    Woman with a gun stops crime

    "{The burglar} got halfway in and was met halfway by my girlfriend with a firearm…She saw him and as soon as they made eye contact, he bolted," he said.

    The couple believes the intruder showed up to their home using an alley right behind their house - and that's the same way he left running out of the back door after the victim pointed her gun.

    Good for the them. Though it is a shame the crook is still out there free to try again in someone else's home.

    Hoax

    This has to be a hoax, guns are only used for killing people and committing crimes. Guns are NEVER used in self defense situations, she should have simply called the police to let them handle everything.

    I'd say that's a successful example of handgun control.

    Having a gun and not shooting it can be the greatest form of control (no sarcasm intended)

    Absolutely, so many times the mere presence of a SEEN firearm leads to the changing of the minds of those who just previously were intent upon the 'SOFT VICTIM'!
