After an Idaho woman went outside her home to investigate a strange
noise, she found a former co-worker hiding in the bushes. He told
her his pickup truck had broken down and he needed a lift home. She
reluctantly agreed and took a .380-caliber handgun with her. Police
say that when they reached the co-worker's driveway, he began to
assault her. "He grabbed her and physically attacked her and told
her she was coming with him," said Sheriffs Capt. John Valdez. The
woman drew her gun and shot the man in the abdomen, killing him. An
autopsy of the assailant, who was a registered sex offender, showed
he had a blood-alcohol content of .26 percent. Investigators say his
truck was later found near the woman's home, and it appeared that
its engine was intentionally disabled.

It’s important to celebrate that law-abiding Americans are now closer than they have been in nearly half a century to being able to exercise their firearms freedom in our nation’s capital. That is real progress.
