“SHUT MY D$&N DOOR BEFORE I BLOW YOUR …… BRAINS OUT!” That’s what a Mobile, Alabama woman reportedly told a random stranger who had opened her passenger side door while she was in a gas station Tuesday.
Surprised when he opened the door, she reached for her gun and told him to keep out of her vehicle. As wkrg.com further reports,
She said the man was very persistent, even saw her reaching for her gun and didn’t stop until she yelled at him, “(It was a ) very scary moment and I can only thank the good Lord above for watching over me and not allowing anything bad happen.”
What’s the take-away here?
“Get in your vehicle, immediately lock doors. That’s the lesson I quickly learned after this man, whom I never saw coming, opened my door, seconds after I had got in, and aggressively tried to get in my truck,” she said.
The video doesn’t seem to show much aggression or even an attempt to get into the vehicle. Then again, that may have been because the woman immediately reached for her gun. The intruder didn’t exactly run off in terror after deciding that closing the door was the better part of valor. He slowly ambled away.
Still, the woman’s forceful command and the threat of a ballistic response was enough to convince him to shuffle off. We can’t know what would have happened had she been unarmed (and glad she didn’t have to find out).
All’s well that ends well. Another successful defensive gun use — one of more than 1.1 million each year — that didn’t require a round to be fired.
