Heart-warming news from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The man who stabbed and cut up a married couple not long ago has been caught after he fled from a would-be victim's home.

Only, this time, the target was armed.

Great story - I guess Sarah Brady would rather have the woman sit down and negotiate with the knife-wielding crackhead... :rolleyes:

It would be better if she had the gun on her. What would happen if she couldn't get upstairs to retrieve the gun. Luckily, she could and did but next time she may not be so lucky.

Now, if the local judiciary don't let this bum out on bond, so that he can do the same again, the community might be better off for the experience, as the word might spread..

Maybe he'll pick your house next time, Alan! Then it won't be a concern anymore.

Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.

one more reason to keep the gun holstered even when at home in a supposed 'secure' setting.

I'd fight Saddam Hussein...

Gotta give that gal credit. Kept her wits about her, saved her child, herself and the badguy got all cut up when he dove through a window. :D
