Wow. I'm so glad that the right person ended up dead.
I feel awful for the lady though, I cannot begin to imagine the psychological trauma she's going to have to deal with from this incident, not to mention what she experienced with the other robbery.
I love it, a single shot to the chest nips another crime spree at the bud!
What really caught my eye though was the fact it was a .22 that was used. Everyone usually knocks the .22LR as a potential self defense measure, but that sure makes me happy to hear how this ended!!! :mrgreen:
Bravo for the clerk! I hope and pray for her that this doesn't haunt her.
but this guy did not have to die. he could have been raised in a culture that taught him not to use fear to control others and that violence was not going to solve his problems. He could have been influenced by those arround him and raised in a loving, supporting home with family who cared for him. Society, controlled by a massive socialist movement and people like Jesse Jackson who harness and even encourage this young man's anger for their own political advantage are responsible for his death. Let it haunt them for their part in it
One point for reality, Zero points for government.
Brady Center for non violence is pretty much useless in a case like this, eh?
I can only imagine what the woman is going thru. It would be hard to live down.....But, this wasn't little Johnny next door.....
This was a thug. He was an animal that preyed on the helpless...and, how hard would it have been for the lady to live with what he was about to do to her...
You can place blame anywhere, but, the bottom line was, she did what she had to do to possibly save her own life...
I was very suprised that a single bullet in center mass from a .22 did the job...This guy was not small.
All in all, it was a bad situation but she did what she had to do...and the deserving person is on the floor with the outline drawn around them...
"Lott said the clerk had been victimized in one of two recent robberies at the same Days Inn and had gotten permission from her employer to carry a .22 caliber gun."
I am not positive but I don't think that she needed a CCW since she was on private property & had the owners permission. I am glad that she was able to defend herself. What would have happened if she had relied on calling 911 in case of emergency?
EDIT: I guess I should have read the next story before posting!
"The woman had been the victim of a prior robbery and had gotten permission from her hotel supervisor to carry a concealed pistol, Lott said.
?She did not have a concealed weapons permit, but you don?t need one on private property where you have permission,? he said."
