A sickening example of American Gun Culture

All I can say is, thank God we live in a country where generally guns are illegal to own.


89 Year Old Shoots at Intruder

Citizens in Des Moines, Iowa were able to rest easy Wednesday after one of their own did her part in stopping an intruder from robbing her home Tuesday, April 20.

Beatrice Turner, 89, was greeted by a man she said was pounding on her front door. Turner told the man he had the wrong house and to remove himself from her property.

Instead, the would-be robber continued to beat on the wood door until he broke it down.

Instead of succumbing to a home invasion, robbery or worse, Turner grabbed a .22 caliber revolver. She warned the man, who used his fists and feet to break down the door, that she would shoot him if he went any farther.

When the intruder decided to enter Turner's house, she pointed the handgun and fired a single shot, sending the man reeling onto the front lawn, unharmed.

"I said, 'As long as you stay on the outside, I'm not gonna (shoot),"' Turner said. "'But, if you come on the inside, it's going to be me or you.'"




This is a disgrace. When will Americans ever wake up and realize that guns have no place in society? I for one am glade that with our sensible gun laws in the United Kingdom, this particular women would be put in prison for 5 years, as anyone who possesses a gun deserves (Although 10 years is more appropriate, as us and Mothers Against Guns have long campaigned for).

Here at The Gun Control Network, we firmly acknowledge the fact that guns have no purpose in society, and incidences like this should bring this fact home to anyone considering obtaining one.

  4. To author of this blog, so you are saying that a women defending herself against a violent burglar in a desperate sitiation and act of disgrace? She even warned him several times she will shoot if he doesnt back away (she didnt even have to in the first place). Are you sir insane?
    It doesnt take too much of a rocket science to figure this out but: AT THE FIRST GLANCE NON OF YOUR ARTICLES MAKE SENSE. THEY ARE ABOSLULTY FULL OF FLAWS, MISTAKES, LACK OF FACTS AND GENERALY SPEAKING LACK OF SIMPLE CAMMON SENSE.

    Isnt it obvious what the purpose of this blog is?

    Yet you people read it and take it absolute face value. Does no-one understand the concepts of irony, sarcasm and parody at all?

  7. Senior citizens arming themselves?

    This is nothing more than NRA brainwashing the delicate impressionable minds of our oldest citizens! How dare the NRA do such a thing?

    They're acting as if seniors are too stricken with arthritis to even pick up a phone and call a cop! I know plenty of seniors who are more than capable of calling the police when attacked by gun wielding criminals who only have guns because the NRA allows them to in the first place.

    It is time to stop this incomparable madness! Stop the NRA! Stop the killing! Stop making seniors think they can protect themselves with guns. Guns & seniors don't mix.

  9. Cool English Thug24 March 2012 15:57

    As a proper English gentleman (i.e., Clockwork Orange thug) I believe that honest, law-abiding British citizens just aren't COOL like us criminal "yobs" and "yardies" are. We are the new aristocracy of "Cool Britannia", and as such honest, law-abiding citizens (in other words, CHUMPS) have a duty to let us beat, rape, rob, torture, and kill them as we please.
    As it so happens, our useless and cowardly boobies (oops, I meant "bobbies") and our country's Home Office agree that honest chump citizens shouldn't be allowed to barbarically defend themselves against us cool sexy thugs, and honest chumps should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of English law if they hurt one of us by fighting back (or one of us trips and stubs his toe while burglarizing an honest chump's house, because he didn't take the time and expense to make it safe for burglars.)
    All hail Old Blighty, the shining beacon of justice for the world!!!!!!!!!!!
