Anne Barry of Bowling Green, Kentucky, knows the importance
of having a firearm. "If I hadn't had that gun, I wouldn't have had
a chance," she said. She was asleep alone in her home when she heard
the sound of her garage door being broken in. She grabbed her .357
Mag. revolver and waited for the intruder, who appeared in her
hallway brandishing a pistol. As he turned to look into another
room, she fired once, hitting the man. He fled, but was arrested
for an alleged break-in not far from Barry's home. "If he would
have turned around, he would have killed me. It was survival. It
was him or me," she said. Police lauded Barry's actions.
