Why I carry a handgun for protection, Vol. 32

So that when two feral youths armed with screwdrivers ever force their way into our apartment to rob and attempt to rape the occupants even after they cooperate with the thugs (which is precisely what recently happened to a law-abiding couple in Tulsa, Oklahoma), our firearm will also be readily accessible to defend against such an unprovoked attack:

"Police say a woman had just entered her apartment when two men forced their way inside and demanded money. 

The suspects were armed with screwdrivers and demanded money.  After the victim gave them money, they told her to take her clothes off but she refused.

The commotion awoke the woman's boyfriend who came out of the bedroom and began struggling with the two intruders. 

Police say the woman then got a handgun out of her purse and shot both intruders."

Quite accurately, it seems.  One feral youth is deceased and the other is in critical condition with head and stomach wounds.  Too bad for them.

The local cops are already correctly calling this an obvious case of justified self-defense.  We imagine the rate of home invasions in the immediate area will shortly be nosediving.
