And no, I don't mean leaving the three kids, come on.

Unless in the unlikely event they wanted to kidnap the woman and three kids, in that situation, I would just yell "Take whatever you want, we are leaving"

Still seems safer.
I am not nor will ever be a gun owner. Although there are some positive uses of guns I happen think that they cause more trouble than they help. I have read about uses of guns in this thread that I would not agree are "positive."

However. In this case, if I were that woman, I would have blasted a hole in that motherfucker as soon as he broke through my door. Yes, there were other doors and they were trying to get in those too. She wasn't sure how many people were out there. If I tell someone I have a gun and they break in anyway, I'm not wasting time to determine their intentions or figure out what door is not covered so I can get three kids out.
