Yet another incident that demonstrates quite clearly why a firearm can be a woman’s best friend should she find herself in an abusive relationship, this one in Columbus, Ohio. In this case, the victim had to wrest the gun away from her attacker in order to stop him.
Police say a woman whose live-in boyfriend struck her in the head with a gun at an Ohio hotel fatally shot him when she got control of the weapon.
Columbus police have identified the man killed Thursday night at In-Towne Suites Extended Stay Hotel as 29-year-old Porfilio Salvador Hernandez.
Of course, Shannon Watts, the doyenne of disarmament, doesn’t believe that a good guy (or girl) with a gun has ever stopped a bad guy with a gun. So why would any civilian possibly need to own one? This, despite the fact that she used a chunk of Daddy Bloombucks’ cash to produce this perfect illustration of why a woman might want to have armed self defense as an option.
Homicide detectives say no charges will be filed for now against 27-year-old Raven Lynn Torres for a shooting that they say appears to be self-defense.
Maybe Ms. Torres could explain to Shannon and her fellow civilian disarmament advocates how it is that she’s alive today thanks to the use of a firearm. She’d already been pistol whipped by Hernandez. Who knows what else he would have done to her had she not been able to disarm him and use the gun to stop the attack? And this is hardly an isolated incident. More women successfully defend themselves with firearms every day.
Not that Shannon’s likely to listen. She tends to filter out any inconvenient dissenting opinions that don’t confirm her carefully crafted anti-gun message.
