Woman Shoots Two Intruders
WRAL ^ | 03/22/2013 | WRAL

Elm City, N.C. — An Elm City woman shot two men who broke into her home on Tonya Road Friday morning, her husband told WRAL News.

The woman, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol, her husband said.

"... The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them."

Try to imagine burglarizing an empty home, then you open a closet door and a Bengal tiger jumps out and mauls the crap out of you.

I bet they just stood there in shock getting hit by bullets.

“I bet they just stood there in shock getting hit by bullets.”

Let’s hope she was up to date on her target practice.

Yeah right. Just another NRA planted story I’m sure. This never happens. And if it did, lil’(?)jerry nadler said that 2 or 3 bullets is more than enough. Carry(!) on.

The couple asked not to be identified.

So we took a picture of their house and provided you with a map to it.

I was hoping that the coroner had custody.

What do you call two criminals with gunshot wounds?

Not so much, we have castle doctrine here in NC. :-)

Another example of senseless gun violence.
Two more statistics to prove that guns in the hands of unauthorized citizens lead to shootings. /s

Not just one, but two defensive uses of guns used in this story. From the article, it appears that after the wife shot the intruders, they ran towards a neighbor’s house. The neighbor felt threatened so he pointed a gun at the suspects to protect himself; thereby, forcing the criminals to flee into the woods. Now, I wonder if this gets any national press coverage.

Yes, the article has been expanded since I originally posted. More details now available:

The men fled, and neighbor Wayne Crumpler said he heard them yelling for help.

“I heard somebody out at the road. He was hollering, ‘Help me,’ waving his arms, jumping up and down trying to stop traffic,” Crumpler said. “There was another guy in the background. I heard him hollering, ‘Help me, I’ve been shot in the chest. I’m dying.’”

One of the men then started toward Crumpler’s house.

“He started in this direction. I stepped inside and got my revolver,” he said. “I told him to hold it.”

The man then ran into the woods, Crumpler said.

Pretty cool. The neighbor was going to finsih them off. HA. Maybe if enough of these keep happening, it WILL reduce crime. The thugs will start to think twice about their chances of getting away with anything without being shot or killed.

The left is actively trying to take away this right from normal, non-violent citizens.

The left feels that violent criminals should be able to just waltz in and take what is “rightfully” theirs.

Assuming this part of the event chain is accurate I’m gonna recommend the closet chick step up to a litle more horsepower-—I’d say 357 magnum minimum. There’s no excuse for letting these two boobs remain in running condition. That’s part of the responsibility that goes along with defending one’s self——don’t leave the dunderheads in shape to do damage to someone else. The woman would have felt terrible if they had hurt a neighbor after she just winged them

LOL cut her a little slack here, she had stayed home for a sick day and probably wasn’t in her best form.

Even though she did not put them in the ground, I don’t think they were in much condition to attack people. The neighbor said they were screaming “Help, me ....I’m dying...”. She probably had .38 revolver and we don’t know exactly how much practice she had using it. So, I am gonna say she did pretty good all things considered.

Keep shooting, honey! Give 'em about five or six each -- remember, they can't come around the local courthouse with a lawsuit for "pain and suffering" and a big sob story and ACLU lawyer later on, if they're pushing up daisies at Forest Lawn.

Don't let them come into court later and lie about you! Because they will!

Nah. Willie and Tyrone again -- and their cousin Leon behind the wheel.

Old New Orleans geologist I knew used to read the New Orleans Times-Picayune police blotter religiously .... he always said, if NOPD would ever get halfway smart and just pick up those two and hold them, crime in New Orleans would crash. Them and their cousin Leon.

I’ve noted an interesting pattern in similar perps who have been shot. They immediately seek out passerby for help, and say words to the effect of, “I’ve been shot, I’m dying!”

I suspect there is a psychological meaning to this, but I’ve no idea what.

That being said, passerby rarely offer aid and comfort, for some reason.

If her neighbor had shot them with rock salt, that would have been rubbing salt in their wounds.
