When you can’t use a gun, use your wits. A woman in Washington, D.C. scared off a would-be mugger Monday night by telling him she was an intern for the NSA and had no cash to give him. When he demanded her phone, she told him that due to her employment, it would be tracked “within minutes” by the NSA and would be more trouble for him than it was worth. Deciding that tangling with the NSA was more than he bargained for, he ran off. It’s good that it worked out well for the woman (who most assuredly does not work for the NSA), but I wouldn’t bet my life on it working twice . . .
In case you were wondering, yes, people are actually getting in trouble for having more than 7 rounds in a magazine in New York. A Lockport, NY man was arrested and cited for violation of the SAFE Act Saturday morning. When the vehicle he was riding in was stopped by police for a traffic violation, he informed police that his semi-automatic handgun, for which he has a permit, was in the glove box. When the officer inspected the weapon, he found that it had 10 rounds of 9mm ammunition in the magazine. If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, he could face a $200 fine and/or six months in jail.
Failure: Rule #4, Know your target and what is beyond it. A Nashville, Tennesee man was “playing” with his gun (his words) late Sunday night when it discharged, going through the floor and striking a woman in the apartment below him in the shoulder. She was sleeping, six feet from the baby’s crib, with her husband and six-year-old also in the house. She was hospitalized with serious, but not life-threatening injuries, the bullet having stopped in her chest where doctors intend to leave it. Dumbass was arrested, both for reckless endangerment and for the drugs police found in his apartment. I’d also put money on evicted.
A South Florida man is in custody on “multiple charges” tonight after an altercation involving multiple firearms outside a Lake Worth sports bar. After being denied entry when “he attempted to enter the bar with a firearm and knife holstered on his side,” Roland Dumdum [absolutely his real name] left, but then returned with an AR-15. When witnesses ran to their car, Dumdum chased them and fired one round through the passenger window. One person in the car “handed over about $450 in cash, his cellphone, condoms and a lighter. After being robbed, that victim took off running toward the bar, prompting Dumdum to fire 19 shots at him.” The story makes no mention of any hits. When police arrived, they found Dumdum still outside the bar, and took him into custody. The Aristocrats!
