Dept. Of Righteous Shootings

Reader Dan M. sends me this wondrous tale:

The resident of a home in DeKalb County, Georgia, opened fire on four alleged robbery suspects, killing one and wounding three, around 5 p.m. Friday.

Now even though we’re all cheering Our Hero for his exemplary behavior, I know that some of you are going to turn up your noses at the 25% fatality rate;  but let’s instead congratulate him on the 100% hit rate, and the fact that three of the four choirboys ended up bleeding on his lawn, one to death, and only one was able to hobble away from the scene (as far as a hospital, where he was nabbed anyway).

And we don’t even have to play the “Guess The Race” game on this one, with names like “Jacqueze” and “Taneaious” in the police report.

All in all, an entirely satisfactory outcome.


  1. All that matters, really, is good guys safe, bad guys hurting. Give our hero free replacement ammunition and a complimentary gun cleaning. And maybe a free coupon for Arby’s.

  2. I’d really like to see a match stage simulating this. You have a doorway with four hostiles on your side of the doorway wired or roped to exit through the door on the beep. Of course they’ll interfere with each other and you have to stop shooting when the last one clears the door. Wonder how many hits I could get out a 20 round mag dump.

  3. From the press-release:
    “McCune later died a short time later…”
    As a Perfesserioneral Edtior (you that read right), I am semi-encouraged by all this ‘later’ business.
