    A great and funny read.

    To the Guy Who Mugged Me Downtown (Downtown, Savannah)



    I was the white guy with the black Burrberry jacket that you demanded I hand over shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I hope you somehow come across this message.

    I'd like to apologize. I didn't expect you to crap your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that evening, and it wasn't that cold outside. You see, my girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol for Christmas, and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening. Beautiful pistol, eh? It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head, isn't it?

    I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge flopping about in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try to mug us again. I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your situation. I also bought myself some gas on your card. I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet, then I threw the wallet itself in a dumpster. I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell. They'll be on your bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Alltel recently shut down the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so I don't know what's going on with that. I hope they haven't permanently cut off your service. I was about to make some threatening phone calls to the DA's office with it. Oh well.

    So, about your pants. I know that I was a little rough on you when you did this whole attempted mugging thing, so I'd like to make it up to you. I'm sure you've already washed your pants, so I'd like to help you out. I'd like to reimburse you for the detergent you used on the pants. What brand did you use, and was it liquid or powder? I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky.

    If you read this message, email me and we'll do lunch and laundry. Peace!

    - Alex

    Don't know if he crapped his pants or not, but when I was doing oil burner service at a HUD housing development late one night, back in the seventies, I had a would be thief pull a knife on me and demand my wallet, watch and truck keys. I was putting my tools in the back of my van, I grabbed my semi-auto 1927 Thompson, complete with drum, turned around and said "you want what". He dropped his knife into the puddle he just made on the sidewalk, apologized and started crying. I was tired and wanted to go home and get some sleep, not wanting to spend the rest of the night dealing with the city police and the fact that I had a loaded weapon in my van, I did have a carry permit, I told him to go home and change his pants.

    There are may stories like these. Are any real, or at least a little bit real?

    NRA American Hunter magazine has a section that highlights reported incidents of armed citizens thwarting crimes.

    I think its calld "The Armed Citizen."

    There are 8 to 10 of those each month in the magazine.

    Estimates of law-abiding citizens using guns for crime prevention (sometimes just by showing the gun) range from hundreds of thousands of times per year to millions. (I think Gary Kleck studied this.) Many go unreported, so its hard to get an accurate number.

    Don't know what's true, but it happens, and by some reports, a lot more than you'll hear in the news.

    I've been seeing a lot more of this in the local news lately.

    Here is one that was in the news this morning.

    HOUSTON - Authorities say that a 30-year-old woman entered a Houston office and fired an arrow into a worker's chest, and that police later shot and wounded her.


    Police say Julie Parker entered the Texas Components Corp. office Monday afternoon armed with a bow, arrows, and a toy gun, and fired an arrow into 55-year-old Armando Silva's chest.

    Houston police spokesman John Cannon says two office workers then drew their own weapons and confronted Parker.

    Police say officers shot Parker several times after she turned on them with the bow. Investigators have not determined a motive.

    Parker was hospitalized in critical condition yesterday. She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    Silva was in hospitalized in good condition.


    Notice, it says two of the office workers were armed and confronted her.

    Hauxfan!

    Years ago my brother-in-law and I went to a boxing match in a bad part of Indy. I always carry a small Smith revolver, and made him aware that I had it on me that night.

    As we finally found a parking space, I was getting out of the front passengers seat when the pistol caught on the edge of the door. It came out of the holster, and fell to the ground beside the car to our right. I always keep one chamber empty, and the cylinder indexed to this open chamber, so I wasn't worried about an accidental discharge.

    As I bent over to get it, I looked at the car beside us, and all I could see were three sets of eyeballs staring at my gun.

    I quickly examined the gun, holstered it and walked away. I didn't think my brother-in-law knew what was happening, but a few feet away he started laughing at the other cars' passengers reaction.

    He still comments on that night.
