A local woman apparently didn't get the memo...

...that guns are baaaad news for women:

Police say a hysterical woman called Port Neches Police Monday morning to say she shot a man who was assaulting her. Police have identified Joseph Raymond Barton of Tabernacle, N.J., as the man shot multiple times. Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Montrose Street in Port Neches at about 10:50 a.m. Monday.
That's sure as hell one way to stop an assault in progress, isn't it? One would almost think the decedent had been reading the blog of a certain New Jersey expatriate and gotten the idea that Texas women believe that shite about guns being baaad news for them. Good thing she didn't get that memo, or she'd likely have been yet another statistic. Remember, friends and neighbors: Nothing stops an abuser like a sucking chest wound!
