As reported, a New Mexico woman used her gun to stop a man who broke in to her home, threatened her with a knife, and ordered her to undress:

Police say that the 33 year old woman was apparently followed home from the gas station by a man who then forced his way into her home. The man reportedly grabbed a knife, held it at the woman’s chin, and demanded that she remove her clothing. The woman grabbed a gun from under a pillow and fired, fatally wounding the intruder and saving herself, according to news reports.

I wish that those who oppose gun rights would take note of cases like this, as well as countless other examples where women were able to defend themselves with gun, instead of being defenseless victims. Thankfully, this woman exercised her constitutional right to gun ownership and self defense, and was able to save herself from a violent attacker.
