A man was talking to a friend outside his home one evening when four men approached
and forced them inside the home at gunpoint. According to police,
the suspects made the victim kneel on his living room floor,
then forced him into his bedroom where they demanded money and property.
The victim reached into his nightstand, but instead of grabbing cash,
he produced a .38-caliber pistol. When the intruders attempted to wrest
the gun away, he shot one of them twice in the torso, prompting the
others to flee the scene. The injured burglar was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
It seems unlikely that the criminals wud have
let their victim survive long enuf to complain to police
or to testify against them in court.
Its a good idea to be prepared.
David, you can't spell a lick.
I hope that guy doesn't get convicted of something, because surely he could have talked his way out of it, and the dead guy might have written a children's book someday, or seen the light, entered the priesthood, and figured out how to make gasoline out of water.
Where'd you get a picture of my revolver?
Sure. Lots of children's authors force their way into homes, demanding cash. That explains why the contributors are always left alive and unharmed.
It looks like a S&W J-Frame to me, but it's a much copied piece.
