You think she's glad she kept her gun?

By Bobby Eberle

With the liberals freaking out over additional gun control measures, one of the most ridiculous statements came from Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee. The congresswoman from Texas said that people should just come forward and turn in their guns. I bet she would certainly get the vote of the home invader who was recently shot in the face by a woman protecting her home and children.

Last month, Jackson Lee spoke out and said, "I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns." Just think of what might have happened if the 37-year-old mother of two had heeded Jackson Lee's advice.

As reported by The Atlanta Journal Constitution, the mother and her two children were at home on Friday, when they heard a knock on the door. The person at the door was persistent, and the mother sensed something was wrong. She called her husband while she and her children hid in the closet.

The intruder had forced his way into the three-story residence on Henderson Ridge Drive with a crowbar, authorities said. He allegedly rummaged through the home, eventually working his way up to the attic office.

“He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” said Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman, who relayed the woman’s narrative to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He asked that her name be withheld.

The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater was still conscious.

The husband, Donnie Herman, labeled his wife a hero. The newspaper reported that "one of his deputies, impressed with the woman’s resolve, told the sheriff she had handled her first shooting better than he had."

But is this story sweeping the nation? No. And as Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) noted in a press release, "there is virtually no coverage of self-defense uses every day."

"Press coverage of justifiable gun use in self-defense is almost invisible," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, "yet firearms are used in successful self-defense situations hundreds, if not thousands of times every day. It is disingenuous to talk about crime without mentioning the lives saved because an intended victim was armed.

"We know that hundreds of thousands of lives are saved in this country every year because someone had a firearm," he continued. "In most cases, a shot is never fired, but the display of a gun sends criminals running."

But Sheila Jackson Lee and other left wingers want to grab the guns. How do you think the mom would have done against the intruder? Do you think criminals are going to turn in their guns?

People on the left seem to get confused over why police officers carry guns. It's not to protect you. It's to protect themselves! They offer no protection at all until they are called and get on the scene. Luckily for this family, the mother didn't have to wait until police showed up, and we have one less criminal roaming the streets.

    Shelia Lee if she could get the Congressional Black Caucus to get the people they represent to turn all their guns, that would be a great start

    and yes you are right , the CBC is racist

      Politicians are NOT our leaders! Get this through your heads, people. They are our REPRESENTATIVES. They were sent to Washinton to represent OUR will and OUR wishes. In essence, they are to follow OUR lead.

      Remeber… ours is a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” WE ARE OUR OWN LEADERS!

      Until we change this mind-set, and quit treating these boneheads like the elites that they believe themselves to be, they will continue to do as they please… and is in their own interests. To hell with “The People”.

      It should be embarrassing for Lee to take this stance when Texas has some of the most sensible registration and carry laws in the Nation. She knows darn well that lives are saved everyday in TX because someone is carrying and the perps never know who it is.

      It just shows how bright the people of Houston are to send such a bonehead, cast-iron, illiterate byatch representative to DC to represent them. But then again, maybe she does represent those like her.

      I will give people like Jackson-Lee, Obama, Chucky Schumer, and Diane Feinstein a modicum of respect regarding their opinion on gun control when they voluntarily forgo all their secret service protection, private transportation, and walk the streets just like every other American subjecting themselves to same risks that every other American faces in everyday life. If they do this, then and only then will I give credence to their disarmament positions. We all know that this will never happen. Do as I say not a I do!

      I’ve been to many events with Rep. Lee. She does NOT always have bodyguards. She’s out and about in Houston on her own many times. What I need a gun for is protection for so many of these commenters that seem to have a lot of hate in their hearts for anyone who might be little different from them. I don’t feel I need a GUN to protect me from my government, liberals. I certanily do not need one to threaten others, or making up stories to justify why I may have shot them, while I was chasing them down the street! There has to be a middle of the road compromise on gun control. Many of those in law=enforcement would LOVE to see more control. What we HAVE to do is make it difficult for the mentally ill and criminals to obtain guns in the first place. I’m all for that. But I certainly am NOT for taking guns away from those who enjoy gun-related hobbies and protecting one’s home and family.

      wmaceo:

      While you are right that Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (my rep, so very sad to say) does not parade around with armed guards all of the time, (I have seen her several times, sans guards). This is the so very bright bulb genius that asked on the House Floor, in a most serious way, if the Mars Rover had photographed the flag that Neil Armstrong left there! Please beam me up Scotty!

