    Home owner 1, burglars 0...

    On 2/12/10 the Albuquerque CBS affiliate channel 13 reported that during a home invasion one of the suspects was shot in the head by the lone female home owner, and was in critical condition at a local hospital. Police were searching for the other suspects and the home owner was not hurt.

    Seems like head shots for BGs are costing tax payers a lot of money. Probably cost tax payers $80,000 to stop a home invasion. EMTs are driving way to fast.

    Dont blame our driving, blame the police for being too quick to clear the scene!

    Nice shot

    Maybe 1 shot to center mass and 2 to the head would save us more money.

    At least the law abiding homeowner is ok. Good on her!

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    I don't mean to be insensitive or complain or whine, but maybe she needs more range time. Yeah, like I'm one to talk. Good job, girl.

    Here is the link. The police are now investigating the poor woman because the burglar was found shot on the front lawn. New Mexico has not been very forgiving of armed citizen's protecting themselves as of late.

    So the dirtbag got shot, wandered outside and collapsed on the lawn. Only response needed from LE are some high-fives.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    maybe it was a large caliber hand gun and he was "propelled" to the lawn, also could of been the shot fired the "buddy" grabbed his friend to try and run, and moved him to the lawn a bit.
