Craig Noggle, a soldier living in Akron, Ohio, does not like breakfast cereals.
At least, that’s what seems to be the case after he brutally gunned down his Count Chocula look-alike neighbor for the crime of dropping by.
What kind of soldier can’t deal with a minor trespassing issue without shooting to kill? Honestly.
An aging, 66 year-old, survived-three-strokes-and-two-heart-attacks veteran; that’s who.
Craig Noggle was attacked by his neighbor, Count Chocula cosplayer Daniel Givens.
Strangely, even though he was armed and well within his rights to simply shoot The Count, Mr. Noggle went hand-to-hand, first.
Due to the violence and intensity of Chocula’s assault on Mr. Noggles, he was unable to call 9-1-1 or draw his weapon, even after he warned the Count that he was armed and willing to shoot.
But the elderly, the disabled, the disenfranchised, the physically weak don’t matter to those whose sacred mission it is to ensure that these same people are relieved of the capability to defend themselves with the best tools available.
Late last week, another undead launched his own attack. Not on any one individual, but on the human right to self-defense as enshrined in the US Constitution. The well-guarded (at taxpayer expense) Justice Stephen Breyer, 78, went on record on PBS’ Charlie Rose as saying that the Second Amendment does not protect the right to self-defense.
While he, himself, is not protected by the rings of armed good guys surrounding other anti-gun cultists, what other opinion would one expect from someone who owes his livelihood to a lifetime appointment during the anti-civil rights/2nd Amendment Clinton Administration at a place of business where the First Amendment is nigh unto non-existent?
But let’s get back to our elderly protagonist. What would the Democratic Party have had him do? Run? Scream for help? Quickly retreat to a safe space, like a bathroom or a college campus? Hard to do with the damage that’s been done to Mr. Noggles’ body by the ravages of time and military service.
Mr. Noggles fought with Mr. Givens, but ultimately came to the conclusion (while still under attack) that he was unequal to the threat he faced. He managed to fight his way to his knees and drew his pistol, firing once and striking his attacker in the heel.
Mr. Givens was taken into custody after he ran back to his own home.
