Her dogs did not stop the intruder. Her home alarm system did not stop the intruder. Not even her “No Trespassing signs” stopped the man who broke into her house. But the moment Lisa Atkin pulled out her handgun the intruder stopped in his tracks.
Then she had to wait 23 minutes for police to arrive at her rural home on that Wednesday morning. So much for the “just call 911 and you will be fine” approach that the anti-gunners want us to take. When seconds count… well, you know the rest.

According to KEZI,
Around 9:00 a.m. her three labs started making a commotion. ”My thought was they were fooling around being the puppy Labradors that they are. But as it got louder obviously that wasn’t the case,” said Atkin.
So she got up to figure out what was going on. “As the noise came more in the house I decided I needed to get my handgun from my nightstand and proceed cautiously through the house,” said Atkin.
That’s when she found Joseph Baker inside her home. “So that’s when I took the gun from its holster and commanded the person to stay still and get down on the floor and asked him what he was doing in my home,” said Atkin.
While the no trespassing signs, security system, and dogs didn’t stop Baker from breaking through two doors to get into the house, Atkin’s extensive firearm training stopped the burglary. “We’ve been through the Oregon Firearms Academy courses so we were trained to deal with these kinds of situations,” said Atkin.
While she never thought she would use this training at home, she’s hopeful other women can learn from her experience. “Twenty three minutes is a long time and while most people in town wouldn’t have to wait that long for a response, it was an incredibly quick response for where we live. Without that training the outcomes could’ve been a little different so I’m blessed to be here today,” said Atkin.
