No, that is not a plan there. The thugs there are hard-core. Before you could blink (or even take the weapon out), they would have the weapon, shoot YOU with it and then throw it on your lifeless body after it had been thoroughly wiped off with a piece of YOUR clothing. (no prints, no evidence and the gun is registered to you).

Heard of this happening many, many times. These people don't play around.
