As reported, an Atlanta woman used her gun in self defense to stop an armed robber.
Police say that a woman called 911 to report that an armed robber approached her as she was getting her mail, and put a gun to her head. The woman reportedly pretended that she was getting money from her purse to give him, before drawing her own handgun and fatally shooting the robber. No injuries to the woman were reported.
As I’ve discussed before, complying with a criminal’s demands is no guarantee that the criminal won’t become violent. Similarly, running from the criminal can also lead to injury. Fortunatly, this woman was armed for self defense and was able to ensure that the robber would not harm her (or anyone else ever again).
This case underscores that point that when women are armed, they are in the best position possible to defend themselves and their children. A few examples: This armed woman used her gun to stop violent ex who broke into her home and cornered her in her bedroom. This ill but armed woman was able to fend off 3 home invaders, including one who came back to attack her again. This armed woman was able to defend herself against a rapist who came back to rape her for a second time in a week. This 85 year old armed woman held a young burglar at gunpoint and made the burglar call the police on himself. This armed woman stopped an attacker who tried to ambush her. This armed pregnant woman used a shotgun to scare away two home invaders. Thisarmed female school teacher used a gun to save herself from a convicted felon who broke into her home. This armed woman saved herself and her family from a pair of armed, kidnapping, home invaders. I could list more examples, but the point should be clear: Guns save lives.
