    Jon Lewis Alexander is an Iraq veteran who served four tours of duty in his 30 years in the military. Video surveillance from a convenience store in Marionville, Missouri shows a thief entering and hesitatingly pulling a gun on Alexander. But the 54 year old war vet didn’t go through hell and come out clean on the other side just to take a bullet from some low-life thug. The grizzled vet whips out his Walther PPX 9mm handgun and shoves it right in the would-be thief’s mouth.

    The News-Leader.com reports:

    Alexander said the man walked in smoking a cigarette, which he was promptly told to put out. The thief then reached for his gun and demanded “all the (expletive deleted) money.” The veteran reacted quickly, throwing down the thief’s arm. Alexander [sic] then drew his own weapon and, according to the report, threatened to “blow his (expletive deleted) head off.”

    Should have squeezed the trigger - would have saved tax payers a lot of money keeping the scum in jail, and no waste of rations.

    I think he did the right thing by holding his fire.

    Since he was able to stop the robber, his job was done. The video in the hands of the police will finish the job.

    Had the ass-hat brought his weapon to bear, then the clerk would be completely justified in turning that idiot's head into a canoe...

    Apparently that shove of the gun into the perps mouth (really cool touch) was not very gentle. The cops nailed the clown at the hospital emergency room where he went for help
