    Some things in this world are stranger than fiction. Such was the case in a
    story from Independence, Oregon, where a 19-year-old on his way to visit family
    decided to stop for a rest -- and burglarize a farm. He stole several things,
    which he hid behind a barn before fleeing on foot. He then stole a pickup, also
    on the farm, returned to the house, and loaded up his spoils. Before leaving, he
    added a shotgun and an AR-15 to his take. While he drove across a field to make
    his escape, however, he hit a bump, causing a part of the shotgun caught in the
    trigger area of the AR-15 to shift and depress the trigger. The AR fired once,
    striking and killing the burglar. Early reports are that the shotgun had indeed
    failed a background check. Either way, someone should alert Joe Biden. Despite
    his sage advice, when this shotgun needed to defend itself, it went for the
    AR-15.

    They probably won't even be charged but if they are they'll be acquitted. They were being gunnapped and they colluded to free themselves. Was the use of deadly force necessary, maybe not but what else was a shottie and an AR going to do, call 911?

    makes you wonder if the thief's family will try and sue the guy he stole the ar and shotgun from.

    Hopefully it didn't put a hole in the truck. That would be the real tragedy in the story.
