    Gun made woman safer!

    Yet Obama would disarm her....

    Home invasion suspect arrested after woman opens fire
    From (with video) Home invasion suspect arrested after woman opens fire | News - Home

    MAGNOLIA, Texas -
    A home invasion suspect was arrested at a hospital after a mother shot him during the crime at a Montgomery County home, deputies said Wednesday....

    Erin said she turned around and saw three masked men, pointing a gun right at her.

    "When I saw three of them, I knew I was in a lot of trouble. I said, 'The TV is the most expensive thing I own. You could take that through the front door and go with it,' and they said, 'No, the money, the money,'" said Erin.

    Erin said she had to think fast as the men headed towards her son's room. The mom said she distracted the men as she rushed to get her gun....

    Yep, it goes to show you should have your gun on you while awake. Good job lady, even though you had to run for your gun.

    Another lesson from this - Don't shoot once and see what happens next. Shoot until the threat is no longer a threat. One of them was able to get her and get her gun. She was lucky that she wasn't shot by that guy.

    Amen to that-shoot until the threat is gone. She's lucky.

    At one time woman would defend themselves with a Rolling Pin (anyone remember what a Rolling Pin is) , I am glad that woman (like my wife) now a days want to defend themselves with a gun and take my word for it they are great shots too.

    She is very lucky to still be alive.

    As others have said, you continue to shoot until all threats have been neutralized.

    I ain't had home made biscuits in YEARS. Can I come down to your house????

    As others have said, she should have kept shooting till the gun was empty. I hope she does this if the dirtbags that are still on the loose decide to make a return visit. She should remain on high alert.

    Wrong answer. We said you keep shooting until the THREAT IS NO LONGER A THREAT. If that means one bullet, then it is one bullet. If you empty your gun, and you didn't need to, you will likely find yourself behind bars.

    You're right, I went a little overboard.

    Or wishing you had saved one if they come closer.

    You made me hungry too. I moved to Texas 48 years ago and I knew I made the right move when I stop at a Texas diner and a cute girl asked if I wanted coffee and I said yes and breakfast. She got me my coffee and biscuits and gravy with sausage too plus a menu.
