The Wrong Answer

GUNS AS A TRANSMUTIVE PROPERTY

AMERICA: BORN IN BLOOD

  • Mason County, WA: A man found that someone had broken into his place of business and was using the shower there. Rather than insist that the intruder leave, he retrieved his handgun and shot the intruder (who was still showering) four times, resulting in the intruder’s death.
  • San Antonio, TX: Man #1 was walking down the hallway of an apartment complex and bumped into Man #2 and Woman #2. An argument ensued. Woman #2 drew and fired upon Man #1, who had to be hospitalized.
  • Mount Dora, FL: A man walked into a barbershop and asked to have his hair cut for $2. (Average price for a man’s haircut in America is reported to be $44.) The barber refused. The man returned with a gun and shot the barber fatally.
  • Burnside, IL: a son argued with his father over who was going to walk the dog. They shot each other multiple times. The son died of his injuries.
