Santa Just Shot by Pellet Gun in Southeast D.C.

Posted on 12/24/2013 9:04:50 AM PST by conservaterian

Just saw this on local D.C. news..they even had it on video. Unbelievable, he was there for a toy give-away when he was shot.

Santa got shot over by a thug creep,
It happened before the night of christmas eve,
You can say there’s no such thing as satan,
but as for all us FReepers, we’re not deceived.

Accidental or deliberate shooting?

Was it a Muslim acting out his Inner MadMo?

What is Santa doing in D.C. on Christmas Eve?

He should be up at the North Pole by now, loading up his sleigh and getting the reindeer in their traces. What the hell is he doing in D.C.?

I feel sorry for the guy but it was sort of funny when he was saying Oh! Oh! Oh! instead of Ho! Ho! Ho! in the video.

Does Santa Claus have a backup ready in case of injury? Hope he signed up for OBarryCare before tonight's deadline.

Headline: Santa injured, Christmas cancelled as he has to sign up before OblahMaoCare deadline.

That was quite a neatly written ditty,
Composed so quickly and so easily,
What happened to “DC Santa” is a pity,
That not a real gun was used, makes us pleased.

It was Southeast DC. I’m thinking maybe he was in the wrong neighborhood to be wearing red.

Perhaps he was shot by someone who thinks only the government should be providing “charity”.

My brother shot me in the ass like the Waco Kid with a pellet gun when we were kids. It stung like hell and broke the skin but i didn’t cry like a little bitch over it. Good God is he ginning this up for a Workman’s Comp Claim? An Acadamy award?

If the Kenyan finds out Santa is giving away coal he’ll sik the EPA on him and shut down the whole cross-border toy give-away. Just can’t have coal-—and oil-—coming in across the northern border, doncha know?

No kidding. Man was that some crybaby.

When I gave my kids their first pellet gun, I intentionally shot myself in the forearm to show them that this was not a toy, that it was not to be used on each other, etc. Yes it stung and broke the skin and bleed a little. But that was a point blank bare skin shot.

Sorry to see the guy shot like that. The guy was out trying to do a good thing, and then this.

Well the pellets that come out of my pellet gun travel at 1000fps and will punch a hole in a 3/4 inch pine board.

Are you sure you aren't thinking of BB guns. The pellet guns I am familiar with can kill you. I have one that will go through a one inch pine board.

Nope Pellet. 50 years later that cute dimple in my left cheek from the hollow point reminds me of the day!! LOL

You can kill small critters with a .177 pellet gun. They can be pretty accurate. If it was Co2 or pumped up, it could be almost as bad as a .22 short.

When I was young, my no-mind brother pumped up a bb rifle, put it to my side, and pulled the trigger. I still have the mark 51 years later. I think he's still wearing the marks where our father taught him that what he did was a no-no...

My Daisy .177 shoots at 750 feet per second. It buries itself about 1/4 inch into a typical treated wood fence post at 40 feet.

And it’s a cheap pellet gun.

I got shot in the back with a pellet gun at age 14 from about 50 yards away. The pellet was spent out by that distance but it still hurt like hell.

We went out into the woods and played “war” with BB guns. And our parents knew about it. I had a guy in my sites at the same time he had me in his. He fired first and hit the knuckle of my trigger finger. Damn, that hurt. I immediately surrendered!

This same kid shot his brother in the eye. The BB stuck in his eyelid so the shooter walked up to his brother and plucked it out. It did not shoot his eye out.

Isn’t that an air rifle? To me, and perhaps incorrectly, a “pellet” gun/rifle/pistol is spring driven.

Actually it is piston/spring driven. One break over cocking sets the piston.
