If this resourceful, courageous woman did not have a personal defense gun and the knowledge of how to use it, only God knows what would have happened to her.
There are predators in our society, make sure that you and everyone in your family will be protected.
Teach your children gun safety and how to shoot. Encourage them to invest, because personal defense is an investment, in a home defense and personal defense firearm.
