her husband is a very abusive ass hole.
and sil is 5 months pregnant.
i was out back hanging laundry. our power was knocked out a week ago, so no washer, no dryer, we.ve been using a camping stove. and a cooler with ice that we buy daily. the power is suppose to be back up in a few more days.
dd was napping up stairs. i had ds in his swing on the back porch.
i was almost done when i heard sil yell.
i picked ds up, rushed in, put him in his play pen and looked for sil.
i found her on the front porch. pinned against the wall by that fucking ass hole asshole.
i went to the closet next to the front door and got the shotgun.
i stepped out, pointed it his head and told him he had 5 seconds to let her go.
he let go. i told her to go inside, find my cell phone, and call the cops.
he laughed and said 'you wont use that on me. you dont have what it takes'
i said 'hmm. try me and me and we'll see.'
he stepped towards me. i shot over the shoulder and told him 'next time i wont miss'
at that point he was nervous. i told him to sit down.
sil had been on the phone with the 911 operator and the police were on the way.
i made him stay seated on the porch. he broke the restraining order by coming her. and he had hurt sil. her arms were already bruising from where he had grabbed her, she told the police he slammed her against the wall. he told the cops ' i want her arrest she tried to kill me' i told him ' i didnt try to kill you. come around again, and you.ll find out whatd id do to kill you'
the officers took our statements and the kids and i went with sil to the hospital. aside from some pretty bad bruising on her arms and back, both she and the baby are fine. shes pretty shaken up though. when the police got him the first thing the officer did was pull a large knife that was sticking out if his back pocket out.
one of the officers asked what i was thinking. i told him 'i wanted to shoot him. if he had taken another step i wouldve'
he said 'i would have too'
i swear if that fucking asshole so much as steps foot on a blade of grass in my yard, then his ass will have a bullet in it. he touches sil again, and hes as good as dead.
hes damn lucky dh was here. he wouldve been taken out in a body bag instead of handcuffs, hes not as calm and rational as i am....
i know a lot of you ladies are against having guns. but i am damn happy to have one... i dont know what wouldve happened if we didnt have that gun...
...its been a long day....
eta- to the left of my house is nothing but trees. i was actually aiming at one specefic tree. just thought id add that so no one else had to ask about the surrounding nr what couldve been hit.
