Was This a SNL Skit?

6/12/18 WSVN:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WSVN) — Police say a man who tried to carjack two people was thwarted after the victims both pulled out guns to protect themselves.
According to Fox 30, Jacksonville police officers arrested 36-year-old Christopher Raymond Hill, charging him with strong-arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing.
Detectives said the incident began when Hill robbed a Walmart liquor store, and attempted to flee in a silver Ford SUV. However, witnesses said the vehicle would not start, so he first tried to carjack Scott Reardean at knifepoint, cutting him on his arms and legs.
“I reached in between my glove box and my console, between my seats, reached down and got my weapon and brandished it for him,” Reardean told WJXT. “He was like, ‘Don’t shoot me.’ I was like, ‘Then get out of here.’”
Hill then jumped into the passenger seat of a woman’s car in a Starbucks drive-thru. Police said the woman got out of her car and grabbed a pistol from her trunk, pointing it at Hill until he ran off.

Are you sure this was Jacksonville Florida and not Laredo Texas. Seems the only safe car this guy could jump into would have been a Police cruiser.

Don't be dissing Florida. They were shall-issue when this was a CRAZY idea.

These days in California the only worries he'd have is that he might have to shoot it out with all the other hijackers after the same car.

The people have all been successfully disarmed (and if someone were to pull a gun on a hijacker, the victim would be the one going to jail.)

You made the right choice, Clayton. Soon I'll be packing my bag, too.
