While the good book may be beneficial for the soul, it can also be pretty handy when it comes to protecting your chest. “Rickey Waggoner, a Dayton RTA bus driver, was making a mechanical fix outside his bus when three assailants approached him and shot him in what appears to have been a gang initiation, the Dayton Daily News reported….Waggoner reportedly told police that one of the assailants was heard telling another to kill the man ‘if you want to be all the way in the club.'” We’re pretty sure we know where Rickey will be this Sunday morning . . .
More from foxnews.com:
Waggoner was shot twice in the chest at close range, but a contemporary version of the Bible, titled “The Message,” absorbed the bullets that would otherwise have killed the 49-year-old bus driver, according to police documents obtained by the newspaper.
In the interest of promoting peace and brotherly love, we’ll avoid speculation as to the caliber the yoots were using. Despite being unarmed, though, Waggoner didn’t turn the other cheek.
Waggoner was shot in the leg after he tried to wrestle the weapon away from one of the suspects, according to the newspaper. While another assailant stabbed him in the arm, Waggoner was able to grab both the gun and knife, prompting the suspects — described as being 15 to 18 years old — to flee.
While it’s probably prohibited by his employer, The Message here appears to be praise the Lord and pass the concealed carry pistols.
