So stalker had a restraining order put on him, woman moves from previous address, but he finds where she lives, breaks through the locked door and had a chair behind the the door nob. What should she do, call 911 and wait or shoot him? Well, she shot him, then called 911. I wonder what caliber she used since he was hit in the chest.

“Those who believe there was other things to be done have never had someone tell you that you no longer deserve to draw breath and mean it,” she wrote.
She continued: “And for the ‘shouldve fired a warning shot’ folks: There are no warning shots, a gun is a deadly force, you only pull that trigger if you are in fear for your life and all other methods of deterring are gone. When he kicked my door in, there was no longer a deterrent preventing harm. Warning shots are dangerous and could hurt the unintended. This is not a wild west movie. That’s what responsible gun ownership is. Ill update once things have calmed down a bit I promise.”

Who needs to defend themselves in their own home right?

Also, this is some of the most ridiculous piece of advice to ever give:

"Typically, we ask people to comply with the orders of the robber,” Hopkins said.
How many times have been been assaulted or murdered after complying? I guess he doesn't look at stats.

This would also make me feel oh so safe in the area:

Authorities searched the area with K-9s and a helicopter but couldn’t find the culprits.

If you are going to be a good samaritan, you should protect yourself too.

ShotSpotter doesn't seem to be doing its job in preventing people from shooting nearly every single day.
