(NaturalNews) Did you hear or read about the hero mother who protected her children from a burglar at their home near Atlanta?

Oh, wait. You probably didn't, considering she used a firearm to protect them and the corporate media elite, as regular readers of NaturalNews are aware, have a bit of an anti-gun bias.

Well, we don't mind using our First Amendment right to stand up for our Second Amendment right, so here are the details.

A 37-year-old Loganville, Ga., mother of two who works out of her residence was at home with her children recently when someone knocked on the front door. Assuming that the person was merely a solicitor, the woman - who was not identified in this Atlanta Journal-Constitution report - hollered at her 9-year-old twins who were playing downstairs to not answer the door.

'The guy's face down, crying'

When the person began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, the woman called her husband who was at his place of work what was going on.

"Get the kids and hide," he told his wife, which she did.

As her husband dialed 911, his wife gathered up their children and "hid with them in a crawlspace adjoining her office," the paper said. By then, the visitor at the front door had become an intruder, having forced his way into the three-story home with a crowbar.

The intruder began rummaging through the house, police said, and eventually made his way upstairs to the attic office where the mother worked.

"He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver," said Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman, who relayed the story to the paper.

The woman fired six bullets at the intruder, Paul Ali Slater, five of which hit him in the face and neck area, though he remained conscious.

"The guy's face down, crying," said Chapman, adding that the woman told Slater to remain lying down or she'd shoot again.

Slater, wounded and bleeding, obeyed, oblivious to the fact that she had emptied her six-shot revolver. As he laid there, the woman collected her two children and ran to a neighbor's house.

Slater eventually made it out of the house to his car, driving away before sheriff's deputies arrived. But he did not get far.

"When you got five bullets in you, it makes you kind of disoriented," the sheriff told the paper.

Deputies found Slater bleeding profusely a short distance away, in a neighbor's driveway.

"I'm dying," he told them. "Help me."

Emergency medical personnel arrived and transported Slater to an area hospital; doctors later said he is expected to survive.

Slater, a native of Long Island who now lives in Gwinnett County, Ga., was released from jail there in late August after serving six months for simple battery, as well as three counts of probation violation. He has six other arrests in Gwinnett County dating back to 2008, jail records indicate.

'Instincts kicked in' - but she wasn't defenseless, either

But when he broke into that home in Loganville, he finally got his due.

"My wife's a hero," said the woman's husband, Donnie Herman, in an interview with a local news affiliate. "She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do."

Chapman said he was impressed with the woman's resolve in the face of danger, saying she handled her first shooting better than he had.

"That mother's instinct kicked in," Chapman said. "You go after a mother's kids and she'll find herself capable of doing things she never thought she was capable of."

Only, if President Obama and his supporters get their way, mothers - and fathers - will be virtually defenseless against street scum like Slater by denying them their constitutional right to self-defense.

If the corporate media really want a story, that's the angle they should pursue.
