MIDWEST CITY — A woman who told police she shot and killed one intruder and wounded another this morning appeared to be acting within her rights under the "Make My Day" law, Midwest City Police Chief Brandon Clabes said.
Police found one man dead in a house at 9313 NE 14 and captured a juvenile with a gunshot wound about a block and a half north of the house, Clabes said. The woman told police the intruder she wounded fled the house after he was shot.
I am *definitely* not a fan of posting the damn address of the victim here; this report goes one better and POSTS A DAMN MAP OF THE AREA. Great. Now the family and friends of the goblin that was killed know exactly where to go... Minor rant aside, THIS is EXACTLY why those that want to take away our firearms can go to hell. Two men kick in a door to find a woman with two small children. What do you suppose would have happened if she had not had a firearm?
This story could have gone so horribly wrong I don't even like to think about the possibilities. Instead, we have one dead goblin, one wounded - who if there is any justice will face homicide charges if there's any "commission of a crime" laws in place. Because this young mother had access to a firearm - and the fortitude to use it - the outcome is a much happier one. Sure, there's some dry cleaning involved, but it's a helluva lot better than another possibility with 2 men on one woman with kids...
Dead Goblin Count: 78
That is all.
Story sent to me by JP and Jennifer - thanks you two!
don't forget, they called it the "Make my day" law. NOT what the law is actually named...
Seriously, does the Dirty Harry quote seem that scary to people? I don't mean anti-gun people, I mean regular people who read and watch the news.
"Police found one man dead in a house at 9313 NE 14" - Only one way this could be better:
"Police found one man dead in a house at 3913 NE 14" Sorry, I have a fondness for S&W's single-stack euro-pellet popper. One is on my "must have" list just after a S&W 40-40.
"Make my day" my eye. This woman just had the worst day of her life. My sympathies to her and her children.
I love stories like this. Especially when it involves women protecting themselves and their loved ones.
Good for her. I hope she gets the counseling she will likely need to deal with the fact that - right as it was - she did kill someone. Butch is right, worst day of her life.
And thank goodness it turned out the way it did.
Gee, funny how the comments are disabled for this article, and the second one that only lists the address as the 9300 block w/ no map......
who if there is any justice will face homicide charges if there's any "commission of a crime" laws in place
Indeed such a law does exist. Felony murder is Murder 1 here in Oklahoma.
