Hero Mom

Why exactly isn’t this mom being venerated on every news channel in the country for being the hero that she is?  Why do we celebrate when government agents kill a bad guy, but a brave mother protecting her children gets no respect?  Why do we think it would be more noble if this mother sacrificed herself to save her kids rather than showing them the virtues of strength, determination, and the will to survive?  Why can’t anti-gun advocates understand that guns are merely tools – tools that can be, and are, used to save innocent lives?

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,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
