A clear case of self-defense rallies supporters of gun rightsSubmitted by Suzanimal on Sun, 05/05/2013 - 21:27
This story made the DP when it happened but I didn't comment on it because it hit a little too close to home. Actually, about 2 miles from my house and I'm home most days alone with just my kids and the garage door open, heck if it's nice outside the front door is open too. For awhile there, I was on edge going around locking doors but I got over it, kinda had to, I locked myself out of the house...twice. Anyway, here's a little update on how my little corner of the world is dealing with crime. I encourage you to follow the link and read the whole story.
"In LOGANVILLE, Ga. — Melinda Herman was at home, working upstairs in her office, when she saw a man coming to her front door. Her 9-year-old twins were off from school that day. Don’t answer it, she yelled downstairs, as the doorbell rang several times. From her window, Herman watched the man return to his silver SUV. Instead of leaving, he pulled out a crowbar and turned back for the front door with the decorative wreath.
By the time Herman called her husband at work to say an intruder was in the house, she had rushed both children into an upstairs bedroom and locked two doors behind her. She also had retrieved a .38 from the gun safe. The only place left to hide was a crawl space that led to the attic, and that’s where Herman crouched, with her son and daughter beside her and a revolver in her hand."
