I nominate the 82-year-old for the Bad-Ass-of-the-Week award.

Walking to the men, gun in hand, Harper said, he yelled, "I'm an excellent shot and can shoot out your eyes at 60 paces." He fired once at the driver's side front tire and stopped about 6 feet in front of the truck.

"I said, If it moves toward me, the driver gets one right between the eyes,' " he said. After that, he added, "they didn't give me much guff."

His son got back his knife.

"But I'm still waiting for my gun," Harper said. "They say it's evidence."

good thing he doesn't live in Mass... the news would condemn him as a menace, the cops would arrest and prosecute him, and the criminals would get off with an "i'm sorry" from the DA lol
