Sometimes being armed isn’t enough. Sometimes you need to be lucky, too. As in depending on the inherent stupidity of most bad doods. That’s pretty much the reason Ellenton, Florida coin shop owner Fred Vandergraff is still alive. “(La’Tay) McKelly entered the coin shop Wednesday, pointed a gun at the store’s owner and pulled the trigger at least three times, but the gun did not fire. The store owner had his own gun and shot McKelly. McKelly then pistol-whipped the store owner in the head before taking off.” The story doesn’t specify the gun Vandergraff used, so let’s skip the caliber wars for now, OK? Nor does it explain why McKelly isn’t sporting more than only one newly-added orifice. The failed stick-up man is currently in a hospital bed with a (sadly) non-life threatening wound where he’s recuperating before changing venues to the the county hoosegow.
