This man probably has seen many things over the years – some good, some bad… And without having means to defend himself we would have read about him in the obituary section.

Awesome job! He also looks like Barnaby Jones! Seriously!

roger warnike August 4, 2022 - 2:05 PM

Mr. Cope is a prime example of what’s wrong today. 2A saved this man. He had the courage to defend himself. 👍👍

We need help in California. We need to vote out the Democrats who encourage criminals

Harmon k August 4, 2022 - 2:08 PM

Thank you for showing us the way. This old geezer is a national treasure.

Ruben Schaefer August 4, 2022 - 2:09 PM

Story aside….. look at the beautiful head of hair on this gentlemen….

This is 15 minutes from my house I think I’ll go buy something just to help with the cost of ammo. LoL 😂

Bden's America, what a colossal disaster.

This man is a legend, and with more intelligence and coherency at his age than the one running the US.

Companies are going to have to have door lock systems now in the day light, and close at a certain time.

Lock and Load

THE SOCIALIST/DEMS WONT DO IT! They want to take our guns away and make us SOCIALIST! I am an old man(68) and am DA** PROUD of him. Made my day!

This is so simple the politicians let the criminals run loose you bag them to do something about it they tell you to give up some of your rights and they' will protect you it's the oldest trick in the book if you fall for it you get what you deserve

Annasty Beach August 4, 2022 - 2:19 PM

Yet the lefties would want this guy to have NO gun and just get shot and robbed none stop.

Suzanne The Patriot August 4, 2022 - 2:20 PM

Are the criminals in jail…or were they given a house, a car, and an expense account.

Kai August 4, 2022 - 2:21 PM

what a great hero 😎

Mark Hayes August 4, 2022 - 2:24 PM

Say hello to my little friend!!@

Ninja Kitty August 4, 2022 - 2:25 PM

This was even on the news in Colombia, he had a heart attack after he shot his gun. Poor old man just trying to make a living and then some thugs get him too excited and he almost dies defending himself and his business.

David Mills August 4, 2022 - 2:27 PM

i dont believe that guy is 80. i've seen 50 year olds that look and sound older

rjmprod August 4, 2022 - 2:29 PM

Shotgun the perfect weapon….certainly beats an ar for knockdown power….!

bob bobber August 4, 2022 - 2:29 PM

That old man just BLM'd the hell outta that guy!…..too bad he'll have to do it again when latrell Tyrone gets out with no bail

Dem Politicians INCHARGE these days are scary dangerous

GrandSpeakerBeaker August 4, 2022 - 2:31 PM

Funny how this footage out of CA made the rounds the world over in less than 24 hours, but Paul Pelosi’s DUI footage hasn’t been released. Glad this man was able to defend his business and make it out of it unscathed.

YAMA BUSHI August 4, 2022 - 2:31 PM

HE'S BEING CAREFUL, BECAUSE HE EXPECTS TO GET SUED OR ARRESTED!

REMEMBER, HE MADE ALL THE ANTI GUN, DEMOCRATS LOOK LIKE FOOLS.

SO….THEY'RE PISSED AND MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR RETALIATION ON THIS SHOP OWNER.

the dems want to ruin the US. that is the answer to all this senseless permissiveness to violent crime. get rid of the dems and your problems will be addressed.

The Doobie Sisters & Sack Blabbath August 4, 2022 - 2:34 PM

Too bad he didn't spatter his brains against the door and the cool ranch doritos.

Buck Naykid August 4, 2022 - 2:35 PM

The old man is an American HERO

Peter Richards August 4, 2022 - 2:35 PM

Ha, you go old man…!!! Blast away…

I'm in New Zealand 🇳🇿 , retailers have had enough and are fighting back against these low life

Frank Frederick August 4, 2022 - 2:38 PM

To misquote and old movie… "In Utah robbers are shot, in D.C. they are elected".

BROWNWRENCH BROWN August 4, 2022 - 2:38 PM

Another report said he used a rifle on the perp. So DID he shoot the guy's arm off?

Person Person August 4, 2022 - 2:41 PM

Best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a grandpa with a gun.

cebuanostud August 4, 2022 - 2:42 PM

Our human rights to protect ourselves at all cost.💯💪…have no age limit.

Amanda Van Heerden August 4, 2022 - 2:42 PM

Make America ungovernable and weak. Globalist agenda. The great reset is that crooks steal from hardworking people. You need every sane citizen standing up to this. It's not going to get better by itself.

Shoot first aim later. Legend

This is news I thought James Stewart had passed away Years ago.

The Scrambler August 4, 2022 - 2:44 PM

Oof… California… I imagine this guy will be prosecuted or his store burned soon

a butt load of Rock Salt delivers a important message to the uninformed

Ken Rust August 4, 2022 - 2:46 PM

The motivation is Black Privilege

Quincy Lewis August 4, 2022 - 2:51 PM

It makes sense to me. Destablize the country and install kommunism.

Tammy Teague August 4, 2022 - 2:53 PM

Good for him!!!!…WE ALL NEED AND SHOULD DO THE SAME.

Scrambles the Death Dealer August 4, 2022 - 2:58 PM

Good for him!

As the saying goes, When only seconds count the cops are minutes away.

Lady Freedom’s Raw Narratives August 4, 2022 - 2:58 PM

This is why we need our 2nd amendment right to bare arms. This is why we have it and we need to stand united and use it. The more good guys that have weapons to protect will outnumber the bad guys getting illegal weapons from say, cartels, gangs or other deceptive means, and they will find them, to terrorize the streets. People who obtain firearms legally and use them to defend themselves and others has and always should be what American freedoms afford citizens of this country. We should be proud of that and proud of this hero for acting swiftly to protect his life and the lives of his customers and employees. ♥️💪🏼🇺🇸

NOLL72 August 4, 2022 - 2:59 PM

The moron that 'had his arm shot off' is lucky that the owner didn't have 000 buckshot magnum loads in the shotgun and didn't aim at center body mass. Otherwise he'd be in the morgue right now. [Wink.] JMO.
