Ph. D. Student Uses Gun to Defend Herself, Home


After two days of thefts occurring at her home, Betty Collins was surprised by someone trying to kick her door in just before 5:00 am.  Clearly, the would-be home invader had no fear of someone being home.  He wanted in, and the front door wasn't going to stop him. 

Ms. Collins yelled that she had a gun and told the man to leave, he didn't.  She opened the door with her .357 magnum pistol in hand and demanded that the man lay on the ground until the police arrive.  They did arrive and took the man into custody.

Ms. Collins credited the rights under the Second Amendment and her firearm ownership for allowing her to defend herself and her home from certain jeopardy.
