NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

Three men wearing hoodies rang the doorbell of a woman’s home, inquiring as to whether she’d like her yard cut. The woman declined, but the men eventually found their way to her daughter’s house. When they got there, they discovered she wasn’t home, and decided to break into her home. However, according to reports, the daughter returned home, only to find the intruders inside. They fired shots at her, but the woman was armed and returned fire at the suspects. Reports say the thugs fled the scene; one of them was later apprehended. The woman was not injured. (; Jackson, Miss., 5/1/24)
