Man beaten with his own shotgun following two failed robbery attempts of provoked victims

This is the drunken robber who was left badly bruised after he was beaten with his own shotgun by passers-by.

John Columbus Beane, 58, appeared in a West Virginia county courtroom Friday admitting to two charges of first-degree robbery in November that ended with the butt of his own shotgun clubbed repeatedly into his face and head.

-snip-

His first was a raid of Husson's Pizza just hours before.

During the 8pm ambush he entered wearing a ski mask and sunglasses while pointing a .410 shotgun at Husson employees.

All managed to escape out the back door leaving Beane to struggle, unsuccessfully, with the cash register.

He left empty handed.

While police were still responding to the Husson's burglary, they got the second call to Linda's.

At their entrance they found bar patrons had apprehended his weapon before breaking it to pieces on his face and head.

They repeatedly clubbed him until police arrived.

It’s not too late - there are an amazing number of Hello Kitty rifles out there:

One of the nice things about the Daily Mail is that they almost always post pictures with the article, gives the story another dimension.

No wonder Iver Johnson shotguns are getting so hard to find! This also marks the absolute nadir of Red Neck good manners! Taking a .410 to a bar fight? No class, dude.

Miss Manners says it is impolite to interrupt anyone's drinking with anything less than a 16 Gauge.

Why is it that our MSM can devote gallons of ink and tons of newsprint to the Whitney Houston story, yet we must depend on the UK press to cover this affair of vital interest to our nation?

Good thing the guy is white. Otherwise the bar patrons would be charged with assault.

Question, if you load .45 Colt Rimmed in to a .410 will they fire OK?

I see the Taurus Judge .410/.45 but was wondering if it is possible to do the same with a .410 single shot?

Yes, I did it with my old single shot .410 after my mom bought herself The Judge for her purse carry gun and I fired it a few times.

Don’t mess with my mama, she’s too old and just doesn’t give a damn anymore with the way the world is turning to hesitate to defend herself with extreme prejudice....
