My only quibble with this story is that the goblin wasn’t dead at the end of it.
An employee of a gas station in the 200 block of West Camp Wisdom Road, near the border with Duncanville, alerted the mother about 10 p.m. that a man was trying to get into her SUV.
She jumped into the vehicle. When the man didn’t stop, she pulled a gun from the glove box and shot him in the head, police said.
The vehicle then crashed into a utility pole.
So far, so good. But the goblin didn’t croak, because:
“I should have just have emptied the whole clip but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him a warning shot that was it.”
I can’t criticize Our Heroine too much, because she stopped the danger to her kids, and that’s all that matters. However, I just hope that the thing ends here, with the choirboy in jail for a long time — too long to come after the woman when he gets out, or too old to try this again with someone else.
Sometimes, you see, it’s better to end the thing properly, even if you aren’t a killer.
Also Quote Of The Day:
“I had my own personal AK-47.”
Here’s the summary: man comes home, finds two (!) choirboys ransacking his house. They see him, start to pull guns on him, whereupon Our Hero grabs his “personal AK-47” from a closet and ventilates both said choirboys until they are dead.
Now go and read the luscious details, including the part where the DA doesn’t press charges on Our Hero.
Afterthought: He seems apprehensive that the choirboys’ acquaintances may attempt some sort of revenge. My suggestion: buy a couple spare AK mags. Bet they don’t; would you try and whack a guy who’s prepared to kill people over a TV set? It is, as they say, to laugh.
By now, everybody will have learned of the latest Righteous Shooting in Washington state — unless, of course, you depend on the gun-hating mainstream media for you news, in which case you would be completely in the dark about it because a Good Guy whacking a goblin doesn’t comport well with Teh Narrative (which states that all guns are eeeevil and gun owners are Literally Hitler).
Anyway, the story goes that goblin causes deadly mayhem in a WalMart, Hero Gun Owner shoots his worthless ass dead, the end.
Ordinarily, that would be sufficient cause for a Happy Dance, but this one has some Extra-Special Gunny Goodness about it. Allow an eyewitness to explain:
Megan Chadwick said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter. “He said he watched him (the shooter) take his last breath,” Chadwick said. “There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up — and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car.”
Chadwick said her husband was armed as well.
So by my count, that makes four law-abiding gun owners on hand in the WalMart parking lot, basically lining up to send the goblin to an early grave?
Now we can begin the Happy Dance…
“These guys can talk about banning assault rifles and banning guns, but when it comes and happens to them, they’re going to wish they had one.” — Scott Reardean, after stopping a carjacker.
Story here. My only quibble is that between the two gun owners, they somehow failed to shoot the damn goblin.
And never forget, but a few hours earlier:
As always, my gratitude to those brave men.
