Harlem storeowner, 72, takes on 4 robbers with a 12-gauge. Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA), joins Cam Edwards by phone to discuss the fascinating story of Charles "Gus" Augusto, who turned his shotgun on four criminals who had tied up and pistol-whipped his employees. While it is not clear whether registration for the gun is up-to-date, King says Gus's heroism will probably not only keep him out of jail, but it will help New Yorkers see the importance of private gun ownership in the face of Mayor Bloomberg's anti-gun campaign.
