the duffus dumbazz pellet gun packing robber.
