Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Gestating Edition

Few creatures are more protective than a mother is of her child. Which probably had something to do with the response two Fortuna, California burglers provoked when they broke into a home where an unidentified pregnant woman was alone. . .

This from times-standard.com:

The woman saw two men enter her home on the 3100 block of College Avenue and — unable to get to a phone — she pointed the handgun at them, saying she did not want to shoot and ordering them to leave, according to the Fortuna Police Department. When the men continued to advance, the woman fired the gun, missing the suspects and striking an interior wall. She called 911 at 11:27 a.m., notifying police that the suspects had fled.

Cops are on the lookout for the two would-be robbers. If you’ve seen a couple of guys in their 20′s, about 5’8″ tall who smell like they could use a diaper change, give the Fortuna PD a call. They’re offering a $1,000 reward.
