Politeness builds family values.

Chambers’ wife reportedly told investigators that she happened to be driving by early Wednesday morning and noticed the light on and went to investigate with her gun drawn. The wife is licensed to carry a concealed firearm.

We’re told Detroit Police investigators are trying to get to the bottom of exactly happened next. What we know for sure is that the officer’s reported mistress was shot in the thigh.

Open carry for me, but not for thee.

The polite bring new meaning to “defensive driving.”

According to the sheriff’s office, a Ford Ranger was traveling north on Highway 17 when a semi-truck approached the Ranger from behind.

A report states the truck intentionally struck the Ranger on its side while traveling in the same direction.

Investigators say the truck driver then fired a round into the Ranger’s back drivers side bumper. The Ranger pulled over at the Sunoco gas station and the driver called authorities.

There’s an additional shot of politeness at the link.

Politeness promotes creativity.

A MOTHER and daughter concocted a bizarre tale about a mysterious Arab bursting into their home and firing a gun to explain away a shooting accident, a judge heard yesterday.

Elisabeth Koulouris, 55, and daughter Anne-Marie, 23, had been struggling over the loaded rifle when it went off, the County Court heard yesterday.

The bullet went flying into a neighbour’s bedroom, just missing the two terrified ­occupants.

Spray that politeness around.

Around 2 p.m. Sunday a homeowner was walking in his backyard when he was hit by a bullet fired from a half-mile away. The victim’s family said it was a very scary situation.

(snip)

The homeowner was struck by a bullet in his behind. Sedgwick County Officers said it came from across a farm field behind his backyard. Five men ages 18-20 were shooting several rounds from the other side of the field. They were aiming at a dead stump with no back stop.

More gun nuts too stupid to have guns.

Another polite guy with a gun:

A Texas woman died late Saturday after she was struck by a stray gunshot in the town of Helen in North Georgia.

Police said the bullet came from a small-caliber handgun carried by a 53-year-old man from Jasper, Ga. The gun accidentally discharged, and the bullet traveled across Helen’s tourist-laden Main Street and struck the woman in the side.

More persons packing heat will, no doubt, prevent such things from happening in the future.

Be polite when closing the sale.

One of the men was interested in purchasing a gun, but it wasn’t clear if he was interested in buying the gun being shown or if the gun owner was just showing the other man the weapon, a .40-caliber Smith and Wesson. The two men were standing in the parking lot at the American Nutrition plant, 2813 Wall Ave., as the owner began taking the gun apart, which is when the firearm went off.

The bullet struck the gun owner in the pocket area, and shrapnel from the bullet hitting the pocketknife ricocheted and struck the other man in the hip.

Show politeness to children.

Police said Khaled Elmorsy was cleaning his gun Sunday night when the weapon went off at his condo on North Colony Road.

Hollowell and his girlfriend noticed the bullet hole the next day and called police in a panic.
