Due to stuff that's been happening at the house where I work (ADT security system being installed today), I had a bit of a nightmare last night.
In it a man approached the house and I told him to stop and leave. He didn't. He broke through the barricade and walked right up to me.
I dialed 911 but the Sheriff refused to come to the house (based on the reality of what's going on at the house and the reason we're getting the security system installed).
I then put my hand in my pocket and gripped my .22 magnum revolver (remember - this is just a dream). I pulled back the hammer and prepared to pull the weapon from my pocket. In my dream the guy was laughing.
I said, "I don't fire warning shots. The first shot I fire will be at your d*ck!"
My dream ended there.
Screw that guy. I hope she has a strong family/friend group that will make her get over this ASAP.It is sad that trial lawyers,the ACLU, liberalism et al have screwed us all into fearing trial lawyers,the ACLU and liberalism. She faced perceived punishment or imminent death. Glad she chose her life over death.She has allies.
No law no matter how well crafted by the hand of men (or women for that matter) could have prevented this criminal from breaking into this woman's home.
A few bullets however mitigated the situation and prevented it from getting worse.
FTLOG... please remember this.
If Barack and Joe had their way, this lady would be dead! Play this tape in every legislative body that trys to steal our 2nd Amendment!
It is very sad that a another human was shot in the head. Having siad that, he made the choice to attack her. She properly defended herself.
She did the right thing and it is the attacker's fault he got shot. It is a sad thing that he made her blow a hole through his brains. Now she must deal with that trauma.
You can hear how distraught she was, it is never an easy thing to shoot someone in the
head. I hope she recovers from this event that was forced on her.
I heard her voice clearly the entire time, yet did NOT hear a gun shot... even a .22 shot is louder than a voice... not sure this is even legit... lol
I heard her voice very clearly the entire time, but did NOT hear a gun shot... I'm wondering if this is even legit... even a .22 shot is louder than a voice... lol
Liberal Gun Control:
The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.
According to the official "Manifesto of Liberal Victimization", this woman should be dead, because liberal radicals are not happy until everyone is a VICTIM AND ALL VICTIMS ARE DEAD!
Rid the world of liberalism, and the world can live in peace again.
Another happy ending... so sad that she will be scarred by this horrible event.
The world is a better place now that another monster is slain.
Wonder if Rand Paul can play this in his next filibuster. Probably will be the only way its going to get heard in congress. Just reading the transcript doesn't have the same effect.
Still the only way to stop the bad guys with guns is with good guys with guns. Anything other is "feel good" BS. Ask this lady is it better to "feel good" or alive.
This is an all too frequent occurrence. My best friend was married to one of these psychos. He locked her in the trunk once and was driving her to God knows where. She got out when he stopped at a convenience store and she pushed in the back seat and ran away. Once he tried to drown her in the tub and he beat her regularly. She called the cops all the time-they did nothing. She finally moved out and 10 years later he is still stalking her despite a restraining order which is worthless. He is a big exec at a well known company. These men all protect each other. Her parents and even a pastor advised her to stay w him. I am the only person who has validated her fears and I finally got her to get counseling. I am hoping it will help her to see she is drawing these same types of men to her and to stop it!
God has a commandment against adultery. However, God has the perfect justice. He knows the heart and intention of each person. If she attracts the wrong men to herself, she needs to recognize and resolve that issue first. She's not alone. It happens to a very high percentage of people. God said separation was the result of hard hearts. Men are affected, also. I remember overhearing the bridesmaids of a bride-to-be tell her "I hope you will have a happy married life", and the response was, "I do too, but if I don't I'll just divorce him". What a way to start a married life. I wondered if the man would want to marry her , that day, if he knew she had said that. I don't know, to this day, what happened to their marriage. Usually, the lack of Christian upbringing is the reason for hardening of hearts in so many ways---the 'what's in it for me' mentality. Let's just say a good upbringing of Christian teachings would, at least, be helpful in discerning the intentions of someone else.
Her parents and the pastor were wrong.The scripture is explicit in it's command to husbands to 'Love their wives"!Beating and abusing your wife is not love and I am sure the Lord would accept her reason for divorce as legitimate.

Good work ma'am! Ya' done real good.
