GUNS DO GOOD
The 56-year-old woman was walking near East Fort Lowell Road and North Country Club Road when a man dressed in black approached her and demanded money, said Officer Dallas Wilson, a Tucson Police Department spokesman ...
Thinking her life was in danger, she drew a Smith & Wesson revolver and pointed it at the robber, who ran away.
The woman — whose name was not released by police — had a concealed-weapon permit, Wilson said.
“She was in fear for her life and she defended herself appropriately,” he said.
Yes. Yes, she did. And in Ohio:
[Great-grandmother] Eleanor Lynn, 75, said she keeps her .380 handgun loaded and nearby at all times.
“I already had the gun out,” she said. “Somebody was breaking into my house so I took the gun out and went to the door. They flew.”
That’s why she was ready when the suspects entered her west Akron home Monday morning.
She’d been robbed before and wasn’t about to let it happen again.
“All I got to do is hold this trigger and it goes six times without stopping,” Lynn explained. “I just bought this one and this one has never been used. I’d like to have a chance to use it.”
Think anyone will try robbing her again?
