A Las Vegas man, who had reportedly been stalking his former girlfriend for months, staged a home invasion early Friday morning and got a nasty surprise. The woman had previously moved to get away from 22-year-old Douglas Eugene Jackson, and had a restraining order in place. She had also obtained a concealed carry permit, and armed herself. When Jackson broke in, she shot twice, hitting him directly in the chest. He fled, and she called 911. A police K-9 unit later found him hiding in some nearby bushes.
The woman told the story in a post on her personal blog, entitled “I shot my stalker tonight.”
“I’m writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog. After 6 months of stalking and threats against my life my stalker finally snapped and decided to kick my door in and make good on his promise.
“Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency. I shudder to think how differently things might’ve turned out had I not barricaded the door.
“I awoke around 1:15 am to the sound of the door giving way after one kick followed by the sounds of my stalker struggling to dislodge the chair while forcing his way inside. I jumped up and grabbed the gun I’ve learned to do everything even shower with.
“I stood at the top of my stairs and fired twice. Hitting him in the chest, I hear his scream, his disbelief that I’d stood up for myself. 0 to 100 in milliseconds. I’ve never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that’s what helps the most.
“For months of him evading the police I began to question whether he was unstoppable. Untraceable. Houdini, he would murder me and get away with it. As of now I’m in a haze of guilt, surprise, relief and disbelief. I shook as the canines drag him out from his hiding place under a bush. I survived, where so many people do not. Holy s**t, I survived.”
Each day in this country alone, an average of three women are murdered in domestic violence by husbands or boyfriends. In this case, appropriate use of a firearm saved a woman’s life.
ALERT: You can’t fire a gun without ammo, and the government is doing everything it can to reduce the supply of ammo in the U.S. That’s why it’s important to do what this video says so you can finally have “ammo independence.”
