There are a lot ways that a robbery can go wrong, and one thief in Brazil encountered just about all of them at once. A surveillance video of the incident puts the date at May 31.
The would-be thief walked into the store and pulled out a gun. However, in moments, he was on the floor with every other customer in the store pointing a gun at him.
We don’t have many details about the situation right now, but Brazil is a nation with fairly relaxed gun laws in comparison to the rest of the developed world. According to NPR, between 8,000 and 9,000 Brazilians die each year from gun homicides.
In order to legally own a gun in the South American nation, you cannot have a criminal record and have to pass a mental health test.
