Liberal New Yorkers are quick to offer a million reasons why American citizens should have their Second Amendment Right stripped away. Perhaps if they were on the subway when a bat-wielding homeless man began threatening them for accidentally brushing up against their bags, they might think twice about a citizen’s right to defend themselves against would-be criminals.

According to the New York Post -The target of the would-be slugger’s rage turned out to be an armed ex-NYPD cop, who pulled a revolver to keep the vagrant at bay — then chased him out of a station and into the arms of officers, police sources told The Post.

The stunning showdown unfolded on a southbound G train just before 7 a.m. Wednesday, when Brian Baska accused David Morales of bumping into him with a large backpack while boarding at the Greenpoint Avenue station, sources said.

That’s when Morales — a retired NYPD detective with 28 years on the job — pulled out his snub-nosed firearm.

Problem solved.

“You’re gonna hit me with a f–king bat?” the 54-year-old can be heard saying on a video of the incident, which was posted to the popular Instagram page SubwayCreatures on Thursday.

“Stay where you’re at,” Morales repeats. “Stay where you’re at.”

Watch:

As the confrontation unfolds, you can see the man in the suit who’s witnessing the crime, walk to the back of the subway car. It’s pretty safe to say; he was grateful to hear the man with the gun is a police officer who’s been trained on how to deal with these situations.
