Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder
WSB-TV [Atlanta], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:markinalpine, 1/5/2013 12:24:56 PM

LOGANVILLE, Ga. — A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday. The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar. But the man eventually found the family.

Comments:
She had a .38 revolver. She had better get a semi-auto pistol with a high capacity magazine before the obysmal won and his demonrat thugs succeed in getting them banned.

She needs to work on her shot placement. He shouldn´t have survived the encounter with her using .38 caliber rounds.

I had a cop show me a photo once taken back in the ´30s, when most cops used .38s, of a armed perp who had been shot more than 40 times before ceasing to resist. That´s why a lot of departments bought .357s.

Poorly written article, first it said the punk had face and neck wounds, then farther into the article it said he had punctured lungs, punctured liver and might not survive the night. I think she did pretty good but she needs a semi-auto with a 17 round clip.

Hope he assumes room temp.

I believe Slater should be charged with his own `attempted murder` as his actions caused the homeowner to put his life in jeopardy during the commission of a serious crime.

That was some good shooting. She might want to consider the use of starburst ammo that expands to twice its diameter (.38 x 2= .76, or 3/4 of an inch) upon impact. That destroys lots more tissue, and takes the burden off of the surgeons, who don´t have to operate. He would have died in his vehicle, if not sooner.

Sometimes you have to be practical. I carry a .380 Kel Tec that is easily concealable and only weighs about ten ounces loaded.

It´s very comfortable and I find myself carrying it more than my other pistols.

It may be a little underpowered but it´s more effective than the heavy .45 that I left at home.

Too bad he lived, he sounds like he practices crime as a way of life since he had six arrests. Plus, the possibility of a lawsuit for self-defense these days is very real. They would probably throw in racism for good measure.

+P hollow-points means that the lowly 380 is much better for defense than it used to be when FMJ (full metal jacket or "ball") was the norm. Spend your money for high end ammo for carry, just make sure your firearm functions with it as some HP bullet shapes may cause problems in some guns. Buy cheap stuff for practice or plinking.

Heck, she hit this Gomer with five out of six rounds. Pretty damned good shooting if you ask me. The cops around here have been known to fire their Glocks in a close quarters gunfight until the slide locks back and miss the other guy every freaaking time. Oh for seventeen. And they spend lots of time at the range.

One thing about wheel guns, they rarely jam. Semi-autos; another story.

#9/#10/#13/#19: EXACTLY

The 38 revolver is a good defensive arm because of its convenience of carry/concealment along with reasonable recoil for someone who doesn’t have a strong wrist.

I still prefer my M1911 while my wife carries a 5 round Taurus loaded with 38-Special +P topped with the best expanding bullet available!

The fact that she got 5 out of 6 into him is indication that it was/is a good arm for her. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 5 rounder to begin with.

But, as previously posted, with four exit wounds, it was probably loaded with Hard Ball which is a big No-No for a defensive round.

As a minimum it should have been an expanding round with consideration for +P or +P+ although a +P+ round may have been too much for her to handle.

Hard Ball is for NATO troops. Defensive Rounds are for Defensive Carry!

FWIW: The Fascists in DC and many state capitals have wanted to outlaw defensive rounds in the past and we can expect it to be part of the new push by the Kenyan and that witch from San Fran.

Kafir

PS: Like others here, I love happy endings and #19 nails it for me!

The crook, on the other hand, is something he should not be. Alive. Safe bet his medical bills will be on our nickel.

It wasn´t just a quick snatch and run burglary. It makes one wonder if he was intentionally looking to harm people since he went upstairs to the attic. He´d be healthy and probably free if he had done a quick grab and go of a few things on the main floor. Oh well, I really don´t feel too sorry for him.

I see from the photo that the alleged perpetrator was African American, while the husband of the alleged potential “victim” appears caucasian, so we might assume that his wife is also, possibly. In any case, I suspect that this is a racist crime, and that the alleged perpetrator was in fact, the victim. I think we should all send contributions to the victim support fund, in care of the Reverends Sharpton and Jackson, and rest assured that justice will prevail.

