A woman is alive today because she had a firearm to protect herself with and knew how to use it. When an escaped inmate broke into her house in the middle of the night, grabbed a weapon, and headed towards her bedroom, she shot him in the head and stopped him in his tracks. Because of her swift, brave actions she likely avoided the unthinkable.
The Sheriff commended her actions by saying: "This was a big guy. If she hadn't had a weapon there's no telling what would have happened," he said. "I gave her a big hug. I told her how proud I was of her." Sheriff Clark said the incident was “a shining example” of why owning and knowing how to properly use a gun is important.
Owning a firearm and having the right training saved her life that night.
