Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder

Five out of six rounds of .38 in the face or neck, but didn't blow his pumpkin off. Good woman, did an outstanding job.

Same publication, other side of the coin

FAIRBURN, Ga. A relative of the woman who was shot several times after she ran and hid from home invaders said she is doing OK. But Otis Burden is hurting and angry over how the burglars were heartless to shoot a defenseless woman.

This is a good example to use when opposing restrictions on magazine size. She needed more rounds to stop the threat. He was hit five times and was still functional enough to represent a clear and present danger to the victims. She's just lucky that there was not additional perps to deal with. Much better to have a pistol with a normal capacity magazine so that you have 17 rounds to fire before stopping to reload.

When someone says "Why do you need 20 or 30 round magazines?", paint a verbal picture of this gal, backed into a dead end room, with all her young's tucked in behind her, holding an empty j frame and no reloads. If there had been a second attacker or if she had missed any of the five or if any of the five had not landed in the right spot or if the dude had just a little more dope in his system..........she and all the kids would likely not have had a happy outcome.
