Georgia woman hides with twins, empties gun on home intruder

A Loganville, Georgia woman demonstrated the Second Amendment’s true purpose and saved herself and her 9-year-old twins in the process when an intruder broke into their home Friday afternoon using a crowbar.

When the homeowner realized she was about to become the victim of a home invasion, she and her children retreated into an attic crawlspace, where the intruder, Paul Slater, 32, found her.

“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told WSBT Channel 2.

The woman fired at Slater, hitting him five times and emptying her gun in the process. She kept her weapon pointed at him and threatened to shoot again if he moved.

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

Eventually the police were called and Slater was arrested.

What follows is a WSBT-TV Atlanta news account of the incident.

    Tragic that she had to shoot a man to protect herself and her children, but it is so preferable an outcome to her and her children being the victims of this animal that it is impossible to feel anything but relief. She and her kids are safe and a criminal is going to prison via the hospital. I doubt he has health insurance, so I assume the Obama fans out there will point to him as proof of the value of ObamaCare!

      Tragic? The kid makes a conscious decision to try and harm another person and gets punished for it. I would call it justice.

      I once had to shoot an armed intruder in my home after he'd broken into several other homes in our area and was using stolen guns to threaten residents. When he broke into my home and I caught him, I gave him one warning to get down on the floor and surrender and then he reached for a weapon and he is not alive anymore. He was armed with a stolen 9mm pistol and a large knife.

    Bravo, this is exactly why the 2nd amendment is good. I am glad no one was killed but if she would not have had a weapon there is no telling what the intruder would have done.

    I just acquired and registered my Ruger 38 special…I am 74 yrs old and have always feared guns, but NOW I fear these idiots more than the gun. Why was this animal still walking free after 6 arrests? Maybe we need to fear our spineless Justice

    system who just slap criminals on the wrist and turn them loose on us again…DON'T COME NEAR MY HOUSE OR YOU'LL BE DEAD…. I took the classes and I practice regularly!!

    She needs to hit the range and practice. Once shot should have killed him. Why waste the rounds?

      Are you suggesting that it would have been better to kill the intruder? She effectively put him out of commission and made him feel the real terror she and her children were forced to feel by his home invasion. She wounded him and he had to beg her to stop shooting. He will feel the effects of that crime for a lifetime-I hope he dreams about it every night, repeating over and over in his head. Very effective if you ask me, also may cause another person considering a home invasion to think twice before entering someone else's house whom they assume is not home just because they don't answer the door.
