“Top Gun” actress Kelly McGillis has a VERY good reason to believe in the Second Amendment.

In a chilling Facebook account, McGillis wrote of a violent confrontation with a home invader when she returned to her Hendersonville home on June 17. When she drove up the light was on and her front door was unlocked. When McGillis ran outside to call 911 she was attacked by a woman who scratched and bruised her and took her cellphone.

The incident prompted McGillis, who was already a gun owner, to take a more proactive approach to her own defense. She decided to “get a conceal and carry permit,” writing on her Facebook page, “I thank you all for your warm thoughts and love. I’m still a bit shook up and struggling with some residual fear. I do have an alarm. I was complacent and didn’t set it after living here four years and having nothing happen. My bad. She broke my in the garage window and called through by stacking 10 bags of mulch. She threw dog food all over the kitchen floor to distract the dogs. I have three. Honestly they seemed really freaked out by the whole thing. I have decided to get a conceal and carry permit. And you can be sure I will be setting the alarm from here on out.”

The perp, 38-year-old Laurence Dorn according to WTVD-TV, was arrested and charged with stalking, assault and battery and other counts.

It didn’t even take a week for McGillis to take the required course and post a nice score on the range. Next time, she’ll be ready.
