Robber Brings Baseball Bat to a Gun Fight

I know, the phrase world's dumbest criminal gets bandied about a lot. But, come on? This guy tries to rob a gun store with a .... baseball bat?

Surely, his level of stupid is off the Richtor scale:

Sheriff's deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.

But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.

Imagine that? A gun store owner has a gun.
