"He said 'don't shoot me again,"

http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2012/06/66-year-old_woman_who_shot_int.html



But Myles said by the grace of God she was able to get the case open. She walked back to the bedroom where the intruder was still counting money.

Myles said she still is flabbergasted that the man asked her not to shoot him again.

"I said you just came into my home and tortured me," she said. "You don't tell me what to do."

1. She shot someone over her property? Over money?

She could have ended the poor young man's life!

Bad! Bad toter!

9. Fail on all counts. Did you bother to read the piece?

First she shot an armed intruder
Secondly, she shot him because she was in fear of her life, not over money or property.
Thirdly, she is not a "toter".

She's a rude toter racist bloodthirsty cowboy who gets her jollies shooting people to protect he property when merely giving them a stern talking to with a firm voice would suffice.

A 66 year old woman ought to do just fine against a 19 year old.

Besides she's too old to hit anything (definitely not twice).

36. Because she's racist?

 

In another thread, a person older than her shot a robber in an internet cafe. A poster in that thread said it's probably because the old man is racist so she is probably a racist too(?) Maybe that poster will chime in and clarify if all old people that shoot robbers are racists.

she could have gone out to her garage, taken the front tire off of her bike, gone back in and thrown it at him, that way, the dirtbag wouldn't have been hurt too badly, and, as an added bonus, the cops could id him by the tire tracks on his clothes or face.

See the bandana, obviously a gang member. Tutu is covering her tats, probably put rumors of riches on the street to lure the poor disadvantaged youth into her web. He was close to finding her cocaine so she capped him. If not, why didn't she run out the backdoor to escape?

And why would they. Simple case of self-defense/home-defense.

Not a scared old white guy strutting down the street with a pistol on his hip.

that seems standard fare for the use of a firearm in self-defense.

Or saying that she only did this to compensate for her small penis.

/I guess this case shot holes in a bunch of anti-gun stereotypes.

Why would anyone have a problem with this?
The woman was defending her life in her own home. A universal, natural right. Not a civil or constitutional right. A primal right.
What stereotype does that shoot the holes in? People who take their guns on the street, maybe?

31. I don't have a problem with this

 

but others have used pretty much this exact scenario to "prove" that gun owners are all racist cowboys out to compensate for their small genitals.

There's another thread where a senior citizen shot at two thugs where one anti-gunner decided in complete absence of any evidence that the guy (an older white gentleman) was "probably" just waiting around for the chance to use a gun on some black kids.

ok . . .

Anti-gun nuts come out in droves to spew their stereotypes when the story matches what they want to hear (like if the shooter is a white guy or a male).

They do not admit that those stereotypes are false when the shooter is not white or male.

They need to be called out on their hypocrisy.

You are calling out people who either are not here or do not exist.
You are spewing stereotypes with comments like "Anti-gun nuts".

I don't see any in this thread. Do you?
What I do see is a bunch of guys searching for an invisible target to justify their carrying loaded guns around in public, which has ZERO to do with this thread.
