After a hiatus, we are back, and how!

Write a 500-word tale with the words “It is not who fired the shot but who paid for the bullet” included in your story.

The prompt sentence should be added verbatim and the count of the words obviously will include the prompt sentence. It can be a part of a larger sentence, as a dialogue, for example.
