    Maybe I shouldn't enjoy sharing this story so much - but I do.
    Deputies: Teen stole guns, then killed himself by accident - KPTV - FOX 12

    Simple - ain't it?

    Wow. I believe this is the first documented case of a gun actually killing a person.

    That gun was so smart it discharged itself to protect the public.

    Finally a real-world case of “people don’t kill people, guns do” and the “victim” was someone who deserved it. ☺

    Now comes the lawsuit from the thief's family, claiming negligence on the gun owner's part for keeping the firearm loaded, when he should have known that it could be stolen by someone who was inexperienced enough to endanger himself.

    The shotgun did it.

    Burglar shot while fleeing from home in stolen vehicle - Koinlocal6.com
    Gee maybe Biden was right, at least partially.
    Get a shotgun AND an AR. That way, if someone steals them, the shotgun will use the AR to shoot the perp!

    I’m sure the next step is to require all of us to have a car seat for each gun we own so this type of Darwinian “tragedy” never occurs again. We have to think about the children you know and if this could save just one life….

    Am I the only one who sees this as a victimless crime (aside from the poor homeowner probably never seeing their guns again)? But then again, I often find myself laughing out loud when I read the stories in the “Armed Citizen” section of my NRA magazine so I’m probably not a good judge on this subject.
