    GOOD, VERY GOOD: 70 yr old woman defends herself

    Finally a "good" story coming out of Detroit. Yeah, it's bad that an attempted robbery took place in broad daylight, but it's good she was able to properly defend herself. Also, she's smart enough to keep her mouth shut about discharging her firearm. Listen to the video.

    And someone is surprised that these little thugs are working the Detroit area?

    Too bad the story title doesn't read..."Young Thugs' Careers Permanently Ended in Home Break-in".

    While I applaud her for standing up for herself, I question her thinking that this incident will change the thugs in any way. Sooner or later they will kill someone or someone will kill them.

    Good on her. Even better that she knows when to stop talking.

    That said, 70 might seem old to a teenager, or someone in their thirties, but from someone who will be 70 in a 8 months, don't underestimate what we are capable of. Might surprise some. 70 sounds old, and for some it is, for some 50 is old, but for others, 70 is a fine age at which to be leading an active life. Shooting IDPA, riding and caring for my horses, hunting 2 or 3 days a week year around, packing everywhere it's legal every day - life is good at 70, not willing to give it up with out a fight.

    The victim would not reveal to the reporter whether she fired any shots (probably) because she didn't fire any shots. She just doesn't want to let on to other young, opportunistic POS's that she's unwilling to pull the trigger. I don't blame her for not shooting if, in fact, she didn't, however, if she were my mother, I'd be taking her to the range on a regular basis and get her into a (firearm) self-defense course, pronto.
