Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

So you’re buying your kid a new pair of sneakers at this little¬†shoe store in Nashville, when three goblins run in, shooting off their mouths and a gun or two.

Do you take a little time to make sure that the three miscreants¬†aren’t perhaps raising money for their Boy Scout troop, or playing a little joke on the store owner?

Well, via Insty, not if you’re a man like this guy — who promptly takes a gun away from one of the goblins, then whacks one goblin, critically wounds a second, and wings the third (from all accounts). Given the odds against him, that all this happened in the space of a few seconds, and he had no prior warning of the attack, Our Hero is hereby presented with the Nation Of Riflemen Brass Balls Award (Bronze only; all three would have got him a Gold).

Dead Goblin count: 4

(With, we hope, at least one more to come from this incident.)

  1. Well, this certainly proves the “You don’t need to carry a gun; someone will just take it from you and shoot you with it” argument.

  2. It’s the feel good story of the spring, so far. No argument with the bronze. Re: crazyeighter’s remark – I’m having this argument with my 83 year old, only marginally ambulatory dad. He loves the late-edition Colt Detective Special I gifted him to commemorate the completion of his concealed carry classes. But his Libertarian contempt for The Man has discouraged him (thus far) from ponying up the the requisite state/local fees to secure the ccw permit. So he’s open carrying. Because it’s the law. Not carrying concealed. Because it’s the law. I vacillate between admiring his convictions, or grabbing him by the lapels and screaming WTF!!

  3. Good on this fellow. One reason I do TKD several time a week, although we do not do drills with a gun. We do sometimes work with knives.

    Still, firing till the threat is gone was probably not used in this case.

  4. Damelvian?

    Da-Melvian?

    Dame Lvian?

    Damelv Ian?

    You see people whose parents gave them names like that and you know they were doomed.

  5. Sounds more like a gang fight than an innocent customer taking charge. Gang A found Gang B gathered in the fancy-athletic-shoe store right before midnight and went in shooting.
