This is true in the vast majority of robberies.  As long as the bad guy has no intention of shooting you, you can 'scare them off'.  In most robberies the gun is a means to increase the rate of compliance and to make the transaction go faster, it is not intended to be used.

This, in a lot of cases, the gun is used as a bluff that the perp doesn't expect to get called on. In that respect it often is when that bluff gets called that things often go "sideways" for all involved.

The story said the gun jammed so these samuarai warriors may have just gotten very lucky.
