I SHOT MY STALKER TONIGHT: Woman Posts Aftermath of Defensive Gun Use [VIDEO]

Resource: http://www.fox5vegas.com/story/26635005/man-shot
A Las Vegas woman posted pictures and the story of her defensive gun use on the popular image sharing site, Imgur.com. The woman shared a link to details of her stalker's activities and the 6 months of threats and harassment. 

A few nights ago, that harassment turned into a violent attack on her life. Luckily, she was armed and able to defend herself. In her own words from Imgur.com,

"I'm writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog. After 6 months of stalking and threats against my life my stalker finally snapped and decided to kick my door in and make good on his promise. Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency.



I shudder to think how differently things might've turned out had I not barricaded the door.

I awoke around 115 am to the sound of the door giving way after one kick followed by the sounds of my stalker struggling to dislodge the chair while forcing his way inside. I jumped up and grabbed the gun I've learned to do everything even shower with. I stood at the top of my stairs and fired twice.

Hitting him in the chest, I hear his scream, his disbelief that I'd stood up for myself.. 0 to 100 in milliseconds. I've never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that's what helps the most.

For months of him evading the police I began to question whether he was unstoppable. Untraceable. Houdini, he would murder me and get away with it. As of now I'm in a haze of guilt, surprise, relief and disbelief. I shook as the canines drag him out from his hiding place under a bush. I survived, where so many people do not. Holy shit, I survived."

Edit: The outpouring of support is WILD. I cant thank you guys enough. Everyone can be a critic and the fact still remains, you dont know what you will do in a situation until its presented in front of you. Those who believe there was other things to be done have never had someone tell you that you no longer deserve to draw breath and mean it. And for the 'shouldve fired a warning shot' folks:

There are no warning shots, a gun is a deadly force, you only pull that trigger if you are in fear for your life and all other methods of deterring are gone. When he kicked my door in, there was no longer a deterrent preventing harm. Warning shots are dangerous and could hurt the unintended. This is not a wild west movie. Thats what responsible gun ownership is. Ill update once things have calmed down a bit I promise. Ill write back to everyone and after being isolated for so long, anyone who wants to be friends, I am always accepting those.

About the Author:
I am a firearm enthusiast. I was raised around all kinds of firearms my entire life. I was not unfamiliar with them and they were not treated like a dirty secret in my home. They were always treated like any other adult object; such as alcohol or smoking and driving, but with even more respect. It was made very clear to my siblings and I, that firearms are tools to be used in a very specific way and with great care and only after being taught the proper way to use them responsibly. Because of that up bringing I hold firearms to this day in that regard and respect. The way I was taught to regard firearms has given me a clear understanding that the true danger lies not with the tool but with the user, and that that goes with anything. I am an advocate for the cause of freedom of the individual in all regards. I am a strict Constitutionalist. This means I believe the rights and responsibility lie with the individual. That the government is there not to dictate what is allowed; but to assure that there is recourse for an individual against another who has violated their rights. The morality and law begins with the self and proliferates outward from there. You are responsible for your own actions and the actions that you force upon others. The only way to truly be free is to value your freedom so much that you value others freedoms. The Second Amendment or the right to keep and bear arms is a physical representation of the freedom of a nation. To be told that you cannot and are not allowed to protect yourself, your family or your property by another, in a way you feel is most effective clearly is proof you are not free. Government by the people, for the people, a Republic based on the laws and rights of the individual first encompassing personal property rights as well. I could go on about this for hours but it is nothing that has not been said a hundred times before. If you read this thank you. If you did not and are simply visiting EBGC thank you for that. LJ
