The mainstream media normally restricts itself to stories of defensive gun uses (DGUs) where someone is shot. If it bleeds, it leads! But wait! Here’s a DGU from patch.com where no one was shot and the bad guy was deterred.
A 23-year-old resident told Deputies that he had been in his bedroom when his dogs started barking. Thinking that someone was in his home, the man grabbed his 12 gauge shotgun, loaded several shells of ammunition, and walked out of his bedroom. As he made his way to the living room, he spotted a man dressed in all black with a ski mask over his face.
Upon being confronted, the intruder ran out the front door. Deputies conducted an area search and a K-9 Unit attempted to establish a track of the suspect to no avail.
I’m sure some of you would have preferred the perp’s perforation. I understand the logic: one less bad guy roaming the streets, looking for more subservient victims. A bad guy who might come to the next fight in a proactive mood, armed for the task.
But ServPro. And lawyers. And nightmares. And therapists. As far as I’m concerned this was an excellent result. Agree?
