    Home defense gone wrong

    Police say home intruder wrestled gun away from woman, shot her - wave3.com-Louisville News, Weather & Sports

    Details a still a bit vauge, but looks like this is a what not to do story. She's lucky to be alive.

    Will post updates as I can.

    IMO, She should have never exited the house. Pointing a gun outside your home isn't always self defense, could easily be twisted to assault, or worse.

    Your thoughts?

    ...the man did not get into the house. A woman who lived there aimed a gun at the would-be intruder...the man was able to take control of the firearm.

    Wait wait wait... he didn't get in, but he was able to take her firearm?


    Something is fishy.

    Exactly why I thought she must have exited. Doesn't say so, but unless she met him at the window he was crawling through, it's the only explanation I can think of.

    Glad she is going to survive.

    That's a good lesson for us to have a plan for a home invasion, and going outside and confronting him / them is not in my lesson plan. The first goal in any self defense situation is survival and making smart decisions.

    Then again, when I get the big testosterone dump, I do stupid things. But by golly she's a woman, where did she get her testosterone

    Sounds like she wanted to wave a gun in his face and make a speech. Bought the BG a lot of time doing that.

    Yeah, it's fishy. Why shoot someone when they're no longer a threat, then run away. Maybe more details will be forthcoming.

    People shoot other people that aren't threats all the time. My guess is she got shot because the guy was mad she pointed a gun at him.

    Saying she left the house is making an assumption. This could have happened at the window, a doorway, or some other place where he was almost in the house but not yet there. I don't know what happened, I'm glad the lady is going to survive, I hope she learned that having a gun only helps if you're willing to use it.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.
