I totally agree as a single mother who lives off the beaten path (I live down a back road closest neighbor is about a mile away) when I first thought about buying this house my dad took me out and bought me, my 1st 9mm and then also gave me my old .223 hunting rifle both of which are always locked and loaded. I would not think twice about shooting an intruder who found me while I was trying to hide with my child.

As unfortunate as it is that someone got shot, do not intrude upon a mother and her offspring.
Good for her, and even better that she knew what to do as opposed to freezing stiff scared and this ending up in a much more tragic manner.
