    Next time use your gun and put her away. You have the right to use force inside your own house against intruders who don't deserve to be in your house. Burglars almost always carry weapons, either knives or guns. You have the right to protect you property and your family. Never take chances. I always have a concealed weapone with me. Two rounds on the forehead, two rounds on the chest in two seconds or less. She could've shot you.
