Thanks 2A: Woman With Gun Stops Crazed Stalker in His Tracks
The Second Amendment in action is a thing of beauty. Few stories rival the badassery of those which feature a good guy with a gun (see Desperate Father Uses a Gun in Hospital Standoff to Save His Son's Life). Or in this case, a good gal with a gun. It's satisfying to see people manage to save the day thanks to their boom-boom stick - especially when they'd be a puddle of brain gravy otherwise. Like this woman who stumbled into a life-or-death situation in her own home...
Goodlettsville police say a woman shot her ex-boyfriend after he was allegedly found hiding under a bed at her home Tuesday afternoon. According to the police, the man entered the home, which was having an alarm system installed, while she went to a neighbor's home for a few minutes. Police said the woman had a restraining order against him and that he had three outstanding violations against that order. The man, whose identity has not been released, suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Gun vs stalker and guess who's winning? Hint: it's not the guy who had to be wheeled to the hospital afterward. Because yes, this situation could've ended much differently. Carol Bowne of New Jersey wanted a gun to protect herself from a violent ex. She had to wait to get her gun. She was killed.
Ever notice how these stories never make an appearance in leftist arguments? That's because they don't exactly fit into the anti-gun narrative. Countless successful firearm-self-defense stories don't make the cut because they contest the idea that guns are inherently evil.
Calling all feminists. I have a bone to pick with you, and it's not about your lack of hygiene this time. You guys are awfully silent on this issue. Shouldn't a strong, independent woman like this be celebrated? She handled business... Thanks to
her feminist bookclub membership the heat she was packing. Can't forget that tidbit. Had there not been a gun, methinks this scenario would have ended much differently. That's guns for you: empowering women one incapacitated stalker at a time. One might even say guns are the solution to "rape culture" wouldn't you agree, feminists?
Personally, I love stories like this. It's what makes the Second Amendment great: being able to protect yourself (and your rights) when fit hits the shan. Even if you're physically incapable (see 65-year-old Granny Shoots Mugger). Quite different than the picture leftists paint when it comes to talking guns. Then again, they couldn't tell the difference between a grenade launcher and flare gun. Good thing we have nifty things like facts to help us out when it comes to deciding if the Second Amendment is really all that necessary.
