An armed mom in California refused to be a victim of her alleged stalker when she shot the man after he entered her home.
“A woman who said she shot a man when he came into her home in East Bakersfield Wednesday morning, told 23ABC she has called the police on him before, but this time shooting him was her only option to protect her and her family,” according to a Wednesday report.
A family member confirmed that the woman knew the home invader, named as 33-year-old Andrew Oldham. Oldham entered her home armed with a hammer before the woman, who was not identified in the report, shot him to protect herself and her children, who were present at the time of the incident.
“The woman told 23ABC 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,” the report said.
According to a neighbor, the woman was calm throughout the entire incident.
Oldam was taken to a local hospital with “minor to moderate” injuries. He will be charged with a litany of crimes upon his release, including robbery, burglary, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.

2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020
Gun grabbers take another L.
2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms.
In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020.
These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses.
Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.
The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
