BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. – A 29-year-old woman fought off intruders by firing a gun. On Wednesday afternoon, deputies received a 911 call from the victim reporting there were just two masked men inside her Bartholomew County home.
“I mean it’s pretty quiet out here. You don’t hear of anything like that going on that often,” said Elliot Keen, a neighbor.
The victim told detectives she confronted the intruders, pulled out a gun, and fired one shot as they took off. It’s unclear if the bullet hit one of the intruders.
“Being a woman, as young as she is, I’m very proud of her and pleased to know that she was gutsy enough to do what she did,” said Kaye Coffman, a witness.
Just yesterday we discussed the fact that two other women in different locations and under different circumstances were under threat and used guns to defend themselves, neither of them trained in all of those super stress management ninja warrior tactical techniques. Not that I recommend not getting training, because I recommended then and I recommend now training as much as you can reasonably afford.
But the notion that people cannot effect self defense with a firearm is so foolish it’s not even worthy of serious discussion or consideration. Progressives know that, and they know that when they throw up these objections they’re just throwing up a smoke screen.
Reasonable people see through the smoke. But shhhh … don’t tell the progs that their smoke isn’t effective. We want them to continue to claim that no one can use a gun to defend themselves while reports continue to come out where people do. It makes the progs look stupid.
