How Should an Elderly Person Defend Themselves?

Without the means to defend themselves effectively, the elderly and the infirm would be at the mercy of the young and the violent. Elderly homeowner shoots intruder in Holly Hill | WCBD When confronted by an old man and a shotgun, he wanted to get away, but he pushed the door into his intended victim.
Police said that’s when the homeowner’s twelve-gauge shotgun went off and hit the burglar in the right shoulder.
He had to be airlifted to a local trauma center. No word on his condition. (A solid hit with a 12-gauge is usually fatal, this must have mostly missed him.)

If you break into enough homes, you will eventually meet an armed resident. Results in that case are fairly predicable.

Self-defense is a human right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
