Finally, a happy trigger lock story:

A bar owner in Indiana and three of his customers beat a would-be robber so badly last Wednesday that the shotgun-wielding suspect required nineteen staples to close the wounds to his head.

Donald Willis, 46, entered the bar holding a shotgun. He ordered the owner and three customers to get on the floor. Not impressed, the bar's owners charged Willis, knocking him to the floor. A customer grabbed the shotgun. Another struck Willis on the head with a bottle.

Such bravery may have been encouraged by the fact that the shotgun in question had a trigger lock installed that was plainly visible! When police examined that shotgun, they found it to be unloaded.

The suspect was arrested. No one else was injured.

Comment: This is the first and only "good" outcome involving a trigger lock I've seen. Hopefully, it will become a trend among armed robbers!

I love dumb criminals! :D

"Honey, who won the Darwin Award this month?"
"Nobody yet dear, why?"
"Oh nothin', but I figure I'd try my luck at the bar.."
"OK, and don't forget to get some milk when you come back..."

:evil:

Yeah, but he's qualified to be the Democratic (sic) party presidential nominee, so let's not write him off as a total loss, eh?

Oh, well, except for serving as a bad example.

C'mon guys. Politics suck but there are pro-2nd Amendment Democrats out there. Let's not isolate our allies. Don't think I'm a bleeding heart either. I can't stand Fineswine or the rest of the crowd that want our guns.

BTW, returning to the would be robber, bad guys are bad guys and this guy is Darwinizing himself.:D

Probably a pneumatic stapler for roofing. Very good at closing scalp wounds. A little tequila for antiseptic and anesthetic, and the robber is good-to-go.

(The above is just a joke. Please do not administer first aid with any pneumatic construction equipment. That's strictly for professionals)

Regards.

"Honey, who won the Darwin Award this month?"
"Nobody yet dear, why?"
"Oh nothin', but I figure I'd try my luck at the bar.."just about killed me!!!!!!

They're probably going to close this thread soon, so as to not offend any Democratic Party presidential nominees lurking, so I"ll just pre-delete my comments. :neener:
