This Woman Was Anti-Gun Until The Unthinkable Happened

Liberals have been taunting gun owners for decades, proudly wearing the “anti-gun” label and insisting those who carry guns are violent and hateful.

And as one Mississippi woman, Lori Shelton, reluctantly admitted, she was no different. Shelton was anti-gun to the core, until she came face-to-face with an intruder in her home.

Realizing her husband was at work, and her daughter was sound asleep, it suddenly occurred to her for the first time she was completely helpless and unable to protect herself and her sleeping daughter.

All she could do was call 911, and pray the intruder didn’t kill her.

Breitbart reports:

Shelton said, “I was getting ready for work doing my normal routine, and I heard a noise as I was getting out of the shower.” She looked to see the source of the noise and “saw a man coming through the back of the house.”  She said, “The first thing I thought was I gotta do something.” But she was limited on options: her daughter was in bed asleep, her husband was at work, and she did not have a gun.

Shelton checked again to see where the suspect was, saying, “I peeked through the blinds, the blinds stayed closed and peeked through and saw him looking at me. I mean we made complete eye contact. He proceeded to come through the back of the house, and I ran back and dialed 911.”

Shelton was one of the lucky ones.

She could have easily become another statistic and sad example of what happens when women refuse to carry a gun in order to defend themselves from bad people.

Even worse, the intruder could have also harmed her daughter.

Thankfully, this incident was enough to snap Shelton into reality.

Shelton made the decision to not only buy a gun, but she is getting her concealed carry permit and training her 15-year-old daughter how to shoot.

Breitbart reports:

Shelton is still uneasy; she says the suspect stole her “sense of security.” She now takes her daughter with her to the firearms training course, saying, “I’ve enjoyed it, I’m glad to know that I have a 15-year-old daughter and she knows the safety and the rules, and I feel pretty confident in her if she ever had to use a weapon for her defense.”

While liberals thrive on calling conservatives “trigger happy” and “violent” and seek to blame all shooting tragedies on guns, Shelton came face-to-face with the reality she was unarmed and vulnerable.

It shouldn’t take an actual robbery or break-in for liberals to understand the importance of owning a gun, but thankfully Shelton got the lesson before it was too late.

Many women like Shelton are choosing not only to own a gun, but are practicing at the range and ready to fire if needed.

Guns shouldn’t be something parents teach their children are “violent and bad.”

Precautions should obviously be taken with small children, and gun safety should be taught, but guns really do save lives.

Do you agree with Shelton’s decision to purchase a gun? Do you think women should train their teens how to shoot?

    I was 66 and home alone when my home invader entered my house. My yellow Lab and my pistol saved me, along with the 17 police officers who showed up. I was a bit disappointed- – – THEY WOULD NOT LET ME SHOOT HIM after they got there!

    • When my uncle came back from the war in Korea. He showed me how to shoot a hand gun. Well he became a cop and spent a lot of time helping other officers do better. Well the other cops told him to go out for the police match for the state. Well he took the number 2 spot for the state. I never shot anyone But I have got deer with my Black Hawk 44 mag The same thing I shot when I was 11.

    Firearms training and safety, LOTS if gun safety, should be required in all publoc schools starting in the first grade. – In fact you should have to qualify before you can graduate.

      I started a rifle team in my daughter’s high school in the Peoples Republik of New York in 1999. .The team the first year was 4 girls. They became doctors, lawyers and my daughter a veterinarian (I brag), hardly Neanderthals. It drove the liberals nuts. The New York Times even did a story on the team..

      • Great Job I salute you. BTW Recently bought a Mossberg 88 at Dicks for $200. Left NYC now in Nassau

          I relocated to Wyoming in 2005, where I do not need the permission of big brother to carry either open or concealed.

          • I hope we can get rid of these libtards that rule this state I would love to see that. Enjoy your new state

          • Sorry, but you will be outvoted by the welfare leaches and brain-dead airheads in NYC.

    A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. Old quote. No surprise here. Necessity is the mother of invention. In this case: Whoa! I really need a gun. When seconds count, at best the police are minutes away. Sometimes many, many minutes away.

    Absolutely. Shooting is probably one of the best ways to instill discipline and confidence. Target shooting and getting good hits on target give one pride in his/her ability. The lessons learned in handling a gun safely are transferable to daily living.

  6. Everyone has the right to self defense. The police take some time to arrive and often are too late to save your life. It is the Satanic power-mongering wannabe dictators who want to disarm the citizens.
    —— 1935 quote from Adolph Hitler: “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.”
