Police say the woman broke up with the 29 year old man, who had a history of domestic violence, nearly 4 years ago.
Last week, the ex-boyfriend reportedly broke in to the woman's home on the 700 block of West Louise Drive, and waited in ambush until she arrived home that night. At this point, the ex-boyfriend is said to have emerged from the bedroom closet and attacked the woman.
The woman reported grabbed her self defense gun and fired, fatally wounding the home invading ex-boyfriend and saving herself from the violent attack. Police say that neither of the home's children, ages 9 and 15, were harmed.
As a matter of biology and perhaps cultural norms, men tend to be physically stronger than women. The result is that cowardly abusive men can and do use their superior physical strength to harm their victims.
However firearms are the great equalizer, and when a woman is armed, she is in the best position possible to defend herself. A few examples illustrate this point: This armed woman used her gun to stop violent ex who broke into her home and cornered her in her bedroom. 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 him 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, while this armed woman saved herself and her family from a pair of armed, kidnappers.
