I love it when the good guys/gals win. Good for you Granny. Just another punk with a gun trying to make an easy score. The world is a better place without him in it.

Well done, great-grandma, well done.

Good for granny, she did the right thing at the right time.
Go Granny Go. Important stuff right there. No formal training, no FOF, no mandatory anything. Just a old woman with a gun.
Does the important stuff. Keeps her head, doesn't panic, draws against drop against a loaded shotgun and prevails. Must be a hoax.
WAY TO GO OLD SCHOOL GRANNY!!!!

Poor old lady! I feel bad...for her, not the punk. She did what she had to go but it had to be hard for her.

Bringing a shotgun to a morality fight. Morality prevails.
Won't always be the case, by a long shot, but it's a good example of how being armed gives a person a fighting chance against evil. Heck, even politically-motivated hirelings know that much. "Granny" surely does.
Kudos to the citizen for surviving it. Bummer for the family members of the perp, who ostensibly love him. Time to rethink your training regimen a bit better, with your other family members. Teach them the meaning of a moral compass, how about? Might be a better option.
I wonder why she hates to say it? She would prefer the kid gun down the whole family, or they continue to be serially victimized by the same hoodlums? I don't get it.“I hate to say it but its good for someone to actually fight back,” said neighbor Verona Escobar, who indicated Pipkins has been a victim of robbery before. “They have been in her house twice before that.”

Good on Granny. Reading that it has got me to thinking, normally all guns in my safe are unloaded but I think now I may just keep at least one or two loaded while they are in the safe.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I feel for her. I really do. The burden one must bare taking the life of another even in self-defense must be so heavy. I pray for strength, peace and comfort for her and all those effect by this. I'm proud of her - don't get me wrong - but I also hurt for her.

Don't let the high post count fool you...I'm just part of the welcoming committee.
One of the many costs such evil people inflict upon others. Plus the impact on the "first" responders who had to cart his butt away, take the statements, eval the crime scene, as well as the folks at the hospital who had to try to stop the bleeding. And everyone else the little bugger impacted due to his callous stupidity.
I feel for all of them. It's not easy.
