    Guns and booze don’t mix. Doesn’t matter if you’re a Brazilian criminal with a full-tilt boogie shooter or Joe Blow with a .410 single shot. The only too bad part of this story is that he took out someone other than himself. Then again, if his friend was also affiliated with PPC, maybe there is no down side.
