A woman from Bakersfield, Calif. practiced her Second Amendment rights last week and defended her family and property shooting a home invader who apparently was threatening her with a hammer.

According to 23 ABC, Andrew Oldham, was allegedly stalking the woman and mother and entered her property Wednesday morning. Despite being asked to leave and told the cops had already been called, Oldham refused to leave her house. The woman, who family members confirmed knew the intruder, then threatened to shoot the suspect.

Still, the man did not leave. Finally, the victim pulled the trigger and subsequently shot the man. At around 8:15 am, the police arrived and found him with "moderate injuries" and armed with a hammer. He was transported to a local hospital. Once he is medically cleared, he will be "charged with robbery, burglary, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon, according to KCSO officials." 

The unidentified woman told the local news station "she hopes Oldham doesn't get out of jail 'for a long time' and said she was still really shocked about what happened and was surprised how well she handled the situation."

It is unclear what the man's ultimate intent was and few specifics were given regarding the two parties' relationship. Police did not say what sort of firearm the victim used to defend herself. 

The most recent polling from the Pew Research Center indicates that 48 percent of gun owners say they have a firearm for protection, but it much less likely these lawful gun owners will ever have to use the gun for a situation like the one described above.
