    Un Believable "The call went on for 21 minutes as the men powered their way into McKinley's house."

    We need many, many, many more people like this. It's a shame the other scumbag wasn't in the line of fire.

    Just saw this on TV. If the intruder wasn't a scumbag he'd still be alive. He had a 21 inch hunting knife with him...she did the right thing

    She did what she had to. Good for her.

    I'm surprised the huffington post would even print this story, liberal as they are. I read several pages of comments after the story and only saw a couple of typical anti-gun posts. Really surprised they didn't disable comments!.

    I noticed she had received legal advice.

    Typical response, after the shooting, while hopped up on adrenalin - "I'm glad he's dead, and if I had to do it over again I'd still shoot him".

    What she said - "I did what I had to do". That would go over much better at the trial, than the first comment would.

    One can only imagine the fear this young woman felt as she blocked her door with a sofa doing what she could to protect herself, and her child.

    GOOD FOR HER!!

    God bless her, and her son!

    granted, I agree with all that has been said above. but I gotta wonder, will she have mental health issues or great fear of strangers? I feel the surviving intruder should be held responsible in some form for that.

    Sometimes this is the case. This time I hope that this young woman does OK in the weeks, months, and years to follow. I pray that I never find myself in this situation. Taking another persons life is not a reason to celebrate, but to morn. She did the right thing. I applaud her courage, and fortitude. And wish her well in the future. Still having a problem with the fact that she was on the phone with 911 for 21 minutes, and no police in all that time. I wonder, just when did the police arrive? Remember, The police are only minutes away, when seconds count!!
