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.
Why do I giggle like a little girl when I read stories like this one?
Villagers are praising a fire that destroyed an ‘archaic’ toll booth that charged drivers 12p in cash only to cross the Manchester Ship Canal and caused frustratingly long traffic queues. Warburton bridge toll booth is suspected to have been reduced to ash by an arsonist who became fed up of waiting waiting to cross the bridge.
But wait! The powers-that-be are not taking this lying down:
The booth’s owners, Peel Ports, are planning to replace the destroyed structure with a more modern toll.
…and I hope this one gets torched as well, especially if it’s an expensive modern one. For a 12p (50c) toll? FFS.
Anyone remember the spate of vandalism directed at speed cameras in Britishland a couple years back? I do:
When Gummint has to put up cameras to catch the people who are vandalizing cameras, that’s when we’ll know we’re winning.
In the meantime back here in Murka, we can just fall back on the old (hypothetical, that is) question of whether one should use a rifle or shotgun instead of playing with matches; and if a rifle, what caliber? Myself, I tend to favor the .45-70 Government, but I’m prepared to listen to other suggestions.
