    The Hoplophobes got it backward

    The hoplophobes, "The criminals will just take your gun away from you and shoot you with it!"

    Didn't work out exactly like that in this case.

    MUNHALL, Pa. -- Police said a teenager was trying to rob a woman in Munhall when he was shot and killed early Friday morning.

    ....

    Police said the unidentified woman wrestled the gun away from Heath and shot him.

    The little dirtbag's father said, "He not a bad kid."

    Right pops, he's just running around robbing people with a gun.
    Fortunately, the victim he chose was tough enough to end his career.

    I love a story with a happy ending.

    Maybe incidents like this one are causing some crooks to carry empty guns, like the recent garage burglar thread, thereby eliminating getting shot with their own gun.

    A sudden and acute failure of the victim selection process.

    The father is probably a dirtbag himself and/or failed to mentor his son on what is right and wrong. Like father, like son.
    Unfortunately, the hoodlum's father can still sue the victim and it stinks.
