We all remember that scene from “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” The experienced swordsman in the bazar who likely spent a lifetime mastering his craft attempts to intimidate Indiana Jones with his sophisticated sword-wielding.
In a demonstration juxtaposing the foolishness of bringing a knife to a gunsfight, Indiana pulls his Webley revolver and shoots the man dead with little ado before promptly and nonchalantly returning to his business.
It seems that an Indiana man must’ve missed that point as he is now in critical condition after being shot six times while trying to assault a man and his wife with nunchucks.
Nunchaku, also called nunchucks, are ancient weapons often associated with ninjas and martial artists. They can be incredibly deadly.
A man and his ex-wife reportedly got into a heated argument over a dispute over a cell phone bill. The ex-husband left, but returned to the house in a rage with nunchucks.
The well-armed new husband, David Gregory, sat on his porch as the enraged man pulled up.
“I’m sitting here at the back patio,” Gregory told WISH. “My wife is sitting here. My dog starts barking. I see his car pull up.”
“My thoughts were, ‘he’s going to try and beat me up or kill me with these nunchucks then go take it out on my wife.’”
“I reached for my gun,” Gregory explained. “He gets out of his car, in a rage. You could see it in his eyes.”
Gregory’s wife claimed that both of their lives were in danger. “If he could’ve got Dave, he would’ve definitely came after me no doubt,” she said.
Evidently, the man was unfazed by the promise of getting shot.
“I told him he’s an idiot,” Gregory replayed. “I pointed my gun at him. He kept making progress toward me, swinging his nunchucks and that’s when I shot him.”
Gregory shot him six times. The husband and wife were unharmed. Indy would be proud.
The moral of this story should be fairly clear: don’t go writing checks your ass can’t cash.
Oh, and arm yourself. It’s a crazy world and you never know when a nutjob will mean you or your family harm.
