To be fair (and I dislike the NY mentality as much as the next guy), that part of the title is a quote...from a Texan.

I'm not saying that they didn't include it in the title in a demeaning way, but the NY Post isn't the one that said it.

Other than that, good for her.


edit on 2-8-2017 by SlapMonkey because: accidentally put "NY Times" instead of "NY Post"

While many perceive it as a gun loving state (it is). It also has strict laws to go with it.

You can't shoot anyone in the back (unless that's changed).


It hasn't changed.

Yep. What can we say? That's our Texas! They're a little crazy down there from all the sun... It's mutated their brains to make them think that they have a right to defend themselves! Silly Texans... Why would a person Ever need a gun, as long as they have a phone? The cops Will get there eventually...your next of kin WILL be notified... I don't understand what everyone is so worried about. It's probly just those brain fried Texans can't remember the number to 911! Haha dumb hicks...

Yeah, its bad to shoot anyone in the back.

Shoot them in the foot, and when they fall down, go over and shoot them in the heart from the front. That should cover all the basis.

So, they'd prefer what, that she was raped and killed??

She did what she needed to do.

Did you even read your own article?

It was a quote Her neighbour said



Cathy Hanks, a neighbor, said it’s not surprising the woman fired her pistol when she saw a threat in her home, explaining: “That’s really how we are. That’s just Texas.”


It's not mocking Texas at all. It uses her quote to get the point across that Texas is a place where you're likely to get fired at if you trespass on another persons property.


This is how I read the title too, I took it as a compliment to Texas, not a cut down.

Kind of hard to dispute that...

Come into my home with hostile intent, and you're likely not to live long enough to regret it. You'll get one warning, you heed it, you get to live, if you don't, well...on your head be it.
