A pair of thugs had no idea what was coming to them when they attempted to rob a nearly empty restaurant.
In a video posted to Facebook by FourGuysGuns on March 17, two would-be robbers entered the restaurant and began to push the one customer seen on-camera into a corner.
But according to Controversial Times, the robbers who struck the Subway restaurant in Sao Paulo, Brazil picked exactly the wrong time to commit their crime, because the customer in question turned out to be an off-duty policeman, and armed for action.
Note how the criminals took something out of the man’s hand — presumably either a wallet or cellphone.
They should have been paying attention to his hands before he handed the item over — he switched hands so that his right hand was free — you can probably guess why.
The “victim” quickly pulled out his concealed carry firearm and put a bullet in the gut of one assailant. He also apprehended the second attacker and although it must have been difficult, the guy sure made it looks easy.

The condition of the man who was shot was unclear, but LiveLeak reported that he died from the gunshot wound.
This is what happens when law-abiding citizens are responsibly armed.
Crimes like this would not be committed if people were afraid of citizens refusing to be victims. Although there was an off-duty police officer present to save the day this time, that’s not always the case.
When videos like this circulate, it’s incredibly difficult to make an argument that guns are the real problem. And even though this incident reportedly took place in Brazil more than a year ago, the lesson for Americans is clear as day, and as relevant as ever: Nothing stops a bad guy with a gun like a good guy — with a gun.
