It seems that in Mississippi, it is actually okay to help others in dire need. The gist of the story is that Crazy Asshole decided to attack his wife in broad daylight with a knife, until a Well Armed Samaritan puts a stop to the whole thing with his pistol.
Unfortunately, Mr. Asshole is currently breathing (which is too bad); but it is interesting to note that the life of the victim was saved, and no shots were fired. This is precisely the type of case that gunnies refer to when we’re speaking of defending one’s self (or others) with a firearm without having to drill someone.
There are a couple of great quotes in the article, and one section that makes me scratch my head. This quote in particular:
As the attack continued, people were yelling at the man to stop and honking their horns, Stuckey said. She said she called 911.
“Honking their horns”? Honestly, what the hell is wrong with people? I’m sure that someone that drove by had a 9 iron in their car, that would have been a lot more effective than a horn honking.
On the bright side, the woman will probably be fine, her skeezy husband will probably go to jail, and a citizen successfully used a weapon in her defense. Good day.
