|From Album 5|
It’s bad enough that at least around here, just driving to a hardware store is a potentially life-threatening exercise.
The only thing that stops a shoplifter is a vigilante bystander with a gun. Or, at least, that’s what an unidentified woman apparently decided shortly before she opened fire on an SUV carrying a man who was fleeing the nearby Home Depot.
No, this isn’t an endorsement of shop lifting (duh), but in the greater scheme of things, the very real potential for some sort of tragedy from discharging a firearm more than outweighs the loss of “power tools and welding equipment.” What on earth was this person thinking? It’d be one thing if it was a case of assisting an individual who’d been robbed or mugged…but a Home Depot? They’ll lose more inventory by random breakage…Christ.
