One brave restaurateur fought off an attempted robbery from a 19 year old with a gun. The restaurant owner, a woman named Wang, successfully grabbed what she thought to be a fake gun. She got it away from him, but again, and this bears repeating, she thought the gun was a fake. She found out the hard way that it wasn't in fact, a fake—but a real handgun that fires real bullets out of the barrel. More on this in a minute…
In the below video you can see her wrestle the firearm away from the criminal, and then you can see Wang's husband defend his wife with a meat cleaver. The giant knife gave the man gashes in his back which helped police identify him as the suspect.
I'm wondering, though, would she have wrestled the firearm away from the man if she knew that it was real? Most people would not have. Either way, she showed tremendous courage against a disparity in force that was equalized, once she was able to wrestle the gun away from his greedy paws.
Take a look at the video, and make sure you watch the whole thing, because the ending, when she finds out the gun is real, is pure gold:
Something keeps poking at me, oh yeah…It's called: Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you're ready to fire. Ya know, one of the safety rules. Also, treat every gun as if it were loaded—another one of the rules. At least she didn't seem to point it at anyone before she pulled the trigger.
If there is one takeaway from all of this, it's that a fake gun can be hard to spot. I seriously doubt that she'd go through all of that if she realized that the gun was real. Then again, I cannot be sure.
