Oregon Mom Shoots Intruder In Child’s Bedroom

posted on June 30, 2016

When a mom in Portland came home to find an intruder in the bedroom of one of her children, she reached for her gun. 

Police responding to the call say the homeowner was returning home early Sunday morning with her two children, ages 5 and 10, when they encountered the man. The woman then used her own handgun to shoot the 59-year-old invader, who later died.  

A neighbor told KOIN 6 News that before the mother and daughters moved into the house, there had been “a lot of mischief” and “a few squatters in and out of there.” Police have not released the name of the mother, but report she has been cooperating with investigators.

If gun-control advocates were honest, they would look at what really makes Americans safer, but they aren't interested in this. In reality, they're far more interested in something else.
