Woman opens fire on gang of thugs trying to get into her home

A group of thugs figured it would be easy to overpower one Kansas City woman. After all, her husband had just left to run an errand, leaving her all alone in the home.

They couldn’t have been more wrong.

The woman, later identified as Shirley Roberts, 52, immediately retrieved her gun after she heard someone jiggle the knob of the front door. She also witnessed two additional men heading to the back door.

Looking through the blinds, Roberts saw the men putting on gloves and preparing to force their way into her home. So she trained her firearm on the men and opened fire.

The criminals, scared silly, reportedly took off running. However, they also fired shots toward the house they attempted to break into.

Robert’s husband, Oscar Roberts, later said he and his wife have been going to the gun range to prepare for just that type of situation. “You’ve got to protect yourself,” he told KMBC-TV.

“I told her she’d done the right thing. We practiced that. She’s shook up, though. That’s the only thing about it, she’s very shook up,” Oscar added.

The practice at the shooting range seemingly paid off as police later arrested three men who went to the Research Medical Center, one of which was treated for a gunshot wound to the chest.

Police said the shooting seems to be justifiable self-defense.

“If you’re in fear for your life, most definitely we want you to protect yourself. We don’t want any harm to come to anyone,” Sgt. Marisa Barnes of the Kansas City Police Department told KMBC-TV.

So, a few points about this.

First, a leftist has no help to offer this woman. She can call the police if she has time and then wait 20 minutes for them to arrive. Leftists are more concerned with the safety and well-being of criminals than they are with allowing law-abiding property owners to deter criminals with weapons. It’s very important to see that leftists have nothing to offer this woman except to say “be raped and killed”.

Second, I think it was a good thing for the husband that he trained his wife to use firearms. I have tried to get two women I courted in a row to go to the range with me, and both said no. I hope that more women will reconsider about that, because it sure is great for husbands to know that their wives are able to defend themselves.

Third, it’s a great thing that the police aren’t giving her any trouble about self-defense. In the UK, which is very feminized and socialist, this woman would have been challenged by the police if she had so much as brandished a kitchen knife at her attackers. If she actually owned a firearm, she would be arrested. And if she fired at them, she would be sent to prison.

  1. ” In the UK, which is very feminized and socialist”

    You keep saying this. What are you basing it on? Which areas of the UK have you visited? I travelled all over the US and didn’t notice the men being any more ‘masculine’ than in the UK. As far as I can tell, the US military – which is huge – the schools, the infrastructure etc are all paid for by taxes, so I don’t get how it’s less socialist either.


    1. By “feminized” and “socialist” he refers to the legal culture, not to the people specifically. This is a well-established phenomenon.


    2. Feminists and socialists hate guns. because guns are the weapons needed to defend yourself against thier murderous ideologies. Britian is closer to the end because it has already managed to completely disarm its law abbiding citizens. Of course, its criminal element didnt give two shits about THAT particular law. Why do you think it took 20 mins to respond to those terrorists in webley last week? It took that long to find weapons to use against the armed terrorists.


    3. Socialist, because wealth is redistributed from the private sector to those who don’t work, via government:

      Feminized, because children are increasingly raised without fathers:

      I think I am also referring to things like the ban on private gun ownership and the prosecution of people who defend their property from criminals. As well as the EHRC and the prohibitions on free speech that is deemed “offensive”. And of course the ban on the death penalty. Those strike me as feminized policies.

      These are just examples of a trend. Hope that helps. I try to read the Telegraph and the Daily Mail every day.


  2. I think what scares me most about this is the notion that it is true that if gun-control advocates get their way, the only way to defend yourself is essentially to call the police and hide. It is ridiculous.


          1. Actually, I’m in England. Missing my M1911A1. (Although I used to have a Colt Python, a P08 in 9mm Parabellum and a side by side 12 bore [12gauge i think the Yanks call it])


  3. Can the law enforcement in the UK be held responsible for not preventing violent murder? If the UK honestly wishes no harm to come to criminals, where does the liability circle end when someone is murdered? Can’t their family get damages from a police force that failed to protect their loved one?

    Ultimate responsibility for the safety of individuals must rest somewhere. If the UK will not allow individuals to possess that responsibility, then it falls to the state. And if the state is failing to prevent all murder, then they are failing and should be held accountable.