      Her take on Vietnam is more than hilarious. Both North & South Vietnam living, working together…bla bla bla. Were you there for that?

      I doubt that you could get ANYTHING from her explaining The Bill of Rights and just why the SECOND Amendment. Zip! For that matter, I doubt many in the House & Senate could either. And the same for the so called President and, gag, “Constitutional Scholar”.

      Further, Representative Alan West dared to out Shelia and others, as COMMUNISTS. What a proud roll call for Shelia to be on. What a useful idiot, as the Communists would and do say.

      An armed populace is NOT about hunting, or hobbies, or home security. If you bother to read what The Founders said of The People being armed, it was to insure a Free State, to thwart any tyranny. And I have yet to meet one cop who would “LOVE” to see more gun control. That is a Leftist/Communist LIE!

      More fun stuff about Shelia, as such idiots are a wellspring of the bizarre. She is a tyranny unto her self, yelling and calling names to her LOWLY staff. Are you LOWLY staff? I pity you! Stuff does get around in Houston about this tyrant, by people around her.

      And I will agree hardily with you wmaceo, that the mentally ill should be kept away from guns. My problem is that the mentally ill are FREE RANGED in our society, let loose…

      Adam Lanza, and the curious drugs that he was taking, well this fine geek, nut job, should have been long ago institutionalized! Period! Same with the shooter in Arizona, and Colorado. But NO! We must have compassion, understanding… Well if that is the case, just face that fact that you will have hideous incidents, as the Insane RUN the Asylum of America.

    Shelia Jackson Lee is probably one of the most illiterate people elected to any government office. The girl couldn’t pour piss from a boot if the instructions were written on the heal. I’m sure she can’t read, but is only able to shout obscenities and cuss word at her Aids. Ms. Lee is known to be in Washington D.C. as a very nasty person.

    Information for the Lady with the 38: use hollow point ammo. Most bullets are copper coated these days, it keeps the lead from oxidizing and causing damage to the guns. Normal bullets with copper coating, are very penetrating going cleanly through the perp and causing minimum damage. Hollow point ammo, on the other hand, even if copper coated, expand on contact and rarely go all the way through the perp unless you are using a magnum form of ammunition. Consider why you would ever shoot at another human being. If I was in such a situation that called for shooting someone, it would be a dire case of self protection. Normally waving the gun will have the effect of either deterring the perp or causing him to try to get the gun away or to try to shoot first. In any case you want to put the perp out of action ASAP. Not every woman can handle a heavy caliber gun, but hollow points will do the job even in a small caliber.

      I use “Federal Premium HydraShok”s in my 9mm when at home;they are perfect for home protection and close quarters use,because they won’t go through the attacker ,but unlike the hollow point,in the event you miss the attacker they won’t tear through a wall and wound an innocent. Mine were $23.00 a box here,but they’re probably cheaper on some places,more in others. A great investment for the price.

      My mistake, by waving the gun, sometimes, when distance allows, showing a gun deters some criminals. Once you start pulling the trigger, you need to be able to finish the job. Those HydraShoks look good. I wonder what the Government developed for air marshals. Obviously you don’t want a round that can penetrate the airplane’s cabin.
      No mention in the story if she called 911 when the perp broke in to her house, and how long it took the Police to arrive. Obviously a good bullet arrives much faster than the police do.

      sparkyva,

      I’m not trying to get into an argument here and have been thinking about this since read the story a few days ago. I have to agree and disagree with you. I agree on the hollow points for expansion and limited penetration, but not knowing what barrel length she had, I’d reserve judgement as many hollow points won’t develop the higher velocity needed to expand from a “snubby”. I understand they do have some that are made for shorter barrels, but have no practical experience with expansion tests in gel with different length barrels and .38 Spl ammunition.

