Soda Can Assault Victim Wakes to Shoot Robber

Almost 28% of the folks in Texas who have a Concealed Handgun License have passed their 60th birthday. The antis, and some police officials, state that there is no reason for the elderly to have firearms, that criminals do not target our senior citizens.

Common sense proves them wrong, common sense is also one thing our seniors are full of.

From Fox News:

EL DORADO, Ark. — An elderly man beaten unconscious by an assailant wielding a soda can later awoke and shot the man during an attempted robbery, police said.

Willie Lee Hill, 93, told police he saw the robber while in his bedroom Wednesday night. Hill confronted Douglas B. Williams Jr., 24, of El Dorado, who struck the elderly man at least 50 times, knocking him out, police said.
Beating on a man almost 70 years his senior, this is one brave goblin.

This story does have a happy ending.
Hill, covered in blood from the attack, regained consciousness and pulled a .38-caliber handgun on Williams. Williams saw the gun and charged Hill, who fired one round, police said. The bullet struck Williams in the throat.
Good job old timer. I hope you heal quickly and completely.

The goblin did show a bit of remorse after being shot.
When police arrived, officers said Williams told them, "I can't feel my legs and I got what I deserved."

I always love these stories. Willie is a hero, and I sure hope he heals nicely and quickly.

Criminals don't target the elderly. I see. Guess they just go after strong, young, and healthy people just to make things fair and square.

This is but one of the reasons I detest politicians and am learning to feel the same way about certain members of LE.

The thought of some cowardly POS like that catching a bullet just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling for some reason...

A wheelchair AND prison for this guy makes me warm and fuzzy all over.
