An innocent woman is alive today – and a criminal is dead – because of the right to bear arms. If it were in my power, I’d make this woman an honorary Texan.
A woman shot two intruders breaking into her Tulsa, Okla., home killing one and critically wounding another, police officials say.
Thursday’s alleged home invasion — in which the woman shot Darreon Carter, 18, and Daniel Holman, 23 — was Tulsa’s second such incident in as many days, the Tulsa World reported Friday.
Police Capt. Travis Yates said the woman — whose name was not reported — was walking back to her Brighton Park apartment about 3:50 a.m. after going to a fast-food restaurant when Carter and Holman allegedly forced their way inside, demanding money.
The woman cooperated until one alleged intruder told her to undress, when she pulled a revolver from her purse and shot him, the newspaper said.
Word on the street is, she has a concealed carry permit.
More: Doctor Bulldog has video. And here’s the police reaction, which tells you that this didn’t happen in a blue dot like, oh, Austin.
“It seemed to be a courageous act, protecting their home and their life,” [Tulsa police Capt. Travis Yates] said. “They were shaken up, but it was sort of impressive — they weren’t hysterical.”
