Highland woman says she had no choice but to shoot intruder [Obama voted against this self defense]

HIGHLAND  •  Debi Keeney says she last fired her gun 15 years ago, when she took shooting lessons.

The gun was a gift from a friend but it mostly stayed in a side-table drawer, she said, gathering dust. Then, early Sunday morning, Keeney pulled the trigger again — this time, she said, to save her sister’s life.

“I’m very grateful that it fired this morning,” she said Sunday afternoon.

Keeney, 55, said a man forced his way into her apartment in Highland, threw her to the floor and then put her sister, Donna Carlyle, 47, in a choke hold. He demanded money as Carlyle gasped for air.

“All I could see was Donna’s face going blue, like her life was being choked out of her,” said Keeney.

The alleged intruder, 33, was being treated at a hospital Sunday for two gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition, police said. They have not released his name.

This happened in Illinois.

In 2004, when Barack Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

If Obama had his way, this woman's sister would have been choked to death.

Remember to double tap (shots to the head).

Any chance that she can visit his hospital bed and choke him to death? Might save the life of someone else...

(shots to the head).

Guaranteed to be billed as a homicide by most DAs and sent to a Grand Jury.

I wonder if the assailant has Obamacare?

I think he was just looking for his Voter Id. card.

The woman who shot the perp was just carrying out the Conservative version of “Defense of Women Act”, the effective version, as you can see.

Bob,

We have the beginning of a real nice jingle going here. How about;

‘Lower Your Future Taxes, always Double Tap, it’s for the Children’

Good one!

Might I just point out that if one uses ALL the rounds in the cylinder, there is less chance that the DA will use accuracy against you....

She had a chance to do the right thing. Instead, she let him live.

Remember to double tap (shots to the head).

Rule #2: Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.

That’s proper gun control. 2 shots, 2 hits. 2 lives saved. Maybe even more lives saved, because this guy would have just done it to someone else down the road.

Double tap, double tap
It’s the way, it’s a wrap
Single shot, surely not
Must be sure, there is no cure

So don’t forget
In your haste
It’s not a waste
To double tap...
Your tarrrrrr-get!

Double tap, take a nap
Single tap, watch you back
Load em up, stick em up
If he frowns, put him down

So don’t forget
In your haste
It’s not a waste
To double tap...
Your tarrrrrr-get!

The right to self-defense did not come from the government, and so the government can not take it away.

Regardless of whether justified of not, you will feel sad about killing another human being. It is better to be sad than to be dead.
