Harden the target should come first.

But there's a necessary precondition to your mom getting a gun for self defense: has she decided she could actually use it against another human being?

If she says 'yes', then you should take her at her word.

Rather than a handgun, she and you might consider a side-by-side coach gun in 20 gauge - one example - http://www.stoegerindustries.com/fir...coach-guns.php

Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum - most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.

Heller was 2008. McDonald was 2010. Things started getting bad with GCA-1968.
It takes time to unwind 40 years of bad law.
