According to police, a 22 year-old dumbass named Derrick Mosely allegedly entered a Hillsboro, Oregon gun store with a knife and a baseball bat. He smashed the display case with the bat and helped himself to an (unloaded) handgun.
That’s about as far as his brilliant plan got him, because things went all stinky bad from there.
