NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

After breaking up with her boyfriend, a Texas woman changed the locks to her home. But that did not deter the man, who continued to harass her. When she heard the sound of someone breaking into her home one evening, she retrieved her shotgun and hid in her bathroom. Home alone and fearing for her life, she opened fire, critically injuring the intruder—her ex-boyfriend. When police arrived, the man had no pulse. The woman is not expected to face charges.

One of two escaped inmates from a Columbia, S.C., jail—still in his orange jumpsuit—continued his crime spree by kicking down the back door of a local woman's home. During the 3 a.m. home invasion he took a knife sharpening tool from her kitchen, and proceeded toward the bedroom. But he soon found out he chose the wrong homeowner to terrorize. The woman, who was trained in the use of firearms, had retrieved her pistol as soon as she heard the door being breached, ultimately firing on the 30-year-old assailant. The man, who had a lengthy criminal history, died from a gunshot wound to the head. The second escapee was caught elsewhere in town. The sheriff on the scene expressed his support for the homeowner, reiterating the importance of owning a firearm and knowing how to use it, reportedly saying, “She came out on the good on this end and the other guy, the bad guy, didn’t.” The case was being investigated, but the woman was not expected to be charged.