Why didn't she just tell him to stop? Oh wait she did....funny how it didn't deter him at all. Thankfully she had a weapon to defend herself with.
How many liberals would hear that tape and say..."Having a gun didn't protect her" or lament the loss of life of this dirtbag?
What did it take before the police arrived on the scene? Five, six minutes? She took care of the situation in a matter of seconds, because of her wanting not to be the victim.
"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. Benjamin Franklin"
This woman chose not to give up her essential liberty for the police to provide her temporary safety and she lives another day.
Scarred none the less because of the life that was taken, but after time will resolve in her soul and with God that she was placed into the situation not of her making. I sincerely believe that God will reconcile in her heart and soul that she did the right thing.
HOLY CRAP! This piece is over 5 years old.
You bring up a good point, but I think Marty's point was to slam us because it was 5 years old. It doesn't matter, though, because it is still a relevant issue.
Here's a great first story to read. CCW man in LA saves cop w/ .45, police dept. stops short of saying he saved cop's life. http://www.wafb.com/Global/story.asp?S=4527526
What I find interesting is that in January of 2008, NBC would put this story out, but today it would be completely ignored as they follow the lead of Obama's White House.
It shows how far they have fallen in 5 short years.
Not only is it still a relevant issue, but more info. is always a good thing (especially for curious minds--I always want to know more of the details!).
I am waiting for Barack Hussein Obama's comments and lessons from Shotgun Joe on how to best handle these situations.
Most of you said what I was thinking, so I won't try to be more clever. But one thing that's been on my mind lately is the notion that people end up greatly traumatized because they had to kill in self defense. This is something society keeps programming people with, through the media and entertainment. It doesn't have to be this way.
I'm sure it's a major whack to the brain to know you killed another human. But I promise you, it's the right response to an attacker. Every time. Only the biggest, strongest, most badass men in the world can afford to "go easy" on a perp. The rest of us must go full-scale "mother bear" on the bad guys (when we can't run away safely) or we're taking too big a risk on our family's behalf that we'll lose the confrontation.
Remember that guy who took 5 or seven 9mm shots and kept coming at the lady hiding with her son? That's reality.
If you had to kill in self defense, you did the right thing. It isn't your fault. We have your back.
You mentioned my favorite 911 call K-Bob, the mom with the twins hiding from the man with the crowbar! "Shoot him, shoot him again, shoot him!" 5 out of 6 from the revolver hit him in vital organs, yet he was able to go back downstairs, get in the car and drive away. What if he had picked up that crowbar when her gun was empty? Thankfully he didn't. Funny, haven't heard if he's dead yet....he was on life support at our cost I'm sure.
She'll have to look at in terms of good and evil with the intruder being the evil. She did what was required, defeated the evil and that's all. The perp stop being a human the second he began to desire to do harm to another for the purpose of self gratification.
Did she try peeing on herself first? Or vomiting? How about telling him she had an STD? No?
Good for her. She did EXACTLY the right thing...and who knows how many OTHER women's lives she may have saved from this dirtbag?
Liberals are Evil and Irrational. They suffer from some kind of severe mental disorder. What sane human being would dream of depriving a woman of the ability to defend herself? Yet that is their goal. In England, a farmer who had been robbed 7 times by the same gang and savagely beaten shot and killed one of his attackers the 8th time. HE was put on trial for murder, for defending his own life in his own home! Liberals are Evil and Irrational. They are the destroyers of civilization and all that's good. They are the friends of criminals, murderers, rapists, tyrants and dictators.
Absolutely. We all know what the normal response to attackers should be, by those in authority; "You brought this on to yourself. You shouldn't have done what you did. There are consequences for our actions. What would YOU have done, Mr Attacker, if what you did had been done to you? It's time you put yourself in your victims' shoes.
Would you like it and think justice was served, if you were charged for defending yourself, especially for the 8th time?".
The lady that defended herself with a pistol was very lucky she had armed herself. The 911 woman has learned the reality of life one more time. It wasn't the victims' first choice to have to shoot the intruder. We can hear the after effects in her emotional voice. As time goes by, she will realize how strong she was, not to be so frightened to have frozen in her attempt to defend herself, and how close it was that she survived. God bless her.
