Punks Cross the Picket Line, Pay the Price

James Picket is an 80-year-old Texas resident and World War II veteran. Two punks tried to break into his house and rob him at knife point. I’ll give you a hint at what happened next: somebody had to call an ambulance — and it wasn’t for Picket.

“The only problem was I run out of bullets.”

Fortunately for Mr. Picket, he wasn’t in a “gun free zone” such as a campus or shopping mall — where local officials care about people so much that they force them to be sitting ducks for some psycho’s target practice — or he’d be dead right now.
