Wednesday morning feel good stories

The first stop on our tour of safer places to live is Missouri;

The homeowner told police the three suspects broke in and shot at him, so he shot back.

No one was hurt in the shooting, and the three suspects ran off.

According to police, there were two male suspects and one female suspect.

More range time, but you’ve got the covered and concealed aspect of gunfights down pat.

On to Texas where dropping a dime (or a quarter, these days, I guess) could save some ammo;

A woman shot by her boyfriend who mistook her for a burglar has been arrested, according to LPD.

LPD said the woman, 34, was shot in early April when she broke into a home in the 3100 block of San Luis Street after hearing that her boyfriend was with another woman.

The article continues that she was served with a warrant for burglary the other day.

In Alabama, you need pay attention to where the muzzle of your weapon is pointed, especially when you’re confronted by the police, no matter which side of a dispute you’re on;

They say the woman’s estranged husband, Bradley Skinner, broke the glass out of a back door of the home to get inside. He had a pistol and large knife in his possession. Lisa has a protection order against Bradley.

Officers say Lisa armed herself with a shotgun then went into the garage. They say he followed her, then aimed his pistol at her. That’s when she fired the shotgun, hitting him in the chest and causing life-threatening injuries.

Police say they arrived on scene after the woman’s mother called 911 to report the home invasion and that officers heard the initial shots. They went to the garage where Lisa came out, still holding the shotgun. Officers commanded her to drop the gun, but they say she turned, pointing the weapon in the officer’s direction instead. The officer shot at her, hitting her in the hip.

The woman is expected to recover, but, the fellow she shot is in critical condition.

  1. Owning a weapon is a wise thing to do, but only if it is followed up with extensive range time. If one is not as familiar with his/her weapon as with a kitchen or shop appliance, the need to use it may end poorly, or even badly.

    Having a firearm for self defense is an intelligent decision, but SMART people get familiar with their guns and spend time on the range as well as in training classes.

    For Pete’s sake, NEVER point anything at the po-po! NEVER!! Not even your car keys.
