Coffee Is An Effective Weapon!

Sat Oct 22, 2005 3:19 am

I wonder whether they will soon demand background checks at Starbucks and institute a waiting period before you can getting your hot cup of Java after this:

From CCN:

BLUFFTON, South Carolina (AP) -- A would-be carjacker got a different kind of jolt from his intended victim's morning cup of coffee, authorities said.

The suspect tapped the car window Wednesday morning with a gun and motioned the driver to get out, Chief Deputy Roy Hughes said.

But the driver -- who had just bought a cup of hot coffee -- slammed the car door into the carjacker's legs, threw the coffee at his neck and face and wrestled him to the ground, Hughes said.

A shot was fired during the scuffle but no one was hurt, Hughes said. He said the driver managed to get the gun from the suspect and point it at him.

The suspect ran into nearby woods, Hughes said. Deputies are searching for him and two people thought to be with him who drove off during the scuffle

Seems that down south they don't shoot as quickly as they do in Alaska  Wink

OT:

BTW ANCFlyer, do you know, whether the so called "make my day laws" as the one in Florida have actually lowered peoples inhibitions to use their guns in situations in which they feel threatened in any measurable way ? Does Alaska have such a law ?

Gutsiest move I ever saw Mav!

Actually I don't believe I'd risk my life to defend my car. That is what I pay insurance for. Now my home, different matter. Family, self, of course, but a car?

Yes . . .

A person may, when an attempt to steal his/her property, invade his/her home, commit a feloneous crime against him/her, shoot the perpetrator of same.

Some guy actually robbed a 7-11 with a cup of coffee a few years back. He poured himself a cup, didn't put a lid on it, went up to the cashier and did as he was going to pay for it. When the cashier opened the till, the robber threw the coffee in the cashier's face, grabbed the money in the till and ran off.
