What does a 70 year old man, a 50 year old non-working handgun, a bandanna, a grocery bag and a local bank add up to? Prison time:
Police say a 70-year-old man told them he tried to solve his financial problems with a grocery bag, bandanna and a 50-year-old handgun that doesn’t work.

Now obviously, this guy was desperate. Seriously, who tries to hold up a bank with a 50 year old, non functioning firearm? But he seems like a nice guy. Probably didn’t really want to hurt anybody. Even wanted to apologize to the teller.
Pity he couldn’t figure out a better way to deal with his financial woes. If I had a broken, 50 year old hand gun, and nothing to do, I’d hold up a bingo hall. “Please put your left hand in the air, and with your right hand, slowly pass all of your bingo cards forward…” That would be totally cool…
