Gunfire was exchanged at an Ellenwood Hardees restaurant Saturday morning, according to Clayton County Police.

Police said it happened at about 6:30 a.m. at the location in the 3000 block of Anvil Block Road in Ellenwood.

Kinda early for a robbery. I would have thought scumbag thieves would sleep in.


Investigators said an armed assailant entered the restaurant and announced his intent to rob the place.

At that point, police said, an armed citizen pulled out his weapon. They said both the assailant and the citizen fired at each other.

Hopefully the scumbag was wounded, the more lethally, the better. We are led to believe that a good guy with a gun never stops a bad guy with a gun but if you don’t have your head up your Obama, you see instances like these every day. What would you rather be when an armed scumbag threatens you, a sitting duck or a guy with a fighting chance? I’ll take the latter, thank you.
