This leaves so many questions, especially if this was you - what would you have done? She was protecting her baby and obviously isn't hesitant about pulling a trigger.

We're not trying to spark debate about gun control, but it's bound to happen, so I'll give you my 2 cents worth...

I respect guns, but they also scare the crap out of me. I'd opt for giving an intruder a total beat-down before grabbing a gun, as I'd be afraid it could get turned on me. In her case, the intruder had a knife and it was just her and her young baby. It was legal to shoot, so she did. Even if I was pointing a gun at him, I'd have a hard time pulling the trigger. It's a life I'd be taking, no matter what kind of an animal he is.

Break-in's and robbery's happen around St. Cloud more than we'd like, so what do you do to protect yourself in the case of this similar thing happening to you? The poll below is intended to find out if you could have done this if it was your home.
