I was 8 months pregnant with my baby girl. I heard my dog going crazy and someone was trying to break through our glass basement door! The dog wasn’t enough to deter the break in, so I drew my gun and called 911. I did not want to shoot and begged 911 to get there quick so I wouldn’t have to, but I would do anything to protect my unborn daughter. 911 came over 29 minutes later and I had my daughter early from the stress but she is safe and healthy and perfect! I really believe this would not be the case if I weren’t able to draw a gun. I am beyond grateful for my daughter and the right to protect her.
