    80 year old Cleveland woman defends herself

    http://www.ohioccw.org/content/view/3869/83/

    It happened again. It might even be the third self-defense shooting in less than seven days in the City of Cleveland.

    Channel 19 in Cleveland is reporting that a 80-year old woman awoke to breaking glass overnight and moments later heard someone running up her stairs. The woman lives alone and promptly drew a concealed .38 revolver from beneath her pillow and found herself trading shots with a burglar.

    The gun was thirty years old.

    Thankfully the woman wasn't hit and the suspect fled the scene with a scream indicating he may have been hit. Cleveland Police investigated, and unlike the Wells shooting, the woman's gun was handed back to her on the spot.
    Glad to see that the police decided not to disarm this lady. Firearms are the "great equalizer" for self defense, allowing people who could not defend themselves with just their mitts to do so effectively, good for her. Maybe she and the former Miss America from Kentucky should get together and go to the range.

    So now any firearm that is stored away someplace is "concealed"?

    Good grief, Josef Goebbels would be proud.
