    Yes it is!

    Now who would have thought I needed stronger glasses?

Occasionally the good guys are injured too, either from gunfire, or sometimes by the beating they were getting before they could get to their guns.

    That is the section of the magazine I look forward to reading the most.

    I doubt it...the law is on her side. While we do see crazy lawsuits like that from time to time it certainly isn't the norm.

    But you do bring up a good point of the possible aftermath of such a self defense act. If you do act in a manner that is not quite within the law you can be up for criminal and civil litigation. Know the laws!

    And what impact did this have on the children witnessing this? Maybe minimal to none but you never know, and all due to a lowly scumbag with a long history of crime. I hope the twins are ok and from what I can tell of the family, they will get any support they might need. And I hope the mother doesn't carry this this with her as a mental burdon with increased fear or anxieties. I hope she feels like the hero that we, and her husband, know she is!

    Children are very resilient. Those twins will probably go back to school with a "My mom can shoot your but so don't mess with me attitude.

    Also in the People's Republik of Maryland, one of the most criminal (PC version: socio-economically challenged and disadvantaged individuals) friendly states in the country. Time and time again in the the Republik, citizens defend themselves or their loved ones against evil and then face criminal prosecution and/or civil suites, while the socio-economically challenged and disadvantaged individuals remain free and clear, and in many instances, profit from their actions.

    Even if he hasn't said so I'm sure he is and a lot of others with him.
    Funny thing, I've heard stories about a couple of the ladies and their guns in our little valley. And there are not many salesman going door to door around here either. Correlation?

    Actually it does...sorta. It will be included in the "Homicide by gun" statistics and they will do their best to ignore "Justified" attached to it.

    It will come out as just another Death by Evil Gun.

    I hope she and her children are OK emotionally and remain that way inn the long run. Contrary to many anti-gun people, no one wants to shoot anyone and there is no joy afterwards. It can be and often is very traumatic; problems are often delayed and come on much later.

    I am glad the results were in her favor, I just hate that she was put in this position.
