A neighbor of an Alabama woman saves her life by shooting a rapist/home invader in the chest. This great article by BearingArms.com outlines a tragic story, while it ended in the death of a violent perpetrator, could have been a lot worse.
A woman’s apartment was kicked in by three thugs and ransacked. She was raped and brutally beaten by one of the thugs, whom by some quick thinking, she convinces to take her to a near by neighbor’s apartment where she stores her valuables/money. Little did the monster know, the neighbor was a gun owner. Long story short, he shot and killed the rapist saving the woman’s life.
BearingArms.com makes some great points about gun possession and ownership which could have, possibly, save the woman from the brutal attack.
The first is that if the victim was able to access an operational firearm before the door could be breached, she might have had a decent chance of engaging the home invaders as they attempted to enter her room, stopping the sexual assault before it took place.
We don’t know if she simply didn’t have a gun, or if she had one but could not access it in time. It is our recommendation that if you are legally permitted to have firearms, that you should keep one in a keypad-operated or biometric safe that you can access quickly in emergencies, along with a tactical flashlight of at least 150 lumens. Temporarily blinded bad guys are easier to deal with.
The second observation we’d note is that the victim apparently took her rapist directly to someone that she either knew was armed, or suspected was armed. We don’t think this was an accident, and we’ll be interested to see if that detail becomes clear and released to the media as the investigation continues.
