Have you ever woke up in the morning and got the urge to walk along the interstate shooting at cars just to be an asshole? Well, on the morning of June 15, 2020 some 26-year-old man did and it didn’t take long for him to find out that was not a very smart thing to do… In fact, for him it turned out to be his last stupid idea.
Shortly after 0830 hours the police in Delta Township, Michigan received a report of a young man walking down a highway firing a gun into the air as well as pointing it at and shooting at vehicles traveling past him. At one point his stupidity reached a new high and he stepped onto the interstate and in front of a vehicle leveling his handgun on the driver who decided not to run him over and came to a stop.
The young 22-year-old driver of the vehicle was a responsible, legally armed citizen who I’m pretty sure is thankful he obtained his concealed carry permit. Because the young man was raised well and taught to be a responsibly armed American citizen, society no longer has to fear the irresponsible lunatic that was walking around looking for some helpless citizen to kill.
When the 26-year-old stepped in front of the 22-year-olds car forcing him to stop, the young driver opened his car door as he stared down the barrel of the lunatics handgun, swiftly pulled his gun and shot the madman standing in front of his car dead… It’s not quite clear why or how the young man was able to exit his vehicle, draw his gun and kill the lunatic without him shooting and it probably would have been more tactically prudent for the young man to shoot the lunatic through his windshield rather than risk getting shot stepping out of his car, but everything turned out just fine…
While things turned out just fine, it does illustrate the importance of incorporating some realistic training into your training program… There are things everyone should know about using an automobile for cover… Things like getting behind the engine block or wheels instead of a door and one of my favorites watching people learn the hard way is never using the hood for support, especially on a hot sunny day… LOL
The senseless loss of life is always a sad and terrible thing and it would be nice if we didn’t have such things to worry about in life, but they do exist and because they do exist, it’s always good to see a positive outcome like this one. As is typical in any shooting this one is being investigated… Hopefully the young man doesn’t have to worry about some liberal prosecutor charging him…
Remember, if you are a responsibly armed American citizen and you end up in a shooting, the only thing you should say to the police is that you want to cooperate but need to speak with your attorney first… Give them your name and SHUT UP!
