Police in Columbus say a woman sleeping on a couch with a loaded gun fatally shot an intruder who smashed through a front window.
A police report said the man who was shot had broken into a house across the street Thursday morning and had just jumped out a second floor window when confronted by that resident.
He broke through the window of the other home, and the woman sleeping in the front room grabbed the gun and fired multiple shots. He died later at a hospital. Police later determined he wasn’t armed.
Given that the departed was attempting his SECOND break-in of the night, It lends some light to why she was packing in her sleep. When LaWeer’da was born I was carrying, because I had woken up that morning, and like most mornings strapped on my gun. Since the baby was successfully birthed I had to sleep on that gun for 3 days, and while it wasn’t comfortable, it was considerably more comfortable than not being armed.
Still I’m glad this lady was armed, and I’m glad this upstanding citizen won’t be wasting the time of the court and penal system.
