An Oregon mother shot and killed an intruder she found inside one of her children’s bedrooms early Sunday, according to police.
The 33-year-old woman had just returned to her Southeast Portland home with her two children, ages 5 and 10, when she encountered the man, KOIN 5 reported.
According to local news reports, the woman used her own handgun to shoot the 59-year-old man. The names of the woman and the intruder have not been publicly released.
This touches on several issues like the 2nd amendment, the right to protect oneself, and those who want to jail those who use deadly force.
