How Should a 60-year-old Woman Defend Herself?

They probably thought it would be easy to rob her. They were wrong. Jeanerette woman shoots, wounds home invaders

Two would-be burglars chose the wrong home to break into Wednesday morning. A possible home invasion was thwarted when the 60-year-old homeowner turned the tables on the interlopers, leaving one in the hospital and the second on the run and possibly wounded.

Without some technological means to equalize a situation like this, the old and infirm will be at the mercy of the young and the violent. (Not that 60 is old.) The few can be overpowered by several assailants. So what do the gun-fearing idiots think should have happened?

One guy is in the hospital on his way to lockup. The other guy is on the run.

You could say they suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process. Self-defense is a human-right.
