Las Vegas, NV –-( WVTM TV 13 NBC reports this week (7/29/2016) in Birmingham, Alabama, Officers from were dispatched to a home on Ethel Avenue around 2:20 a.m. The resident heard an unusual sound and called 911.

The sound she had heard was an intruder taking the air conditioner out of her window and climbing inside. She grabbed her pink Millennium 9 pistol, walked out of the bedroom door and saw a male intruder in the hallway.

She said “He was kind of close to me so I shot and he fell”. At that point, she turned on the lights and called 911.

She told Officers, “This was my first time pointing and shooting. I never been to a gun range. I never went to target practice or anything. I was just, at the time, protecting myself.” She said she shot two or three times, hitting the intruder once.

The man was taken to UAB and is expected to recover, according to police.

She bought the pistol two years ago for protection. She’s lived in this home for seven months and her house has already been broken into three times. Two days prior she had heard somebody trying to break in at the same spot. Now five months pregnant, she plans on moving. DUH

Her comment to the media:

She said she’s not scared, but “It was immediate. Once I saw him I instantly, it was just fire, it was adrenaline rush, scared, need to protect myself and my child. It was just fire at that time. It wasn’t no see who it was. It was pitch black. All the lights was off. So I didn’t turn any of the lights on because if he came in and saw me, he could have harmed me before I harmed him.”

“You have to protect yourself. Without a doubt. Take matters into your own hands. Get some type of protection. Don’t take anything for granted. You got to protect you and your child. Be strong. If it comes down to that, then that’s what you have to do. Don’t be scared.”


Terrific! Hopefully when this idiot recovers, he’ll find a new career!

Having a gun even without training is way ahead of being an unarmed victim. Imagine how cool under threat she would have been with firearm instruction and some actual practice!

According to researcher John Lott’s recent research findings, “The number of women with permits has increased twice as quickly as the number of men with permits.”

Black Lives Matter! Which one matters most, the threat or the protector? If Hillary wins, the intruder will have more rights than the honest, hard working homeowner!

The guy will recover and file a lawsuit against her and probably win !
The threat never ends until there’s no life left in the lawsuit waiting to happen !
Removing the threat, removes any potential extra damage to life and property.


When the idiot reoccurs and is let off with a slap on the wrist, he may very well retaliate. next time, shoot often, and use proper expanding self-defense ammo


In Hillary’s dream world she will take the ability, as in this girls case, away for you to protect yourself or loved ones and label it something like “HILLARY’S GUN CONTROL, I’M MAKING YOU SAFE”… In reality, the ONLY person affected would be law abiding citizens like this girl who quite possibly saved two lives. NOT ONE criminal will be affected by ANY gun control laws, ZERO !
TRUMP 2016 !

Like many have said before , they can have my guns when they pull the from my cold dead hands. Government has no right to take away or regulate a God given right. Hopefully they read this. Tyranny will not be tolerated in any way shape or form.


Just think, if hililary gets her way, she’ll be the only one protected.
