Another Addition!

Reader Jeff sends in the latest addition to the count:

Knott Co. homeowner shot multiple times, kills gunman
KNOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State Police are investigating a deadly shooting.

At approximately 10:30 p.m. on Christmas night, Kentucky State Police in Hazard received a call that a person was possibly shot at the Jamestown Village Trailer Park in the Talcum community of Knott County.

They used a classic ruse - the old "we ran out of gas, can you help us" and when the homeowner was otherwise occupied, they pulled a gun and tried to rob him. Because this is a story about a successful defensive gun use, the reporting is horrible - there's no information on whether he used his own gun or if he took the goblin's gun away from him, for example. In any case, though, we have a live good guy and a dead bad guy.

And that's the way we like it here at MArooned, unlike the ghouls at the Brady Campaign who would rather a 61 year old man be at the mercy of criminals on Christmas day...

Dead Goblin Count: 352

That is all.
