Caught on video: armed robbers flee in terror from 65-year-old gun-toting woman

In a recently released surveillance video (see below) from a robbery in Garden Grove, California, we witness an incredible scene: five armed robbers tripping over each other in a frantic attempt to exit Continental Jewelry after the female 65-year-old owner came after them with her firearm.
With a great deal of controversy surrounding gun control in the United States and with the failed (for now) United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (which the Obama administration laughably claims will not endanger our rights as protected by the Second Amendment), I see this as even more evidence that our right to bear arms is absolutely critical.
This incident began when a white Ford SUV pulled up to the front of the store and parked in a handicapped space. Five men wearing hooded sweaters charge into the store, pointing their guns at one customer and the clerks.
The armed thugs ordered everyone in the store to get on the ground, then began opening up their pillowcases and demanding cash.
Little did they know, the 65-year-old owner was in the back of the store when she heard what was going on, quickly rushing into the store’s main room.
The incident lasted only around a minute as the men quickly panicked after the owner charged into the main room firing her gun twice.
The armed robbers were clearly frightened, evidenced by their hilarious sprint towards the door during which they are repeatedly crashing in to and falling over each other.
One surveillance camera even captures one of the robbers falling into a display case, then onto his face as he makes his way to the door.
The brave shop owner does not give up there. She goes on to chase the men out of the store, gun in hand, as they scramble to get in their getaway car parked out front.
The driver of the getaway vehicle was clearly just as scared as the rest as the car sped away with three of the robbers still waiting to get in.
According to the British Daily Mail, the three armed thieves who were left behind by the others were picked up someone a block-and-a-half away.
While clearly respecting the owner and her bravery, Lieutenant Jeff Nightengale of the Garden Grove Police Department did state that they are hesitant to recommend similar action to others.
“She felt that these suspects where possibly going to injury the employees or the customer, so she fired two rounds from her handgun towards the suspects, which caused them to flee the store,” said Nightengale to a local ABC affiliate.
“Obviously, we are leery of recommending that storeowners take immediate action. It’s all going to have to be based on the circumstances at hand,” Nightengale added.
Amazingly, not a single person was wounded during the hectic robbery and police are still searching for the five men responsible for the crime.
I think that this should be taken as yet another piece of evidence showing that despite the nonsensical claims made by the likes of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the founders of the United States of America actually did know what they were doing.
