In yet another case of an American using a gun to defend themselves from those who wish to do them harm, an 86 year-old woman was able to fend off a burglar who broke into her home.

WCYB reports that the woman claims to have been the victim of several burglaries before the one is question. However, when this thief broke in Ms. Howard broke out her gun. (h/t Jammie Wearing Fool)

Just like the mother who used a semi-automatic handgun to protect herself and her son from masked intruders, this 86 year-old woman shows exactly how guns can be an incredible equalizer.

How else could these women have stood up to attackers who outnumber or can overpower them? Guns are easily the most effective means for these women to defend themselves.

If you deny them the means to self-defense, you deny them the right to self-defense.
