The national news media has no use for armed citizen stories, since it cuts against their narrative that guns are bad and no one should own them, but thankfully local news is still pretty good about paying attention when a firearm is used in self-defense.
In California, radio station KHTS covered the story of an elderly woman in Santa Clarita County who ended up holding a would-be burglar at bay thanks to her firearm. The woman was home alone when a stranger came calling, and though she told the man to leave, he tried to get into the home instead.
The woman called 9-1-1, but the man gained entry into the home while she was talking to dispatchers. She managed to shut herself in an interior room, but the stranger followed, and eventually forced his way inside.
