We’ve quoted it before, and we’ll quote it again. “God created men and Sam Colt made them equal.” That’s a statement that’s so self-evident that it shouldn’t need much explanation. But if you’re having trouble grasping it – and we have plenty of anti-gun readers who we’re sure will scoff — let’s look at the example of a 79-year-old woman from Jackson County, Georgia.
The woman was home last week when a 20-year-old man broke into her home. That’s not what anyone would consider a fair fight.
As wbir.com reports . . .
It was just after noon on Feb. 12 when the woman called 911, and shot at the 20-year-old suspect twice – while she was still on the phone with 911. She was able to fend him off until deputies arrived to arrest him.
She stayed on the line with the 911 operator.
For nearly 10 minutes, the woman and her pistol took control of the home invasion while she gave the 911 dispatcher a play-by-play of the 20-year-old man who she said was making a racket ransacking another part of the house.
You can hear the entire 911 call here:
The woman was shooting in the man’s direction not trying to hit him, explaining to her daughter later, she just wanted to keep him away from her.
He finally tried to hide in an upstairs closet, now afraid of her.
“He made the comment to my mother, you know, ‘B****, you’re trying to kill me,’ because, you know, she was shooting at him.”
County law enforcement officers finally arrived and rescued the cowering burglar.
The almost-octogenarian was able to protect herself and her home because of…wait for it…a gun. The same kind of tool that members of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex love to tell us only endangers those who keep them in their homes.
“She didn’t allow herself to become a victim,” the woman’s daughter said, Tuesday. “My mother’s a very strong woman. I know where I get my strength from, now. As a matter of fact, I think she’s a little stronger.”
Somehow we think a certain elderly Georgia woman would disagree with the pasty-faced experts at Vox, the Brady Campaign and Everytown. Her gun was the only reason she was able to even the odds and keep the man who’d broken into her home from doing God-knows-what to her. How else would a little old lady have stood a chance against a much younger, much stronger attacker?
