    Well, she exercised her 2nd Amendment right to own a firearm and probably, hopefully, her right under state law to defend herself and her property.

    This is about the best result you can hope for when coming face to face with two home invaders.

    I'm glad this home owner was prepared. I bet she's glad she was prepared, too.

    I think you are required to urinate on yourself before you pull the scissors out.

    Back against the wall, hunkering down, blasting once intruded upon: pretty solid circumstances, there. You'd have to be in the U.K. to get hounded as a criminal, that way. Thankfully, not here in the U.S.

    Kudos to the lady for being able to defend herself.

    I'm glad the woman could defend herself. What are the chances these dirt bags won't bring a lawsuit against her?

    Another happy ending story.

    Burglars, Be careful when you open that closet door.

    Well done.

    Woman shoots at intruders in Elm City home

    Elm City, N.C. — An Elm City woman shot at two men who broke into her home on Tonya Road Friday morning, her husband told WRAL News.

    Chris Griffin said his wife, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol.

    The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them, Griffin said. One man was struck, authorities said.

    The homeowner will not face any charges. Griffin said his wife was very shaken by the ordeal.
    Just as it should be.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Well, he almost got shot again.

    "I heard somebody out at the road. He was hollering, 'Help me,' waving his arms, jumping up and down trying to stop traffic," Crumpler said. "There was another guy in the background. I heard him hollering, 'Help me. I've been shot in the chest. I'm dying.'"

    The wounded man then started toward Crumpler's house.

    "He started in this direction. I stepped inside and got my revolver," he said. "I told him to hold it."

    The man then ran into the woods, Crumpler said."
