At Least It Has a Happy Ending

Woman armed with shotgun blasts 'crazed' home intruder

Yes, she called 911 and the usual happened.

Jackson remained calm as she spoke with a 9-1-1 dispatcher during the break-in. She called at 12:40 a.m. and was on the phone for more than 10 minutes reporting the intruder, explaining that her barking dogs had awakened her in the middle of the night. She said she was alone, and her husband was working a night shift.

Do you rely on the police for your protection? Good luck with that. Donna Jackson was prepared to defend herself, if necessary. Better to have and not need, than to need and not have.

I will add that her attitude about the shooting is the attitude of most people who conceal carry or have guns for home protection.

She told the dispatcher, the sheriff deputies "need to hurry. He's going to break this thing open. If he does, I'll have to kill him, ma'am. I don't want to kill him."

Responsible, law-abiding gun owners do not want to kill anyone. They hope and pray they never have to use their gun in self-defense but they are prepared to do so to defend their lives or the lives of their families if necessary and make no apologies for it. And none necessary.
