The crying woman told a 911 operator she “shot him as much as I could” and moments later police found her would-be attacker dead in the backyard of her Gwinnett County home.

Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Dept. Gwinnett authorities say Israel Perez Puentes, 34, was killed when he entered a Duluth home and tried to sexually assault a woman.

The woman was getting out of the shower when 34-year-old Israel Perez Puentes, armed with a knife, dragged her to the bedroom where he planned to rape her, police said. Her fear was evident in the recording of her call for help – obtained by AM 750 and now 95.5FM News/Talk WSB.
“I was in the shower and the lights cut out in my house,” the sobbing woman said moments after she shot and killed Puentes  on May 11.“This man came at me with a hood on. And he had a knife in his hand.”  He forced her into her bedroom, she later told police, and that is where she retrieved her gun.

Good for her!  Not a situation anyone should be forced into but she took care of herself.  One less scumbag walking the earth.

No doubt you won’t hear president osama…I mean obama, hitler clinton…I mean hilery clinton, or the rest of those liberal nuts talking about this!  If they have their gun controlling citizen disarming freedom hating way this brave woman and many like her will become victims rather than victors!  WAY TO GO !!!  I hope her brave act causes many others to exercise their 2nd amendment rights and protect themselves, their families and fellow citizens from a rising tide of violent crime.

Sounds like you need a bigger gun…

I feel bad for the woman but I am proud of her. She gave him what fer… The one good thing Sonny Perdue did as governor was to sign the Castle doctrine into law in 2006. Now we don’t have to retreat. You come in with a weapon and you go out in a bag.  
This home invader got what he deserved. I am also happy he knew he was dying as he ran from her house.
