She needs to work on her reaction time. She should have been able to get a shot off before he closed the door.

"...he saw that I had the gun, and he grabbed the door handle and pulled the door shut."

Oh great. Now Biden and Feinstein can say this proves you can have a gun, but you don't need ammunition.

Good thing she had a gun or she’s likely not have lived to tell of it.

3 potential assailants against a .32 - probably a revolver. Good thing she intercepted them before entering or she may have been in some trouble.

Don't burglars knock first?

Shouldn't she just let them know someone is at home?

The left wants to prevent people from defending themselves and their property. The left wants the crook to waltz right in and take what is “rightfully” his from those “evil oppressors”

Some will knock to see if anyone is home and then break in. Or they may realize its a woman and come in anyway.

Look what they’ve done in England. Its basically illegal to defend yourself there.

3 men.

A few shots each to stop the threat + a few misses > 10 rounds.

A shotgun would be better. A pistol & AR-15 are both good for
home defense. I think the shotgun has a slight lead.

A BIT OF HISTORY – It turns out that Barack Obama, when he was in the Illinois State Senate, opposed legislation that would have allowed a citizen to fire a handgun in defense of his life in his own home. Hmm. The bill passed anyway, without his support.

There is just no fixing stupid.
Just recently in Corpus Christi, Tx a 15 year old girl let a stange man into her apartment who asked to use the bathroom and was raped.
Didn’t she have the brains to know not to do this?
Where was her mother?
Didn’t her mother teach her any better??

Alternately, they may allow one to have the ammunition, but no gun. Just point the ammunition at the bad guy, and watch him run away.

In the best case scenario, Binden and Feinstein and Obama, might "compromise" and allow the right of people to warn the bad guys about about having a gun, but no real gun. I'm pretty sure that many republican congresspeople will opt for the fake gun scenario.

I agree, and for several reasons.

Wouldn't want to hear one go off in an enclosed house though....ouch!
