A couple of weeks ago, down on his luck D-List actor Tom Arnold got a visit from the Secret service for making some very ill advised threats to the President.
He then doubled down on the lunacy and made up some statistic about gun owners that was so fantastical and imaginary that it could have been a character in a Disney movie.
That being said, it would be safe to assume that the woman who shot and killed an escaped convict after he kicked down her door and was going to carve her up in her own bedroom with a knife sharpening tool would have some things to say on this issue that would be a little bit more educated of an assumption that some guy whose fame was for five minutes over twenty years ago who makes crap up about law abiding gun owners when he isn’t threatening politicians.
Fox News reports – Hours after he and another inmate escaped jail after beating up a security guard, a South Carolina inmate was fatally shot after he broke into a woman’s house, officials said.
Bruce McLaughlin Jr., 30, was shot in the head by the woman after he kicked in her back door on Tuesday, according to Pickens County authorities.
After he entered the home, McLaughlin grabbed a knife sharpening tool from the kitchen and headed toward the woman’s bedroom around 3 a.m. Sheriff Rick Clark said the woman was home alone and had undergone concealed weapons training at some point prior to the incident.
“This was a big guy. If she hadn’t had a weapon there’s no telling what would have happened,” the sheriff said. “I gave her a big hug. I told her how proud I was of her.”
Clark said the incident was “a shining example” of why owning and knowing how to properly use a gun is important.
