Ah but you see joe-joe the id(you know the rest) accidentally ‘forgot’ the most important part of his ‘brilliant’ home defense strategy: you must use blanks in your double barrel. That way you put no one at risk (except yourself of course)- and after all the noise is what puts the crooks to flight………….
Masked guys leaning in his open window who threatened him with a weapon…… and there was a bright light coming from the bottom of the flying saucer in his backyard. Oh, and the aliens and masked men were White Supramist Communist Islamists wearing shirts that read “Virginia is for killing lovers”…. and when he shot at them they yelled “I hate cops”…. that is exactly what happened officer.
Look, if he had shot at burglars and missed I will support him. But making up a BS story because the polic arrive due to a noise complaint….
