Skip to comments.New Twist in Gun Control Debate: Mom Runs Out of Bullets Defending Kids from Criminal
Posted on 01/09/2013 2:19:56 PM PST by neverdem
Mom shot 6 time ex-convict intruder with all the bullets of her 38, yet he was still able to get up after she ran out of bullets. What if it was more than one intruder? Maybe limiting ammunition capacity is actually better for the criminals and not their victims after all...

How timely? Bismarck was right. Providence strikes again!
The communists, er, democrats are on the wrong side once again, way out there on the wrong side.
All of these laws are designed to protect the criminals ( er, Democrats)
He dodged some deadly hits but I bet he had to throw away his pants and undies.
certainly looks that way
You wouldn’t happen to have a news link about that robbery, would you?
She inadvertently followed two of the common rules for gun fighting. One rule says you need to create a wall of lead between you and the aggressor. The other rule she followed says that if your aggressors disarm you and use your gun against you it’s only to beat you with because it’s empty.
She needed a black rifle.
We should pass legislation requiring that each US citizen acquire one.
I wrote in comment# 1: "Go to the source for the under 10 minute video."
There are standard practice rounds, and there are the really special lethal ones used for practical applications....
Regardless, she did what she had to do, and she and her children survived.
Thank you tons.
Adding keyword, “armedcitizen,” to this thread.
She really needed much more lethal ammo. I bet it was some of the cheap ball ammo that’s mostly good for target shooting. Also, from some of the other reports I’ve read, it looks like the perp had done some time, meaning he was probably rock hard. All the more reason for a larger caliber pistol, more cartridges, and stronger ammo.
I love upbeat, good news stories like this. Five rounds in the face and body from a .38 and he’s still alive?
5 out of 6 in a dark crawlspace. Good shooting!
The thing about revolvers is that they don’t jam. You only get six shots, but they don’t jam.
Now, if she’d have had a Taurus Judge with .410 rounds in there, this story would have had that warm ‘awww’ bit at the end that the perp died from the 28 pellets embedded in his face and body.
The left deliberately leaves guns in the hands of violent criminals while taking them from the hands of honest, law-abiding non-violent people.
Gun Control creates more victims for the illegal to prey on.
An armed society is a polite society
All the keyboard commandos can call for more deadly ammo, pipsqueak .410 shot gun loads etc. but bottom line is; a human is hard to kill, especially if they are full of fight and there is a lot of space around the critical points in a head shot. The lady did exceedingly well.
Yes she did. That doesn't alter the fact, though, that the perp was still mobile after being shot 5 times. Had there been a second perp, the lady might have been in deep trouble. I won't say she needs more range time. Her accuracy was great. But she really does need to upgrade the ammo. Hollowpoints, at the very least. And it might not have hurt to go to a semi-auto with a bigger magazine capacity.
