    One of The Best True Stories

    I know some of you have heard about this elderly NC woman on her front porch, widowed a few years, and one night a guy accosts her at knifepoint, takes her inside, says he wants money, then he will rape her. She is in her nightgown. She remembers her late husband's .38 in the holster hanging in the upstairs closet between some clothes, and she tells the intruder that she has more money upstairs in that closet, and of course the greedy nitwit insists that they get right up there. She fumbles around in the closet for a couple of seconds, finds what she is looking for, turns around and fires five times, killing her assailant. A beautiful beautiful story if I ever heard one. I thought of the word "justice" when I first read it.

    There's a reason that avarice is one of the "deadly" sins!

    She was the last person he ever accosted.

    Hadn't heard it ... hope it isn't one of the apocryphal stories we sometimes tell ... but whether true or fable it's certainly a heart-warming story.

    There's something about 5 well-placed shots that clearly spells out...rehabilitation

    It was printed in the back of one of the magazines like American Rifleman, where the column is called The Armed Citizen, and that is where I got the story from, paraphrasing it because I no longer have the printed article. Either American Rifleman or another magazine just like it. Every month they publish true stories from around the country and they are pretty interesting.

    If you go to Official National Rifle Association of America Home Page up near the top right you will see something called publications. Click on that word and look for
    The armed citizen
    in the pulldown menu. Here you will find all true stories of self defense shootings from around the states.
    One more step and it's on!

    Granny get yer gun! The very best ending to that story.
    I personally would chip in a few bucks to help buy her a new carpet for that room.

    The story turned out well, but it's another illustration of the need to always have a weapon on you.

    Needless to say, NC officers arriving told her she did good......she probably already knew that :) And like many of these scenarios, she was just someone on her front porch in the very early evening just enjoying herself when this LS ( little savage) happens to pick her as his next victim.
    That is why the story is so beautiful, because he specifically told her what he was going to do sexually with her after the robbery was over, and she was in her nightgown etc so she was doubly terrified, but his punishment was just the swiftest I ever saw.
