And An Addition To Close Out The Week

Eight additions in two weeks. Not bad, not bad at all. This one comes from Alan in VA.

Armed Robbery Suspect Shot and Killed By Homeowner in Pompano Beach
A homeowner shot and killed an armed robber with the suspect's own gun in Pompano Beach early Tuesday, officials said.

The shooting happened around 5:15 a.m. at the Conch Key Villas in the 400 block of Northeast 1st Street, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.
You know, this is far from the first DGC where the homeowner in question used the bad guy's gun against them. I'm starting to think that the "don't resist with a firearm, they'll only take it away and use it against you" BS from the anti-freedom brigade was taken whole-cloth from stories like this and twisted 180ยบ. Here's the thing to consider: Which is the media more likely cover - a story where someone with a CCW has their gun taken away and gets shot with it, or a story like this one? I'm willing to bet money that the former would get 10X the coverage of the latter, especially on the national scale...

Looks like we're on pace to hit 400 before summer - or maybe the end of next week!

Dead Goblin Count: 398

That is all.

By definition you would not see the story where the goblin shoots the home owner with the homeowners gun because then the goblin takes the homeowners gun with him when he escapes it goes down as an unknown homicide. And there is probably no one to report what happened. Or the missing weapon
