Today's Law-Abiding Citizen

Our winner, a resident of Jarvisville, West Virginny, killed her grandson while "scaring away intruders" who probably didn't exist.
Sheriff Albert Marano said William Owens, 11, of Jarvisville, was lying in bed when he received a single gunshot wound to his chest. Just prior to the shooting, Owens' grandmother, Tina Owens, 57, of Jarvisville and Owens' father heard what they thought to be intruders tampering with their properties outside.

Tina Owens went outside to investigate, taking along a .40 caliber pistol and fired multiple shots to scare away the intruders. One of the shots went astray, said Sheriff Marano, traveling into the house wall and hitting William Owens in the chest.  William later died from his injuries.

Tina Owens' home and William Owens' homes are about 200 ft. apart, said Marano. Tina hasn't been charged although the investigation is ongoing. When complete, the details of the investigation will be submitted to Harrison County Prosecuting Attorney Joe Shaffer for further review, said Sheriff Marano.

The only way to stop a bad granny with a gun is a good granny with a gun.

Fucking stupid. Half of the stories I read are about stupid people doing stupid things with their stupid guns - fondling them, "showing them" to people, pulling them out to emphasize their point during a drunken argument, shooting them in order to scare a dog, firing them in the air to "celebrate" something stupid.

What the heck was Granny and her son doing, watching "Li'l Abner" before running out to flush out the revenooers? Idiots. They killed a poor little boy.
