Great argument for 30-round magazines, as well...
Even though the guy survived, you really can't fault the woman's shooting. She did a nice head-to-torso placement of her rounds and tagged him 5 of 6. He was apparently just lucky.
God bless this woman. I hope she understands that she was defending her family and I pray she has no problems from her actions.
From the article: "The woman then shot him five times, but he survived . . . Slater was shot in the face and neck".
You're right about the shotgun - this guy was still a danger after he was hit with five of her six shots (even though that is pretty good shooting under pressure). I like the stopping power of a 12 gauge whether loaded with a slug, buckshot, or just about anything else at this very short range. Hit a thug with five shots from a 12 gauge, including in the face and neck, and he's not probably going to drive away like this criminal did.
As for Bloomberg, I hope he wises up before his extended family (not his immediate family; they have armed guards) or someone he cares about is hurt because they are disarmed. I hope even more that he wises up before innocent citizens who are not related to him are hurt because of his anti-gun policies.
Actually I hope the guy survives. Then we can see if he changes, having been shot within inches of his life.
Good news site. The stories are objective and well written.
This wife/mother did a fine job of protecting herself and her children. She is an example to all as to why our natural, God given right was incorporated into the Second Amendment. Self defense is just one of the Amendment’s purposes. Citizen protection against tyranny or a mob, recreation, hunting, collecting and other firearms related pursuits are as well.
Chapman said Slater has four exit wounds.
The guy must have an angel looking over his shoulder...Hope this turns him around because he needs to realize being shot six times VERY few people live...
Sounds like she used the old .38 round nose loads. Five Hornady Critical Defense +P loads would have put this guy down for good.
Why is everyone picking on a .38 6-shooter? Could’ve been a 5-shooter like mine, too. Did the job it had to do. The guy is on life support and was disabled. They don’t all have to be dead.
I have to disagree here.
This women could have easily called the police and had them take care of this instead of brandishing a dangerous firearm, which only made the house a target to start!
Way to turn an otherwise safe home into a wild west shootout!
I really had to turn my brain off in order to type that just so you know.
Black on white crime. Obama’s people. This thug had been arrested six times since 2008. Why in the world is this guy on the streets. Now a woman that defended herself will have to live with this memory for the rest of her life, plus probably legal action and potentially being sued by the criminal. Too bad she didn’t kill this piece of human excrement.
I cannot fault this woman one bit. But dang, she needs a bigger gun!
“Slater was shot in the face and neck... and suffers from punctured lungs, a punctured liver and a punctured stomach.”
Holy macanarsels, Margaret!
If the surgeons manage to patch up Humpty Dumpty, there, they need to get the Dr. Frankenstein award for truly impressive surgery.
I just sent this to Feinstein by email...
Senator Feinstein: Please read this report and then be honest and tell the whole country that this woman didn’t need a gun to defend herself and her children. She deserved to own a gun to protect her family just as you did when your life was threatened. What on earth made you think you were any different from the millions of other people in this country who need to protect themselves from criminals?
I’ll be interested in learning your answer to that question. A neighbor in our county who shot and killed an intruder in her home in the spring of 2011 would also like an answer to that simple question. She was in her shower when she was attacked by an intruder and had presence of mind enough to grab a gun and empty it into the creep! What makes anyone’s life worth less than yours?
Liberals hate this. In the liberal “mind” the “oppressed downtrodden” criminal should be able to just waltz in and take whatever is “rightfully” his.
"She could have just asked him to leave."

Obama/Holder Department of Just Us and Our People to investigate crime.
Another case: Mother of Florida man who chewed off the face of another man said that the police should have subdued her son, they did not have to shoot him.
