Mother Opens Fire to Protect Her Children

A young mother in Marietta, Georgia, opened fire on Thursday, killing a home invasion suspect while her three small children were at home.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the mother called 911 saying someone “attempted to break into her home and she shot him.” Officers arrived at the resident on Griggs Street to find the suspect deceased. The incident occurred just after 2 a.m.

Marietta police Officer Chuck McPhilamy said the neighborhood is a quiet one and the call about a home invasion was surprising.

The neighbor of the mother who shot the suspect said she was surprised to hear the news as well, but admitted the situation makes her think the makeup of the neighborhood may be changing. She is now thinking about getting her own gun.

The mother’s three children are staying with other family members while the police conduct their investigation.

      Can you believe these idiots turning in their guns? What stupidity when it comes to self preservation and that of a family when some no good intruder tries to force his/her way into a home to do harm.
      Keep the NRA strong!!!

      OF COURSE IT IS JUSTIFIABLE. WOULDN’T ANY MOTHER DO SO TO PROTECT HER CHILDREN. I WOULD AND WOULDN’T THINK TWICE ABOUT IT. I HOPE TO GOD I NEVER HAVE TO, BUT THEY ARE FIRST. IF HE IS AN INTRUDER HE DESERVED WHAT HE GOT.

    Thank the Lord this woman was armed and ready to defend her children, herself and her home. The intruder got what he deserved. I’m glad to see more and more women getting guns and defending their families when harm is at their door.

    Those doing home invasions 99% of the time do not come from the neighborhood where the home invasion occurs. It has been a known fact the robberies and burglaries, etc are committed by outsiders and not by locals.
    Because a home invasion occurs does not mean the neighborhood where it occurred is changing got the worse. It alert the residents in that neighborhood the need to protect their lives and property from the invaders from another neighborhood. If a neighborhood is known to be well armed, home invaders will not try an invasion there.

    The resident who shot and killed the invader saved the taxpayers money.

    I have a 9mm on my computer speaker, 3 other guns within reach here, a .380 and a .22 at my front door, a .357 at my bedside with several others on the nightstand, never had a break in attempt in 27 years. 4 NRA benefactor member decals on my car don’t hurt either! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/50f62c7298a20d7a1318f3b6167662a5921132f0afe742d147cfe9974eeb284b.jpg

    Well if she did not kill the home invader she and her kids could be killed and nothing will happen to the invader, the justice system will not charge the invader and let him go free like all the other killers ..

    Everyone should thank the NRA for the gun rights that we have, and for the foresight of people like General U.S. Grant in forming the NRA in 1871 in New York, of all places. Without the NRA, the Second Amendment would have been eliminated by Democrats eons ago. All other rights would have followed. Every American citizen should be members of the NRA!
