We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

Well done, one less idiot in the world.
Good for her and I'm sorry that she will have to deal with having killed a man. I hope she has a resilient personality.

You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.
She didn't kill a man IMO. She killed an animal. Good riddance. Hope she deals with it however.
She done exactly what she needed to do ; )

Good for her for doing what she had to do. He was apparently one of those idiots that doesn't know how to move on and leave things alone. Looks like his non violent personality was turning into a violent abusive personality. Hope everything works out for her and her (aunt was it?). Hope they don't let this turds death bother them.
Chalk another one up for the .357

I hope the teen recovers from the traumatic event.
Bravo Zulu for her taking the fight to the piece of crud who ruined thier entire day with his stupidity.

Boyfriend/girlfriend, eh? Sounds like the man was deluded and instead kept returning to his target's house ... three times too many.That boyfriend, John Sharp, went to his girlfriend's house three times Thursday. All three times, police were called. It was after the third time that he was shot and killed.
As suggested, apparently there is now one less idiot to contend with. Condolences and thoughts to the people involved, who now have to deal with the aftermath of stopping such a person.
Lunatic legislators will claim she killed someone and that there could have been a number of other ways to handle it. Of course, she did the old telephone trick, calling police to assist in the ejection and warning of an apparently violent person. And the fact the idiot kept returning proves how effective in protecting her such calls were. They didn't keep him away. The "target" person, the "girlfriend," knew better. She knew for a fact that he was emotionally capable of harming her. No legislator is going to ever craft a legal solution that can physically protect a person from inbound violence as this woman experienced. When it comes to it, NOTHING can take the place of one's own ability to mount an effective defense at the moment crime reaches out to touch us. There is no substitute. Fortunately, she knew that well in advance. Smart. Kudos to her for surviving what is almost certain to have been extreme violence directed toward her.
Something tells me that he was very likely either drinking,or drugging,or both,you can't rationalize with somebody under the influence

"The teenage girl grabbed a .357 revolver yelled at Sharp to leave her aunt alone. When he rushed toward her she fired two shots, striking Sharp. Her infant was in a baby carrier on a couch in the same room. "
Never rush someone who is pointing a gun at you!
And a quote from "Chase"
"You never really know someone until you've seen their mug shot"
At the time of the arrest Sharp was "aggressive and violent," and became more agitated while at the Weber County Jail. He was booked at 11:05 a.m. for investigation of criminal mischief, interfering with arrest and evading officers.
Sharp was released at 5 p.m. Thursday after posting bond, agreeing to the provisions of a no-contact order and assurances that he had family and a place to go.
Total system failure. This is what makes me want to slap a progressive when they advocate paperwork vs. arming onesself.
