Her Son Gave Her a Gun for Self-Defense. One Week Later, She Found Herself Needing It. [Video]

This woman has a good and smart son. Giving her a gun, especially since she lives alone now, was the prudent and safe thing to do. Looks like she knew how to use it too. Some dirt bag tried to break into her home early Thursday morning and got a lead sandwich. He later died – one less craven criminal in the world. I don’t understand why the police would even have to think about her taking the proper action to defend herself. If she hadn’t shot this guy, she would probably be dead. Look’s to me like she did exactly the right thing. Good for her.

From TheBlaze:

A woman was startled out of her sleep early Thursday morning when she heard what sounded like someone breaking into her home. It turned out to be a robbery suspect who police believe was breaking into neighborhood homes in West Columbus, Ohio.

The woman grabbed her firearm and confront the intruder, eventually firing what would be a fatal shot. The suspect was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital hours later.

The homeowner’s son told WSYX-TV that he had given the gun to his mom, a widow, last week because he was worried about her safety.

West Columbus Police Sgt. Dave Sicilian confirmed to the news station that the “homeowner was awakened and defended herself.”

However, he also reportedly added, “We need to determine if she needed to defend herself and if she took the proper action.”

This is why we have the Second Amendment… so we can lawfully protect ourselves and our loved ones. Evidently, the intruder confronted her, didn’t back off and now he’s in the morgue. No tears here or there, I’d imagine. She must have had it handy as this scum woke her up. She had the presence of mind to shoot for keeps as well. It was just good fortune that her son gave the gun to her the week before, because she sure needed it and put it to good use.
