Legally Armed Woman Takes Out Her Violent Attacker In Self Defense

 June 22, 2022

Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many dispute or ignore the fact that nearly all armed assailants are stopped by someone with a gun. The most surefire way to equalize a violent situation is for the victim to be legally carrying a firearm.

All of the arguments prevented by anti-second amendment protesters are sketchy to begin with, but they altogether ignore the fact that most good people with guns who stop a crime do so without pulling the trigger. However, when self defense requires lethal force, the victim is better off having the ability to

A Des Moines woman who was violently assaulted while grocery shopping is grateful she was able to legally carry a firearm for self-defense purposes. The unprovoked attack came out of nowhere when she was pushing a cart full of groceries. The attacker blindsided her, beat her, and put her in a headlock.

The victim pulled out her legally owned firearm and fire one round in self-defense. The bullet struck the assailant in the leg before ricocheting into a bystanders foot. The attacker ceased attacking after the shot and was arrested for assault causing injury.

The attacker, a woman, was previously involved in a violent incident with the victim. However, Police have confirmed that this attack was unprovoked. It appears unlikely that the victim who fired the shot will face criminal charges.

"Iowa law allows for the use of reasonable force to stop someone from hurting you, or someone else and that includes deadly force under certain circumstances,... There’s a statute that says that a person who reasonably uses force as authorized by that chapter is immune from criminal or civil liability for any damages caused in the exercise of that force."

Defense attorney Katherine Sears

Of course, the mainstream media and gun control activists will be quiet on this one. However, it is an just another example of a good person with a gun stopping a violent assault.

  1. I don't believe in gun violent she did what right she didn't try kill her attack she wanted to get off
    by shooing her in the leg. That's okay but killing is not what I would do.

    1. As someone, who has carried guns for over 25 years, I believe that I am qualified to comment. The individual situation and assessment of the threat posed would dictate your response. This is what the training gives you...a more accurate picture and the ability to avoid the use of the firearm, altogether
      You don't always have the option to shoot someone in the leg. If avoidance fails and you have to shoot, you shoot to stop the attacker's threat. 9 mill rounds do not always stop the assailant with one shot and if they retain a deadly weapon, your options are limited.

      1. The leg would NOT be where I would shoot him but he would be having a having a " best friend "....between the knees and torso anymore......don't kill but make them stop what they are doing ?

    2. Emma, I would not plan to kill someone if they attacked and I feared for my life or one of family or loved one BUT we honestly never know what our reaction would be. I say I would not kill, not my nature but I bet our fear would over come that ??

  2. The anti gun people will never get any traction on their wishes to stop our use of the second amendment. Too many people have had guns far too long. Get a congress with enough gumption to let each state enforce their gun-laws. Nobody needs the Feds to tell us how to handle our weapons.

    1. The bill is already circulationg in Congress- released last night - the first step to disarm us, the "red flag" bill. Anyone they don't like, gets listed for no reason other than the DEMONrats & RINOs don't like you. You know, you disagreed with their CRT or men competing on womens' teams or LGBTQalphabet whatever is against God's word you're a danger, no guns for you, not even the ones you have.

      1. Do not worry. After the midterms, a lot of these silly notions by the far left will be removed.

        1. If the midterms are uncheated and legitimate. They got away with a bogus election once and will probably try again.

          1. Yeah, Hitler made sure the guns were taken from the populace too, remember what happened there ?! We can't allow this to happen here but they sure are aiming for it too........


  3. It's wonderful that the lady was able to stop the attack and to leave the perpetrator alive to regret her violent action.
    Law abiding citizens should be allowed to carry, however, without the unfunded mandate of licenses and permits, etc. Those are governmental extortion and definitely INFRINGEMENTS that the 2A says shall not be allowed to exist.

    1. The government wants law abiding citizens guns, the lawful are considered a great threat to the terrorist democratic party agenda. I consider them to be the greatest threat to our country. Our own brain dead idiot Biden has already stated he would use the military against the citizens.

      1. They want everyone to rely on the federal governmennt to protect us. A "National Police Force". Sounds like Nazi Germany to me!

  4. The anti gun people just seem unable to grasp the concept that if you disarm the law abiding citizens the criminals who can't be bothered to obey our laws, will have guns and will have a much greater choice of soft targets. Why do they suppose that mass murderers almost always choose soft targets such as schools?

  5. Isn't that wonderful of the authorities not to charge her. The DA's in blue states would probably charge her.

  6. The victim did what she had to.I'm actually looking to move from New York to a state that will allow me me to protect myself as I'm approaching retirement time.

    1. Nebraska is a great place to live if you support 2A. Weather can be pretty tough, but it keeps the riffraff out.

  7. As the title of Professor John Lott's book says, More Guns, Less Crime. And I really do not care if the assailants die or not. Initiating violence is forbidden in a civilized society.

  8. Once the political legislators decide and pass what’s best for the public by limiting any one thing in the constitutional rights then they start finding a reason no matter if it is sensible or not to take away more god given rights. Guns will always be in the hands of criminals, women’s rights to abortion is akin to being baby killers. So the abortionist don’t even need a gun.
