I know of one the cato place missed in Mississippi. A friend of a friend shot his girl's aggravated ex-whatever in the guts with a SKS, successfully defending chickie's home/probably her health too. The shootee survived and went on to the state pen for trying to run down some police officers who were trying to check his ID at a road block or something, not the smartest feller, IMO. We all were wondering if he still had the colostomy bag when he got to the pen and if that made him more "user friendly". (dude was serious dirtbag and ruin of his whole dang family prettymuch)

Think about how full that map really would be if every single person actually reported when they had to draw there weapon. I was just thinking not everyone makes it public if they have to draw to stop someone and it's not called into the police dep, I know a lot of people will call it in but some just don't for some reason or another.

In todays world, many people are probably scared they will be charged with a crime, simply for defending themselves. I cant blame them.

Why would a law abiding citizen report that the goblin ran away? Who wants to be grilled like a criminal for simply defending themselves. Even if they are not worried about the police the goblin is gone, game over.
