Lawful Guns Save Lives

From WSBTV News in Atlanta, Georgia;

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,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.

Ouch, that’s gonna leave a mark.

Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri learned from Chapman late Friday night that slater has been placed on a ventilator and suffers from punctured lungs, a punctured liver and a punctured stomach.

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

Chapman said Slater has four exit wounds.

Slater is currently being charged with burglary.

Well, if Slater survives, he’ll have a story to tell his new cellmate.

Guns in the hands of lawful gun owners do save lives…not so much for the stupid criminals, though.

  1. Obviously, I’m delighted she and her kids lived.
    The scary part?
    She hit the dude 5 out of 6 times…and the guy was still moving.

    So, I have a question or two for our more Progressive friends:

    -What if she didn’t hit him 5 out of 6?
    -What if she only hit 3 out of 6?
    -What then?
    -Gee, having a BIGGER CLIP SURE WOULD BE HANDY…..don’t ya’ think?
    -Especially if there were, say, ..TWO intruders?
    -Or even THREE?

    Just askin’…..

  2. A thought here….if 5 rounds of .38, center mass, at close range, didn’t bring this guy FULLY down then either he is one tough SOB or a .38 is no better than a BB gun, time to trade it in for something with a bit more umph. Five to the chest, one to the head, did she fire the 6th shot to his head and obviously miss? Where did the 6th bullet end up?
