Did she have the doors locked?
I'm very glad she was able to defend herself, but I do have to ask... how in hell did that guy get into the house?
Far too many people leave doors unlocked and do not take the steps to secure doors and windows to make entry difficult.
I have had to shoot a man to save my life. The Man I Might Have Killed I made a lot of mistakes then and am lucky to be alive. I went on to learn as much as I could and have been a firearms and self defense instructor for many years now.
I have written a book about this, especially for women. I would be happy to send it to anyone who will give me their email address. Send a PM here to request the free book.
