Mother of Twins Shoots Intruder Five Times in Face and Neck

Supporters of the right to bear arms speak of crime rates dropping and the increased security of law-abiding citizens. Stories like this one bear some of that out. A Georgia mother living in a three story home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville heard a ringing to the door bell last Friday as she worked in her upstairs office. Suspecting it was a solicitor, she told her 9-year-old twins not to answer it. When the ringing persisted, she called her husband, who told her to hide in the crawl space with the kids while he called 911. And this she did, after grabbing her gun.

The man at the door than used a crowbar to pry his way in and went about burgling the place, moving from room to room. When he finally got to the crawl space in the attic, as Walton County Sherriff Joe Chapman says it, “The perpetrator opens the door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver.”

She proceeded to shoot six times: one bullet missed, the others hit him in the face and neck.


“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting.”

At that point, the woman and her kids ran to the neighbors. Meanwhile, the intruder managed to get back into his car, only to crash into a nearby wooded area.

“When you got five bullets in you, it makes you kind of disoriented,” explained Chapman. By the time police arrived he was gasping on the sidewalk begging the police for help.

The burglar is 32-year-old Atlanta resident Paul Slater. He had four exit wounds of the five bullets that hit him and had difficult surgeries ahead of him. He was also charged with burglary.

The woman’s husband, meanwhile, is proud of her. “My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner.”

    This story needs to be circulated, but the liberals will squash it. They might charge the lady for attempted murder due to her shooting a poor little innocent church goer on his way home from donating time reading scripture to the under privileged and blind. His mother will say what a good boy he was and didn’t deserve to be shot as he was lost and only trying to find his way home and wouldn’t harm a tick on a hound dog!

    Don’t be stupid Bob. There is no chance she would be prosecuted and no gun control advocate would call for that. Of course, she could have used a little more training as apparently she couldn’t kill a guy at point blank range.

    In any event, statistically it was more likely that she or her spouse would have shot the other with the gun, or her kids would have used it accidentally or a burglar would have stolen it one day and it would have been used in a crime.

    “Liberals” don’t have a problem with personal ownership of guns as long the owner has passed a background check and has required licensing/training and perhaps bonding or insurance. None of that would have stopped this woman from having her gun presumably.

    Good for her and protecting her family! I sure hope that after they spend our tax dollars saving this worthless piece of fecal. They have better sense than to loose site of the fact that he was invading their personal property and was prepared to do harm if she had not gotten the upper hand.
