Man Allegedly Pins Down Ex-Girlfriend, Punches Her in the Head, Gets Shot in the Chest

Once again, having a gun saves the day. A woman asks her ex-boyfriend to move out. A couple of weeks later, he just shows up and she is smart enough to get her gun. He proceeds to climb on top of her and punch her in the head repeatedly. She shot him once in the chest. This is where we differ. He kept beating her and somehow she unloaded the gun before he took it from her. She should have emptied the clip into her assailant. When you shoot someone, it better be with finality. He could have beat her to death, even wounded. Worse yet, he could have reloaded and killed her. The one shot didn’t kill him, but it wounded him sufficiently to stop him from pursuing her. Thank goodness for that. But when someone is obviously out to severely hurt or kill you, don’t let sentimentality or fear of consequences keep you from defending yourself. Your life literally depends on it.

From Breitbart:

On January 25, a Maplewood, Minnesota, man allegedly pinned down his ex-girlfriend, punched her in the face, and then got shot when she pressed a gun to his chest and pulled the trigger.

45-year-old Daniel A. Carlson allegedly “threatened to kill” the unnamed 29-year-old woman before attacking.

According to the Star Tribune, “Carlson previously rented a room in the woman’s basement,” and the two became romantically involved. In “early January the woman asked [Carlson] to move out and took his key.” When he showed up on January 25, she knew something wasn’t right, so she retrieved her handgun.

Inside the house, Carlson allegedly “climbed on top of her and hit her in the head several times.” As he did, the woman raised the gun, “pressed the barrel against his right chest” and fired one round.

Although shot, Carlson continued beating the woman and managed to take the gun away from her, but not before she was able to unload it. The woman then ran outside and Carlson ran after her, only to collapse in driveway.

She dialed 911, and when police arrived, “Carlson was sitting on [her] front step.” He allegedly told police he was guilty and that “[he] was just trying to get answers.”

The bullet entered the front of Carlson’s chest and exited his back. He was “charged with making terroristic threats and domestic assault.” Without her firearm, this confrontation could have had tragic results for the woman.

This is why, in my opinion, everyone should be armed at all times. You never know when something is going to go horribly wrong like this. The shot was a through and through. The guy admitted to everything. What else could he do? He said he wanted answers, well, I guess he got one. I guess this gal will think twice before getting romantically involved with a renter or even about renting at all. He gave her fair warning before the attack, she gave him a warranted response. Any man who beats on a woman like that, deserves what he gets, even it that is getting his head blown off. Wonder how tough he’ll be in prison.
