They had it coming

The one guy you don’t attack is the Good Guy with the Gun:

Three men accused of trying to rob a couple Friday afternoon as they walked to their car outside a DeKalb County [Georgia] Kroger were shot in the shopping center’s parking lot, police said.

The couple were inside the store at the Wesley Chapel Square shopping center when they were followed by the three men, DeKalb police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.

Police said the male victim exchanged gunfire with the alleged robbers, injuring them. One of the men checked into the hospital, and the other two were found at the scene and brought to the hospital by first responders, police said.

Still, the authorities weren’t about to let this go by without some sort of rebuke:

“There was a great risk of people being killed,” Campbell told Channel 2 Action News. “People are lucky that no one else was hit.”

Blame the robbers. Three of them couldn’t hit that one guy, and he was evidently skilled enough to take them out without random shots going every which way.

    And one of the arguments for CCW reform was that if bad guys didn’t know which good guys had guns, they’d be wise to assume they all did.

    Admittedly, the assumption that bad guys were capable of being wise (as opposed to being wise guys, I suppose) may have been foolish.

    In any event, as far as I’m concerned getting shot should be considered a normal occupational hazard for criminals. Evolution will fix the problem if wisdom won’t.

    I don’t know about yours — or the one in De Kalb County — but my Kroger is a gun-free zone. Which does not fill me with warm fuzzies.

    Isn’t it funny, in a sad sort of way?

    When cops start shooting, there always seems to be some sort of collateral damges, such as in property or often, innocents.

    Citizens just hit their mark.

    Funny how that works.
