Home Invader Meets Armed Homeowner

What would you do if someone smashed a door in your home at 12:45 AM? Tulsa World: Lincoln County woman shoots, kills intruder
Donna Jackson, 57, was asleep when she heard Billy Dean Riley pounding on her back door about 12:45 a.m., Sheriff Chuck Mangion said.

While on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, Jackson went to investigate and Riley tossed a patio table through the glass door before coming inside. She fired one blast from a 16-gauge shotgun, hitting him in the chest, Mangion said.
No charges against the homeowner, because she acted in her own defense.

The guy who was shot was dead by the time police arrived.

So, how should a single woman react to a man breaking into her home if not with the use of a firearm? This guy may have been drunk, but he was certainly violent. So what would you do? What would you advise your wife/mother/sister/daughter to do?

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