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.
Their approach to all this is criminal. The gun was the equalizer here. Why did the guy seek her and the kids out?
If Obama’s gun control was in place we’d be reading about a violent rape and triple murder with a suspect at large.
Liberalism is anti-human.
MIGHT have been? I'd say it would've been darn likely.
That FMJ stuff is all most walmarts carry. It is a lightly loaded round, but at least she had good shot placement. 5 out of 6 COM under high stress is better than most cops can do.
5 out of 6 in a dark crawlspace. Good shooting!
The bad guy escaped and is still alive as of that video. She was out of ammo apparently. What if there was more than one bad guy? She'd be SOL. What if it was a gang? She would have needed what the fiends want to ban!
The video is at the source. It needs to go viral!
She needs some hollowpoint +P loads.
Literally every story I read, where the good guy (gal) shoots, the 2nd perp always runs away. They don't volunteer for lead duty.
Oh, s***-the gun I keep closest is a .38-had no idea it was that survivable. That is fine shooting in the dark, though.
Five rounds in the face and body from a .38 and hes still alive?
If only she'd had my 12 gauge Remington 870 TaC X with a half dozen slugs this story could've had a happy ending.
Maybe she and her husband should consider a semi-auto, more rounds are always good. I have the feeling she could handle it just fine.
did every bullet actually connect with the thug?
Some folks just don’t ‘grok’ a semi-auto, but do just fine with a revolver. Concur on the ammo upgrade.
Check the video at the source. Something happened at my end. I don't have time to watch it again.
Totally agree. A .357mag is hard to beat. Practice with cheap .38 wad cutters and load up at home with .375 Glasser safety slugs or hollow point mags.
"Now, if shed 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."
I've read some good ballistic reviews on the Taurus using high end 3" .410 rounds. I wouldn't want to be on the business end of it.
Or, someone may want to use an FN Five Seven with a laser sight and 20 rounds of high end 5.7 x 28mm ammo:

Your method is exactly the same as mine except that you forgot the snap caps for practicing drawing and trigger control.
I like it! Better than dry firing. The caps will help to overcome any flinching (I'm sure I flinch with my Smith .44 mag).
Yes, it does neverdem. Thanks for this very important ping.
They are going to divide us between those who will register from those who wont
Those who will comply with bullet limits from the handicapped who cannot because they cannot afford to reload every 5 seconds
from mothers who cannot afford using a bolt action and need a semi auto.
Check it out, the age of chivalry is gone. We cannot organize anything against this “POLICE TERROR STATE” by installment.
INterestingly, the only law out there which would be legal to cosmetically (and not functionaly) differentiate the weapons of LE from non LE because of uniform vs. civilian discrimination compliance are not even on the books.
Leftism is defining the uniform on who has a weapon while being in civies.
It is fascism pure and simple, with deceit and terrorism.
You do not know who is the fascist and the cop in your midst.
Thanks for the link.
Actually there is a buck and ball ,410 shotgun round. One large ball and bunch of pellets can ruin your day. Some have three large balls and a bunch of pellets too.
Just bought one on Gunbroker, hope the transfer beats 0bama’s executive order.
Exactly what I have been thinking all along. Police Officers had to start carrying different weapons, because the criminals were out gunning them.
So it is with the civilian population. With all the gangs operating the way they do these days, there is no way that a simple hand gun is sufficient self defense.
5 out of 6 connected, but he ran off, drove away and crashed. Cops caught him and arrested him.
It would be fun to see a photo of his new face. Probably no solid hits. One dead center would have sent him to hell. He was lucky.
Perhaps she needs to upgrade:
Good story and effective, but lets not forget about:
Benghazi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of the WH and our military, Obama’s mysterious campaign funds, Green Engergy boondoggles and failures, the ECONOMY...
Anyhow, hope it works for you and stay safe FRiend.
Most people don’t realize it, but the Taurus Judge really shines when you load it with hot .45 Colt loads like the ones you can get from Cor-Bon or Buffalo Bore. They turn your revolver-with-a-glandular-disorder into a pocket .45-70.
