Yes, that was the opening to a Fox News story about a homeowner who had to defend her family from an intruder who broke into her home with a crowbar. Anti-gun advocates must be fuming to hear that a homeowner had to use the family gun in self-defense, casting doubt on their case of furthering gun restrictions after the recent Newtown mass shootings.
Democrat members of Congress and their anti-gun lobby friends saw an opportunity to try to push for legislation banning tactical weapons and high capacity magazines after what seems like a stream of mass murders using firearms, most notably the Sandy Creek school shooting and the recent shooting Aurora, Colorado, in which four people were killed, including the shooter.
This incident in Georgia is by no means an isolated case, since hundreds of other similar acts of self-defense have been reported nationwide. In many of these self-defense cases quickly became cases of self-preservation, as intruders were armed with their own firearm or other weapon.
He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater, who has arrests dating to 2008 and was released from jail in August, was still conscious.
“The guy’s face down, crying,” the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again.
While down, the woman and her children ran to a neighbor’s house, and the injured intruder made it out of the home and into his car, the paper reported.

By threatening to pursue stronger gun-control measures, President Obama has proven to be a prolific gun salesman, as gun sales of ammunition, tactical rifles, and all other firearms have ‘shot through the roof.’
Americans will undoubtedly be ‘clinging’ to their guns and keep’em ‘locked and loaded.”
