Anyone who thinks they can mess with a woman tending little ones is in for a rude awakening. Especially if the woman in question is armed, like Charlotte mom Samantha Bunce. dailymail.co.uk reports that Sam “was at home breast-feeding her four-month-old son Bentley when the intruders arrived on Tuesday morning. The men knocked on the front door, rang the doorbell and kicked in the door of her home east Charlotte, North Carolina.” Ms. Bunce took action . . .
The mother-of-two quickly took her son to the bedroom and placed him in the crib before grabbing her gun.
When the men opened fire at her in the stairwell, she then fired back from the bedroom door.
Her husband Paul, a medical technician, told WSOCTV: ‘I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her.’
Bunce was shot several times and is recovering in a hospital. The baby wasn’t injured.
It was her military training that allowed her to remain calm during the gunfight, he added.
Wait. What? I hardly think Ms. Bunce calmly shot the intruders as she calmly took two slugs. And while I respect anyone who serves this country in the military, if she told stock still in the stairwell (a.k.a., the”funnel of death”) as she shot (as suggested in the animation above), someone needs better training. Lest we forget, the bad guys landed shots. Ms. Bunce did not.
Still, result. The baby’s fine, Ms. Bunce is in stable condition and one of the bad guys has turned himself in.
