Friday Addition!

A reader (not sure if he wants his name broadcast, so I'm leaving it anon) sends in the latest addition to the DGC.

Atlanta police: Robbery suspect shot and killed by intended victim
A Christmas Eve robbery turned deadly in southeast Atlanta when the would-be victim shot and killed one of the alleged robbers, police said.

Police were alerted to the shooting about 10:30 p.m. Monday when a deceased male was dropped off by a private citizen at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said.


This is exactly how it's supposed to happen. Criminal uses their weapon to threaten an innocent person. Innocent person happens to be a concealed permit holder legally carrying a firearm. CCW holder has the means and the determination to stop the assault on his person, and in the response the goblin happens to be shot. Goblins being goblins, and there being no honor among thieves, he is dumped unceremoniously at the local hospital, where he expired of his wounds.

Don't threaten people with physical violence, don't get shot dead in response. It's really just that simple. Again, though, this will count as a "child killed by gun violence" by the candle holders - their definition of "child" is similar to that of ObamaCare, considering folks up to the age of 26 as "children". And never mind that this goblin's own actions caused his demise - it's obviously the fault of that eeeevil NRA and those mind-controlling firearms.

Because, you know, heaven forfend we hold people responsible for their actions.

Dead Goblin Count: 353

That is all.

First, I shed no tear for the dead goblin. Goblins reap what they sow, and I concur with your "Don't threaten people with physical violence, don't get shot dead in response" assessment.

However, I worked EMS in Atlanta for a number of years. I know the location mentioned, and knowing the general population of that district, I don't know if I'd jump to the conclusion that the would-be-victim/"innocent" person necessarily had a CCW permit.

Possibly, yes, but I'm skeptical.
