Gun control......the two handed grip

OGANVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia mother who shot an intruder at her home has become a small part of the roaring gun control debate, with some firearms enthusiasts touting her as a textbook example of responsible gun ownership.
Melinda Herman grabbed a handgun and hid in a crawl space with her two children when a man broke in last week and approached the family at their home northeast of Atlanta, police said. Herman called her husband on the phone, and with him reminding her of the lessons she recently learned at a shooting range, Herman opened fire, seriously wounding the burglary suspect.

NewGuy- This kind of story is good to publish. There are so many liberals out there who think your gun should be locked away in a gun safe. That wouldn't have worked here. There are so many liberals who think because THEY haven't had to use deadly force, then it is some kind of a fetish for people who realize they may need to and prepare themselves to be ready to do so in protection of their loved ones or themselves.
The one positive point in this current national debate is the liberals showcase their complete and abject ignorance when it comes to self-defense.
The liberals have come to except their own childlike roll in the Nanny State. One insane child acts so every child must be punished. F@#$ the individual and his rights.
Let's say there were multiple intruders as there often is in home invasions. Even 30 rounds may call for a 1.5 second reload with another 30 round magazine.
Cops do not carry large capacity magazines (my son is required to carry at least two extra 16 round magazines for his 40 cal.) to protect you, they carry them to protect themselves.

Yet Another- If you google "woman shoots burglar" you will get many sources for many stories including the one posted. Typically Left leaning "news" media refrains from prioritizing these many stories.

Well, here is an example of use of an AR15 by a minor to protect himself and his sister.

The liberal mind-set:

Tax the rich to solve the spending problem.

Restrict gun ownership for law abiding citizens.

Give foreign terrorists protection under the US Constitution.

Force citizens to buy health insurance. Don't force people to prove they are a citizen to vote.
