It's so sad that more and more innocent people are put into terrible situations like this.

NotMorganFreeman says:

That guy was moving like Elvis trying to get out of that door. Hahaha

Jushhh says:

how do these people pass the tests for ccw.

John….you don't need to have misc personalities on your program. You have gotten where you are without the presence of distracting co-hosts. They add nothing. While it seems that you are trying to diversify your program, this is a fumblingly unnecessarily deviation to your tried and true format. These individuals do not present themselves as credible. Image counts!

He couldn't afford the TTB Toe tag Bling.
Hide & seek instead. Give me some fin 🐋

metro pcs is becoming a no go zone for bad guys, they are up there with donut shops.

Xavier Strong says:

This channel offers good advice, but it's also patronizing — and reckless — with the way it caters to the armchair warriors who actually HOPE they walk into a robbery somewhere because they really, REALLY can't wait to shoot someone.

You know the type — the guys who high-five and make stupid jokes whenever somebody takes one to the head. What did John say? "… Don't play hide and seek — put a couple of bullets in him!" And all the fan boys go crazy with laughter and adoration over the Dirty Harry style quip.

AT LEAST three guys are already serving long prison sentences — and three other people are dead — in part because of the over-the-top gung-ho style and terminology ("force multiplier"? Give me a break) they use to present these clips.

Don't get me wrong — I don't have a problem with the advice. He probably should have fired his weapon sooner in this case. The message isn't the problem — the way it's being presented is.

Eric M says:

In Idaho (a gun state, where concealed carry with no restrictions) t-mobile, metro and Verizon always have no weapons on premises signs. They have asked for me to leave 😔, then I tell them call the cops, then they realize they have no right to tell me I cant…

David Ramirez says:

Amature hour. Good citizen was more scared than skilled. Bad guy stood his ground for a few seconds could have walked around the other side and shot the good scared and hiding citizen.

All Nighter Heider says:

"Tactical turtle" you got some zingers John, Though i think ive heard you use that one before.

Devin Gray says:

Perhaps some range time for this "defender" would be great.

Matthew Goulamanian says:

uhh in my state carrying a gun is illegal

Torey Weaver says:

"If you go to MetroPCS, carry your gun so you don't screw up our record" 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

odysseusnissan says:

Props to the guy for stopping the robbery, but he got lucky that the perp wasn't skilled and had that stupid hood over his head to make accurate shooting tougher. His kindness could've lead to his death. He was obviously ready because he drew first. So he should've shot him as soon as he reached for the gun. Or at least yelled for him to stop. But fuck that! He had bad intentions and deserved to be shot.

IMHO I'm guessing that the armed customer hesitated because his reflexes leaned toward caution and he wanted to access the situation more and couldn't believe it was actually happening. I'm sure he regrets not shooting the bad guy as soon as he went for the gun.

Cesar Santos says:

What about all bullets that the good guy sent out to the street? Lucky that he didn't kill some bystander…

scoobtoober29 says:

nice tables

Max Larson says:

How do you miss the bad guy when you have cover?

Jeff Tesch says:

How many shots did the “good guy”put out into the parking lot? While he may have stopped a robbery he’s lucky he didn’t hurt innocent bystanders. Love the work you do,and you have helped me with my awareness. Keep up the good work.

Cat5 Tracker says:

She's better than the other guy John has on.

D G says:

The guy in the background looks like he shat himself

kafoop says:

If there’s one thing I have learned from these videos, it’s that violence and speed of action wins the fight. This defender is very very lucky that the attacker did not decide to rush him when he ducked behind the cover, because if he had, he would’ve drilled the good guy into the ground before he even comprehend that the attacker was on him. Lucky for the defender, this guy was another attacker that turned tail and ran when the shots flew instead of taking the fight to him, because he would’ve been toast in that position he was with tunnel vision
