Tragic. On the upside, thankfully there wasn't a gun to be found in the house! Those things can kill you - ya' know?

You best believe the anti-gunners won't say a word about this. This is a perfect example of why women especially should always be armed, but ironically, they are the most anti-gun segment of our population.

An ounce of lead is worth more than a pound of restraining-orders....

Back in the 80's we were watching a show (don't remember the name of it) and there was a singles complex and, in this episode, a rapist in the area. The ladies were meeting in one of the apartments and one of the slightly older ladies took a .38 out of her purse. One of them asked what she need that for(!) and she said, [b]"A gaping chest wound tends to take the fight out of a man."[/b] It struck me then as being an overlooked, obvious truth. Bet you won't hear that on TV anymore.

And if one of the neighbors had responded, they would have had to subdue the knife weilding man. And possibly spent the rest of their life in court, or in jail for defending this neighbors right to life. Bob

You miss the point: you're not supposed to help yourself - you're supposed to sit there & take it, lest you be held civilly &/or criminally liable. That poor woman did exactly what the authorities allow, & expect - placidity. Remember - self-defense is an abomination.

Call 911, then order a pizza. Care to wager who'll get there first?
