Good for the homeowner!
It could be worse!
Good job. Another one down.
May you be in Heaven before the Devil knows you're dead

^^^^^^That sounds like a pretty level-headed prosecuting Attorney^^^^^

Im glad that everything turned out good for the homeowner.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
Very nice shooting, maybe one less slug.
Very lucky homeowner,if the perp can run from the scene,there is a good chance they could of shot back,either he had a toy gun,or didn't want a murder charge since having her bullet in him is pretty hard to refute in court

Good self defense shoot!!!!
Just because I would like to know, any facts about the home owners gun and caliber ect.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
Good for her. The only way it could have been better is if we were referring to the LATE criminal, instead of the injured one.
I am afraid that in the days to come (actually months and possibility years) this kind of criminal activity will become more common place. This kind of action by the home owner is the only way to deal with it.

The scumbag was armed with a gun, and in her house! Homeowner is protected by law. To quote yourself...
"Missouri Law Is Pretty Clear"
How about just saying "No charges will be filed," and leave it at that.
Mrs. Melton did an excellent job keeping her cool and hitting him in the chest while being threatened with the scumbag's gun.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Awesome, don't mess with Granny.
