NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

A man was shooting a gun outside of a Mississippi home while three people were inside, and eventually broke into the house. One of the residents, a woman who knew the intruder, believed that their lives were in jeopardy and fired back at the man in self-defense, killing him. The woman then called 9-1-1 and will not face charges. (Fox13memphis.com, Coldwater, Miss., 01/26/22)

A woman called 9-1-1 to report her ex-boyfriend was breaking into her house. However, the ex-boyfriend saw that the woman was armed, so he left, but later returned with his own firearm—when the resident’s current boyfriend and three small children were also home. The intruder attacked the couple and held a gun to the boyfriend’s head. The woman was able to fire one shot, killing the attacker and saving her boyfriend’s life.
