Initially I wasn’t sure I was going to do a post on this since Bitter already touched on it. Then the wife emailed it to me and I watched this video and busted out laughing at the end. If this is in your RSS, for some reason Google Reader won’t embed the video.
You’re killing me smalls! Let me get this straight, you helped your buddy break into the house of the girl he was stalking, he got shot, and you called 911!? If there’s a dumb criminal of the year award, he’s definitely a finalist.
Serious props to the young lady for defending herself and her child. I supposed that Joan Peterson would have preferred that she wait to shoot until the intent was perfectly known and the woman’s body going to room temperature instead of the assailant. Maybe it was just a normal armed robber?
The bottom line is this is why I carry, even at home. When I get dressed in the morning, that includes putting on my firearm. Bad people exist in the world and they don’t call ahead when they plan on doing bad things. If you don’t want to listen to me telling you to leave with my mouth, individually dispensing 230 Grain packages of hot lead will convince you leaving is the better option. The bad news is at that point you’re going to be leaving the corporeal world.
