"Krista Ermen could not describe how she felt watching the man who beat her with a baseball bat plead guilty." ...

"During breakfast with the girls on the day he was to return the children to their mother, he said he hated the Ermens' father, Matt, and 'was going to get a bat and kill everybody.'"

"He later said he didn't mean it. But he pulled an aluminum baseball bat from the back of the car when he took the children to their mother's home across the street from the Ermens' house." ...

"Matt and Sean Ermen finally subdued Marsh by hitting him with an unloaded pistol. ..." [emphasis added] ...

"A protective order barred him from contact with [Kimberly] except to 'facilitate visitation' ..." ...

The protective order barring Mr Marsh from further acts of family abuse probably just wasn't working that day. Seemed like it was running fine up until then. Government will protect you, and the courts really do care about your safety. Really.

send money to me for lamp control and now bat control

An unloaded RIFLE would have made a much better impact weapon.
Safe storage! Safe storage! Awwwk! For the children. Polly want a trigger lock. Awwk.

If you want to use a pistol for self defense, but aren't willing to actually pull the trigger, it's best to keep it unloaded.
In an actual fight, a pet rock would protect you better, but the handgun does look more intimidating.

I'd taken him out with the purse I carry.

Comment by: MJ (8/11/2006)
also barred him from "further acts of family abuse,"

So how's that working out for you?
