Good: NEVER GIVE UP!
This 50 year old woman wasn't "going like this" and fought on against an armed home invader.. The gun went off... The invader was critically wounded. No permanent injuries to the homeowner.
Even the untrained, unarmed, can prevail... With a "never say die" attitude...
Good on her...

I'm amused that the source is the NY Daily News, where lots of folks can only dream about owning a defensive weapon.

I got a feeling in NYC if you shot a perp with his own gun they would still charge you for possessing a handgun illegally for the few seconds you held it to put some caps in his butt.

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

If the critically-injured idiot expires, hopefully that state's statutes will allow charging each of the remaining robbers with murder. One can only hope.
Kudos to the citizen for surviving it. Whatever it takes.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but I read that he had the gun in his hand and started assaulting her. It says at that time she kicked him just right because the gun went off and struck him in the head. I did not read where she disarmed him.
I can only speculate that she kick him in the Crown Jewels as he rared back to strike her with the gun and her timing was impeccable.

Bravo her for even trying. And Hooray for her timing!!
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?

A woman's got to do what a woman's got to do. Glad it worked out for her.
