A 50 year old woman in Detroit, who has lived in the same home for 20 years, took her brother’s advice last year when she bought a gun and got her carry permit.

Of course, in this situation, the carry permit wasn’t in play since the incident happened inside the woman’s home, but I always like to point out when carry permit holders use their guns in a defensive situation since anti-gunners like to say it never happens.

The woman armed herself when a 24 year old male broke a window to her home with a crowbar.

Despite repeated warnings from the woman that she was armed and would shoot, the suspect still entered the home.

That’s when the woman opened fire and hit the suspect once in the arm. That was enough to stop the attack right there.

According to local media reports, the woman was on the phone with a 911 operator throughout the incident.

The suspect was taken by authorities to an area hospital for treatment of his wounds, which were described as “temporarily serious”.

This is the 46th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Michigan and the 1,112th defensive gun use overall. We’ve also documented over 7 defensive gun uses in Detroit alone this year.
