Mom Who Shot Burglar is New Face of Gun Rights

Gun rights activists are embracing a young mother who shot a burglar in her home

A young mother protected her home and children by shooting a burglar five times, leaving him in critical condition.

The Georgia woman took her children and hid in an attic space, but the intruder found them, according to Loganville Patch.

Melinda Herman has now become a new face of gun rights amid the dramatic story of her defending herself and two children with a six-shot revolver.

Vice President Joe Biden will present gun control recommendations on Tuesday as some lawmakers push for a renewed assault weapons ban in the wake of the Newtown school shooting a month ago in Connecticut.

Patch users have posted more than 200 comments regarding assault weapons.

NRA spokesman Wayne LaPierre has called for armed security at all schools while others vehemently oppose that plan.

Two Pa. lawmakers now say teachers should be armed.

Gun rights advocates will celebrate "Gun Appreciation Day" on January 19.

the "father of a 6 yr old boy that was murdered" is emotionally damaged (and rightfully so). He is in no position to give thoughtful input that will affect millions of us for many years to come. We need to be guided by knowledgeable people that are not affected by bad emotions in order to decide how to fix this problem properly and not make it worse because of a hasty, thoughtless reactionary plan. " Enough said"??
