Justified...its not just a TV show...

Justified....what local Police are calling the shooting of an armed stalker breaking into a 18 year old mothers house who defended herself and her 3 month old son with a shotgun...check out the story and video from ABC news...


Okla. Woman Shoots, Kills Intruder: 911 Operators Say It's Okay to Shoot

 

OK, I am not seeing where the dispatcher said it was OK...more of a wink-wink-nudge-nudge statement saying she couldn't tell her to do that but for her to do what she had to do to defend her baby...tacit approval I guess..  The poor woman just lost her husband on Christmas day to cancer and on New Years had this lunatic and co-lunatic come a knocking with a 12" hunting knife.   Proof of the lunacy...the guy brought a knife to a gun fight...hmmm...gun in the hands of the good guy gal, knife in the hands of the bad guy...my God we need to ban hunting knives now!!  I dare any of the Brady or Bloomberg idiots to dispute the use of the firearm in this case to defend this young lady and her defenseless child.

 Yeah, I'd kill to protect him if he was my son as well....I bet some anti looks at this and says "but she had a DOG there to protect her!"..guess what idiot, dogs don't use shotguns..

Now I do have some issue with the TV crew having her point the shotgun at them..that breaks a couple of the cardinal rules of gun safety right there...(1) that of treating a gun as if it was always loaded and (2) never pointing a gun at something you wouldn't shoot otherwise. Speaking of that gun it was a side by side shotgun...maybe a coach gun by Stoeger, dunno didn't get a good look at it in the video..hey that Clint Smith fellow was right, they do make good defensive weapons!  Hey, here is out friend the Mad Ogre with a bit about Stoeger coach guns....he makes some good points about "tactical" being taken too far...


And I need to check out that TV show Justified soon as well.....

Oh, and here's another word for you..."Ironic"..that is when George Stephanopoulis on ABC news seems to report favorably on this when he was a senior policy adviser under the first Clinton Administration...you know the one that gave us the wonderful 10 year ban on so-called "assault weapons"...
