I'm not sure a guy who is so hair-trigger that an electronic beep would send him into paroxysms of panic ought to be packin' heat. Jus' sayin'.

And the car doesn't even explode...?

This guy's a security guard? Wonder what he'd do if startled by a shoplifter.

To paraphrase the late Charlton Heston from his NRA days, "Out of my cold, wet hands!"

You sure that guy isn't from Miami? Sounds like one of your drivers, Dave.

Who you calling acoward, bonmot?

If you can't get Nicolas Cage, do the next best thing...

It always helps the law suit to get a write up in the local paper and the cause of the accident documented in the police report.

Bet his ears are ringing now.
Hold on, I gotta answer this gun.
Ow! Man, I liked that ear.

I'm seeing Bruce Willis, myself.

"...shoot himself out." Clearly the reporter and editor were educated in California.

"He used his gun to shoot himself out, then flagged down a passerby."

The passerby was impressed by the sight of a wet, armed (and wet armed) security officer waving a gun.

Many similarities to the Miracle on the Hudson. A regular captain Sully this guy.
