As posted on World Net Daily today, I was pleased to read all of the logic and decorum an American citizen could hope for in the account of this home invasion. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=118339
Kudos to the dispatcher (female even) for not villifying the woman for defending herself.
Kudos to the husband who had taken time to make sure that everyone in the home knew how to use the shotgun. It’s says a lot if a woman can competently use a firearm, in the dark, under stressful circumstances. Not only that, but the report says that one shot was fired. Clearly this woman knew what she was doing.
And finally, kudos to the woman for having a moral fiber through it all. It was quite apparent that she had no desire to take this man’s life and would have loved to have avoided doing so. But such was not to be. She had to use her own agency in order to handle the consequences of another person wrongfully using his own.
I hope that everyone who has cause to use a firearm for self defense can be armed not only with the knowledge and skill of its operation, but with the moral fortitude that this woman displayed as well.
