Quote Of The Day - Richard Pryor Fan Club Edition

"I think every guy in the universe has wanted to do it. It was worth every damn minute in that jail."
Broward County, Florida resident John McGivney, on pumping five rounds from a .380-caliber semiautomatic into the hood of his 1994 Chrysler LeBaron. He was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of discharging a firearm in public.

Florida authorities would have given him a medal if he'd simply denied it gas and anti-freeze instead of shooting it.

A .380? Much too light of a load, even for a small sedan. Shoulda used at least a .40 S&W, .45 ACP, or better yet a .44 mag, if you don't mind lugging a heavy wheel gun. But a .380? For a Yugo, maybe.......

While I've never actually shot a car (on purpose, we won't go into accidental discharge), I have vented rage with a hammer, a steel-toed boot, and a hefty length of 2x4. There's a Ford Explorer in South Texas that still has a valid restraining order against me, if memory serves. I try not to think about it too much. *sob* DAMN BITCH *choke*

A .380? Much too light of a load, even for a small sedan.

Actually, it depends on whether it was charging him at the time. If it wasn't, then a carefully placed .380 would have brought it down -- he just would've had to follow it around through the streets for several hours to make sure it didn't hurt somebody before it finally died.
