    I just read(e) this article...I wonder if the woman missed and hit the other woman or there was over-penetration because she was so close to the perp.

    Good shot though. The perp won't be chocking women anymore.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    He won't be doing anything anymore, thank God. In this day and age, protective orders are a joke, especially with someone like this. Glad the 17 year old had the prescence of mind to pick up the gun and use it!

    .357 > Protective Order

    Protective order is good, get your paperwork ducks in a row, but in the end:

    .357 > Legal paperwork.

    Like it said in the article, the ex boyfriend ultimately chose his own fate.

    In my lifetime, I've had to deal with quite a few women who had abusive husbands/boyfriends. I've told every single one of them the same thing; get the means to defend yourself and use it.

    I've heard the "But I love him/he loves me" BS a million times. No, he doesn't love you if he is willing to hurt you. If you don't act to stop him, you will wind up another statistic and he will go on to abuse someone else.

    I will also tell you that, if he will hit a woman, he ain't no man.

    Kudos to the young mother for defending her aunt (and most probably herself and her baby) from this waste of skin. I hope she can move on past it.
