Bada** doesn’t begin to define this woman.  In an attempt to protect her infant son during a break in, an Oklahoma woman requested permission from a police dispatcher to shoot the intruders – and then in fact, pulled the trigger.

Via the Daily Caller:

Eighteen-year-old Sarah McKinley called police as two men were trying to break into her home on New Year’s Eve. One was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife, Good Morning America reported. McKinley, whose husband died of cancer on Christmas day, was at home alone with her baby.

As the men were trying to gain entry to her house, McKinley reportedly “quickly got her 12 gauge, went into her bedroom and got a pistol, put the bottle in the baby’s mouth and called 911.”

That’s when the mama grizzly’s claws came out:

 She then explained the situation to the dispatcher.

“I’ve got two guns in my hand — is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?” she asked, explaining, “I’m here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?”

“I can’t tell you that you can do that,” said the dispatcher in response to whether McKinley could shoot the intruders, “but you do what you have to do to protect your baby.” 

One of the intruders managed to get into the woman’s home, and went after her with a knife.  That particular intruder experienced an unfortunate outcome.  He was shot and killed.
