State police said three suspects arrived at the home of David Braman, 69. The suspects, Francois Muchanic, 31, of Susquehanna, Dylan Brewer 20, of New Milford and Evan Hess, 20, of Forest City were driven to the residence by Muchanic’s girlfriend, Erica Major, 30, of Susquehanna.

Muchanic knocked on Braman’s door wearing a ski mask. The victim opened his door carrying a loaded 357 Smith and Wesson revolver. Muchanic told Braman he was having car problems and needed to use his phone, according to state police.

Trooper Mark Mulvey said Braman tried to close the door when he realized Muchanic was wearing a ski mask. State police said Muchanic then forced his way into the home and began assaulting Braman and knocking him to the ground.

Braman fired three shots at Muchanic and hit him once in the groin.

providing the proof of an old axiom which is clearly true, there is no honor among thieves.

Troopers say Muchanic fled the home, falling to the ground. The two other men, Brewer and Hess left Muchanic at the scene.

“Like a .357 to the groin”

Perhaps changing the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship somewhat.

Braman fired three shots at Muchanic and hit him once in the groin.

Hopefully it resulted in a complete vasectomy.

A better outcome would be 4 losers lying on the ground, unable to ever rob again.

Braman is being charged with performing a sex change operation without a license.

"Mr. Brewer and Mr. Hess fled into the rural landscape. Ms. Major picked up her bleeding boyfriend and put him in his car. They took off and headed for the New York border."

"He was also charged by the New York State Police as a fugitive from justice. He is in critical condition at the Binghamton hospital, state police said"

Not the sharpest tools in the shed. Anyone who tries to break into an occupied house in rural PA really is courting Darwin.

"And I get gas just about every day.... "

My car has a range of 700 mi.

I usually tap the home based tactical fuel reserve (not gas, Diesel) for about 5 gal/wk, thus not having to visit the gas station for months at a time.

Yeah, a .357 to the groin. It’s a shame he didn’t bleed to death.

As my Ag Teacher used to tell us, “it’ll take his mind off ass and put it on grass” (referring to castrating a bull calf).

No he was wrong! This law-abiding gun owner (who is obviously a bible thumping conservative terrorist) was wrong to brandish (as Sheen calls it) his “cowardly killing machine” at these misunderstood criminals!

He should have done like the liberals tell us to do... He should have asked his assailant to stop for a second so he could call the police.

The homeowner smelled a rat from the beginning, wondering why the Muchanic could not fix the car himself.

Yep. Lots of outsiders think Pennsylvania is Commieland due to all the idiots and fraud concentrated in our armpits (Philadelphia & Pittsburgh) and assh*le (Scranton). But everywhere else is Pennsyltucky.

We're second only to Texas in the sheer number of gun owners.
