Why we love Lumpy...

Today's dumb crook story? The guy who tried to stick up the used car salesman wearing a "Friends of the NRA" hat.

You gotta wonder about the internal dialogue the goblin had going on: "Hmmm... Who am I going to try to gank today? I know! Let's go after the guy who held a machinegun shoot at the local range for a political fundraiser!"

Wow. They say many criminals are dumb, but this takes the cake.

I'm glad no one was hurt. I'd be very interested in a first-hand report from Lumpy himself - what were the "signs" that made him uneasy, and how did he outdraw the crook (was the perp carrying in a holster? what kind of setup did Lumpy have?). It should be safe since obviously he's not facing any civil suit or criminal charges.

Here's to happy a ending bereft of discharge of weaponry. Yet another giggle.

Yeah, Lumpy. Glad you didn't have to use that .380, however.

The KNS got the story from you. A newpaper being scooped by its own blog not only made Instapundit, but earned the vaunted "Heh."
Can "Armed Citizen" be far behind?

Indeed.

Even armed robbers have a website these days.
