As reported, a Shelburn, Indiana man saved his neighbors from a home invading rapist:

Police say that an intruder broke in to a rural home in western Indiana.  The home invader reportedly tied up the home’s occupants – a woman and her daughter – then sexually assaulted the daughter.  The mother managed to send a text message to a neighbor, asking for help, police say.  The neighbor’s boyfriend is said to have come to the rescue, armed with his gun.  After the home invading rapist refused to leave, the neighbor’s boyfriend reportedly shot the intruder in the legs multiple times, ending the attack.  The injured attacker was treated at a local hospital then taken to the Sullivan County jail, according to police.

Once again, a gun in the hands of a law abiding citizen has stopped a crime.   Rather than standing idly by as an innocent woman was further victimized, this armed neighbor was able to stop a rapist from further harming (or even killing) these women.

I also hope that these women invest in a gun for self defense for the future.  Remember, when women are armed, they are in the best position possible to stop their attackers – before it is too late.  A few examples: This armed woman used her gun to stop  violent ex who broke into her home and cornered her in her bedroom.  This ill but armed woman was able to fend off 3 home invaders, including one who came back to attack her again.  This armed woman was able to defend herself against a rapist who came back to rape her for a second time in a week.  This 85 year old armed woman held a young burglar at gunpoint and made the burglar call the police on himself.  This armed woman stopped an attacker who tried to ambush her.  This armed pregnant woman used a shotgun to scare away two home invaders.   This armed female school teacher used a gun to save herself from a convicted felon who broke into her home.  This armed woman saved herself and her family from a pair of armed, kidnapping, home invaders.  I could list more examples, but the point should be clear: Guns save lives.

    we as Americans need to realize that we are the front line in a war accross our nation, never have our people been more prone to let police be their excuse "i dont need to carry a gun because the cops will come".

    please listen to me, do you want your protection to be in a holster at your side on the day you are attacked? or do you want protection to be sitting at a donut shop 20 minutes away? you have the right to self defense however no one but you can choose to exercise that right, do so, or you may be like these poor women tied and helpless in your own home.

    I understand all your points and agree with them, but for a lawyer you really need to learn how to write an argumentative essay. You have no real facts, no times, no dates and no names. Not doubting these stories or thinking they’re unrealistic but it sounds completely opinion based. You feel strongly about guns, anyone can see that from your website, but what they can’t see is the real facts behind this that support your love. Revise your work and make it sound like your’e actually a lawyer who didn’t get his degree online and maybe i can cite you next time in my own essay on gun control. Ian out, *drops mic*.
