It’s kind of amazing how being in a life and death situation can change one’s mind about firearm ownership in a split second.
That’s exactly what happened in Palmview, TX several days ago.
A pregnant woman, who wishes to remain unidentified, was home alone when she heard someone banging loudly on her front door. Since she was home along, the woman did not answer the door, however at the same time, a second suspect was breaking into the home at the back door.
Fearing for her life, the woman grabbed her husband’s .40SW handgun and called 911.
Once the men saw the woman was armed, they fled back to their waiting truck. Wanting to make sure the intruders were gone for good, the woman opened fire on the truck as the men were getting in it.
The woman told Action 4 News that she was originally against guns in the home, but this incident changed her mind,
“I was against him buying a gun maybe 7-8 months ago, but I told him, ‘I don’t know if I told you, thank you for doing that’ because it changed the situation completely,” said Alex.
The suspects were arrested in a nearby home after a long standoff with police and SWAT officers.
This story could have ended very differently if not for the presence of a gun inside the home.
The gun used appears to be a Smith and Wesson Sigma, .40 caliber based on the video.
