Yesterday (Thursday) two teenage boys dressed in female Muslim garments non-chalantly walked into Suburban Armory. Once in, they pulled out a gun directed at Joe.

Rather than comply with their demands, Joe surprised them quickly by taking one of his own guns to fire off a single shot. It was enough to scare the boys into running out the door, disrobing along the way and then finding places to hide.

They (Sean Wooden, 17, and Isaiah Nelson, 15) were soon found by the police and charged with armed robbery and drug possession.

Police conducted investigation to show that Joe Galiano was licensed to carry a firearm.

Simple and sweet. Another save by the good guy practicing self-protection under second amendment rights.
