    he is much more likely to simply grab the gun and kill her, than to utter the words that will allow her to defend herself.

    Her only real chance to get out of that fight alive is to have no gun in the house whatsoever.

    •  Scenario where it might help (0+ / 0-)

      If the woman has escaped to a friend's home, and the ex tracks her down, bellows threats and breaks the door down -- I've heard a 911 tape of that happening. She didn't have a gun. Bad things happened.

      Decent human beings don't like to think about situations like that. There's certainly room to put more work into prevention. A safe house, if available, would have been better. But until events like the one above never happen, there are times when things get so upside down that a gun can actually improve the situation.

    •  too often he hits while she is at work (0+ / 0-)

      killing a few coworkers in addition.

      Think what adding a 30 round gun into that mix would do.
