Mom chases kidnapper with shotgun...saves daughter.

Not sure a shotgun is the weapon of choice when someone snatches your kid, but nevertheless, props to the mom! Should have shot him anyway.

Depends on distance and what shell load is chambered (slug, shot, etc).
If my kid is allowed to be taken from the scene, the chance of ever seeing her again goes dramatically down

Not that I would even remotely care about "laws" in that situation, deadly force is allowed to prevent a kidnapping. I'd take the shot either at the perp or tires

She and other witnesses told police that Myers only took out a gun after the bicyclist flew at him in a rage and punched him repeatedly.

I had a mental conflict about this. There's no doubting a shotgun is the ultimate home defense weapon, and I eagerly await the day I grab a Saiga-12, but if you've got kids it seems there's too much scatter in the shots, and a slug would defeat the purpose.

If you sneak a chicken wing from JonJon's BBQ a few minutes before everyone else is served, you get popped in the knee with a .22

Take what he says with a grain of salt

Have you ever shot a shotgun? The spread at self defense distances (5-7 yards) is so close, shots can act very much like a slug.

It's doesn't "spray" like the movies

If anyone even attempts to kidnap my kids, I will kill them where they stand.

But hey.... it's the internet

Only skeet shooting with birdshot, didn't give me much of a sense for the spread of the BB's, I just assumed my moving aim isn't good enough and it must've been the spread on the shot.

Shot type, length of barrel, choke, etc all can influence.

You mean the baddies don't explode backwards into a car windshield after they get shot?
