Had it not been for this woman's actions, we would have been reading a very different headline.

TIERRA VERDE - Meghan Brown had fired her pink .38-caliber handgun only inside a shooting range. Even there, she said, she wasn't very good
"She could have easily ran out that door and went to a neighbor's. She could have gone away. Instead, she kept her calm, grabbed her gun, and did everything the proper way," he said.

State records show Hill had been in and out of prison since 1986 for burglary, grand theft, selling cocaine and other crimes. Hill was last arrested in Pinellas County in February for disorderly intoxication.

The quote from the bad guys girlfriend that he is turning his life around? Why wasnt he home with her then. It is a sad story, but i applaud the women for taking action. These robbers, Rappers etc... has to know that they are putting themselves in harms way also. You play you pay. Another repeat offender. i quess this bad guy was not reabilated. What a shock. Good for them they seem like nice people, if you cant be safe in your home, then what have you got? Really, sounds like cut and dry to me, i would have done the same. Bravo

All the social engineering you can think of and all the money you can borrow to pay for it, can't match a few rounds from the gun of an armed citizen.

My wife saw this on the news and came in to talk with me. She just said, "it's time for me to get a gun.I want a shotgun AND a handgun."

"OK."

The report said they were both fighting for their lives in their home.... He bought her the pink pistol, and when they went to the range that she wasn't a great shot..........

1+ for the good guys and pink guns.....just think if she was in Nassau county, and what the Pistol Div. would do if she used a pink gun,,,,, what would Newsday say? Vicious home owner attacks harmless home invader………..family said he was such a good boy,,,,,, he must have just gotten lost and was asking directions……

Is pink the new "assault weapon?"

PS. the wife put her app. in 2 weeks ago :)

Glad it worked out for her.

But...the "arborist" let his wife go answer a knock on the door at 3am while he stayed in bed?
Hmmmm.....

This is the perfect example of why need to be careful with mandatory training and proficiency tests. She was not a good shot at the range and yet was able to defend her life when needed. Shooting a bullseye at 15yrds has little to do with self defense at point blank range.
