LOGANVILLE, Ga. —A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

But the man eventually found the family. "The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,"

Good argument for a shotgun. And . . . Bloomberg wants this woman unarmed.

"She's standing over him, and she realizes she's fired all six rounds. And the guy's telling her to quit shooting,"

Great argument for 30-round magazines, as well...

Or something larger caliber than a .38. But I believe a.38 is a revolver. 6 chambers, no magazine.

slater has been placed on a ventilator and suffers from punctured lungs, a punctured liver and a punctured stomach.

Even though the guy survived, you really can't fault the woman's shooting. She did a nice head-to-torso placement of her rounds and tagged him 5 of 6. He was apparently just lucky.

God bless this woman. I hope she understands that she was defending her family and I pray she has no problems from her actions.

Good argument for a shotgun. And . . . Bloomberg wants this woman unarmed.

From the article: "The woman then shot him five times, but he survived . . . Slater was shot in the face and neck".

You're right about the shotgun - this guy was still a danger after he was hit with five of her six shots (even though that is pretty good shooting under pressure). I like the stopping power of a 12 gauge whether loaded with a slug, buckshot, or just about anything else at this very short range. Hit a thug with five shots from a 12 gauge, including in the face and neck, and he's not probably going to drive away like this criminal did.

As for Bloomberg, I hope he wises up before his extended family (not his immediate family; they have armed guards) or someone he cares about is hurt because they are disarmed. I hope even more that he wises up before innocent citizens who are not related to him are hurt because of his anti-gun policies.

Great argument for the best hollow points you can buy.

Happy ending.

Actually I hope the guy survives. Then we can see if he changes, having been shot within inches of his life.

This wife/mother did a fine job of protecting herself and her children. She is an example to all as to why our natural, God given right was incorporated into the Second Amendment. Self defense is just one of the Amendment’s purposes. Citizen protection against tyranny or a mob, recreation, hunting, collecting and other firearms related pursuits are as well.

The perp

Chapman said Slater has four exit wounds.

The guy must have an angel looking over his shoulder...Hope this turns him around because he needs to realize being shot six times VERY few people live...