How long would it have taken the police to get to her house? Long enough for him to kill three people with his crowbar. Another vote for the NRA and gun owners. I congratulate her, but she might need to learn how to aim better, if she shot him in the face. The body is a bigger target.

Yes, the full size 1911 in .45ACP is heavy, but it is also quite effective. That is why I always carry TWO. On my person. Because any machine can malfunction and will do so at the worst possible time. I also carry eight extra eight-round MAGAZINES. Got that, folks? MAGAZINES! I carry eight extra MAGAZINES because every gunfight in history was won by the last round fired and I don´t want to be the first one in the fight to run dry. Also because no modern semi-automatic firearm will accept or function with CLIPS. I have tried full and half moon CLIPS, M1 Garand clips, M14 and M16 loading CLIPS, etc. None of my semi-automatics will accept any known CLIP. They all function as designed with the proper MAGAZINE.

I know, I know. I am a fanatic. But firearms are my life. It is what I do. And remember: when choosing a sidearm for personal protection; it is not supposed to be comfortable, it is supposed to be comforting.

#22 is right. This man was probably looking to harm someone. He already has simple assault on his rather long record, perhaps pled down from a more serious charge.

As a woman who has never married, why did she waste time calling her husband? If I thought I was in danger I would take the phone into the attic with me, and the gun, and call 911 myself. What a dopey woman! Can´t she make a decision without her husband? Yes, good for her she shot him, but calling your husband first, a waste of time.

Maybe the perp drove past their house and saw the two 9-year-old twins playing outside. Thinking they were home alone, he decided to go and get them.

Maybe for personal use; maybe to sell.

MINNEAPOLIS — Even as President Obama and progressive activists are trying to sell the nation on hiking the national minimum wage to help restaurant workers and other low-wage employees, the Internal Revenue Service is seemingly determined to make life harder for those same workers. A change in tax policy implemented Jan. 1 will prevent restaurant workers from collecting automatic gratuities — the added 18 percent fee many restaurants charge to groups of eight or more — as part of their tips. Instead, that added fee will be included in their payroll, meaning workers have to wait up to two weeks

An Obamacare Milestone

This week Obamacare passed an unflattering milestone. As of today, the Obama administration has spent longer botching the implementation of Obamacare than the Roosevelt and Truman administrations spent fighting and winning the Second World War. America’s involvement in World War II began on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended 1,365 days later on September 2, 1945, with the surrender ceremony aboard the U.S.S. Missouri anchored in Tokyo Bay. President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. Today, December 18, 2013, marks the 1,366th day of post-enactment Obamacare implementation.

Are too many kids taking
antipsychotic drugs?
Consumer Reports, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: markinalpine- 12/15/2013 12:49:29 PM     Post Reply
The number of children taking powerful antipsychotic drugs has nearly tripled over the last 10 to 15 years, according to recent research. The increase comes not because of an epidemic of schizophrenia or other forms of serious mental illness in children, but because doctors are increasingly prescribing the drugs to treat behavior problems, a use not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And a disproportionate number of those prescriptions are written for poor and minority children, some as young as age 2. Doctors are prescribing antipsychotics even though there’s minimal evidence that the drugs help kids for approved

DUBAI - Iran is moving ahead with testing more efficient uranium enrichment technology, a spokesman for its atomic energy agency said on Saturday, in news that may concern world powers who last month agreed a deal to curb Tehran´s atomic activities. Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying that initial testing on a new generation of more sophisticated centrifuges had been completed, underlining Iran´s determination to keep refining uranium (snip) Some experts believe the IR-2m can enrich uranium 2-3 times faster than the IR-1.

OSLO - Scientists have produced hydrogen by accelerating a natural process found in rocks deep below the Earth´s surface, a short-cut that may herald the wider use of what is a clean fuel, a study showed on Sunday. Used in rockets and in battery-like fuel cells, hydrogen is being widely researched as a non-polluting fuel, but its use is so far hampered by high costs. A few hydrogen vehicles are already on the roads, such as the Honda FXC Clarity and Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, and more are planned. Researchers in France said aluminum oxide speeded up a process by which hydrogen

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
