Woman Shoots Intruder Who Broke In, Defends Her Children. Comments

WSBTV, Georgia: A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

But the man eventually found the family.

“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2′s Kerry Kavanaugh.

    If this had happened in one of those exclusive Utopian states like NY or MA or CA or WA, this woman would likely be facing criminal prosecution.

    Oh, and BTW, I can think of no other way better than to withhold life-saving medical care from criminals like this to save some money in the long run. You do the crime, you don't get the care. Period.

    So glad that she was armed and able to defend herself. Her only mistake is that she didn't kill him. He'll probably sue her and some dumbass judge will award him something.

    This woman was not as lucky, she had no way to defend herself and was shot several times by hime invaders.

    The Dimwittocrats are saying they want to "stiffen" the penalties for carrying in "gun free zones", like the nuts, criminals and terrorists care, all they will do is make sure that everyone in these gun free zones is helpless and ready for the slaughter.

    These instances happen all the time. Wouldn't know that by the propaganda machines that run the media though. Like the picture by the way. lol

    Where was Obama to save her and her children?
  • Professor 2013/01/07 10:37:26
    Good for her, she had access to the means to protect her and her family and should be commended for doing her job as a parent, and no one should argue over the means that she chooses to do so.
  • Gid 2013/01/07 06:27:06
    I'm sorry she had to go through that, but good for her for protecting her family.
  • Batou 2013/01/07 05:59:28
    And if she stabbed the intruder would it make any difference??

    I think it's safe to say the woman would have done what she felt needed to be done to protect her and her family regardless of whether there was 2nd amendment, castle doctrine or any other law on the books.
  • andy15554 Batou 2013/01/07 16:27:08
    But she wouldn't have had a gun if the Democrats get their way. And it's a whole lot harder for a women to subdue an attacker with a knife.
  • Batou andy15554 2013/01/08 02:41:59
    Did Democrats not get their way when they controlled House, Senate, and Presidency? And yet that did not prevent the woman from owning a gun.
    Is there so much as a single piece of legislature that is being considered that would deprive the woman of her gun? If so, what's the name of the bill?

    What concerns it being harder to subdue someone with a knife that is true, but that's not what I was asking. I was asking if the same outcome was achieved through other means if it would make a difference to advocates of firearms? After all firearms aren't the only arms out there.
  • andy15554 Batou 2013/01/08 02:55:19
    they are just starting to try to take guns away.. there is no other weapon a women with small children could have stopped an intruder with.
  • Batou andy15554 2013/01/08 03:17:56 (edited)
    I see. So does all your information about the future Democrat sponsored bills comes from the same crystal ball as your belief that women with small children can't stop intruders without using firearms or do you actually have some kind of substantive support for your claims?
  • andy15554 Batou 2013/01/08 03:36:06
    you must be deaf, there are calls from radical Obama morons for everything from ban all semi-automatic weapons to ban all "assault" rifles. You're just delusional if you think that that woman would have stopped him with her knitting needles. Get a brain.
  • BarterMan 2013/01/07 05:41:09
    Good - one less scumbag roaming around.
  • ShelaKay0523 2013/01/07 05:30:45
    This is awesome.

    I may lean to the left on most social issues, but if I'm ever confronted by a would-be rapist I sure as hell wouldn't want to be without the means to defend myself. I will never stop being comforted by the fact that I'm legally allowed to kill someone in defense of myself, my family, or my property.
  • ronbo 2013/01/07 03:42:22
    I,m sorry she and her children had to end up in an unfortunate situation like that but I,m also glad she had the means to defend herself and her loved ones.

  • BULLDOGBlacksmith 2013/01/06 23:46:37
    Good for her. and to those people who love to claim the gov will not take these rights away needs to do some research into those in the government and their stances on things like guns.
