Thug Playing Knockout Game Targets Wrong Michigan Man – Is Shot Twice

Guest Post by Mara Zebest

Feel Good Story of the Day: A Lansing, Michigan man with a concealed weapons permit uses his gun to shoot the “knockout game” attacker. The attacker survives two gun shot wounds and promptly landed in jail.

It was only a matter of time until a knockout attacker tangled with an armed citizen. Of course Liberals will tell you that the concept of a “good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun” is a myth (as in this promotion to get Libs to push gun-control at Thanksgiving). So if gun-control works so well, then why are there constant headlines like this one—15 shot in one typical Chicago night—out of strict gun-control Chicago?

WILX News 10 reports the following:

A game called “Point-em-out, Knock-em-out” has made it’s way to Lansing, and it’s exactly how it sounds. The game consists of someone being randomly targeted, then attacked.

It’s a game that’s been growing with popularity on the internet, with teenagers filming themselves punching unsuspecting victims. Lansing had it’s first case of the game brought to light this summer, but it’s possible it’s been happening under the radar for months.

On February 26th a man waiting for his six-year-old daughter to to dropped off from school had no idea he would be the city’s first reported victim.

“I saw the van circle twice and the second time three came out. I didn’t suspect anything. I hadn’t any enemies, or any reason to believe they would be looking to do anything to me.”

We are not revealing the victim’s identity for his protection.

The victim was attacked by 17-year-old Marvell Weaver. But Weaver did more than try to knock his victim out, he tried to do it with a taser. Luckily for the victim, the taser didn’t work and he was able to protect himself with his concealed-carry .40 caliber pistol.

“He shoved something into my side. I wasn’t sure what it was. It had some force to it. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife or a gun,” said the victim.

Weaver was shot twice, in the leg and an inch away from his spine. He’s been sentenced to a year in jail for the attack, but he admits he’s getting off easy.

“It was just a lesson learned. I wish I hadn’t played the game at all,” said Weaver.

But Weaver say’s this wasn’t the first time he’d played it. Before he was caught, he and his friends had attacked random people on several occasions. […]

“What they tried to do to me wouldn’t have been a joke if they would’ve succeeded. My child would’ve been left with the aftermath of seeing her father in any type of way I would’ve been left,” said Weaver’s victim.

If more citizens would use their 2nd amendment right to take on the personal responsibility to do whatever it takes to prevent becoming a victim, these knockout stories might quickly come to a halt. To quote another cliché, “An armed society is a polite society.”
