Would-be robbers taken out by renegade Granny and her handbag.  Great morning video.

wow that woman has some balls! kudos to her for bravery. i dunno what to say about the 6 so called robbers fleeing on vespas. best part, the two who fall over on the scooter running from grandma...btw, that store clerk did nothing to dispel the stereotype of brits with bad teeth

The fact that the robbers used mopeds as their escape vehicles is hilarious.

Robbers riding vespas ,that is pretty weak, at least get a getaway vehicle that can out run the cops. It was like the other lady using her purse against that shooter. Grandmas=no fear

Kinda like that commercial where the granny is walking across the street really slow in front of a guy in a mercedes and he beeps at her. She hits the front of his car with her purse and his airbag goes off Grannys unite!
