    And this is why I dont like Waiting periods .. In CA she would be in deep water ( 10 day waiting period )


    Also I wish more stuff like this would catch on Kentucky: Bill to allow temporary concealed carry for domestic violence victims for making emergency CCW stuff.....


    Good artical thanks !

    Thanks for sharing this. Great reminder. Yep, she should just have shot him--would make finding him a whole lot easier.

    Glad things worked out for her. I just hope she does some research.

    I don't have my CCW just yet, but I'm prettu sure we are an open carry state.
    While IN is an OC state, it is OC WITH permit.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Glad she's ok. What could have happened to her if she hadn't pulled it? But she had an evil gun and she wasn't raped or killed. Wished she shot him. So he couldn't do this to another woman that's not fortunate to have a firearm
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Yeah, the domestic violence help centers would be good to co-op with self defense/weapons training. The most dangerous time for women in abusive relationships are right when they are leaving(so they'd need some training/help before hand, many women do try and plan ahead) and after they leave when abusers stalk them for revenge. My little sister was murdered right when she was leaving an abusive boyfriend. 911 didn't help.

    If you are an instructor or self defense guru and looking for a little charity work, this group really needs you. If you have old cell phones you don't use, you can donate them to domestic abuse shelters where women can use them to dial 911. many of them have to leave w/ nothing but clothes they are wearing.

    Glad she is OK since she's already having some issues as it went down let's just hope the police get him off the streets.

    Look at the pictures of the door, a glaring observation. The cheap ass striker plates. A major false sense of security for renters. I'd definitely insist the landlord put a much more reinforced door frame and striker plates, maybe even a steel frame. She'd have good leverage on the landlord if she mentioned she is getting media requests about the crime. That would keep you much safer and buy you more time to react and more time for the cops to apprehend in progress. Enhanced apartment safety would be a good selling point for landlords as well.
