    NC woman shot with TP

    DEFINATELY GETS THE "BAD HUSBAND OF THE YEAR" AWARD:

    REIDSVILLE, NC - A man has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon after sheriff's officials say he shot his wife earlier this week.

    The Reidsville man, however, tells police that he loaded his pistol with toilet paper instead of a bullet, according to WFMY-TV.

    The incident happened Monday at 1:30 am when deputies were called to the scene of a shooting in Reidsville County on Garrison Road.

    Authorities found a woman, Darlene Pinnix, on her bed suffering from severe pain, the TV station reported.

    Pinnix told authorities that when she arrived home earlier her husband seemed agitated. As she laid down on the bed in their bedroom, she told authorities that her husband held a gun to her head and demanded she get up.

    She told authorities that he then shot her in the back.

    The husband, Lonnie Pinnix, told authorities that he loaded the pistol with toilet paper instead of a bullet and shot his wife when she would not leave, WFMY reported.

    WXII-TV in Winston-Salem reported that the gun used in the shooting was a "black powder pistol."

    Authorities charged Lonnie Irvin Pinnix, 38, of Reidsville with assault with a deadly weapon and set his bond at $1,000.

    Assault with a deadly weapon = $1k bond?????

    I don't bother with pragmatic statistics while discussing my constitutional rights. The issue is far less complex, to me. Free men should be able to act like free men.

    The re-enactors around here load their rifles with the black powder and then put about 20 grains of cream-of-wheat on the charge to seat it. Looks just like the real thing when it's fired. The issue with TP is you end up with a wad of smoldering TP coming out the muzzle and setting the woods on fire, plus it isn't look cool for the spectators when some kid gets smacked in the eye with a piece of flaming TP.
