After a man was shot and critically injured in front of a west Omaha house early Friday, his father fired back at the assailant.
So far so good, right. No one could complain about that. But, the story goes on to describe wild shooting on the part of the father at a target who may have already been fleeing.
Richard Hall, then fired off some .22 caliber rounds from a rifle at the assailant as he ran off...
Worse yet, while failing to hit the target, the house across the street was riddled.
Do you think the Armed Citizen is so desperate to keep up its numbers that it even includes stories like this? I realize to claim millions of cases a year, you'd have to include every possible one, but are the truly clean DGUs really so rare that this one made it on the blog?
A number of rounds hit a house across the street. One missed Jennifer Hiner’s head by just over a foot.
I noticed that comments are closed over there. That's pretty funny too. I remember a year or so ago, many gun bloggers disparaged the Brady Blog and the Gun Guys for that, but lately it's become quite acceptable for them to do this very thing. They used to call it censorship and anti-freedom. They used to claim that banning people from commenting and moderating comments was a gun control trick because we had the weaker argument and had to resort to those tactics as a result. The times have changed, have they not.
