    Good, but could be better, news.

    Remember the woman who emptied her revolver at the perp, who then got up, walked out, and drove off?

    The perp got 10 years... It's a start... But at least he's in jail.

    A short excerpt from the article:

    Slater was shot by the 37-year-old working mom as she hid, along with her 9-year-old twins, in an attic crawlspace after the intruder forced his way into her home with a crowbar. When Slater discovered them, she responded with six bullets from her .38 automatic revolver, missing once.
    WOW! ... an automatic 38 revolver .... I WANT ONE!

    I can see it now ... pull the trigger once and hold, and it just keeps shooting, cycling the cylinder 'round -n- 'round

    Jeeeeeezzzzeeeeeee

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    Now, just you wait a minute... This is bad reporting... It's a semi-automatic revolver... One trigger pull for each round fired... After six shots, you have to change the clip... Don't you know nothin' ?
