    Good : California Woman Shoots Would Be Intruder

    I saw this video on the AP service and was amazed at the way this lady defended herself against a man who was determined to break into her home and do whatever he had on his mind. It happend in Califorinia where we know the firearms laws are so strict, it is amazing she was even able to own one, let alone use it to thrwart her attacker. This should be a wake up call for California legislators to seriously look at how keeping firearms away from decent citizens will not stop this kind of thing from happening.

    Then again, maybe not. Depends on who is in office making laws.

    How could that happen? I thought the right to self defense was illegal in California. So how this will get turned around and this woman was in the wrong and they will fry her.

    Good for her. She seems very calm collected in the interview. It was interesting that the media reported her initial shots as warning shots, but in her interview she says she just pointed the firearm at the intruder and fired twice. I wonder where her first two rounds went?

    I think she handled herself magnificantly. Well done.

    PS: There are lots of good folks with guns in their homes in California. Not as many as PA, but way more than it's popular to admit.
