    39 Warning Shots???

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/virginia-...g-there-report

    Ok, I had several questions come to mind, and I think they were in this order.

    1. 39 shots? What the hell was he shooting?

    2. Why continue "warning" after the first couple shots?

    After reading the article and seeing the pictures...

    If you're in the basement, and your family is upstairs sleeping...why are you firing "warning" shots at an upward angle toward your family?

    I think this guy needs to be charged with wreckless use of a firearm.

    39 warning shots...inside your own home.

    I have questions.

    #1 being- what was the weapon?

    Related- #2- was a reload (or reloads) involved?

    ETA-

    This article says it was a handgun:

    Assuming this is accurate ( a dangerous assumption where local news is concerned)....I have more questions.

    The fight ended after the 12-year-old shoved a wrench into the intruder's neck, WRIC reported.
    First off...F*** Yeah! You go kid!!! Nice job.

    Next, I have a couple speculations, but that's all they are.

    It's possible the guy didn't want to shoot a woman. I have a friend that's this way. Says he probably wouldn't be able to shoot a woman regardless of what she was doing. If he's having doubts just thinking about when he's safe then he'd probably be correct if that time came. Silly, I know. I've tried in the past to talk to him, get some training, etc. He's a gun owner...meaning he owns a gun and that's it.

    I can't imagine firing that many shots and NOT trying to hit my target. "Warning shots" are BS anyway, but more than one? WTF? The only thing I can come up with is that he didn't want to have to shoot her and was just trying to drive her out of the house. What other reason could there be?

    Another possible solution, she was his side dish and didn't want to hurt her.

    Maybe the warning shots was because of her blue hair so he knew she was not the real devil (like red headed women).

    Where was the terminal point of those 39 bullets?
    He did not think of an innocent person on the far side.

    A newspaper citing the local CBS affiliate on the type of weapon? It could've been belt-fed and they'd call it a handgun (pistol-grip after all.)

    Idiot who shot up his own house has a gofundme to cover the costs of fixing the house, that the idiot put there.

    After the first miss and the crazy/naked/claiming to be the devil/stranger in your home isn't deterred? Center-mass seems more appropriate than another 38 rounds into the sheet rock.

    Thankfully there was a 12 year old with a wrench to put an end to the madness.

    That photo of the wall is interesting. It's a stairwell, and kinda looks like someone shooting down the stairs and into the wall. That suggests perhaps the dad was at the top of the stairs, firing shots past the intruder every time they tried to come up?

    For cripe's sake, though, after the first reload it's time to shoot the b****. Are you hoping the 31st shot is the one that changes her mind?
