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.
