Dunno. Impossible to say.

Was the burglar armed?

What would have happened if she'd just answered the door?

Note that she used a .38 revolver. They're great self-defense weapons. Or at least I thought so until I read this story. She hit the guy five times in the face and neck and didn't kill him!? Shotgun is better. Just answering the door with a shotgun in hand would likely have done the trick.
