…or “Why You Should Always Keep Your Bedside Gun Handy“:

An intruder broke into a West Palm Beach, Florida, home just after 4 a.m. Saturday morning and turned on the bedroom light before being shot and fatally wounded by a homeowner.

The actual article calls the corpus delicti  an “alleged” intruder, but he’s nothing of the sort as a.) he was found inside the house without having been invited in, and b.) he was unknown to Our Hero.  Ergo:  intruder.  Shot with an “alleged” gun.

Once again, note that the sequence of events was:  Choirboy breaks in;  turns on light to see what he can steal;  is confronted by half-asleep homeowner;  refuses to leave;  gets shot.

And no mention of said homeowner fumbling around in a safe or bedside drawer for his gun.

Just sayin’.

From several Readers comes this cheery little tale:

A suspected catalytic converter thief was shot dead by a concealed carry holder on the North Side late Wednesday, according to a source and initial information from Chicago police.


CWBChicago has learned that the dead man was on parole, and he was charged with illegally possessing a firearm two months ago — but state authorities decided not to revoke his parole, and he was released back onto the streets.

Read the whole report.  Doesn’t look like Our Hero is going to be charged, though.

I have to tell you that I used to live in Lakeview, but East Lakeview (next to Lake Michigan);  West Lakeview was an extremely pleasant part of town back then, and I could quite easily have lived there had we not found our wonderful apartment when we did.  I guess the scumbags are migrating…

Sent to me by several Readers, this joyful story:

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the 77-year-old was in his garage when a vehicle pulled up and the alleged robber exited and “demanded his belongings.”
The 77-year-old, a concealed carry permit holder, drew his gun and opened fire, striking the alleged robber in the head and chest.
The Chicago Police Department noted that the shots proved fatal.

Mozambique, baby!

Best part:

“Offender was also using a vehicle that was carjacked yesterday.”

… just to help him get to choir practice, of course.

Guy gets fired, is pissed off about it, goes home, fetches a gun, goes back to his former place of employment and starts voicing his grievance by shooting people.

This being rural Nebraska, however, there just happens to be a shotgun lying around, so the aggrieved assumes room temperature, but sadly, only after killing two people.

Of course, had he not looked down the naughty end of a shotgun, there’s no telling how many more people he’d have killed because as usual, the police were miles away — but that’s not the way it’ll be reported.
