Do you own a gun? If so, good for you…make sure you know how to use it. If not, why not? Millions of Americans own guns and it’s a good thing they do because they end up needing them to protect themselves. It annoys liberals every time they hear it but, Americans defend themselves, their loved ones, and their property millions of times every year with guns. Some of the stories of Americans using their guns for their own protection follow.
While taking groceries to her car, a man approached an 82-year-old woman and said something horrible to her: “This is your day. You are too old to be alive anyway.” According to police, he then grabbed the woman’s cane and beat her. Despite the savage assault, the elderly woman managed to reach into her purse, draw her gun and fire a shot. The man fled and, upon hearing the shot, store employees quickly came to the woman’s aid. The self-proclaimed “stubborn, old broad” is badly bruised but will fully recover. “If I go naturally or to a sickness or something, fine,” she said. “I’m ready to go, but I’m not ready to let some idiot like that take me out.” (KVOA-TV, Tucson, Ariz., 03/15/10)Read more true stories at Happily American - The Armed Citizen Report: May 2010
