- NRA tweet supports the mother who shot an intruder in Georgia
This weekend, the story of a mother who acted to protect her children during a home invasion made headlines and serious waves online.
, the resident of Georgia hid in a crawlspace, taking her children and a handgun with her, after she noticed a man break into their home. Even so, the burglar found them and she shot him 5 times, in the neck and face.
There is no report of him carrying a gun, but police concluded she acted in self-defense, to protect her family. I cannot tell you whether her actions were justifiable or not, but I can say for sure the NRA
thought they were.
As you can see in the screenshot above, they tweeted the story on January 4. In the midst of the gun control debate, this could be used as an example of when guns are needed.

"I cannot tell you if her actions were justifiable or not, ..." Are you serious? Man breaks into her house, she hides and he finds her (and her children) anyway. What should she do? Cry? She defended her life and protected her family. I'm not an NRA member or supporter but this is a clear-cut case of self-defense and justifiable use of force.

I'm sure we should all worry about the intruders rights ? Not. She is a hero. God bless AMERICA and our freedoms to own and use guns and to prosper without government aid . Be proud again America . This is where everybody wants to be or be like .

The intruder had no right in her home. What was he going to do to her? Rape Her? Rape her children in front of her? Murder all three by carving them up with a knife from the kitchen? How can a woman - a mother - protect herself from a male attacker?
It's illegal to break into someone's home - to criminal trespass in someone's personal dwelling.
She did what any other God-fearing parent would do and that is to protect not only her children, but herself as well.
Our homes are our castles. We have a God-given right to protect ourselves from would-be murderers, rapists, thugs, etc.
Let us protect our most precious children by placing police officers in our schools. Police officers protect our streets, our airports, our money, why not our schools. Put a $10 tax on each gun sale and a $1.00 tax on each box of ammo to help offset the costs of police protection for our schools.
Quit bickering about gun control, put something in place immediately like police in our schools and then let us start making sure criminals and the criminally insane do not have access to weapons of all types.

when someone breaks into your home, you don't start a chat like "hi, do you want just some money/jewelry/electronics, or you want to kill us/rape us/abduct us?" or "what weapon do you have so I can have a proportional reaction (baseball bat, knife, handgun, assault rifle, karate black belt)?". someone enters the house, shoot first, ask questions later, especially if you have kids. I'm not talking about someone just entering some backyard - there you have some degree of negotiation (calling the cops, screaming that you have a gun), I'm talking about someone breaking into the house.

If she was in california she would be arrested, children put in foster care and her husband arrested as an accomplice, and sued by the burgular's family. Lucky she's in Georgia.

My only comment. Increase the caliber of the handgun used. Clearly, a .38 is not enough. Perps should leave the scene of their crimes in a body bag.

she might get charge with excessive force if she uses a bigger caliber...

I think I would had done the some thing, first being a mother to protect my children , second being a woman and knowing most man can over power a women, I'm not going to take a chance when it comes to my family. Things can be replace but the life of my children and my own can not. So I think she done what she knew was right in her heart. God bless this great country !!!
