I wish someone on the gun-hating Left would say what she should have done, without the use of a firearm. ’I reached over and got my shotgun, and I cocked it’: Grandma fends off would-be burglar
This is a couple of weeks old, but still worth a look.
“I reached over and got my shotgun. And I cocked it, and I told him to stay right there,” she said. “Told him to go sit on the steps. I followed him out, and I just stood here with the shotgun waiting for the police to come.”
It was Sandy’s first time using the shotgun, which she got years ago to protect her family as a single mother. She was initially “scared to death” while holding the intruder at gunpoint.
“But then I was totally calm, really and truly. I thought, ‘This is amazing!’ I said, ‘You know, I’ve got grandchildren your age!’”
There is quite a bit. What the robber said, what police said. But this is the point I like.
“After he was so meek and mild and sat down like I told him to do? It was empowering. I felt like at least I was in charge. I wasn’t afraid,” she said.
And no one got hurt.
