No group of people take anything more seriously than bingo players take their bingo, and two guys learned that the hard way.

According to the Boston Globe, 46-year-old Charles Preston of Nasua, New Hampshire and his 20-year-old son Justin busted into a bingo game being held by the Blessed John Church in Nashua.

The pulled a gun and demanded all of the money in the room, close to $15 grand, but when the elder Preston put his gun down, he was pounced on by the bingo volunteers.

One volunteer grabbed the gun while the others tackled them and held them down till the cops arrived.
