I'm no different from most women....we dont like to resort to violence. Not even with GREAT provocation. But that day when I was terrorized, slapped around, verbally abused...he grabbed a hold of my hair and made me crawl like a dog. he punched me. All I wanted to do was KILL HIM.... If there had been a gun in that apartment. I would have used it. Even if he was leaving.....I would have ran out and shot him as he walked down the stairs. I would have stood over him shooting him again and again. That's how much I wanted Hazem dead. And I would have spit in his face afterwards Having guns handy vastly increases the number of domestic homicides.

Ummm, gee, thanks. You've just provided me with another reason to think women being allowed to vote was a Baaaaad idea. Emotion over reason. Gratification over justice. Decoration over foundation. I'm really not a macho king of guy, but this "wussification of America" thing just might have something to it.

If he was aware you had a gun and was quite willing to use it because he provoked you and you would probably only get a slap on the hand from the law for shooting him, then he likely would have shown you more respect. They don't call it the great equalizer for nothing. Those type of men are cowards at heart. An armed society is a civil society.

Sorry, Allie, I have to doubt your assertions. I'm sure that you have very long, sharp knives in your kitchen, yet you did not grab one and attack him with it. You were furious, but mainly you were furious at your own inability to act. You gave away your empowerment, all yourself. You.

If I had the audacity to treat my wife the way you were treated, no gun of any kind would have been necessary. After all, I have to sleep sometime.... and we have castiron pans along with long, sharp knives. Besides, no real man treats ANY woman that way. Not even you.

No real man does. But he is not a man, he is a PIG.

As for the knives, I only have one kitchen knife and it isnt very threatening. I wouldnt attack a violent man with one, mainly becauise Im 5'2 and dont have a large wingspan

And what if he hadn't stopped, or you didn't get the chance to SEE him leave?
Would you be typing this today?
How about that womanwho was assaulted in her closet? She opened fire on that animal.
That gun saved her and her children from who knows what humanity.

I would pay to see video of him slapping your FAAAAAAAAAAAAT @$$ around.

By now, we’ve heard the argument about semi-automatic "assault" rifles: nobody needs one. We’ve heard the only reason why someone would obtain this kind of weapon is so they can kill people, which is far from the truth. We’ve also heard the argument from both the Left and the Right that a pistol is how someone protects their home.

"I really don’t know why people need assault weapons. I’m not a hunter but I understand people who want to hunt," Republican Rep. Peter King said on Morning Joe earlier this week. "I understand people who live in rough neighborhoods...