      If she hit him 5 times in the face and neck with any .38 Spl round from, what I assume, was point blank range, she apparently grazed him, passed obliquely through a cheek, throat muscle or some other soft tissue, missing the eyes, carotid artery, jugular vein, larnyx, etc. If she had FMJ, they would have had a better chance of penetrating his cranium and killing him. The military has been doing a pretty good job with ball ammo for decades as you well know. I’m a firm believer in the best gun for personal defense is the one you have with you a the time and nobody wants to take half a dozen rounds from a .380 as demonstrated by that aggressive old timer in Florida a while ago.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMZbW2Q92MM

      This would be a good refutation of the Leftist’s argument against high capacity magazines though. If she nailed him with 5 out of 6 from a revolver, that would give her an 83% hit rate. That would have been 8 out of the 10 she would have had with a Glock 26 or 14 our of one of their full size models with a 17 round magazine. If nothing else, he would have died from blood loss as a result of multiple traumatic perforations.

      She must have been rattled as hell, had impaired hearing and traumatized children to deal with so she had a good excuse for forgetting the rule about pulling the trigger until it goes “click” and then reloading thereby saving the taxpayers the cost of trial, incarceration until he got out for the 7th time, and tried pulling that **** again and again until he ran into someone who greeted him with a 12ga. costing the taxpayers no more than the cost of a pine box and cremation.

    At last report, that perpetrator. probably a choir boy, was still alive in public funded intensive care. Ergo, that woman needs to spend more time on a shooting range. And possibly her husband needs to purchase more effective ammunition.

    Note that the classic .45 cal Colt automatic, of 1911, was developed because the mlitary found that the .38 was inadequate to stop madmen.

    Our Pravda Media and Politicians Silent On San Antonio Shooting:
    “On Sunday, 2 days after the CT shooting, a man went to a restaurant in San Antonio to kill his X-girlfriend. After he shot her, most of the people in the restaurant fled next door to a theater. The gunman followed them and entered the theater so he could shoot more people. He started shooting and people in the theater started running and screaming.
    It’s like the Aurora, CO theater story plus a restaurant! Now aren’t you wondering why this isn’t a lead story in the national media along with the school shooting? There was an off duty county deputy at the theater. SHE pulled out her gun and shot the man 4 times before he had a chance to kill anyone. So since this story makes the point that the best thing to stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun, the media is treating it like it never happened. Only the local media covered it. The city is giving her a medal next week. Just thought you’d like to know.”

      Current day, PRAVDA, no longer an arm of the Communist State, as that no longer exists, clearly calls out the so called Liberals, as COMMUNISTS. They should know a Commie when they see them. Even Putin is amazed at the brazen Free Ranging Communists in America.

      REP. Selia Jackson Lee was on some official Communist list here.

      It is so cute, this name game. Alter the name so as to not upset the dumbed down Sheeple. Even when the American Communist Party endorses Obama, the Sheeple kept on grazing in their consumer–Nanny State utopia.

      Come on Shelia, come on out of the Comfy Word Closet!

      PS: PRAVDA is now, a hoot to read. FAR better than so much of the American Press which reads like the old Soviet PRAVDA! Back in Soviet days, our teacher made us read the RED Commie Rag, in Russian, to torture us I am sure. It has changed from night to day.

    One of the most troubling things in this article is the fact that, once again, the mainstream news is not reporting the cases in which lives were saved because the homeowners had legal weapons, and used them to protect themselves and others. Since we know the news will never report anything that doesn’t fit their agenda, why not develop ads, using the people who have successfully defended themselves and their children, telling their true stories? The only way to beat the slanted news providers is to ignore them and start publishing the real news whenever and however we can. One would think the gun manufacturers and the NRA would be all over this. Stop playing the “guilty victim” and get the facts out there. Soccer moms are arming themselves and taking gun safety classes, and many of them want armed resource officers in schools. Instead of shying away from this new interest in self-protection and the protection of our children, we should be helping people to become responsible gun-owners and home defenders.

A group of grown men were breaking into the home of a very old blind man who was confined to a wheelchair. The police had been called a number of times, but seemed incapable of protecting him and seemingly those invading his home thought a blind man, even one armed with a shotgun, posed no threat to them. The picture in the paper showed only a doorframe totally shredded on both sides and top with the statement that one of the burglars was standing in the doorway when the blind man fired his old 8 gauge muzzle loader. The Oregonian never said what type of sickos would tease a crippled, blind old man in his own home, but the picture certainly left a message for this type of person and the condition of the body in the middle of a shot pattern 4 feet in diameter was left to the viewers imagination.

    I don’t remember reading about any other old, crippled blind men being teased in their home, so i suppose this picture did actually serve t deter this type of home invasion.

