Another day, another attempted break-in foiled by yet another granny out to prove her manhood with a gun. “’Back up, you son of a b—-,’ she yelled. ‘Back up! Get out of here! Get the hell out of here! Get your butt out! Now!’” Those were Jan Cooper’s warnings to Brandon Perez as the paroled burglar attempted to open her door. Shortly thereafter, she sent a .357 round whistling past his ear while a 911 operator listened in. Oddly enough, the near-death experience was all it took to convince Perez that the risk of entering the Cooper manse wasn’t worth any potential reward he’d get from rummaging through their belongings . . .
“Jan Cooper has been shooting guns since she was a teenager and said she wouldn’t change her response if someone tried to break into her house again.”
Just make sure not to draw any conclusions from this obviously anomalous happy outcome. As everyone knows, a gun kept in the home will probably be used against its owner. Thank goodness Mrs. Cooper was one of the lucky ones, right? [h/t Louis R.]
