ATLANTA -- A well-armed couple opened fire with an assault rifle and pistol early Friday morning on some car thieves in southwest Atlanta.
The couple at a home in the 1900 block of Childress Drive told police that after somebody tried to steal their car last week, they rigged up a homemade alarm in their carport using string and cans.

Take their assault weapons!
The way people are arming themselves these days I won’t be surprised to see more of these stories.
Give them some more range time so they can hit what they aim at. That is true gun control.
This is the worst type of shooting. None of the bad guys where hit, and from the sound of it, I wouldn’t be surprised if neighbors find bullets in their houses.
‘S OK ....the perps probably left a trail of poop, easy to follow ....
Have they posted bond yet?
From a comment:
“It wasn’t that long ago in American history (100 or so years) when everyone had to arm themselves when walking around out West to protect themselves. If they can’t figure out how to control the crime issue, we might be entering a turnaround time period where we have to live in those times again.”
Maybe he’s right.
I think it was Elmer Kieth who said, “You can’t miss fast enough to win.”
The story makes it clear they only fired when they were fired upon. That is clearly self defense.
In some parts of Atlanta, an AK-47 would be underpowered. hehe
A shotgun is more practical in these situations.
You’re missing the point. They fired poorly. I wasn’t questioning their right to fire. I was criticizing their ability to respond effectively and safely.
Good on ‘em...
Better on ‘em if they had hit the perps...
Always remember: center mass, good sight picture, control your breathing, and squeeze through the trigger. Repeat as required.
And, practice, practice, practice.
“I won’t be surprised to see more of these stories.”
Oh, We’re going to see a lot more of these stories, but NOT because of the “way people are arming themselves!”
Already today, I’ve seen TWO stories about “assault rifles” being used somewhere. Just think we went, what, 5 years without so much as a peep about such weapons (reflecting the true nature of their significance in crime), and now all of a sudden, assault weapons are everywhere!!!!
What changed??? AG remarks perhaps?
I wonder what kind of car it is that it’s worth coming back a second time to try to steal it. Also, what went “wrong” the first time.
Any dead neighbors or was their own car the only thing wounded?
There a cheap and effective way to prevent car theft and you don’t have to worry about line of fire.
(sigh) You may be right. Look out for the evil “assault rifles” that are now killing women, children, minorities, and the homeless at an alarming rate!
Is there any doubt that the corrupt MSM is working hand-in-glove with Obama?
