Stock Gun Photo - Revolver and BulletsAs we’ve said numerous times in the past, guns are the ultimate equalizer. They can easily allow someone smaller, slower, weaker or older than their attacker to quickly gain the upper hand.

That’s exactly what happened in this story out of Orangeburg, SC.

According to The Post and Courier,

[The Boyfriend] Williamson became enraged after looking in his girlfriend’s purse and finding papers where he was listed as a suspect for a crime in another jurisdiction. They started arguing, and he wouldn’t let her call her mother to come pick her up.

She ran out in the yard but he dragged her back inside, where he hit her in the back of the head and threw her to the floor.

Williamson’s grandfather came out of a bedroom and told his grandson to stop and get out of the house. Meanwhile, the woman found a handgun. Williamson charged at her, and she shot him in the abdomen.

The local sheriff has already announced that this is a clear cut case of self defense and the girlfriend will obviously not face any charges in the shooting.

This is the 28th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of South Carolina and the 1,063rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
