It a tale as old as time. Escaped inmate breaks into woman’s house. Woman has a gun. Escaped inmate gets all swiss cheesed up.
This is usually where the “good guy with a gun” debate starts. Even though, there’s not much of a debate (see Legal Gun-Owning Harvard Graduate Evicted Over Legally Owned Guns and On Trend: Conservative Women Pose with their Guns). Sheriff Rick Clark’s comments show why there isn’t.
“This is the shining example of what this lady did, took the time to get her [concealed weapons permit] and set herself up to be able to protect herself and not be harmed, killed or raped or whatever,” Clark said at a news conference.
The sheriff’s office did not charge the woman; Clark said investigators determined that she faced an imminent threat and had no escape route because of the size and layout of the house.
“This was a big guy,” Clark said. “If she didn’t have a weapon, there’s no telling what would have happened. But she stopped the crime. She solved the crime and came out a winner.”
Someone needs to turn that into a song.
There was no time for this woman to call 911. She didn’t know what the inmate was going to do. As soon as he forcefully crossed the threshold of her doorway, he forfeit all rights to life. The woman was right to deliver him to his Creator via a lead projectile. Go in peace to screw with people no more.
Someone buy this woman all the wine. Then pass this story along to all those virtue signaling dinguses who get high on their gun hatred.
