    A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

    The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

    But the man eventually found the family.

    "The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver," Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh. "

    ^^^ In my opinion, sadly there is only one way to make absolute and complete sure that the guy never tried to lay a hand on that woman and her kids later on, and to me, anyone who thinks that victims are not worth the self defense can lay down and start burning right now.

    God bless you always!!! :) :) :)

    Too bad she didn't have an assault weapon, she could have overkilled him multiple times over.

    I'd be tempted to overkill a fucker who busted into my home and chased me and my children down to a closet.

    I'd overkill the shit out of him.

    Good for her. Why in the hell was this asshole in her house? Was it random, or did she know him??

    Baseball bat overkill would probably be equally satisfying in that scenario.

    Point being, you don't need an assault weapon to stop an intruder in your home. Anti gun control is the point of this thread and many others, no?

    The assault weapons ban is something I'd support. Many other rational beings do as well, even Repubs.

    Shut up you hag. An assault weapon is specifically for home intruders. It's the most effective method of stopping a fucking intruder, you moron.

    The point is, she shot him 5 times and he was still able to get to his car. Suppose he had a weapon? 15 rounds probably would have ventilated him sufficiently to remove all threat.

    Or would you rather have a wounded burglar and a dead woman and 2 dead kids? Please try to be realistic here.
    Luckily, 5 holes was enough to end the threat, but what if she had only hit him twice? Would you want to be the one to tell her husband, " Your wife and children died because I advocated smaller magazine capacity?"
