In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 5, a Louisiana mom woke up to find an armed intruder standing in her bedroom doorway, but she was not about to become a victim, according to a report by FOX 8.
Upon waking and seeing the man in her bedroom, the woman screamed with fright. Apparently the intruder didn’t anticipate her waking up before he executed whatever plan he had in his deranged, drunken mind, as the screams startled him, causing him to run out of the bedroom, but remain in the home.
The mother grabbed her shotgun from the bedroom closet, quickly checked on her children, and then at gunpoint forced the man to the front door of her home. She fired three shots in the direction of the man who had just violated her personal space, but did not hit him.
After finally fleeing the home, officers later found the intruder who was identified as Joseph Hall Rogers of Covington. He was intoxicated, resisted arrest and was tased before he was arrested.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 22.
