"Isn't it time the law said that if someone enters your home illegally they forfeit any rights and legal standing they have?"

I really hate Bob.
Hey Bob, come over my place on Saturday and we'll have a few beers. The lock on my front door's broken, so just let yourself in.
Put my shoulder to my own door and smash the lock, leaving the door ajar.
Lay in wait for Bob.
Shoot Bob. Kill Bob.
He broke in, officer! I thought he was going to kill me! He's always had it in for me at the office, I just knew it! I didn't think it was this bad though! I had to shoot! I'm not in trouble am I? I was just protecting myself!
No? Okay, thank you officer!
The end.

That is what happens when you come into the territory of a mother bear. Good for her for protecting herself and her children. I don't feel a bit sorry for the a-hole that broke into her house, and I don't care if his intentions were to rape her while he was there or not.. We at least know he sure as hell didn't break into her house to bake her a cake and clean up for her. He was there to at least take things that didn't belong to him. I'm sorry but, if someone breaks into my home I am deffinately not going to stand there and ask the guy if he is just there to take my things or, if he is going to rape and kill me while he is at it and if so, than could he just kindly stand there while I dial for the police and wait for them to get here.........Uuummmm I don't think so. I feel that I should have the right to protect my family,myself and home and If that makes me a bad person than so be it..I don't care, I'm protecting what is mine..

@Suicism

You need more stories like this? Is that really what you want? More stories that start with a criminal breaking into someone's home?

Think about that for a moment or two.

"A mother's instinct is to protect, not go on the offensive."

You're single, male, with no children, and you are many, MANY years away from the memories of your own childhood.

Why do you think you're qualified to say what a mother's instincts are?

OMG, all my anti-americans with guns has just been blown out of the water.
Isn't it time the law said that if someone enters your home illegally they forfeit any rights and legal standing they have? In other words, if they come to any harm by your hand, tough.

What i can read from pro-gunners is the possibility of killing someone legally that attracts them.

This getting a bit thick already.. 5Cats, please return to your crackpot right wing propaganda sites and stay there. This is total poo. There is no way of knowing what were his intentions, other than break&entry.. Most likely, this is actually unnecessary violence, he mother had no right to shoot. If the assailant was lunging at her, yes, shoot but this is most likely just a break&entry that escalated to extremes. 0-1 for the gun nuts.

IAB: Please stop accepting posts from either sides. This once funny site is becoming another mudslinging fest.

in this case it appears the guy rang the doorbell (which would indicate he was trying to rob the place, i mean, who warns their potential rape victim?) so she had time to prepare, i wonder what would have happend if he walked in through the backdoor and suprised her) this is where the flight/freeze happens) would she have had enough time to grab her gun, take aim and shoot before she had her head kicked in? guns are just one aspect of self defense and have their valua only in certian situations, just like pepperspray/tasers/physical skills/etc.

We need more stories like this. I wonder how many more there are out there? Probably at least as many as the heinous killing sprees that we've been traumatized by?

@CrakrJak

Actualy any parents instinct is to protect his or her offspring. as for your claim about women not going to the offensive, the way the limbic brain is hardwired is that any lifeform will either fight flight or freeze and those three options are the same for any gender. the fight reaction can be "trained" by building up "subconsious" or "instinctive" reactions (basicaly what they do in ze army for example) the "instinctive" reactions i'm sugesting might include a kick to the groin, but i preffer pressure point and locks among others, and those would include the option of never having the attacker walk away,(which he did this time after being shot 5 times.) wether you go for for physical skills or a gun, you still have to overcome your flight/freeze reaction. I agree though guns are a great tool for self defense, but people tend to put to much valua on it, ....

@5Cats even if i was stoned, and even if it was strong stuff, my brain would function at a level that yours will never reach. Go play with some crayons.

MrOrange: You might be able to teach a mother to kick a guy in the nuts, but that doesn't make her mentally prepared to do so when her children are with her. A mother's instinct is to protect, not go on the offensive.

Give it a 1/3rd of that time, one week, and a gun instructor could teach her to be a crack-shot with a handgun and she'll be mentally prepared to use it as well. Why? because she won't have to be within arms reach to defend herself.

A gun owner's wet dream: A chance to legally murder someone. And be called a hero too.

This is proof: liberalism truly is a mental disease.

Who knows how this guy might've reacted if he'd been faced with a knife or a baseball bat or a tazer instead?

Well, if he'd had a gun, and she'd pulled a knife or a bat, she'd be dead. Now the question is, who knows what would have happened to the kids?

There's no doubt that having and knowing how to use a firearm (well, sort of... 5 outa 6 "in the face and neck area" at point blank range and not one lethal hit?) saved this woman and her kids from some kind of bad situation but for 5Rats to jump on it with "she and her kids would be raped and dead" is simply asinine trolling. For all we know, the intruder might have said, "Didn't think anyone was home! I'm outa here!" It's just as likely, probably more so. Who knows how this guy might've reacted if he'd been faced with a knife or a baseball bat or a tazer instead?

There will never be (and very few even want) a "gun-free America" yet 5Rats has to grasp at any tragedy or horrific news story trying to promote his particular vision of how America should be. (You'd think the asshat lived here!) I should point out though that this woman didn't need a 30-round weapon to successfully defend her family.

My liberal side feels dumber just from reading this.

but give me three weeks to train a woman and she'll deal with about 95% of the males you can throw at her


Give a woman 2 minutes she'll be ready fend off 95% itchin to violate her property.

Gwinett county? Not surprising - might have just said that her husband was her brother and many years ago, Grandpa was the kid with the banjo in Deliverance.

The best burglar is a dead burglar. Don't want to get shot? Don't break into someones house. Pretty simple, really. People are crying because 5 rounds was too many, or that she should have yelled that someone was in the house? F*ck that, should have shot him 10 times. Worthless scumbag has nothing good to offer society. Good riddance.

You stoned again @Mr.Orange? Strong stuff!

The defense of a smaller person vs a bigger one depends almost entirely on "shock and surprise". Followed by running away (if you're sane).

If the larger foe is alert, serious and properly motivated? The smaller one's "trick" had better work perfectly or it's over in seconds. If both sides "play without rules" then 80% of all males will defeat 80% of all females. 3 weeks of training helps, otherwise it's 90/90... just a guess of course.
How many female "MMA Fighters" are in there with the boys their same weight? ZERO.

Add a crowbar to the large foe's side and it's really, seriously one-sided.

Clemy, stop posting, you're a real piece of poo. She did what she needed to to protect her children, and it has nothing to do with killing innocent people. Kindly go die somewhere.

Good for her. Someone breaks into your home, shoot them.
