After the men entered the store, they announced a robbery, and one, armed with a semiautomatic handgun, pistol-whipped an employee, police said.2 dead and 2 wounded....I wept...Wait! I laughed. Sorry. I get those words inverted.
From about 20 feet away, Augusto raised the shotgun and fired three blasts, hitting all four men, police said.
Of course the article had to bring in the government to piss me off.
New York City police said they were investigating whether Augusto had a permit for the shotgun. The New York Times, quoting a law enforcement official, said on its Web site the district attorney was considering a possible misdemeanor weapons charge against Augusto, which would indicate he did not have a permit.He just stopped a crime, and a crap load of future crimes in a obviously legal shooting and they hassle him over a damn permit. People wonder why I'm a libertarian.. It's crap like this that does it.
