Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Happy Ending Edition

After a week that’s been noteworthy for more than its share of downbeat gun-related news, it’s nice to close things out with a heartwarming story, right? Especially the kind of warm fuzzy you only get when a woman dispatches a wanna-be rapist to the second circle of hell. From “[T]he shooting Saturday occurred when 33-year-old Taos [NM] resident Lawrence Sandoval forced his way into [an un-named] woman’s home. She told deputies that she believed he followed her home from a gas station…According to deputies, the woman says Sandoval grabbed a knife, put the knife to her chin and told her to take off her clothes. The woman told deputies she then reached under her pillow, grabbed a loaded gun and shot him.” Larry won’t be bothering any more women. Ever. No one from the Brady Campaign or Mayor Bloomberg’s office could be reached for comment.
