I read a great story about a woman who confronted an intruder. ^http://abcnews.go.com/US/georgia-mom-hiding-kids-shoots-intruder/story?id=18164812^Upon hearing him enter the house, she grabbed her kids and her 38 caliber pistol and ran into the attic. Don’t know why she didn’t grab a phone, maybe there wasn’t one nearby. I’m sure she would have if she could. He went through the house, and rather than grab something of value and leaving, he found her and her children in the attic. She defended her family.The man is expected to live.She didn’t have an assault rifle, or armor piercing bullets, or a 10+ bullet clip. She had a revolver and enough training to hit her target with 5 of her 6 bullets.If he had found her without a gun, her home was too far away from neighbors for her screams to have been heard if he chose to attack. If he was just a burglar, why did he keep searching the house and even go to the attic?This is a story that shows where a gun has value. I still support banning high capacity clips, cop killer bullets, and I support 100% background checks even when guns are sold by private owners and gun shows. But…I’m so glad that young mother had her 38.Respectfully,C.
