Who needs guns? Woman stops assault by shooting ex (Texas)

Resource: http://bigcountryhomepage.com/fulltext?nxd_id=558522
One of the things about writing these stories (and I hope, from reading them) is how everyday people are able to stop what would be tragedies by using their legally owned firearms and their inalienable rights to protect themselves - that whole life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness thing that's under attack right now.

It was 8 o'clock Christmas evening as a 35-year-old Abilene, Texas woman was enjoying the holiday with her 16-year-old daughter and her newborn. Their peaceful holiday was interrupted when the woman's ex-boyfriend and the father of the children - 34-year-old Ernest Gonzales - arrived at the home and attempted to kick in the side door to gain entry to the house.

The woman called 911 and Gonzales fled the scene. That's how this is supposed to work. We all know that's not always the end of it.

At around 2 o'clock this morning, as the family slept, everything seemed fine. Then their world came apart as Gonzales returned and kicked in the front door - causing considerable damage according to the police report . Gonzales proceeded to attack the woman and began beating her,

Luckily, the woman escaped momentarily and was able to get to her legally owned .380 semi-automatic and fire at her attacker. Gonzales was hit once in the side. Wounded, Gonzales fled the house and was found in the front yard by officers responding to the situation. Gonzales was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

I'll bet you 100 dollars she probably wouldn't have won that fight in the middle of the night with a lamp or a baseball bat.

"I'll bet you 100 dollars she probably wouldn't have won that fight in the middle of the night with a lamp or a baseball bat."

Well put. Guns are the great equalizer and from the sounds of it she was definitely not winning that battle.
