Grandma's Got a Gun
You just have to love these two ladies. One 56 the other 75, neither is going to put up with nonsense. First from Ohio:
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."
Lynn's neighbor quickly called police who arrested the suspects, ages 15 and 17, in nearby yards.
Next from Arizona:
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.
The robber implied he had a gun, so the woman complied with his order and gave him $1.50, hoping he would leave, Wilson said. Then, thinking her life was in danger, she drew a Smith & Wesson revolver and pointed it at the robber, who ran away.
These women know Officer Friendly can't watch everyone every minute so they need to watch themselves. One can only hope the criminals learned a valuable lesson and will seek gainful employment over a life of crime. Staring down the barrel of a gun can be qute rehabilitating.
