A Mother Defends Her Children

WBIR.COM - Mother fires three shots at intruder You're home with your kids when someone breaks into your kitchen. What do you do?
[Suzanne] Carson went for a gun, with only one thought.

"The first thing actually was my kids," Carson said.

She thought, "Ok, I'm going to have to do something to protect them."
Yelling at the guy didn't stop. The first gunshot didn't stop him - he came into the house after the first shot. The next 2 shots scared him away. (Police don't know if he was hit or not.)
It scares Carson to even think about what he wanted, this time.

She believes he was also outside her home Thursday night, when she was home alone with her children again.

"They actually tried to open one of the playroom windows," she explained.
She knows what she will do. What would you do?

While I believe self-defense is a human right, I also believe that parents are morally obligated to protect their children.
