    A Seattle mother of four was fatally stabbed early today despite a court protection order against her knife-wielding ex-husband.

    The 33-year-old victim was stabbed nearly two dozen times while attending a birthday party about 1 a.m. at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall in the 9100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South.

    The 39-year-old assailant burst into the hall, grabbed the victim and slashed her with a large knife, witnesses told police. The weapon was recovered at the scene.

    A 32-year-old Kent man who was at the party pulled a hand gun and shot the suspect who later died at Harborview Medial Center.

    Police spokeswoman Renee Witt said the party guest had a concealed-weapons permit. She said he likely won't face charges since he acted to prevent further harm.

    Another partygoer who tried to save the victim suffered minor cuts. He drove himself to Virginia Mason Medical Center and was later released.

    Although identities had not been formally released this evening, court records indicate that the victim and 39-year-old assailant obtained a court separation March 30 of this year.

    Court records also show that the attacker had a previous record of violence including multiple counts of assault in April this year.
    It looks like he'll be good to go as far as criminal charges go, but hopefully he won't get hit w/ a civil lawsuit...

    Great example of why a law abiding citizen with a gun is a great benefit to society. Kudos to him for swift and effective action. Unfortunately, the woman had no chance from the goof with a knife.

    With regard to civil liability, a pending billl in the Ohio legislature, HB264/SB184, would preclude a defender who used deadly force from being sued. I'm pretty sure this bill would cover a situation as desribed above.

    This bill is the result of the NRA's efforts to change state laws to upgrade Castle Doctrine protections and to provide immunity from civil prosecutions for people who use deadly force in self-defense. The Buckeye Firearms Association and NRA are pushing hard to get the bill passed and deserve kudos.

    Support NRA nationallyand BFA in Ohio.

    Too bad he didn't stop that idiot sooner.

    I wonder how bad the unarmed guy was cut up by this psycho.

    Knife control now!
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
