Everyone's a tough guy with a shotgun in their hands—until your "victim" snatches the weapon and chases you down the street with it. A shocking video has emerged, showing a man walking down Burgundy Street in New Orleans during the early hours of Apr. 27. He's approached by a man with a shotgun who demands his money while pointing the weapon in his face.

In a swooping motion, the victim snatches the gun from the man with one hand and chases after him; it's unbelievable. The events that followed are even more shocking:

Moments later the victim was approached by two black males in a black four door sedan (possibly a Honda Accord). The driver of the vehicle said to the victim "give me my gun back and I'll give you your phone that you dropped". The victim then used the shotgun to strike the rear windshield of the vehicle causing it to break. The two subjects then fled on Frenchmen to St. Claude and then unknown.

Who is this calm, fearless man and who is the pathetic robber? If you're out there and just so happen to read this, you need to find a new (or actual) line of work. Crime does not suit you well; it's time to get out of the game before some innocent, unsuspecting citizen lowers the boom on you. You'd deserve it, too.
