In a viral video clip that's been viewed 2.3 million times so far, a man in a cowboy hat chases looters from a cigar store in Bellevue, Washington by aiming something at them and yelling at them repeatedly to β€œmove!” The looters exit the store hastily with their hands above their heads.

The Gateway Pundit reports the man was holding pepper spray, though the Washington Examiner reports the man was holding "what appears to be a handgun." The person filiming the video can be heard saying, "They got guns drawn," and "That's someone's business, yo."

The Examiner reports:

The video can be viewed here:
