Joe Galiano owns Suburban Armory, a gun shop in Philadelphia.

Yesterday (Thursday) two teenage boys dressed in female Muslim garments non-chalantly walked into Suburban Armory and pulled a gun on Joe.

Rather than comply with their demands, he took one of his own guns and fired a single shot. It was enough to scare the boys into running out the door while disrobing 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.

Score one for the good guys practicing self-protection under second amendment rights.
