Woman Shoots Rapist Who Came Back to Rape Her for a Second Time

As reported, a rape victim shot and killed an attacker in Cape Girardeau, MO when he broke into her home to rape her for a second time this week. The 57-year-old woman shot 47-year-old Ronnie W. Preyer, a registered sex offender, in the chest with a shotgun after he cut the power to her apartment and then broke through her locked basement door. Preyer had previously broken into the woman’s home, punched her in the face, and then raped her in her bedroom.  The county prosecutor has stated that the woman acted properly in defending herself, and will not face charges.

I wish that those who oppose gun rights would take note of cases like this, as well as countless other examples where women were able to defend themselves with gun, instead of being defenseless victims.  Had this woman been unarmed, she would have been raped twice, and a convicted sex offender would still be on the loose and able to victimize others.  Instead, this woman exercised her constitutional right to gun ownership and self defense, and was able to save herself.
