Pickin' On A Poor, Defenseless Old Lady...

Heh. Commenter BenC sent this one in. It's not a DGC addition, but it's still pretty darn good...

89-year-old woman scares away burglars with pistol
When burglars invaded the home of Ruby Hodge, 89, they got a lot more than they bargained for.
Hodge was in her bedroom just after 8 a.m. Monday morning, when she heard a knock at her back door.
Well, aside from the poor grammar in the title, it's a relatively decent story regarding a defensive gun use. Of note, mind you, is that she didn't even fire the weapon - the mere sight of it was enough to send the two goblins running. This is an elderly woman against two younger males - what chance would she have had without the firearm?

These are exactly the stories the gungrabbers doesn't want you to know about. They would rather pretend that these stories - and the countless thousands like them - simply don't exist. Admitting that people can and do use firearms to protect themselves from predators means that there is a legitimate use for guns, and the antis (and media, but I repeat myself) certainly can't have that.

My favorite part of the article was where the 89 year old woman admits to sleeping with the pistol - now, I have no idea if that's true or not; it might just be a "be sure to publish this so they don't come back" kind of thing. But it's exactly the kind of stereotype that the media likes to push of gunowners - except she's not a white male aged 25 - 45...

Good job with the goblin repellent!

That is all.

"It'll just get taken away and used against you".

They keep saying that...
