Evil Wicked Mean Nasty Legally Armed Gun Owner Shoots Innocent Misunderstood Mistreated All is Life Never Got Enough Hugs Thug Wielding A Crowbar to Protect her Children.

This woman ought to have to appear before Diane Feinstein and Michael Bloomberg to decide what punishment she should receive for daring to use a gun to defend herself.

The Blaze:

‘My Wife Is a Hero’: Georgia Mother Shoots Home Intruder Five Times After Being Cornered in Attic
 
A Georgia mother and her two young children are unharmed after a man broke into their house with a crowbar on Friday, cornering them in an attic crawlspace.
According to WSB-TV, the woman was at home with her nine-year-old twins when the doorbell rang. When they didn’t answer, the man reportedly went back to his car and returned with a crowbar.

The mother said she could see the suspect– now identified as Paul Slater– trying to enter the house with the crowbar from her office window. Without hesitation, she grabbed her children, her phone, her gun, and ran upstairs.
One can only imagine the breathless moments after the man broke down the door and began searching the house.

But the man eventually found the family.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” [Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman] told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.
“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.
The woman ran to a neighbor’s home with her children. The intruder attempted to flee in his car but crashed into a wooded area and collapsed in a nearby driveway, Chapman said. [Emphasis added]
Slater– who was taken to the hospital with punctured lungs, a punctured liver, and a punctured stomach– has reportedly been arrested six times since 2008.

WSB-TV continues:
“My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner,” [the woman's husband] Donnie Herman said.
He said he’s thankful for his family’s safety.
“Her life is saved, and her kids’ life is saved, and that’s all I’d like to say,” Herman said.
Commenters have overwhelmingly agreed with the husband thus far– one Savannah Morning News reader even posting a similar story illustrating the importance of the woman’s firearm.
In the other report, after an unarmed woman’s home was robbed, ​she​ was the one who ended up in the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

-------------------------------------------

FWIW: 5 hits from a .38 Special did not bring this guy to a full stop -- he was able to run out of the house and, therefore, would have been able to continue to attack (for a while) if he had chosen to do so. Another reason the AR-15 family is so popular. That doesn't happen with them. Of course, a good Remington 870 in 12 or 20 gauge would have been even more effective. . .

Yeah, after I wrote it I thought a nice SP101 or such would have done the job with one triger pull, two max.

Love that "little" Ruger of mine. . .

Crowbars and claw hammers should be banned. Period. Their use as striking weapons or as implements of general mayhem - especially in games such as Half Life - has gone on for quite long enough. Steel ones should immediately be phased and/or replaced by much safer ones with rounded corners and manufactured from recycled plastics.

In this case it appears pretty clear that the only reason the burglar entered the house was because he didn't think anyone was home. I absolutely agree with her right to shoot him once he was in the house. But this issue really has nothing to do with the gun control debate. There is no movement to take handguns away from homeowners. And many of you sound like nutcases who are itching for an opportunity to kill someone. You've watched too many movies and think it would be cool to shoot the bad guy. Wise up, stop talking like you're so tough, and let's get real with working on reasonable gun control and get guns out of the hands of criminals. And in this case, it's really too bad she didn't simply speak through the door to the man and yell that the police were coming. He apparently had no desire to enter an occupied house.

Whatever else you may be, Anonymous, you certainly present as some sort of knee jerk bleeding heart ‘progressive’ who simply has no idea of what is happening in the real world where, if predators are left unmolested, and are in fact protected and nurtured by the likes of you and yours, then the innocent will suffer and die and in due course cease to exist.
Your mind set really does make me want to vomit – metaphorically speaking, of course.

more fools.

diane fienstien is on rcord as saying confiscation is an option.

governor coumo of new york is on record as saying confiscation is a possible solution.

Illinois just tried to ram a bill through that would have banned and confiscated most of the guns held by the law abiding in Illinois.

so you are poorly informed (and foolish) or a liar.

also gun registration in california led to confiscations in california, and diane fienstiens bill would have bans, and registrations with the goal of eventual confiscation
