Taxpayer relief shot: Texas woman shoots and kills home intruder

wrong house

You go girl!

From MyFoxChicago:  A 60-year-old Texas woman wasn’t taking any chances Monday morning when she heard two intruders enter her home, grabbing her pistol and shooting one of the would-be thieves dead, police said.

The woman, who was not immediately identified, confronted the two armed men after they entered her Harris County home through an open garage door around 11:30 a.m., WTSP reported.

Cathy Hanks, a neighbor, said it’s not surprising the woman fired her pistol when she saw a threat in her home, explaining: “That’s really how we are. That’s just Texas.”

“It’s the state of Texas. If you’re going to go into someone’s home, you’re going to get shot,” Hanks said.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s spokesman Thomas Gilliland told WTSP that both intruders — neither of whom were identified — were armed with pistols when the woman confronted them. She fired several shots and struck at least one man, who collapsed and died in her front yard.

Police found a gun next to the dead man’s body. His accomplice jumped over the fence and escaped, though it’s unclear if he was wounded in the incident.

Fox News reports that the woman was not injured in the incident. She did not know the intruders, WTSP reported.

Police are still looking for the second intruder, described as a man in his 20s who was wearing dark clothing with red underwear peeking out of his pants.

  4. Had this courageous woman not defended herself . . . we might have been reading a story with an altogether sad ending. As it is, I think the ending of the story is pretty great!

  5. It used to be that way in Nevada too. If you minded your business, didn’t mess with anybody or their stuff, you’d be fine. If you didn’t do that………!

  7. Lady needs to get a pistol with a larger magazine. That way she would have bagged both of them. Recommend a Sig 226 or Cz-75.

  9. Stories like this are of the UTMOST importance: This lady was exercising her rights under what they used to call “Castle Doctrine.”

    If ANYONE cannot feel safe in his or her own domicile—even if they rent it—then NO ONE is safe.

    “Oooh! Oooh! But the intruder died! Oooh! Oooh!” YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. Don’t like it? TOUGH SHIT! TOUGH SHIT!

    This is the problem of liberalism and of all leftist wing-nuttery: IT IS A SUICIDE CULT! The leftists are great preachers, certainly: Everything’s just swell in their textbooks. It’s real life they can’t handle! They’re always ready, willing and able to lecture and hector anyone as to how they should live. They can dish it out—but they can’t take it!

    They would tell Joan of Arc how to handle being burnt at the stake—anything but DEFEND HER. Anything but shout down her executioners.

    There was a case here in New York in 1984: Bernhard Goetz, the Subway “Vigilante.” Four punks came up to him in the corner of the # 1 train and “asked” him for $5–. He replied, “If you give me a moment, I think I have $5 for each of you.” He took out his revolver and popped each one of them.
    On the run for nine days, he came forward. He said, “I’m sorry, but it had to be done.”
    This was the defining moment: For the entire Liberal Establishment and their ideology was on the line. (In the end, Goetz was screwed: Although almost all of New York sided with him, the judge, while instructed the jury by MISQUOTING the law, stating that one who owned an “illegal” firearm “must” be convicted, rather than “may” be convicted. He was convicted on the firearm charge alone, and served eight months.)
    The same thing is happening here.

    YES, the liberals and kooks will actually deny Castle Doctrine: They’re doing it in England NOW: Defend yourself, and YOU are open to criminal charges.
    Eugenics and its EXTINCTION PROTOCOLS know no end.

    We need MORE dead criminals, not LESS!
