You will notice that the record shows that she hit him 6 out of 6?
A woman was called in front of a Texas grand jury for manslaughter
after she shot a mugger 6 times in the back as he was running away with her purse.
He grabbed the purse and ran, she had her hand on the gun in it, and was left with the revolver in her hand.
When asked by the grand jury why she shot the man 6 times in the back as he was running away,
she replied under oath:
"Because when I pulled the trigger the 7th time it only went click"

Good one samD

The sad truth is in real life she would be facing charges here in Texas

So I got a survey from the NRA and one of the questions says:

"Should the laws of Texas prohibit violent criminals and their survivors from suing you for damages if they are injured or killed while attacking you, a family member, friend or loved one? Yes / NO / No Opinion"

Well obvious the answer is Yes, but I was floored to even think this happens. Call me naive but is there really a trend where the good law abiding citizens are being prosecuted and ammo-restricted to keep them your family safe? Whats happening to this country?

Texas is being invaded from the South and we cant even put up a wall, and if we protect ourselves we go to jail?
Makes me sick to my stomach - We are no longer in control.

naive

We are in control, we need to stay focused on the voting we do, and pay attention to all details before we decide what our future holds for us. Even if we do all of this, and things do not go the correct way, we must stand up and instead of getting sick to our stomachs, we need to rise up and fight for our rights again from democratic and dictatorship rule that has been confusing and making people like you sick to your stomach.
Tell them "we will not go quietly into the night, we will rise up and take our constitution and fulfill its meaning for all of the people, not just parts of it, the entire thing the way it was before greedy politicians and lawyers decided to shred it and make it say what they feel is correct. Move out of our country and be a citizen somewhere else if you don't like our constitution how it is written.
It is for the people, by the people.
Not for the government by the government.
Wake the fuck up and revolutionize your future... Stop being naive

Gun Control= the theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

Mr. BagO'Donuts

Well dude you had me on your side up to the end of your statement. I am as others on this website are on the same side as you, true patriots. I do however think its much harder than what you suggest. I have a hard time thinking that the Jury's that rule in the favor of the criminals each day are all Nancy Pelosi supporters etc. For your information, I vote and vote very informed. Average law-abiding citizens are losing in many courtrooms because of lawyer technical crap. Its wrong and the things I spoke of didnt just happen in the last six months. If your so confident in your ways maybe you should run for office and show us how its done.
