Have You Heard About the Lonesome Loser?

Two examples of why guns in the hands of the law-abiding are a good thing:

An 18-year-old Otter Creek man was arrested twice over the holiday weekend, both times after residents turned their guns on him.

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office arrested him the first time on a charge of shooting into the convenience store where his mother had recently been fired. The teen told deputies he used a BB gun.

Someone inside the store shot back at the man but missed him.

The second arrest was made after the man was found naked inside a teen girl’s bedroom. The 15-year-old girl’s mother held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

The "someone inside the store shot back at the man but missed him" is misleading, as the man purposely fired a warning shot to discourage the attack from continuing. .44-caliber goodness had the desired effect, and the kid (at 18 years old, a young man, really) ran away.

Kid needs counselling, badly. Has anger management issues and poor impulse control. He avoided death twice in one day. Hopefully he'll learn his lesson and straighten up.
