    Glad the woman was able to defend herself but can we say over penetration?

    It seems there are almost daily happenings of citizens needing to defend themselves, especially since December '11. I am thankful we have the right to defend ourselves and our homes and that our state does not prohibit our ability to do so.

    “I could’ve been getting off of work; that’s crazy,” said 19-year-old Justin Arnette. “It’s crazy. I didn’t think nobody would break into somebody’s house in this neighborhood because I’ve never had anything like that since we’ve been here.”

    you know you got nothing to print when you stup to this

    I've heard people say this so many times about local crime..."I didn’t think nobody would break into somebody’s house in this neighborhood because I’ve never had anything like that since we’ve been here.”, but it is the reason thai I choose to be armed whenever I can legally do so...especially at home.

    There are very few places anymore where you can go completely Condition White. SA and being prepared will improve your odds especially when in familiar locations (like your safe neighborhood). Glad the woman was able to take care of business.

    Especially THERE -- SW 51st in OKC? With the South Side Locos gang there and all the other low lifes, I am very surprised anyone there thinks it a "safe" neighborhood.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Arnette describes Stracener as a “nice” and “friendly” woman. It's good to see more and more women getting in touch with their frontier roots.

    Unless I am mistaken, that quote actually come from Robert Heinlein, the famous Science Fiction writer of the 50' & 60's..........

    I agree!!! I live in a suburb of OKC and that particular area has become known as the "barrio"!!!! It's been overrun by hispanic gangs and other undesirables!!! It makes me nervous just driving through the area (which I seldom do). In general, OKC and most of the burbs are relatively safe, but that area is not!!!!!.
