Happy Dance Time

This joyous news out of Alabama.  It seems that a goblin came into a Dollar Store, threatened to shoot everyone, then started herding them into a break room.  A brave citizen decided he had gone far enough, drew his firearm and shot the goblin in the chest.
Dallas County Sheriff Harris Huffman Jr. told WSFA-TV that the gunman held a cashier and customer at gunpoint, forcing them toward a break room area. It was at this point that the customer reportedly drew his firearm and shot the suspect one time in the chest. The entire incident took less than five minutes, police say.
The gunman was pronounced dead on the scene.
The sheriff said the customer is not currently facing any charges over the shooting death, however, investigators are working to confirm he had a valid concealed carry permit. Open carry is legal in Alabama, but a permit is required to carry a concealed handgun.
That's all we need to know about that.  A citizen stopped what might have been a terrible tragedy, and one less goblin is wandering the streets.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going outside to do my Happy Dance.
