Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder (GA) ^ | 01/04/2012 |

Posted on 01/05/2013 6:29:28 AM PST by aimhigh

LOGANVILLE, Ga. —A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

But the man eventually found the family. "The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,"

He said if Slater survives the night, doctors will try to operate in the morning to repair the damage

I hope the surgeon who operates is blind and operates with a chain saw.

I’ve loaded DRT ammo in my home defense pistols....Dynamic Research Technologies. Hollow point copper jacketed around a highly compressed amount of non-lead powder.

I’ve seen pictures of what happens to ‘mean’ when these things hit. It is utterly nasty. A big gaping bleeding hole, and no fragements for a doctor to remove to speak of. The compressed powder disperses thoughout the wound.

Another good thing; It’s ECO-FRIENDLY !!!! Haha...

Even on 2nd read, my 1st reply stands and now includes “terrible writing skills”.

Nice. Somehow the rest of us recognized it as sarcasm upon the first read. Perhaps the fault lies with your "terrible reading comprehension skills."

I cannot fault this woman one bit. But dang, she needs a bigger gun!

“Slater was shot in the face and neck... and suffers from punctured lungs, a punctured liver and a punctured stomach.”

Holy macanarsels, Margaret!

If the surgeons manage to patch up Humpty Dumpty, there, they need to get the Dr. Frankenstein award for truly impressive surgery.

DRT in the medical community stands for dead right there-appropriate don’t you think?

That’s what I was thinking; she was using target practice bullets.

I just sent this to Feinstein by email...

Senator Feinstein: Please read this report and then be honest and tell the whole country that this woman didn’t need a gun to defend herself and her children. She deserved to own a gun to protect her family just as you did when your life was threatened. What on earth made you think you were any different from the millions of other people in this country who need to protect themselves from criminals?

I’ll be interested in learning your answer to that question. A neighbor in our county who shot and killed an intruder in her home in the spring of 2011 would also like an answer to that simple question. She was in her shower when she was attacked by an intruder and had presence of mind enough to grab a gun and empty it into the creep! What makes anyone’s life worth less than yours?

...They don’t all have to be dead.

The dead don't sue. Nor do they return upon release.

Liberals hate this. In the liberal “mind” the “oppressed downtrodden” criminal should be able to just waltz in and take whatever is “rightfully” his.

“God bless this woman. I hope she understands that she was defending her family and I pray she has no problems from her actions”

Her husband is darn proud of her. He called her a hero on last night’s local news.

***But I believe a.38 is a revolver. 6 chambers, no magazine.***

So? They were the hot items to ban back in the 1970s. They will be hot again if a AW ban passes.

It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles are just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.

Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.

John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.

Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.

George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl revolver.

Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.

Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.

Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 revolver.

What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban them.

“Then we can see if he changes, having been shot within inches of his life.”

My guess is that he will sue her—he’s a member of the entitlement, obamaphone club and had been released from prison not long ago.

Not necessarily target rounds. Each shooting is unique. There are reports of criminals soaking up a dozen police 9mm hollow point rounds and still fighting. There are also documented cases of perps being shot in the head with a 45 Auto and still being a threat, as well as some taking at least one round of 12 ga 00 buck center of mass and still shooting back.

My home defense round is a 38sp wadcutter loaded to max 38 sp velocity. It will do the job.

This woman was trying to protect herself and her children, she did just fine, mission accomplished.

“This women could have easily called the police and had them take care of this instead of brandishing a dangerous firearm, which only made the house a target to start! Way to turn an otherwise safe home into a wild west shootout!”

You think like me. I would have posted something very similar on their site, if possible. I also would have called her an idiot for being home during the day without an armed guard.

People need to better understand the gun-grabbers.
