I love it when old coots surprise punk ass kids by defending themselves. I'd rather the one kid didn't die, but hey, don't fuck with people. Sucks for their family and the old man too. :/ Darn parents. :cort:

Those punks should have known there is only one way to properly de-bike someone.

Well... One has to wonder just what said cyclist was doing with a gun in the first place? Either way, I ponder whether he shot to kill, or shot to injure. As harsh as it may sound though, if these youths weren't causing trouble and didn't pick off a seemingly weak victim, they wouldn't have pissed the guy off, he wouldn't have shot them, and they'd all still be alive.
Serves the youths right really, though a lesser sentence would have been far more... practical. Having been shot lets say?

In the US people don't like cyclists in general. Carrying a gun is a smart idea if you ride on some of the more remote trails in the US. On most of them you won't see another person for hours if at all.
I love reading these stories. Every time someone gets killed by a CCW permit holder there is one less stupid person on earth.

You don't shoot to wound. Center of mass is the easiest target to hit.
After reading this story I want a bicycle holster for a level action rifle for the zombie apocalypse.

Did the old man looks like this?
Seriously though, this is sad. In most normal countries this would have ended with some juveniles being about 50€ richer and the old man having his pride hurt and maybe his bike stolen.
