A man in Oregon thought this would be a good idea — evidently not.
The Washington County sheriff’s office says a man who attempted to rob a Beaverton gun store with a baseball bat and a knife was thwarted when the manager drew his own gun.
The sheriff’s office says the suspect walked into Discount Gun Sales Thursday afternoon, smashed a display case with the bat and removed a handgun.
Moments later the manager armed himself and ordered the suspect to drop the gun, the bat and a knife he also was carrying.
The manger detained him until deputies arrived and arrested the 22-year-old Beaverton man on robbery and other charges.
