Default "My Wife Is a Hero"

This is why you need 15 and 20 round magazines. This guy should be dead.

‘My Wife Is a Hero’: Georgia Mother Shoots Home Intruder Five Times After Being Cornered in Attic | Video | TheBlaze.com

Quote:
“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.

Just think if this was in some Eurotrash country like the UK the media there would demonize the woman as some hateful vigilante who shot some poor innocent scamp.

Its kind of funny that no matter how many times these stories occur the media hardly gives them any mention, they don't seem to want to make the hero a instant celebrity,They don't mention the hero's firearm,ammo capacity of their magazine,where or how much ammo they got and they aren't giving a soap box to someone arguing that we need less gun control or that we need to loosen anti-2nd amendment laws. But if someone uses a firearm to commit mass murder then suddenly the media cares about the person who uses the firearm, the media will tell you what type of firearm they used and magazine capacity, the media will tell you the loser's suicide note or what the gist of it says, the media will interview the victims stupid ass questions like how are you doing or are you mad at the shooter, the media will even a give a soap box to anti-2nd amendment loons.

We have got much closer to being eurotrash in the last four years.

A self defense story goes counter to what the media wants the story to be. They don't like that.

It's a hard call.

You have the rare stories like this vs the rare incidences of killers with mega magazines slaughtering 26 people.

Both are rare.

So...what do you choose?

Me - I vote for limiting high capacity magazines at this point. It's one life vs 26.

That's about the extent of gun control changes I support.

As for Eurotrash? I think those that use those terms are pretty trashy too.

Rare stories about self defense with a weapon? The only reason you think it rare is because the media withhold that information for the most part. People defend themselves daily around the country with guns, but that doesn't fit their gun control agenda so they don't report it.

The UK would lock the woman up for defending herself and I do call that trashy. But you want to jump on the PC bandwagon and pretend your above all that.

Then again, there are people who live in Kumbayah Land who don't believe there will ever ever ever come a time when one is attacked by 26 or more ass wipes.

Then again, there are those folks firmly convinced they'll be attacked by 26 or more ass wipes...

They're coming to take me away,
Haha, they're coming to take me away,
Ho ho, hee hee, ha ha,
To the funny farm
Where Life is Beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see
Those Nice Young Men
In their Clean White Coats
And they're coming to take me AWAY,
HA HAAAAA

I have the original 45 record. If you get a hold of it, play the reverse. It's the same song played in reverse. It's very mind-opening.

I have the little yellow ones on most of my records, plus two spindle adapters. It would take a little touch and go to make a suitable adapter from a piece of plastic, but it can be done.
