Default Guy in Florida foils bank robber.

ON CBS right now that a guy stopped a bank robber at gun point. Seems to be getting good press.

ugh.. The early show doesn't have a dang link. Basically dude walks into bank and tries to rob the lady. GG pulls out a pistol, BG Craps his pants and surrenders, Cops show up, GG is a Hero.

First, I think he did a great thing. But...

If he had to go out to the parking lot to retrieve his gun from his vehicle, did he think about calling 911? I'm sure the bank has an alarm, but he could have given a description, etc. Now it worked out that he gave them the whole bad guy, but I would also want the cops to know who I was if I were going back in with the gun.

That's the second time he's had to go to a parking lot to get a gun. Maybe it's time to carry it on his person?
