Love the Monday-morning quarterbacking by some of you really, really smart people.

There's nothing wrong with protecting yourself/family but who goes for the head first?


A panicked stricken person? I mean really....neither you or I were there nor do we know how we would have reacted under that particular situation.


how did she shot him 5 times from point blank and still have him able to get "away"
shes not that great a shot.
lucky she didnt hit someone else


Who else would she have hit in her house? The twins were with her...it isn't as if she shot in all directions. I think 4 out of 5 shots to the face is a pretty good group anyway.

Head shots in a panic is natural. Shooting the body ensures you hit vital parts but the intruder could have a bullet proof vest. Close range natural to point at the face.

Who else could she have hit? The pizza delivery girl across the street?

cops have extensive training and backup and bullet proof vests. They are paid to put their lives on the line. This woman is a citizen with children in the house. It's not even nearly the same situation. Shoot to kill is the best solution.


which is why this anti 2nd amendment issue is absolutely ludicrous. suppose she was forced to turn the .38 in? we'd have one woman and several dead children..

The US isn't going to ban firearms. Not sure where this silliness is coming from, but those who think that could happen are living in a fantasy land.

Whether she had time to warn him to back off or not is irrelevant. There's no law that says one must first politely warn someone that is about to mame, rape or kill you to kindly leave you alone before you inflict harm.

Why does society always want to turn responsibility on to anyone other than who it belongs? The man who broke in decided to do so. The man who searched for the family decided to do so. ANY action the wife or kids performed at that point are 100% justified. The only one responsible for his/her actions here is the man as it was his actions and decisions which created the event and caused the reactions of others. She owes no one any explanation on why she reacted in the way she did. And, we should not question her actions, rather his.


Oh and I agree with ya but are you certain he was there to do them harm? Were you there?

Not going to happen. Going to be stricter laws but the fed knows better than to try and take guns away.

Still, what that woman did was overkill.


overkill? is that really the word you want to choose or are you self-trolling?

Its amazing seeing the idiotic arguments being used by the pro-gun people. The guy implying it was a first step to the slaughter of american citizens was just...inbred.

I never understand the hunting thing either, why is it considered so masculine...hiding in a bush and shooting an animal minding its own business. Maybe they use fake masculinity to make up for intelligence in the south..but wow...wrestle it with your bear hands if you wanna be a man, then you only need a knife.

So let me get this straight...some guy crowbars his way into a house and some of you are more worried about why the person who lived in the house (with children) aimed for the face instead of presumably the hands or feet? Perhaps she ought to be jailed as a result of her recklessness?

Somebody said "monday morning quarterbacks" earlier. I'll call it "sluggish of mind". Complete lack of logic from some posters on this forum.

Which is it? Wrestle with your bear bare hands or use a knife? And you're questioning the intelligence in the south? :rolleyes:

Many people (men and women) hunt and eat what they kill. Venison is delicious, as is boar, pheasant, duck, moose and elk, etc. Masculinity has nothing to do with it. People in isolated areas rely on hunting to provide for themselves and their family, meat can be very expensive. Wildlife conservation serves multiple purposes, protecting animals and their environment, while still allowing for hunting.

Absolutely irrelevant if he was there to do harm or not.
If she reasonably believed there was a threat to the livesof, or threat of great boldily injury to her or the children, then she had every right in the world to use as much force as it takes to stop the threat. Apparently thats 5 bullets to the head/neck in this case.

Now that is an assumption you have nothing to back up with.

Could happen, has happened.

All you anti-gun people in this thread are just angry at the fact that this thread topic is the truth. Guns stop crimes and prevents them because a criminal wont attack you if he has to worry about being killed. The woman successfully saved her and her family's lives and you have the nerve to judge her!? You all are just crazy.

also don't forget that when stories like this come out it likely prevents thousands of additional crimes just for fear of the possibility of a gun being in the house.
