    Woman gets tough with armed home invaders

    OCALA - A petite woman, firing a .357-caliber Magnum handgun until it was empty, chased two intruders from her home in the 3800 block of Southeast 68th Street on Wednesday morning.

    Later Wednesday, Marion County sheriff's detectives had one home invasion suspect in custody and were looking for the second. Aaron Scott Beardsley, 25, was charged with armed home invasion robbery. Deputies were looking for a heavy-set man, about 6-foot-1-inch or 6-foot-2-inch, who was wearing black shorts, a dark T-shirt and a bandana.

    Sheriff's Detective Art King, in his report, gave the following account:

    Shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday, 29-year-old Jennifer Ann Hunley; her 27-year-old boyfriend, Michael Joseph Nash; and Hunley's 11-year-old daughter were inside their home when two men entered through the garage door. Nash saw one of the intruders holding a nail gun.

    The man demanded money. Nash saw a second suspect armed with a handgun. The one with the nail gun hit Nash on the head, and both men beat him.

    Hunley came into the living room, saw what was happening, returned to her bedroom for the handgun and fired a warning shot into the ceiling.

    The intruder with the nail gun ran outside, while the other one ran into a nearby bedroom. He pointed his small-caliber handgun, and fired at least one shot at Hunley.

    Hunley, who is 5 feet 3 inches tall, fired four shots at the intruder. The gunman ran out the front door. Neither Hunley nor her daughter were hurt.

    Afterward, deputies received calls indicating that the wife of one of the suspects may have driven the getaway vehicle. Nash reportedly recognized Beardsley from an Internet photo.

    Deputies brought Beardsley and his wife, who is pregnant, in for an interview. Beardsley said he was innocent, but his wife told King that she dropped her husband off close to the Southeast 68th Street address and waited about 20 minutes for him, according to King's report.

    She said her husband was sweating when he returned to the vehicle. The woman said she didn't ask any questions about what he did or where he went.

    Beardsley was then arrested and charged with armed home invasion. He refused an interview request from the Star-Banner.

    She needs some range time, and needs to forget about warning shots otherwise sounds like she did good.

    357 mag is all good and all, but if you can't hit anything with it; it's time to go smaller.

    wow, if someone came into my house with a nailgun and fired a real gun, they would not be escaping. I would be pretty pissed.

    Ban nail guns, they are all killing machines. They serve no other purpose than to kill.

    We obviously need nail gun registration, all nail guns need to come with a fired nail to be kept for future ballistics testing.
     
  7. No nail guns need a capacity of more than 5 nails.

  10. Banning it doesn't help the government. We should tax and regulate it!
