This is why the Second Amendment is so important, particularly for women. In fact, the Second Amendment should really be the first banner of the so-called feminists, because it is a true empowerment to be able to defend yourself.  From the Boot.com comes the story of how country star Craig Morgan's foresight in training his daughter how to responsibly use firearms helped perhaps save her life:

"During one show taping I was on a hunt, and I got a phone call that my daughter's house in Arkansas had been broken into. She was in the house and there was a gunman in the house," Craig [Morgan] recalls.

...

"Everything turned out just fine, thank goodness," the father of five reports. "My daughter was smart enough to go in her bedroom and lock herself up, and she had a pistol, so she was waiting if he came through. Thank goodness he didn't, because she would have had to have shot him. And her biggest thing was she would've felt bad, because she knows that she would've had to talk to someone and they would've asked her if she felt bad about it, and she would have had to say NO! [laughs] And they would've thought she was crazy.

"I also have a 14-year-old in the house right now who has a great respect for weapons and understands the impact they have," Craig continues. "And I'm very fortunate I live in the country where my daughter has a right to have a pistol to protect herself. That's the way we looked at it."
