As reported, a Columbus, Ohio woman used her handgun to stop a pair of armed and violent home invaders.

Police say that a pair of robbers went to the home of an acquaintance, where they held that man and his family at gunpoint while demanding money and prescription medication.  The mother of the homeowner, who was in a different room, reportedly realized what was happening and grabbed a handgun.  She then fired in self defense and defense of her family, striking one home invader and sending the other running, police say.  Two suspects, including one with a gunshot wound, were reportedly apprehended by police.  None of the victims were harmed, police say.

Yet again, we have another woman who was able to defend herself and her loved ones with a gun. Had this woman not been armed, she and her family could have been, victimized in their own home by a pair of dangerous attackers. Fortunately, this woman was armed for self defense, and as a result was able to save herself and the rest of her loved ones.  Once again, armed self defense works.
