Don’t you hate it when actual events make liars of those who would limit your rights? “Police say an Iraq War veteran thwarted two would-be burglars at his northern Michigan gas station by kicking one of them and ordering them away with an AR-15 rifle.” D’oh! We sure hope “Double Barrel” Joe Biden doesn’t hear about this. The news would devastate him. According to foxnews.com, Shawn Schank was in his Shingleton, Michigan store Sunday morning…
…when two people wearing ski masks forced their way into the building and approached the cash register. Police say Schank kicked one of them, retrieved the AR-15 from his office and ordered the burglars to leave.
Guess what: they did. Right after begging for their lives. And all without firing a shot.
Police say they arrested a 17-year-old from Shingleton and an 18-year-old from Munising.
We sincerely hope they had a chance to change their Underoos before being nabbed by members of the local constabulary. Moral of the story: don’t screw with a store owner who’s been in the sandbox.
