Guns Don’t Kill People, Hole Punches Do

06_Single_Hole_Punch.jpgCan’t afford a gun or a knife? Stop by Staples before your next robbery attempt:

Two robbers beat an 18-year-old with a three-hole paper puncher after breaking into his home Saturday night in the 400 block of Northeast 15th Court, police said. The teen, whose name was not released, told police he answered a knock at his door and two robbers wearing masks and carrying a black gun forced their way inside shortly before 11:45 p.m.
The robbers punched, kicked and struck him with the hole puncher while demanding money, he told police. The assailants took cash from his wallet and left in an unknown direction.

Well, at least they didn’t punch holes in him.

And oh yeah: Florida.

I'm surprised the kid is OK. Those 3-hole punches are metal and heavy and a swing of one of those things to just the right part of the head could probably kill you.

Of course it was in Florida, so the burglars were probably too dumb to invest in a quality 3-hole punch. Which if they had a gun, why did they need the office supplies? Wait- Florida- never mind.
