I think I might feel differently about owning and carrying a gun were I a woman. I'm not hugely muscular but I'm not small either. The coward who would prefer to prey on a woman is not likely to choose me for a victim.

The Major unfortunate lack in this occurrence

(Apart ,of course from the Lady's being assaulted in the first place.)

Was the non-training from Whomever,was supposed to teach the Lady
about Firearms!

"Squeeze the Trigger of the Firearm pointed at the Perpetrator,Twice,Rapidly in Succession."
"If threat is still perceived,empty the Magazine into the Perpetrator."

The A**H*le should have been able to do nothing except lay there bleeding out awaiting
the attentions of MBPD .

I too considered that she was lucky he didn't manage to get the gun away from her and use it on her. Reflexes are funny. In close quarters, one could have the gun knocked out of one's hand very quickly if you were hesitant.

Feh, the morgue should have been called, not the Police Department.

Perhaps. OTOH, studies indicate that muggers and rapists choose people with nervous body language. I suspect that creeps on the take look for them that strike them as easy marks.

Predator-prey relationship, in which the predator notices the prey which is out of the ordinary. When part of the herd it pays not to be too far ahead, behind, or out on the fringe.

Teeny bopping disco queen
She barely understands her dreams
Of belly button rings
And other kinds of things
Symbolic of change
But the thing that is strange
Is that changes occurred

And now she's just a part of the herd.....

Odd that you bring up the herd thing. Not sure how that would sift out with the small crowd on OD. Are they too far ahead, too far behind, or just wayyyyyyyy out there on the fringe?

I like this story. The only thing wrong with it is that he is still out there to terrorize someone else. Likely next time he'll have a gun or will use the knife right away so that he isn't "threatened."
