You go girl.

From Fox News: A South Carolina mother-of-three took action after she heard a man attempting to break into her home – and shot him.

Ashley Jones of Anderson County told FOX Carolina she heard someone banging at her door early on Thursday (last month). The mother said she called 911 and got her gun. She said she saw a man banging at her door when she peered out the window.

“I yelled, ‘I have a gun, I will shoot you, get away from my house,’” Jones said.

She said she used her gun after the intruder kicked her door in to come inside the home. Video surveillance outside her home captured the incident.

So then he kicks the door in as soon as he kicks the door in and tries to take a step in my house that’s when I shot him and he ran off, she recalled. “Something just came over me, I got calm and my heart slowed down.”

The mother said she “would’ve killed him if I had to” if the intruder tried to come inside her home. She said she was thankful she had protection because she didn’t think she could fight off the man. “Because if I didn’t have any kind of weapons I don’t know what I would have did. That guy was kind of big,” she said.

“I wouldn’t have been able to fight him off. I never thought I would have to shoot that gun, ever,” she continued.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect was later identified as Cecil Charles Parnell, 42, of Anderson, was charged with first-degree burglary and was booked in the Anderson County Detention Center, FOX Carolina reported. The woman who was with the suspect during the incident was not charged, the Anderson Independent Mail reported.

“Any mother is going to protect her kid any way she can. And that’s what I did,” Jones told WSPA.

  1. Yep, well you said it all and said it well, so I don’t need to repeat that. It does go to show, however, that as an article yesterday at FotM pointed out, firearm training starts early, so children should learn to use them, not merely play with toy guns.

  2. One will notice, that America hating Soros DemocRat/Communist groups do not go to states like SC to attack US citizens, because of concealed carry laws.

  3. I’m glad she was armed. Seems like we tend to think it’ll never happen to US,but even if we think that,we should ALWAYS be prepared for the possibility the unlikely WILL happen.
    Has ANYBODY had a chance to discuss with a serious gun control advocate WHY they think taking the guns away from lawful gun owners would make them safe from CRIMINALS? I’m figuring that’s a NO answer,because there’s NO excuse for that line of “reasoning”. That ALWAYS brings us back to the old argument that gun control isn’t about guns as much as it’s about CONTROL. If I wanted to be CONTROLLED,I’d move to CHINA.

    • “Serious” gun control advocates don’t think about unintended consequences, they only think about politically opportunistic talking points of the moment. They are solely & overwhelmingly a body of united linear thinkers, otherwise AKA “Dimorats,” who would “throw the baby out with the bathwater” every given instance/chance, and then whine and roll around on the floor a few years later about the awful situations their constituants are in (ahhhh…..the “situation” their complaining/vengeful VOTERS are in) and then blame it on the president who didn’t veto them, but signed their hideously short-sighted bills into law.

    • Hear, hear! That’s what people should focus on when confronted with these idiots. “You mean you want me to give up my God-given right to defend myself and others?”. I mean, sure, I’d rather be a victim. How on earth can they punish someone for defending themselves?

  4. We are all created by God with certain inalienable or unalienable rights, and one of those rights is self-defense and defense of innocent human life.
    Yet if this happened in New York City, the District Attorney of the county of the event would have to, by law, submit the matter to a grand jury. And depending on the newsworthiness of the case, such a D.A. would convene one grand jury after another until he found one to indict—as happened with Bernhardt Goetz in 1985.

    Today in England, a homeowner is not necessarily allowed, by law, to fire a gun at an intruder in self-defense. The world is going crazy; It’s mothers like Mrs. Jones that maintain whatever sanity we have left. KUDOS!

  5. She needs to work on her gun control – the intruder lived. If she had better gun control the intruder would have died on the spot.
    Remember that when seconds count, the police are only fifteen minutes or so away.

  6. What a woman! What a Mom! Just like a lioness defending her cubs. No hesitation but using her head to the fullest.

  7. Too bad he wasn’t DRT.*

    * Dead Right There

  8. Good for her! Protecting your home and family is the most basic Right… The 2nd Ammendment is not for duck hunting as someone once said… I have a friend in England that has a shotgun certificate and several shotguns… He was telling me about the bullshit they have to go thru to even own a gun… If you met a burglar at the door with your shotgun there YOU would be doing time instead of the scumbag breaking in…