    My Sheriff told me that if someone came on my property they were safe. If they came into my home I could shoot them. If they fell outside, I was to drag them back into the house, and then I would be safe. If I had been present the four times I was robbed I would have been a racist. They were all black men. What can you do about that ?

    The way I understand it, the school where the Obamas have their beautiful (and I do mean that sincerely) children enrolled have nine (9) armed guards on duty at all times regardless of who is in attendance.

    It doesn’t surprise me at all that rabid liberals would subject innocent, law abiding citizens tot possible public scrutiny by having the concealed weapons permit holders’ names published and/or turn in their weapons yet they (our liberal friends) would be the first to protect those currently on prescription medication for mental health reasons…you know, the ones we really SHOULD be looking out for.

    Maybe, just maybe we should have a national data base to share that prescription medication for mental health info with firearms dealers when someone submits a background check as a prospective firearms purchaser.

    Hold the phone! D. Feinstein of California will submit legislation in the coming congress to deem anyone who has EVER been prescribed drugs for psychiatric reasons “unfit” and illegal to own firearms of ANY type.

    Naaah, we know that’ll never happen.
    Because a third of the nation is already on some sort of drug or another for some sort of mental problem whether real or imagined and I’m betting even money most of them are democrats.

    Hey, maybe all prospective voters should be subjected to the same type of background check including mental heath status/prescription drug use for mental health.
    A process like that may return a semblance of sanity to the electorate as a whole.

    Would that be unfair to our liberal brethren?

    It may be the end of the democrat party as we know it!

      Well for one, it is racist to forbid dead people to vote. Second, you are suppressing the vote by only allowing one vote per voter. Third, every mass shooter I have read about in recent times could be classified by their beliefs as liberal, so if you go after the crazy’s and the criminals, you are a racist bigot because half of the violent criminals in America are black (FBI statistics), and most convicted felons vote democrat when they can get away with it. If you even consider trying to stop crime, murder and mayhem, you must be a racist, a bigot, a hater, and a conservative. Get used to it!

    Democrats desperately want gun control. But not because they are concerned about the killing of innocent people. They realize that it is not the gun that goes around shooting people, it’s the person pulling the trigger. The left has been trying for 50 years now to turn our country into a communist nation. They are slowly succeeding, especially with the election of Barack Hussein Obama. They know eventually the American people are going to rebel. Millions of angry citizens will end up in Washington D.C. To stop this revolution they know they must take the guns from every innocent American household and turn them into a defenseless bunch against the government. That is the very reason for the 2nd Amendment. To protect ones self from our own government. This is going to be their order of business for 2013. Confiscation of guns from households will become their number one agenda. Obama knows the German playbook very well and many of his actions since becoming president bear this out. So to all you democrats out there who voted this man back in, you will not be exempt. He will go after your guns to!

    “Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.”

    Jackson Lee is a disgrace to Texans with her liberal rants. She needs to move to NY or CA to be with her friends. Texans will always have their treasured weapons for sport and self defence. It may be necessary as we may have to be ready for another 1776 event. Remember the Alamo. US Navy vet, 1966-1969, Hospitalman, Corpsman, FMF, Pharmacist Mate; the “Big E”, USS Repose, USS Lexington.

      good for Mom! Only thing she should have done different was to make sure this ***** was dead before she quit shooting. That way she wouldn’t have to worry about tax money going to get him well, tax dollars to throw his ugly self in jail and house him for a few short years until they let him out on the streets to repeat his crimes, and yes, now she might have to worry about him coming back to make her pay for hurting him. Should have ended it right there, Mom.

    Sadly, it’s likely the home invader will find some ambulance chasing pettifogger and sue the woman saying she used excessive force in shooting him 5 times.

    We need to vote these morons out of office. ‘We the people’ determine the laws of the land not these idiots we mistakenly elected to ‘REPRESENT’ us. Until we wake up and let them know we don’t like their way of thinking, that their days in office are numbered unless they abide by OUR wishes than we can kiss our beloved country goodbye.

    People like Jackson-Lee need to turn in their high school diploma for all they have ever learned in life is racism and entitlements. These are all the tools she has ever used to tear at the heart of America. She, like Obama clearly don’t have a complete grasp of the protections of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights!
