Someone Show This To Michael Paymar

If this Atlanta woman had had a gun with only seven rounds in the magazine…

The woman was getting out of the shower when she was met by a strange man with a kitchen knife, police said. They said there was a struggle in the bathroom, and she fell in the tub. Police later identified the man as Israel Perez Puentes, a Cuban national who lived in Alpharetta.

“The male was armed with a kitchen knife, a struggle ensued between the two of them. She fell in the bathtub injuring herself,” Gwinnett police spokesman Edwin Ritter said.

The woman tried to fight the man off with a shower a rod, and he forced her into her bedroom, police said. They said she told her attacker she had money in the room. But she grabbed a .22-caliber handgun and shot the man nine times, police said.

Police said the man ran out of a back door and collapsed in the yard. He later died at the Gwinnett Medical Center. The victim, who was injured in the scuffle, was also taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Police have not released her name.

…she might very well know what a Thanksgiving turkey feels like.

If a thanksgiving turkey knows what it’s like to be raped and then stabbed.

Point being, there are times – and they are not uncommon – when seven shots just aren’t enough.

  1. Victim disarmers don’t care about the people they are trying to disarm. Paymar wants control. He’s feeling his DFL oats after this last election, Newtown, and NY leading the way on victim disarmament. I bet the legislative orcs’ strategy is to WAY overreach and hope that the pro-gunners in the legislature will give them some of what they ask for.

    *note correct usage of terminology

  2. I posted this to the wrong thread, reposted here.

    President Jimmy Carter got one thing correct: people have rights simply because they’re human. Those rights do not flow from government, they exist independent of government. Indeed, people form governments specifically to protect those human rights and the United States justly condemns nations whose governments fail of that essential purpose.

    The right to life is the most fundamental right, without which the others don’t matter. Having a right to be alive is useless without the right to keep oneself alive. The right to self-defense must extend not only to defense from individual criminals but also to defense from corrupt organizations including governments. When the Founders wrote extensively of the right of the people to keep and bear arms against tyranny, they fully expected ordinary citizens to have the firepower to resist their own government, as the Minutemen had resisted King George’s armies.

    The Second Amendment intended ordinary citizens to have the same weapons as their own military; else, how could ordinary citizens resist their own military? Hunting, home defense and skeet shooting are useful and popular by-products but they do not empower government to infringe the right of ordinary citizens to keep and bear military-grade arms.

    The pending legislation intending to ban military style firearms is unconstitutional. Those who deplore that fact should offer a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the Second Amendment as we repealed the 18th to end Prohibition. Any other tactic to subvert the Constitution is un-American.

    There, I said it. Now, gun-control advocates, show me by citation to persuasive authority that I am wrong. I double-dog dare you.

  3. I’ve got to wonder how much crime is deterred not just by the fact that the prospective victim is armed, but by the fact that the victim just might be able to keep the bullets coming long after their weapon is empty.

    Praying for this woman’s quick recovery, and thanks to her for keeping a criminal out of prison.

  4. +1 Joe. One thing that pisses me off to no end is when some d*ckhead has the audacity to claim 2A applies to the States and not the individual. The language to EVERY ONE of the original 10 amendments speaks of person, people, owner, etc.

  5. No doubt DG is hastily scribbling a 500 word piece that will do nothing to refute what Joe said.

  6. Mr. Paymar would no doubt express concern for the family of the poor immigrant who was only looking for a better life (in the woman’s house) and was cut down by a selfish member of the ruling class. That pampered panda cannot be swayed by anything, let alone logic.

    Paymar is pretty much parroting the NY model because it’s already been proposed and explained. I agree with Bill C.. I’m sure Paymar’s group will be happy to “settle” for less.

    Unfortunately, some on our side are already capitulating somewhat.

    The Sunday night character on 1130AM last night was willing to put up with “background checks” for the same reason we should not refuse a police search – “nothing to hide … that’ll show ’em”. The 1500AM crumudgeon (and stadium supporter) was also seeing the logic of people doing “honest transfers” by selling guns through dealers only, and Ann Coulter was deflecting the data that 40% of gun sales at gunshows are private.

    She felt obligated to opine that it was 4% or 5% at most. Don’t know where she gets that, but so what? Private transfers are “legal transfers” except maybe in GL, however she implied that they were a bad thing that was over-exaggerated.

    I’m sure everyone has some type of internal bargaining process as they consider the issues. That’s the strategy.

    The head of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) MN was supposed to be at the Obama love-fest today. Her point was that most mentally ill perople aren’t dangerous. They aren’t. However, she and NAMI are the progressive movement’s natural allies. I wonder who’ll blink first (unless Governor Dayton’s involved).

    I suspect that President Obama’s relationship with NAMI will be the same as Bill Clinton’s was with the National Organization of Women. Hope to hear soon.
