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.
