    CA - Police: La-Z-Boy Saves Man From Wife's Bullet

    WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- No wonder men seem to like their comfy chairs.

    Norman Kamp, 57, has a good reason to stay in his La-Z-Boy chair. It may have saved his life.

    Authorities in Northern California report Kamp's wife tried to shoot him in the head, by firing through the back of his easy chair. But the sturdy recliner absorbed most of the bullet's impact and left Kamp virtually unscathed.

    Norman Kamp stood up from his chair, followed his wife into the kitchen and declared, "You shot me," according to deputies in Contra Costa County.

    Jan Kamp, 58, fired a second shot at her husband, but missed, police said. He retreated to a neighbor's where he called 911.

    I saw this earlier today and couldn't help but wonder if that comfy La-Z-Boy isn't what drove his wife to shoot him in the first place!

    Not that there's EVER an excuse to shoot anyone.
