Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Charles Augusto Jr.

Bad as things are getting under Hope & Change, it’s still not too late for some heroism:

A 72-year-old Irvington [New York] man turned a 12-gauge shotgun on four armed bandits who tried to hold up his restaurant supply store in Harlem Thursday, killing two and wounding the others, police said.

Charles Augusto Jr. later told police he had bought the weapon 30 years ago following a robbery. Police said he would not be charged. …

The shooting occurred Thursday afternoon at Kaplan Brothers Blue Flame Corp. in a business district on West 125th Street. After the men entered the store, they announced a robbery and pistol-whipped one employee, police said.

From about 20 feet away, Augusto raised the shotgun and fired three blasts, hitting all four suspects, police said. One died outside the front door; afterward, his body could be seen covered with a white sheet.

Another suspect managed to cross the street but collapsed and was later pronounced dead the hospital, police said. Trails of blood led police to the other two, who were arrested and taken to the hospital.

No wonder Democrats want to disarm us. Their constituents can get hurt.

It’s a good thing this happened now and not after a few more years of Obama. Augusto would be charged with murder and his business turned over to the surviving dirtbags in the name of social justice.
