Las Vegas, NV –-( News on 6-TV in Tulsa, Oklahoma reports this week (5/23/2016) a local woman shot at two men who broke into her house near I-44 and Garnett just after 9:30 p.m.

Tulsa, OK police said two men forced their way into a home on 120th East Avenue Sunday night.

The homeowner took matters into her own hands. She warned them she had a gun yet they continued towards her so she drew the gun up and shot several rounds at the suspects.

She wounded one of the suspects by shooting him in the chest. They turned and fled in a white four-door car they had left outside. That vehicle was later seen dropping the wounded suspect off at a hospital. He is in ICU in serious condition.

Police said the woman told them she didn’t know the men, leading them to believe it could be a random break-in.

She doesn’t regret moving into the neighborhood, saying it’s still a good place to call home.

“It doesn’t make me scared. It just makes me want to look out now,” she said.


A fine shoot, given the available time, she first warns the criminals off. Then she has a gun and the will to use it when they don’t heed the warning!

Hopefully the jerk survives so she doesn’t have to go through the stress of having killed someone. Our classes for Concealed Firearm Permits are now about 25% female.

Far too many victims have no chance because they are unarmed. Get a gun and get training!

To bad he wasn’t DRT, now obammy care will pay to fix him up…which means my taxes pay for that and to prosecute the garbage


Irwin,how do you know she would be stressed for killing this useless trash ? So now you’re a psychiatrist too ? The problem with the scum surviving is they would lie in court about what really happened. Dead men tell no tales.


Tex, evidently you’ve never been in that position. I have a friend who is a former Police Officer. He shot and killed two men in the line of duty, and he sees there faces in nightmares frequently. Several years ago, I had to pull my pistol on a large, violent, drunken, convicted felon who was going to attack me(a disabled person) I’m glad he thought better of it and backed off. I didn’t relish the thought of having nightmares about him. Walk a mile in another persons shoes.

I never lost any sleep over it.
Meanwhile back here in the world, the problem with scum surviving is that permanent injury is far more expensive than wrongful death. In retrospect maybe she should have gone with the .45.


Tex … please go take your meds. I think you have been up too late and it is starting to cloud your thinking.
