Default AL woman shoots intruder

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/alabama-woman-shoots-home-intruder-to-protect-herself-and-her-ax-and-knife-wielding-daughters/

Quote:
Lewis told the station one of the responding police officers said it would have been a different situation if she hadn’t been armed.

“One of them said we would be writing up a different report if she had not had that gun,” Lewis said.

Police said Lewis will not be charged for shooting the suspect. He faces charges of burglary and criminal mischief as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to WVTM.

Lewis said she’s had the gun for about three years but only for protection purposes.

“There‘s so much talk about banning guns and gun control but they’re for protection,” she said. “There’s no way that I could have fought him off.”
Well there you go

He was just getting his life turned around. One more murder and a good raping and he would have taken care of his own kids. Where is the compassion??

maybe she "incensed" him with a hollow point on how to be a better person.

good job Ms. Lewis.......but get out to the shootin range a lil more often and become a better shot.

1000 thumbs up to you and your daughters.

While this story has a happy ending, there is still something to be read between the lines. Practice, practice, PRACTICE....she had to wait for him to get close enough not to miss. That should have been at the front door.

I wish more mom's would take self defense this serious, protecting my family is part of my job as a dad and husband. Good job Ms. Lewis Good job indeed.

If only more women would take up arms. Husbands, Fathers and boyfriends, take your wives, daughters and girlfriends out to the range and teach them how to shoot and how to defend themselves. No matter the age, sex, disability, height etc. EVERYONE should know how to defend themselves, and be able to when necessary. The worst crime a government can commit is taking away the peoples right to bear arms and defend themselves. There's a number of countries and even states in this nation where this woman would have gone to prison. I don't know about you, but if my wife, daughter or girlfriend were put into a position such as this, there should be no doubt in there mind whether or not what they did was right and they shouldn't have to worry about going to prison.
