Skip to comments.Heavily armed Alabama mom and intruder
Posted on 08/18/2012 8:48:35 PM PDT by djone
"Intruder breaks in, mom calls cops, grabs gun, runs upstairs to daughters rooms and tells them to arm up." When mommas got a gun and her two daughters can quickly lay their hands on a butcher knife and an axe, youve become the very definition of failure in the victim selection process.
Honestly, when you decide to stage a home invasion in Alabama, youve already made a big mistake......

Watch the video to see what Mom thinks of anti-gunners.
Update: It occurs to me that there are people in the world who would call this woman and her daughters paranoid for having a gun, knife, and an axe close to hand in the event of a home invasion. The anti self-defense crowd would insist that she quit living in fear. They dont care if she and her daughters were raped, robbed, and murdered. They are perfectly willing to sacrifice this family to live in a world without legally owned weapons. [hat tip: instantpundit.com] I loved this comment: " --Erin: Remember, a gun in the house is 47 times more likely to kill a family member than a drugged up jackass too stupid to leave when faced with a mom, two daughters, a gun, an axe, and a butcher knife.-------
I’m thinking she didn’t prevent a burglary.
I’m thinking you’re right.
Nowadays, it would be what that family in Connecticut went through: the intruders killing the wife and daughters and leaving the dad alive—and it would not be quick.
Pleasantly shocked the local news reported this in a positive, pro second amendment vein.
I’d hit it....gently....
The antigun people think that as long as they are not the thugs’ targets, everything is just fine in the world. It’s just those poor folks’ fate to be victims, and they just hope the next day it isn’t their own fate. But they would still rather have all the rest of us disarmed and be victims because somehow that makes them sleep better and/or feel safer.
Why disarming LAW ABIDING PEOPLE makes them feel safer though is a totally irrational and illogical point of view. I can see how disarming all the thugs would. But since they get their weapons illegally and whatever laws are on the books at the moment NEVER bother them at all, it makes it even more irrational and illogical to think this way.
He’s still alive - I wish she had killed him. If I have to shoot an intruder, he isn’t going to move again.
She shoots gently. :)
Well she prevented ANOTHER burglary, at least in this guy’s case for a few years;)
Yes she IS kind of hot. Wonder what her FR screen name is?;)
The recidivism rate is about 70% within three years. He may take a little longer.
“The recidivism rate is about 70% within three years. He may take a little longer.”
If I shoot him, he would have to be a real zombie to do it again.
In your dreams.
Id hit it....gently....And I’d be sure I’d do a damn good job of it. She might shoot me otherwise.
She sounds like a member of Second Amendment Sisters. The founders were all FReepers.
I like stories with happy endings.
One of the commenters on that article give me my new tag line.
Ahhhh...Sweet Home Alabama.
Second Amendment Kudos
Don’t think so. I just went out with a gal who had similar looks.
That is the exact same case that crossed my mind. As a mother and having a daughter, even my son, to be helpless and unable to do anything and having to watch while my children were harmed would be a living hell. I think this mother...well kudos to her for teaching her daughters that they are not helpless victims. They can protect themselves. Starting this mindset early is so important.
