Gun Works Better Than Paperwork For Tennessee Woman

posted on June 24, 2016

A Tennessee woman proved on Tuesday that a gun in the hand is more likely to save your life than a restraining order.

According to local media reports, the Goodlettsville, Tenn., woman went to her neighbor’s house and returned later to find her ex-boyfriend hiding under her bed. The homeowner had a restraining order issued against the man, and he had three outstanding violations against that order. 

Local police said the woman shot the man in self-defense and will face no charges. 

“Good for her!” neighbor Mary Alice Lovell told News 2 when she heard the news. “In this case, if he was trying to abuse her and she had a gun and she had a restraining order against him, then she has to protect herself.”
