In regards to gun laws that is. Here are two stories of two women, both put in positions where their lives were in danger Both stories via Bearing Arms. First up Texas, my state, where the right to self-defense IS honored
A woman was “cool as a cucumber” Friday evening when she opened fire at a man who tried to rob her at a gas station in northeast Harris County, sheriff’s deputies said.
The woman, in her mid-30s, pulled into an Exxon station about 6 p.m. along FM 2100 and Saddle Creek Farms Drive.
She was in the driver’s seat when a man suddenly got into the passenger side. He pulled out a knife and demanded her cash, Harris County sheriff’s deputies said.
The woman agreed and reached over to her purse. But instead of money, she pulled out a pistol.
“She shoots him one time in the left shoulder,” Deputy Thomas Gilliland said.
The man fled, running north along FM 2100. He collapsed about a quarter-mile away.
There we have a story of a women, who is alive BECAUSE she lives in a state that understands liberty. Sadly, New Jersey loathes liberty
45-year-old Michael Eitel is a fugitive on the run, wanted for the very preventable murder of his former girlfriend. A violent man, he had threatened her. A law-abiding citizen, she did everything she could legally to protect herself from him.
When Carol Bowne felt the threat of domestic violence, the petite hairdresser took steps to protect herself.
The Berlin Township woman got a restraining order against a former boyfriend, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun, friends said.
But it wasn’t enough.
Bowne, 39, was stabbed to death in the driveway of her Patton Avenue home on Wednesday night.
Her former boyfriend, 45-year-old Michael Eitel, was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, was a fugitive Thursday, being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service task force.
Bowne’s death shocked her friends and neighbors, who described her as a bubbly, well-liked person. But her slaying also embittered some, who felt the system had failed to protect a woman in danger.
“She did absolutely everything she was supposed to,” said Denise Lovallo, a fellow hairdresser at O’Hara and Co. in Somerdale…
…Berlin Township Police Chief Leonard Check said Bowne applied for a gun license on April 21, and that she had inquired Monday about her request.
The application process typically takes two months or more as police collect information on the applicant, including fingerprints and reference checks. “We did not get the fingerprint information yet,” said Check.
If Bowne had lived in a civilized state where the government viewed residents as citizens to be protected instead of subjects to be lorded over, then she would have had her handgun more than a month ago, and would have had to time to become proficient in its use.
If Bowne lived in a state that respected her freedom, she would have been armed with a handgun with a standard-capacity magazine and premium quality defensive hollowpoint ammunition when she left her home. She would have stood a fighting chance.
There is your Liberal Utopia folks! This is what happens when Liberal, anti liberty politicians strip away basic liberties like, self-defense. Like I said Fuck New Jersey and frankly fuck every gun control cultists that supports draconian, statist laws like those in New Jersey!
Breaking tonight on CNN is the news that Pamela Geller was in fact one of the beheading targets of 26-year-old Usaama Rahim, a Muslim jihadi that police shot dead yesterday in Boston:
Usaamah Rahim, who was fatally shot after waving a military knife at law enforcement officers, was originally plotting to behead Pamela Geller, an activist and conservative blogger, law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday.
CNN host Erin Burnett gets Geller on the phone, and during the interview sites the Southern Poverty Law Center suggesting that Pamela Geller is the most visible and flamboyant figurehead of the anti-Muslim movement as they list her group as a ‘hate group’. She emphasizes the ‘hate group’ thing a couple of times, and then then asks Geller if she is stoking the flames of this ‘hate’ and if she relishes being the target of these attacks.
Talk about blaming the victim. Of course Geller responded by asking ‘who self promotes to get killed?’, pointing out the absurdity of the question.
Burnett also suggests in this interview that ‘two people died’ at Geller’s drawing Muhammad competition, as if to suggest they were bystanders who were victims of Geller’s hate or something, never mentioning that it was the terrorists themselves who died. Of course Geller corrected her.
