Monday Additions...

Fellow KTKC participant JB sends in a rather scary addition to the count:

Former Firefighter Shoots, Kills Armed Robber With Legal Concealed Handgun: ‘When I Got My Chance, I Had to Take It’
A quick-thinking former Houston firefighter opened fire on two robbers, killing one of them, after they invaded his home on Wednesday, police said.

The Houston Police Department said the homeowner, who asked not to be identified due to safety concerns, pulled into his driveway in southeast Houston at around 10 p.m. Wednesday when two armed men approached him and demanded money, KPRC reports.

He got jumped in his driveway, pistol-whipped, and led into his house at gunpoint. The goblins had him, his sister, and his niece lay down on the floor while they ransacked the house, and when their guard was down, he drew his weapon and shot one of them dead.

[pause to let cheers and hoots die down]

Now, maybe those choirboys had them lay down on the floor so they wouldn't accidentally trip and fall while their house was being cleaned out. Maybe the robbers just had their best interests at heart - you know, safe work environment and all - but depending on the best intentions of someone who has already threatened you with deadly force is never a great option.

It's good when the good guys win and the bad guys assume room temperature.

Dead Goblin Count: 328

That is all.
