Woman Hiding with Kids Shoots Intruder

LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Friday, Jan. 4, 2013
A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
Husband Donnie Herman said.
"My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner,"

In this case, you migth be

In this case, you might be able to use the statement/arguement: "Think of the children."
Just think, if she not had that gun, they might have been killed.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.


A frightened woman and two small children, a very large bad man coming for them.
A gun, the great equalizer


She should have had some actual bullets

Must have been using blanks or something if he took 5 shots to the head and didn't even go unconscious! Seriously, hollow point ammunition. Why get a gun to defend yourself if you don't get ammo to defend yourself? It was lucky here but if you take 5 shots at someone and they're still conscious, that's cutting it too damn close.

I would say it is

the perfect argument for why a person WOULD need a "hi-Cap" magazine.
Most people who argue against hi-cap mags have no clue that shooting someone 5-6 times is not always enough to stop an attacker. Espescially since the person being attacked is under pressure and every shot is not going to be a kill shot. This woman is lucky she hit him with all the bullets she had...one less hit and he might have still gotten hold of her or one of her kids.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

And what if there were more than one intruder?

Such as in the video of the three burglers breaking in. All the more reason one would want to invest in a semi automatic weapon with as many bullets in it as possible.

Soooo...will they confiscate her gun now?

Seems like the kind of logic being used in Congress as of late.

She's a hero... Now arrest

She's a hero... Now arrest her!

but what about the safety of the children!

One of the kids or BOTH of the kids could have gotten their hands on that gun and hurt themselves with it.

She should have did the now American thing which is

1. call 911
2. wait for "help"

It is people like this lady who makes gun regulation not only important but a necessity!




I still wonder where anti gun activists get their talking points or how the hell they rationalize disarming LAW ABIDING citizens?

I applaud this woman and hope other moms follow her lead and get trained to properly defend yourself and family from anything.

I hope the doctors and nurses only give him a minimum of

help. This POS deserves to be dead as fuk. I would hate to see any taxpayer money spent to house/feed this low life.he was looking for the family it sounds like. Otherwise he would have grabbed stuff and ran...instead he was searching the house for the woman. He had NO good intentions. If I was the Husband/Dad I would want to finish the job.

*on a side note, I would point out how much of a benefit a semi-auto with hi-capacity magazine would have been.This woman almost didnt have enough bullets to stop this guy.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

I thought about that too.

Why did he not just rob them and leave? Why did he go looking for the family...maybe the woman? And they were in the attic crawl space. It is not a place to look for things to steal.

nope...it sure isnt where you look for items to steal

I would say he was looking to do something much more horrific.
I am not very religious, but if there is a hell, I hope this trash dies and goes there to burn.

She should think

about upgrading her ammo.
