NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

Like a scene out of a scary movie, a brave mother and her three children hid in a closet that had been designated as the family’s safe room after a knife-wielding man broke into their home. According to reports, the 44-year-old man had attempted to kick down the front door but was unsuccessful, so he drove his pickup truck into the home’s dining room. Meanwhile, it was the woman’s husband—the father of their three children—who notified county deputies of the developing situation from work, providing a description of the vehicle. When police arrived, they discovered that the armed intruder had already left the scene—but not before the mother shot him in the arm when he, still holding the knife, discovered them in the closet. It was also reported that other deputies responding to the scene found a vehicle matching the description given by the husband. (; Carroll County, MS; 1/23/24)
