BRAZIL — In the United States, it’s common for citizens to be armed while out and about. In the country of Brazil, however, citizens aren’t legally allowed to carry firearms with them. It’s also extremely difficult to even have a gun at your home.
My girlfriend is from Brazil, and we’ve talked extensively about the crime that takes place there. We’ve talked about the fact that citizens aren’t able to defend themselves against the rampant crime that takes place each day, and it’s something that many Brazilian citizens want. Being armed, that is.
In this particular case, the robber in the below videos had the worst luck possible in Brazil.
At the store he chose to rob, every single person inside at the time… was armed.
Sources tell us that the armed individuals inside were police officers — the only people allowed to carry firearms in the country. Very unlucky for this criminal.
Watch the video to see how it all played out.
In the second video below, we’re given a different angle of what went down. It is not completely known who fired the first shot, but it seems that it could have come from the man who first moved towards the back of the store for a little cover. See for yourself:
