NRA Women The Armed Citizen Drawing A Pistol

A 45-year-old-man broke into a home through the basement just before midnight, and proceeded to make his way upstairs to the main level of the house. Before he reached the top, the homeowner, who had armed herself, swung open the door and ordered him twice to stop moving. The intruder ignored her demands and advanced toward her. Fearing for her life and the safety of the three other people in the home, she fired, fatally wounding the home invader. Citing Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine, the county district attorney went on record saying he believed the shooting was a justified use of force. (WJACTV.com, Johnstown, Pa., 06/08/20)

A woman in Port St. Lucie, Fla., defended herself against a vehicular assault on the night of June 28, shooting the male driver through the windshield with her self-defense gun. Police discovered there had been an argument between the man and a woman outside a residence. The man discovered two women unloading a car and attacked one of them. The other woman ran into the house, and a third woman returned with her, armed with a gun. The armed woman asked the man to leave. Instead, the man got into his vehicle and drove toward the woman with the gun, hitting her with his vehicle. "As the vehicle approached the armed victim, the victim feared for her life and fired a round into the [driver's] chest through the windshield," police said. The man is expected to recover. (TCPalm, Port St. Lucie, Fla., 06/28/2020)
