She called 911, and she didn't shoot through any doors or windows. She waited until they kicked in a door. Seems to me to be a textbook example of protecting her family with a firearm.
What if there were 35 people with sniper rifles and explosives trying to get in?

What if the guys had bullet-proof vests on, and then shot her after she shot them?

Running away is always safer then staying and trying to fight an unknown number of assailants armed with who knows what. Can't believe you think otherwise. That's strange to me.
