NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

A woman was alone in her home on a Thursday night when she heard a noise coming from her front porch. Upon investigating she immediately noticed that the front door was wide open. The woman armed herself before exiting onto the porch, where she confronted a strange man and, fearing for her life, fired a single shot. The would-be intruder escaped, and authorities used dogs to track the suspect, but were unable to locate him. They did, however, discover evidence that he had been attempting to break in by using a pry bar. This prepared woman was able to defend her life and property by quickly arming herself in the face of danger. (IdahoStatesman.com, Boise, Idaho, 05/17/19)
