If a bunch of six foot tall, young guys break into your house… you’re going to have a bad time. It’s just not a party. Especially if you’re a petite lady. Nature has stacked the odds, so to speak – and they’re not in your favor. That is, unless you have a gun. It’s the great equalizer (see BADASS: 80-Year-Old Woman Protects Family by Shooting Home Invader). The video below shows just that, as a woman sends 3 armed robbers running after she opened fire…
Last week Friday, three men kicked in an Atlanta, Georgia suburb home around 4 a.m. The first burglar was met by a female homeowner who reached for her firearm. The woman fatally shot the initial intruder, 28-year-old Antonio Leaks, in the torso. The other two suspects returned fire before fleeing the scene.
“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” [Police] said.
Police are relying on the surveillance video to identify and apprehend the two men who remain at large. Both men are described as African American, between 20 and 30 and around six feet tall.
Turns out those reprobates picked the wrong house to rob. The little lass came flying out of her bedroom like banshee. It was rather effective.
The great equalizer.
Notice something here? Beside the enormous gun. The criminals high-tailed it out of there faster than you could say “Bam bam bam!” Clearly they weren’t expecting someone to point a gun at them. They also weren’t expecting her to chase them down with it. But imagine if it were common for a homeowner to be armed and ready? Methinks some criminals would be less likely to break in. For instance, these guys? They didn’t seem to be looking for a shootout, even though they brought a gun.
Another thing worth noticing with these stories? There seems to be somebody who insists she should’ve waited for the cops instead of shooting the criminals. Because as it turns out, one guy died, which is a bummer in the summer, sure. I mean it sucks his parents had such a crappy kid who ran around criming it up. But for an armed robber’s death? Few tears are shed.
What anti-gun activists ignore is these forfeited their right to life when they Donkey Kong smashed their way through someone’s door with guns blazing. I get the sneaking suspicion this gal could have ended up a lot more dead had she opted to sit this one out and wait for help. That’s what makes the Second Amendment super duper nifty. It helps law abiding citizens defend themselves when the caca hits the fan.
