If he’d known what he was up against, he probably wouldn’t have even bothered to try.
It all began at a Walmart in Jacksonville, Florida on Friday.
A man walked into the Walmart Liquor store and asked for change for a $20. The cashier told him that he needed to buy something, so he purchased a pack of cigarettes. When the cashier opened the register, he leaped over the counter and ran off with the register drawer.
He then attempted to carjack two different people but didn’t expect what he encountered.
A man was arrested Friday after he took a cash register drawer from the Walmart at River City Marketplace and then tried to carjack two people at knifepoint.
Christopher Raymond Hill, 36, was arrested on charges of strong arm robbery, carjacking with firearm or deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and trespassing, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office online inmate information search.

According to a witness, Hill then ran to a truck that didn’t start, so he attempted to carjack Scott Rearden.
But Rearden was able to pull his gun on the knife-wielding attacker.
The real-life punchline to a joke people tell all the time — Hill brought a knife to a gunfight.

“I turned the ignition off, grabbed my keys, opened the door and boom, there he was,” Scott Reardean said.
According to the report, Hill put the cash register in the Reardean’s truck bed and pulled a knife, cutting Reardean on the hands and leg, the arrest report said.
“I was bascially just doing this, trying to get the knife off me, and he’s like, trying to pull me and he yanked my shirt and ripped it all up,” Reardean said.
Reardean said to Action News Jax that he was able to grab his pistol from his truck and pointed it at Hill, who then ran away toward Starbucks.
There’s always a Starbucks.
Facing a gun deterred Hill, but he tried again.
Hill ran to the car of a woman who was in line at the Starbucks drive-through. She told police she rolled down her passenger’s side window to see what he wanted and she said Hill opened her door and got into the car.
The woman said Hill told her to drive because someone was chasing him. She told police she tried to push him out of the vehicle and he would not get out. According to the report, she was in fear for her life, so she got out of her car to to get her Ruger pistol out of her trunk.
Hill got out of the car and came toward her. She said she pointed her pistol at him and he ran away.
This guy had two guns pulled on him and he ran off both times.
Police arrived and found Hill barricaded in the bathroom of a Supercuts.
Hill apparently didn’t realize that he could have used the bathroom at the Starbucks.
He did come out when he was called.
According to the report, Hill told police, “The reason I was running and did this was because somebody was after me.”

Maybe he was afraid of the two armed ‘victims’.

It was WSVN in Miami that had the perfect quote by Reardon to end this story:
“These guys can talk about banning assault rifles and banning guns, but when it comes and happens to them, they’re going to wish they had one,” Reardean told the station.

The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
