Cops: Mother of two surprises
intruder with five gunshots

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Christian Boone

Original Article

The Loganville mother of two assumed the knocks on her front door Friday afternoon were from a solicitor. “Don’t answer,” she yelled to her 9-year-old twins playing downstairs. When the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at work. “Get the kids and hide,” he told his wife. As he dialed 911, his 37-year-old spouse, who works from home, collected the children and hid with them in a crawlspace adjoining her office. By that time, the intruder had forced his way into the three-story residence on Henderson Ridge Drive with a crowbar,

Selfish gun-clinging woman deprives criminal armed with an Assault Crowbar the opportunity to victimize herself and her two children. For shame!

I am sure this story happened everyday, but never gets media attention.

Good for her. The Obama-voter criminal had multiple arrests/convictions but was still free to victimize hard-working, tax-paying honest citizens.

Look for the Obama ´Justice´ Department to prosecute her...

FTA: ´´My wife’s a hero,´´ the woman’s husband, Donnie Herman, told Channel 2 Action News in a brief statement.

And prior to that in the article there was this FTA: ´´He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,´´ said Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman, who relayed the woman’s narrative to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He asked that her name be withheld.

Hopefully the woman was photographed and fingerprinted now that the proper authorities know she has a gun. s/. What if there had been multiple perps? She´d have been out of bullets. And libs wonder why anyone needs high-capacity magazines.

His kin or his ilk will come for revenge.

But a shotgun, young lady.

12 gauge pump.

Nothing says ´don´t move and say your prayers´ like a round being pumped.

Nothing.

And the perp won´t be eligible for parole ...

Reason why you A) have bigger bullets and B) more bullets. I suggest a Glock 9mm handgun next time as it holds 10 to start with and you can get more with bigger magazines.

FTA: The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater was still conscious.

“The guy’s face down, crying,” the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again.

Slater, unaware that she had emptied her chamber -snip-

The injured burglar eventually made it out of the home and into his car, driving away before deputies arrived on the scene.

Maybe another poster will provide an update.

Five bullets at point blank range? Time to buy hollow point bullets and maybe an upgrade to a .357 magnum will do the trick next time.

Yes the National Rifleman Magazine which I have been receiving for 47 years DOES have a section titled ´the Armed Citizen´, it´s where I first turn to when I get my Magazine...I enjoy reading about women,senior and young teen citizens who foil the bad guys bent on doing them harm and get usually what they deserve. This lady was lucky, the evil doer was not put down and could have ended the story a different way. The lady needs to know where the OTHER cartridges are and how to reload with some haste. She had every right to finish him off and with a little more practice she could hit her target where most effective. Good for her. She refused to allow herself and her children to be a statistic.THAT´S WHY WE NEED GUNS!!!

Tucker and Loganville both are close to iffy areas. The metro area, save the north and northwest suburbs, runs the gamut, really. Gwinnett County, where this is, used to be pretty nice, and there are still some nice areas. But they didn´t plan well (planning/zoning or law enforcement), so now they have an overabundance of low-end housing, a complete mishmash of ethnicities, and something like 500 gangs. Not a place I want to live.

For home defense..a Mossberg 500 series, pistol grip and birdshot, good for 20 to 30ft. Big handgun ammo will not only penetrate the walls of your home, but also the neighbors.

What? The police weren´t there in time protect her? You mean these real life situations don´t work out like the lefties claim? No result like the alarm company ads where a disembodied voice says, "Identify yourself!" and the criminal gets a nervous look and runs away?

That´s why a firearm allows a woman and her children to have a fighting chance to protect themselves. Without that pistol, the cops would have shown up only in time to bag up her and her kids.

BTW, you shotgun fanboys: a shottie takes two hands to operate and doesn´t work easily in tight spaces - like a closet. You can´t carry a flashlight with it to determine the threat before pointing a loaded weapon. That´s why we chose a couple high-capacity handguns (Glock 19 and Sig P226) for our home defense plan.

Another nonsensical shotgun claim. Do you really think a drugged out, cornered, or enraged criminal is going to simply run off after you rack a shell? Would you expect this panicked woman hiding in a closet with her children to disclose her hiding place, hoist a shottie, chamber a round, and hope the dude runs off?

That´s not our plan. As in this situation, a criminal will be feeling the bullets impacting his body by the time he sees or hears a firearm in my house. We won´t kill someone over our insured stuff, but if he meets up with one of us, it´s far past time for a warning.

Do you really expect - in a situation where you are dumping adrenalin into your body, - you and your spouse (and your kids) will have the presences of mind and coordination to rack a shotgun shell to try to scare someone off? It may work in the movies and the ads, but it´s not a sound self defense plan.

A 3” Judge loaded with 5 rounds of 410 triple-ought buck would have done a fine job here. He would not have gone anywhere with most of his head on the wall behind him. And aim need not be that good, just aim in the general area of his head.

A good .45 ASSAULT pistol with a HIGH CAPACITY magazine would have done the trick. Hide the kids and then meet him in the hall and empty the magazine. Immediately reload in case his brother Jumail is still lurking somewhere outside. From the picture I can be certain he voted Obama. That means his skull is about 3" thick surrounding a walnut sized brain. A .38 just does not have enough penetration for that. If there is no brother Jumail lurking outside empty that second magazine as well, just for effect. Go make a big pot of coffee because the police will be there in 20 minutes.

We can debate calibers and loads and weapons all day and I often do. The important thing is she engaged her target, changed its behavior and stopped the attack.
Further destruction is just icing on the cake.

I used to work in Loganville. Nice town in Walton County (not Gwinnett). The sheriff actually chuckled during his radio interview when he described finding teeth on the floor of the shooting scene.

And yes, hollow points for home defense. They´ll expand before they pass through the body, even in the larger calibers like .40 or .45.

Aras Hussein, 21, stabbed student Reema Ramzan, 18, in her chest with a kitchen knife and began to decapitate her while she was still alive. He then stabbed himself in the chest, took his clothes off and went outside his flat in Shirecliffe, Sheffield.

Half of all foreign doctors in Britain do not have the necessary skills to work here but can practise because the competency exam is too easy, a major study finds. The majority of the 88,000 foreign doctors in the health service would fail exams if they were held to the same standard as their British colleagues, according to the research. The disclosure will add to concerns over the reliance of the NHS on foreign doctors. The language ability of some has been questioned in recent years. The research potentially shows more wide-ranging inadequacies. Around 1,300 foreign physicians are licensed each

Fredon — The U.S. Supreme Court will decide on Friday whether it will hear a Sussex County man’s challenge to New Jersey’s handgun carry laws. The lawsuit, brought by John Drake, challenges the “justifiable need” requirement the state asks for carrying a handgun. It has drawn the support of the National Rifle Association and 19 other states, who see the case as a possible watershed moment for reevaluating how the Second Amendment and state regulations interact. The nation’s highest court now has scheduled a conference for Friday morning on whether to decide to hear the case in its entirety, according

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years.
