    Default Now that's what I call Gun Control...

    Bruce McLaughlin Jr., 30, died from a gunshot to the head, Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley said...


    It seems that around 3am this morning, a couple of... inmates in the Pickens County Jail here in South Carolina beat up two guards in an escape they had planned for days. Minutes later, one of the inmates kicked in the back door of a home where a woman was alone, grabbed a knife sharpening tool from the woman's kitchen and headed toward her bedroom...

    The woman had gone through training to get a concealed weapons permit, not that she needed it in her own home... the permit that is...

    "This is the shining example of why owning and knowing how to use a gun is important," the sheriff said.

    Sheriff: Woman kills jail escapee who kicks in her door


    Good on her, though I imagine it isn't easy for a normal person to kill someone. Even in self defense I have to believe there is a certain level of trauma for a person...

    People from my country would never buy the pro-gun argument in all of this, in a million years ... even though the sheer logic of owning one, as this case proves, is clearly unassailable.

    Justice was served in this instance .. quickly, decisively, & as deserved !!

    Far less trauma than the slimeball would have inflicted on her.

    I'd have no problem what so ever shooting an intruder, if I had no other choice. My only thoughts about doing such is that one, there's going to be huge mess to clean up because the two pistols I have in the house for protection are large caliber, high power with hollow points, they're going to make big mess to clean up, and two, I wouldn't want the assholes ghost in my house. It would ruin my house to have to shoot someone in it. I'd do my best to hold the person until the law arrived.

    Somebody breaks into my home like that, I'd empty the gun into them.
