NRA Women The Armed Citizen Shooting A Pistol

A 28-year-old woman was home alone with her child in the mid-afternoon when she called 9-1-1 to report a strange man prowling around her home. The woman also reported that he took off all of his clothes and walked around her house naked, breaking windows. Eventually, he attempted to crawl inside the house. Upon his entry, the mother armed herself and shot the intruder in what police are calling, “a clear act of self-defense.” (tdn.com, Kelso, Wash., 08/19/21)
