A grandmother was at home alone in Boynton Beach, Fla. when a man began banging on her door. The grandmother responded by retreating to a bedroom and arming herself with a handgun. Eventually the man and two accomplices broke through the door and entered the home. However, upon seeing the armed grandmother the home invaders fled.
Following the incident, the grandmother told a local news outlet, in relation to having the handgun, “I think it's wonderful. I think it's the only thing that saved me. It was my Godsend. I don't know what I would've done without it. I've never experienced anything like that before in my life. It was horrible, to have three strangers in your house and ransacking it. I was very angry. It's like, how dare you do this! You know. This is our home.” (WPEC, West Palm Beach, Fla. 06/29/16)
