Monday Blog: No Need to Pray for Forgiveness…
December 14th, 2009
This week I have one of the best examples of the lifesaving importance of firearm ownership– that even the most rabid, gun-grabbing politicians could never dispute.
Here is the actual 911 call of a woman behind lock doors, with a big dog, and the police dispatch on the phone for over 30 MINUTES as a deranged man relentlessly attempts to find a way in to get her…
The fence and locked gate did not stop the man.
The big dog did not stop the man.
The locked doors and windows of her home did not stop the man.
Her son, the cop, could not stop the man.
The 911 dispatchers could not stop the man.
The police could not stop the man.
The only thing that stopped the man was the woman’s mindset that she was NOT going to allow him to enter and her decision that she would use deadly force to stop him if needed.
Here is the entire 911 call that lasts over 30 minutes…
Here is the local news report on the incident.
This courageous woman not only made the right choice, she handled herself in an extraordinary manner by delivering a single, well placed shot to end the threat.
If I were to speak with her, I would express my empathy for her enduring such a terrifying experience and tell her there is no need to ask for forgiveness in defending one’s life. She did the right thing. I’m proud of her and I believe millions of responsible and rational gun owners across this country are proud of her too!
Guns save lives, as she proved once again.
If I can offer up some advice to anyone involved in a similar situation in the future, it is this: HAVE A GUN… HAVE THE MINDSET… and HAVE THE ABILITY to use it.
Also, without demeaning or criticizing the actions of this brave woman in any way, I recommend you avoid using the word “kill” because an anti-gun prosecutor could try to stretch the imagination of a jury by suggesting that uttering such a word indicates premeditated intent.
Those who are formally and professionally trained know that when we shoot, we shoot to stop the attack.
Whether the assailant lives or dies is not in our hands. Although “stopping” and “killing” may be one in the same result when you shoot someone in the thoracic cavity with a major caliber handgun, shotgun or rifle, we are not attempting to “kill” anyone.
Again, we shoot because we had no choice but to shoot… to stop the attack.
