During a February attempted robbery, a man got a quick lesson as to why you never rob a gun store or gun range.
On Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021, 27-year-old Marvin Payton Jr. decided it was going to be a good idea to attempt to rob The Range 702, a Las Vegas area gun range. Payton triggered a call to police after he entered the range and attempted to take someone else’s gun from their gun bag. Payton was forced from the store; however, he began brandishing a screwdriver in a threatening manner. Upon the arrival of police, Payton engaged in a physical altercation with police, stabbing female officer Misael Parra. Obviously, this caused an immediate response you can watch below:

Let this serve as a lesson on why private gun ownership is so important. Had Officer Parra been alone, she could have likely been the victim of additional injury or even death. Not only did the other officer, Andrew Nguyen, act to protect his partner by shooting the violent suspect, but four – count them, FOUR – armed staff members from the range were prepared, with three of them firing and shooting the suspect.
What likely saved these officers’ jobs is security camera footage, as both forgot to activate their body cams once they arrived on the scene. Luckily, The Range 702’s security cameras caught all the action in extremely graphic detail.
Assistant Clark County Sheriff, Brett Zimmerman, expressed his thanks that the quick-thinking gun owners were nearby and ready to respond to the threat:
“Their involvement actually helped our officer and could have saved our officer’s life.”
One thing is for sure: The lamestream media isn’t going to be showing this video anywhere. It counters the narrative of all cops being bad and of private gun owners only creating chaos when responding with their guns to threats. The good news is, we’re here to do it for them.
