Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

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…


  1. Love it.

    But one point: am I being overly sensitive that “civilian” is thrown around so casually these days to differentiate between a police officer and someone who isn’t a police officer? I feel like I’m seeing it more and more. And when I look at my older dictionaries (2000ish and before), they define “civilian” as “One not serving in the armed forces.” or “A person following the pursuits of civil or nonmilitary life.” I know words change and all, especially in English, but this one bugs me. Simply because: (i) the authority of the police is necessarily “civil” in origin in the states; and (ii) it creates an “us vs. them” view that I don’t like.

    Here’s a recent link on it:

    1. Not meaning to change the tenor of the discussion but:
      “us vs. them”
      When I was a very little kid in the early ’40s, my dad would tell me “If you’re ever lost or in trouble, just go to one of the men in a blue uniform.”
      And then we have Officer Mohamed Noor from MInneapolis.
      I never read anything about this travesty save in the Minneapolis StarTribune: why?

    2. I understood it to be ‘if you are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice’ then you are not a civilian. If you are subject to normal/civil law but not the UCMJ, then you are a civilian. Police and firefighters are civilians.

  2. I love it.

    Like the end of the “Invasion of Body Snatchers”. Our prospective mass shooter starts his rampage, then looks up and instead of fleeing victims, he sees angry gun-wielding non-victims closing in on him from all sides.
