If this is not a case for the 2nd amendment, and carry laws, then I don’t know what is. A woman had to make a bathroom stop while at a local Denny’s. Upon returning she witnessed SIX armed men harassing her husband. Wrong answer.
This woman was armed.
Click2Houston.com interviewed her brother-in-law:
His brother’s wife was in the restroom at the time, but when she exited the restroom she saw the group of suspected robbers. Police said that’s when she pulled out her gun and shot at them.
“She said she came out of the restroom and saw my brother on the floor. That’s when she started doing what she gotta do. She got a license and she’ll do anything to protect her kids and my brother,” he said.
Police said there was a shootout, but it is not known how many shots were fired at the time. However, police said the gunshots did hit cars in the parking lot.
No bystanders or customers were injured.
The group of suspects fled the scene.
The married couple said they are still shook up, but their family said they’re glad they made it out alive.
“Self-defense saved my brother’s life,” he said.
Something tells me that the armed thugs might still be a little shaken as well. The brother-in-law accurately states that she, at least potentially, saved her husband’s life. But how many other lives might she have saved?
Were the assailants going to stop with her husband or were they going to bother other patrons as well?
What about the thugs? We don’t know anything about them but if they are like most thugs they were young and stupid. There is something about being shot at that makes one consider a career change in a hurry. Even if they do not get caught, and only 1 or 2 re-evaluate their future, this woman could have effected, and potentially saved, more lives then she will ever know.
Thank God she was carrying.
