    Cannot wait to hear the long and sorted history of the perp... I'm sure in his 25 short years on this planet, he's emassed quite the police record.

    Kudos to one spry and accurate 80 year old... Taking responsibility for the safety of her family. I'd like to see her honored by the city, for taking out the trash. Imagine how much she has saved taxpayers over the perps lifetime...

    Unfortunately stories like these get buried, as they don't fit the agenda of the political leadership nor the mainstream media...

    Here's one from the opposite end of the age range...

    "... and he cried like a baby"

    No, no, no, no, no........don't you know that he is a loving father/son and hard worker who was just starting to turn his life around? And that he would never do anything so violent? And that the promising life of this fine young man has been cut short by a vigilante homeowner just out for violence?

    I did a quick court records search of the deceased assailant's name and it was about 30 entries. Only one was available online and it was a felony conviction. LOTS of other entries but didn't want to waste a records request on him.

    The Everett Fish Wrapper had an article about this today. The now deceased Uentermensch did indeed have a record of violent felonies.
    Good shooting and good riddance! This kind of occurrance is why I am always armed. I find that my compact .45 ( + 2 reload mags) goes well in the pocket of my bathrobe, OC @ 3'oclock, and in the pocket of Carhartt trousers and shorts.
    Surprise Bozo!! Consume guano and expire!! :p

    The article starts with "This 80-year-old great-granny got a gun and wasn’t afraid to use it." I'm just going to leave the link here because the story is a great read the way it was written.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/05/0...kills-home-intruder-who-attacked-husband.html

    There is a more complete story here http://komonews.com/news/local/im-not-just-the-typical-granny-80-year-old-shoots-kills-intruder but I like the first one better.

    I really like this lady. Even KOMO News had a hard time painting her in a bad light. Her husband, by the way, is in pretty bad shape but it looks like he may make it. Relatives have set up a GoFundMe page for help with his medical bills.

    Younger ladies can learn some lessons from this lady.

    I'm glad the situation finally had a good ending.

    I heard an interview with her on the radio the other day (KIRO), she sounded like a really sweet lady. She definitely handled a terrible situation in the best way she could. I think anyone who tries to paint her in a bad light will really have to stretch the facts. The most interesting fact, to me, was that she said she hadn't even fired her handgun in over 5 years! Just goes to show how valuable the equalizing power of our tools really is - even without the latest force on force training!
