    Thank God she lives in a state like Oklahoma where innocent people can protect themselves and thier loved ones without being imprisoned. This is what I've talked about recently with others. When someone's busting in your door you cant afford the time it takes to determine who or what he is or how he's armed, not when the lives of you and your loved one's are at stake. She absolutely did the right thing.

    The best part is the second would-be robber ran. He later turned himself in to police and is now being charged with the murder of his partner (through some wierd law).
    I hope the babys hearing is OK after being that close to the shotgun blast

    Them boyz messed up just bringing a knife to a gunfight like that. #2 was a coward all the way thru, following his partner cause he had no weapon and immediately cut trail & ran.

    Watched her on Fox this morning. If she's having any issues at all about killing him, she certainly hides it well.

    I applaude this mother. There is one thing more dangeous than a man coming through the door with a knife and that would be a mother with a gun and a baby to protect. It never pays to mess with mother bear, and she proved it.

    I know there are lots of different thoughts about the ultimate home defense weapon.

    But honestly, I can think of NOTHING more intimidating that the thought of facing a scared woman holding a 12 gauge pointed my direction.

    Why were they so hell bent on breaking in, when they knew she was there? What were they after?

    The dead one had been stalking her, for a while. Seen her on Fox today. She's now waiting for the other one whose was there to come after her. He's out on bond. She said she's ready for him, but sooner or later, everybody lets their guard down. I hope she has a lots of friends with guns who will look after her.
