Don't Bring a Toy to a Gunfight

Does this guy qualify for the Darwin Award? No, he would have had to die for that. Intruder Shot By Homeowner Was Carrying Toy Gun - Gothamist
After being woken by loud noises in his Mill Basin, Brooklyn home around 2 a.m. yesterday morning, 62-year-old Larry Goldstein took his .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver to investigate what was happening. He discovered two intruders in his kitchen, and since they appeared to be armed, Goldstein fired, hitting one of the men three times while the other fled. And it turned out the intruders were carrying a toy pistol and toy machine gun. A police official told the Wall Street Journal the toys "were very realistic looking... If someone pointed them at you, you would light them up too."
Stupid criminals
