“Women should’t have guns ’cause men will take ’em away & used them against them.”

A Columbia woman who admitted shooting a former boyfriend in her apartment at 2807 Schoolhouse Road on Feb. 21 acted in self defense and will not be charged “at this time,” Columbia police chief Skip Holbrook said in a news release.
The unnamed woman called 911 around 7:30 p.m. and told police she had shot her ex-boyfriend with his own gun after he dropped it during a physical struggle. The man, identified by the county coroner as Jermaine A. Johnson, 33, had a “documented history of domestic violence allegations,” Holbrook said. The woman was in the process of getting an order of protection against him and had met with the police.

Oh, stop that! I can see you smiling all the way here.

No doubt she was at risk and at least a ray of luck was with her when she decided to go physical to save her life. But to deny that women can defend herself or operate a firearm because of some Hollywood fantasy writing can be very harmful to your health. Just last month, a son gave her widowed mother a gun for home defense and she had to use it a week later with excellent results.

They may be the weaker sex, but they are far from not being the deadliest.

  1. “A woman shouldn’t have a gun because a man will take it away and shoot her with it” is disgustingly sexist misogyny, and anyone who actually holds that belief deserves to be beaten severely by a female martial arts expert.

  2. And Man knows it! Knows, moreover, that the Woman that God gave him
    Must command but may not govern—shall enthral but not enslave him.
    And She knows, because She warns him, and Her instincts never fail,
    That the Female of Her Species is more deadly than the Male.

  3. “because of some Hollywood fantasy writing”

    Indeed. Remember, in every single horror movie, a woman running away from danger INEVITABLY falls down. Usually several times.
