    Employees of a gun shop surprised a man who tried to break into the store.
    The employees of Virginia Arms Company in Manassas stayed overnight at the business Sunday after someone tried to break into the store the previous night.
    Around 10 p.m., they heard someone trying to pry open the back door.
    They confronted the suspect, who ran to his car but he couldn't unlock the car door so he ran into the woods. Police arrested the suspect a short time later after he returned to retrieve his car. Tim Hickerson, 28, of Nokesville, Va., was charged with attempted burglary. Prince William County detectives said they were able to link Hickerson to several other burglaries in the county.Read more at the Washington Examiner: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/lo...#ixzz0pqX8d7Rl

    Ruthless People. The detective talking about the second gunman who thought the clown had shot at him, disbelieving it was the police. Hilarious scene in a hilarious movie!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You win... well, nothing of any value... ETA: Maybe an all-expenses paid vacation "to Haiti!!!"

    I think this guy is seriously in the running for the title.

    ....here's to hoping that VAC had security cameras - and place the continous loop of this idiots "spoils" on a monitor in the VAC store - right behind the cash register; with streaming note "ADC" (America's Dumbest Criminal - VAC should send in atape, too).

    Bernie/Robb and Company are GREAT folks - with the exception of two (2) 12-gauge shotties, every firearm that I own came from VAC; and they are the ONLY folks that I will allow to touch my weapons for any repair/gunsmithing.

    Guy shoulda had a V-8 while he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.....

    I'm glad to hear they got this idiot and no one was hurt. Bernie and all the other guys at VA Arms are extremely professional, and I would hate to see their shop get hit again like it did a few year ago.

    When did G&A get broken into? Were any firearms stolen?

    B&E at a gun shop... Almost as dumb as killing a former presidential candidates daughter in a hotel room that has a video security camera right over the door and hoping nobody will figure out it was you.

    Kudos to the employees for handling the situation very well and not sitting at home with their fingers crossed hoping no one would try to break in.

    Wait... the Manassas cops actually did something that DIDN'T P-O anyone? Amazing!

    (I know a lot of people in the Manassas/Haymarket area...)

    Also, what a dumbass!
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
