    I am all for having God in your life, but sometimes you need a little extra backup.

    Wow, I have mixed feelings on this one. I praise her for her faith and am inspired by her attitude, but I'm thinkin she just came across a guy that was down on his luck and needed a few dollars and was willing to resort to crime to get it. i.e., not a career criminal.

    Humm, one minute he's gonna shoot her and ten minutes later he's Kissing her on the cheek... Makes me think, maybe God was in the car with her.

    While I commend her on her faith, I'd still rather have my .40 cal in those circumstances.

    Put your trust in God and keep your powder dry. Your garden variety sociopath/psycopath would have brushed the goodness away and just killed her. As was noted above, probably some guy out on his luck driven to a desperate act, but still able to respond to the message.

    I agree with the above posters, a hardened criminal wouldn't have been so easily stopped. I'm glad for the lady and the guy both that it worked out the way it did. She's well and maybe he'll turn his life around before it's too late for him or someone else.

    There a spark of humanity in most of us. For those who lack it, I carry another spark.

    I'm glad chance worked in her favor. It could have been extremely ugly.

    Well, we know for sure that the anti's won't use this story against us...to much mention of God in it.

    Good for her, I am 100% sure my grandma would do the same thing...perhaps I should start a thread on that one...Yup, gonna go start that thread.

    Neat video. As said, beginning to talk about God might make some nutcases even more provoked.
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    That is a neat lady
    She used the best weapon available to her at the time...her brain.

    I tend to go by - God gave us brains, using our brains we created tools for our protection, firearms, and learned how to use them...hopefully when we pull out our tools, firearms, to use protecting ourselves the BG will use their brains and surrender.
    Otherwise, their brains may become decoration...they weren't using them anyway.
    Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria

    I imagine that the would-be robber has nobody in his life that cares for him at all, and this kind lady gave him a touch of humanity that no amount of stolen money could buy. That's how I see it, being an athiest.
