How's That Saying Go?

Brad_in_MA sends in the latest addition, which brings to mind the adage that you can't beat a woman who shoots...

Deputies: Riverview man shot dead while beating girlfriend
A 56-year-old Riverview man was shot dead Saturday morning after attacking his girlfriend outside her apartment, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

At around 6 a.m., Vickie Rock, 50, of Riverview, was visiting a home at the Grand Oaks Apartments at 10103 Sherwood Lane in Riverview, when she heard glass breaking and screaming coming from next door, deputies said.
Rock - armed with a .45, G-d's own pistol caliber - went over to investigate and saw the soon-to-be deceased hitting his girlfriend with a blunt object. She yelled at him to drop said object and he instead started attacking her with it. In return, she proved that .45 beats rock (or pipe, for that matter) and reduced him to room temperature.

Domestic disputes are a really tough call - it's entirely possible that the person intervening will wind up getting attacked by both parties. In this case, it seems pretty clear cut, since the recently-deceased attacked the shooter. The report does mention that Rock had facial injuries, so it sounds like the goblin got a few hits in before she pulled the trigger. While I applaud her restraint, it's a shame she was hurt before ending his attack.

The Brady Campaign, MAIG, and other anti-freedom groups would prefer two women beaten to death than this outcome. Think about that.

Dead Goblin Count: 425

That is all.

Unpossible! Everyone KNOWS that WOMEN can only use a Double-Barreled Shotgun loaded with Birdshot to Defend themselves! Biden said so!

Was working out today and talking to one of the trainers about shotguns and home defense weapons when another guy, who was freaking HUGE, commented that his fists were all the defense he needed.

I pointed out that my .45 would beat his two of clubs.
