NRA Women The Armed Citizen Aiming A Pistol

A mother and her infant child were home alone when she was awakened by a car door slamming outside. The woman then heard her screen door open, spurring her into action. She grabbed her firearm and approached the front door. A man was standing in the doorway, intoxicated and refusing to leave. The woman called her husband who was at work, and also roused her neighbor, who quickly arrived with his own gun. Both the homeowner and neighbor held the stranger at gunpoint until police arrived. Since no crime was determined to have been committed, the drunken man was returned home to his wife. The homeowner told the local newspaper, “There’s no doubt in my mind I would have pulled the trigger to protect myself and her if he got in the house.”  (Krem.com, Federal Way, Wash., 02/15/19)

An armed man was attempting to break into a house when he was surprised by the female resident, who shot him from her rooftop after climbing out to investigate. The woman called 9-1-1 to report the incident, all the while holding the perpetrator at gunpoint. After police arrived, it took about an hour for them to convince her to come down from the roof. They arrested the would-be intruder, who was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his shoulder. After investigating, the officers discovered multiple bullet holes in the home’s exterior, believed to have been caused by gunshots fired by the man after he was shot by the homeowner. Police also arrested two other men in connection with the attempted break in, who had fled the scene in a vehicle when officers arrived. (Kiro7.com, Seattle, Wash., 07/18/19)
