NRA Women The Armed Citizen Drawing A Pistol

A woman came home at 11 a.m. to find a burglary in process. In fear for her life, she drew her firearm and fired at the intruder twice, hitting him in the arm once. Police arrested the burglar at a rescue mission, where he was seeking treatment for non-life-threatening injuries. The man was charged with burglary. The homeowner was unharmed and will likely not face charges in the shooting. (wlbt.com, Vicksburg, Miss., 06/17/21)

A man was shot dead after an argument with a houseguest in an upper-class Texas neighborhood. According to reports, the homeowner asked the man to leave, but he later returned and threw the woman to the ground. Fearing for her life, she shot the man in self-defense, fatally wounding him. The woman was not arrested, but her case remains under investigation. “From all indications, this appears to be a justifiable homicide,” a local legal analyst told reporters. (click2Houston.com, Houston, Texas, 06/24/21)
