Gun control advocates like to claim that defensive uses of firearms happen very rarely, but it's not hard to find countless examples happening all the time.
As was the case in Alabama recently:
The Walker County Sheriff's Office announced an arrest Friday afternoon in connection with a fatal home invasion in Carbon Hill on Thursday.
WCSO said Paula Painter, of Carbon Hill, is charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of first-degree robbery. The sheriff's office said Painter's charges stem from her involvement in assisting two men with planning and attempting to carry out a home invasion and robbery.
Earlier Friday, WCSO said the two men, who were wearing ski masks during the crime, were shot and killed during an exchange of gunfire with the homeowner. ...
The sheriff's office said the homeowner is still recovering at UAB Hospital in Birmingham after he was shot during the gunfire exchange with the intruders.
Is this the most optimal ending that could have come about? No, not at all. But without an armed homeowner, the situation could have been worse.
Thank goodness we have the Second Amendment.
