***I’m curious as to why this incident is getting so much play in the media.***

The media went on an anti-gun tirade back in 1963 when Kennedy got shot. From that day, we saw lots of anti-gun newspaper articles and anti-gun themes were worked into all TV shows, even the western and detective and comedies had their anti-gun lines. Some western movies of the early 1970s had anti-gun themes.

Any good use of a gun was played down or turned into a “vigilante” discussion.

When an armed civilian helped a policeman stop the Texas Tower shooter, his role was downplayed When a TV movie was made of it, the writers managed to sneak in a very anti-gun line, and, at the end of the movie, a voice over advertizement for another show was used to cover up a statement that the shooter had a brain tumor which may or may not caused his rampage.

Why is it that I remember all these details after 41 years when the TV movie was broadcast?

And don’t get me started on the only Archie Bunker, or Heck (Richard Boone) Ramsey, or Dennis Weaver spouting anti-gun lines.

It was hoped by politicians that all handguns would be permanently banned by 1979.

I had my little .22 Browning lady gun. My son got a beautiful .357 magnum S&W revolver and came over to show it off. Mama promptly confiscated it. “If Mama ain’t happy, nobodies happy” is the working philosphy here.

Here is the video and her husband does not look like he was 58 years old like the article in The Mail claims

I love the part where they explain that it took the perp 20 minutes to break in the house. Nowhere does it explain why in 20 minuts the cops couldn’t get there.

Someone just came forward claiming she and her deceased husband were swatting it that home.

The two men were sent by the owner to get her out, one my have actually been a process server.

I think one reason it is getting so much play is the race of the dirtbags.

the dirt bags where white not black

There you go... The perps were likely NOT "aspiring rap artists".

I'll go out on a limb here and guess that you meant "squatting in" that home?

Well, that would certainly complicate things a tad...

Thanks for the link Oatka

It may not be the same incident but Oatka supplies a link to what sounds to be a similar event in post 23

"The two men were sent by the owner to get her out, one my have actually been a process server."

Do process servers typically break open doors while armed with knives?

McKinley then dusted the knife wielder, and the other bandit fled the scene and was later arrested when Goofy called emergency to report his dead buddy.

I love happy endings.

Interesting:
[18-year old] Ms McKinley had kept the 12-gauge gun with which she shot Martin, as well as a pistol, after selling the rest of her husband’s guns to help pay for his funeral.

Mr McKinley had taught her how to shoot, she said. Though he was 40 years her senior, she says she’s not ashamed she married him. ‘I still love him with everything I am,’ she said.

The couple began living together three years ago and obtained a marriage licence in November.

[from the Daily Mail (UK) article linked above]

Other info from same: The baby in the photo looks 2-4 months old. The road to their house is a mile long gravel road. The dead man, Martin, had stalked the girl two years ago at a rodeo.

I know they were white. When a white person kills a white person, no one cares. But, you know what? I think I was wrong. I admit it when I am. It is surprising that it is not more visible because it would suit to have the bad guys be white. I am being a dunce today!
