NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

A mother was lying down to nap with her 3-year-old one afternoon when she heard someone open her front door, enter and close it. When the intruder turned the knob on the handle to the bedroom, she immediately hid in the closet with her child, arming herself with a handgun. The intruder entered the bedroom and attempted to open the closet door, but the woman, in fear for her life and that of her child, shot two rounds into the door. The intruder was scared off, leaving no evidence that he was struck by a bullet. As of this writing, police were still investigating. The woman and child were unharmed, and nothing was stolen.

A 29-year-old woman was home with her family on Christmas Day when an agitated neighbor, a 32-year-old male, confronted her and began an argument. The exchange between the two escalated, and he pushed his way into the woman’s apartment, where he began to assault her and her family. In defense of her family and herself, the woman drew her pistol and fired at the neighbor, striking him. The man was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
