    GASTONIA, N.C. -- Police released the 911 call after a Gaston County woman shot and killed an intruder during a home invasion early Saturday morning.Kenneth James Cox, 28, broke into a woman’s home in the 4700 block of Chapel Grove Road in Gastonia shortly after 1 a.m., according to the Gaston County Police Department.
    Police say Cox and a woman at the home confronted each other after the break-in, and the woman shot Cox.
    "I'm in my room with the gun pointed at the door," the woman told a 911 operator.
    "I just shot him. He tried coming into my bedroom," she said, just moments later.
    The woman was not injured, and Cox was pronounced dead on the scene.
    "At this time it does not appear that Cox and the female knew each other,” a police report states.
    No charges against the woman have been filed, and the case is still under investigation. Read below for the entire 911 call.

    I know the numbers are increasing but I wish more women would arm themselves and be proficient with firearms.

    Yep it's definitely increasing. Years ago females practicing self-defense with a handgun at the range were few and far between.
    Now it's everyday, and sometimes they outnumber the guys.

    Default take the ladies to the range....

    I do my part, I invite any and nearly all my female coworkers to go shooting at the range with me and have had a handful of takers who enjoyed themselves ..some brought their family members or boyfriends ...yep they do tease me about it being a really weird "pick up" line but we seem to always have a good time and several have become gun nuts as a result of their exposure to the range. it is great fun to watch the ladies suddenly realize the power to defend they have in their hands as they become confident with gun handling.
