Well, for one thing, a .38 doesn't have a hell of a lot of stopping power. Even a .38 super doesn't deliver much knockdown punch because of relatively low muzzle velocity. And it was obviously a wheel gun (6 rounds, and without a reloader, a real PIA to refill). So yeah, why didn't she have an AR with a drum mag? crazy

Of course, if she had time to hustle the kids into a crawl space, why didn't she have time to hustle them out the back door? And hubby is proud of her? Proud that she put those kids in harm's way even though she was trying to protect them?

I'm glad she and her kids escaped unharmed. And I'm glad that the perp had a bad day after all. But the absurdity the accolades is just plain nuts!
