In Alabama, a 69 year old grandmother shoots a burglar, and gets a nice writeup, complete with a picture of her holding the gun. What's astonishing is, the story is carried by the New York Daily News.
Hat tip to Sixgun Sarah...
And she even has her finger off the trigger. Good work, Ma'am!

Best line is this quote from the woman: "I hope this will make people have second thoughts before they break into a home in our neighborhood."

One reason I like living in the South, people here tend to take care of things all on their own without having to call 911.
