Freelance tax collector tries to rob a convenience store in Derry, NH, and gets a face full of pepper spray in the process. Then he drives off, runs his car against a utility pole, and is promptly picked up by the Derry Five-Oh.
The license plate on the car is from MA, by the way. He probably figured the yokels in the sticks north of the border would be easier pickings than the ones in his home state. That’s just what I’d do if I lived in a state with pretty onerous gun control laws…I’d cross the border and commit my robbery in a state where carry permits are $10 for four years, and issued to any non-felon who wants one.
I’m thinking about sending that store owner a thank-you card and a case of pepper spray…the tall boys that look like fire extinguishers. (Pepper spray requires a Firearms ID card in MA, by the way. They can’t just have people indiscriminately defending themselves against robbers, you see. That way lies Wild West anarchy. You know, like we have over here in New Hampshire.)
