NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

A South Carolina woman and her child were home on a Sunday evening when a man allegedly broke in. Fearing for her life, the woman, who was armed, fired once, striking the intruder. When police arrived, they discovered the man collapsed just inside the apartment door. Police attempted unsuccessfully to render aid to the 28-year-old man, and he was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene. The woman and her child were unharmed. “Right now, it remains unknown why the suspect entered the apartment, and the investigation is ongoing," said Forest Acres Police Chief Don Robinson. "In the meantime, we recognize the resident’s right to defend her home and family as per the 'Castle Doctrine. under South Carolina law." (News 19, Forest Acres, S.C., 1/22/23)
