NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

A woman was home when she heard the sounds of someone breaking in her rear window at 2 a.m. It turns out the intruder was her ex-boyfriend. The woman retrieved her firearm and stuck it out the window. The intruder attempted to take the gun from her, but she shot him before he could. The woman is safe thanks to her quick action.

While a 65-year-old woman waited in a car with her adult daughter and grandson for another family member to finish shopping. a suspicious man opened the back door. The woman struggled to close the door as the man continued to try to pull it open. Finally, the grandmother drew her concealed-carry pistol, causing the man to start briskly walking back to his car. The victim then got out of the car and started yelling at him, and he simply said, “Sorry, ma’am,” and drove away. This frightening incident may have escalated had the grandmother not taken the steps she did to protect herself and her family. (FoxSanAntonio.com, San Antonio, Tex., 12/08/20)
