Go Granny!

  • An 85-year-old great-grandmother from Lake Lynn, Fayette County kept an alleged burglar at bay using a .22-caliber pistol. According to police, a 17-year-old suspect was attempting to burglarize Leda Smith overnight. That's when Smith grabbed her gun and told the teen that she would shoot him if he moved, police said.
They showed Grandma's gun on TV. It was some ancient top-break .22-caliber revolver, 9 shots if we aren't mistaken. Still, enough to do some damage if Grandma was provoked. Channel 9's talking heads went on and on about how happy they were that this elderly woman was able to protect herself.

What about all the tens of thousands of elderly folks around here that can't protect themselves without running afoul of Daley's anti-gun agenda? These media hypocrites have blinders on.

An H & R 9 shot target .22, model 999, I think.

Good training pistol for the pre-teen members of the family.

That appeared to be a Harrington and Richardson "Sportsman". It is an old 9 shot .22, but who wants to be shot with that? They may be old, but they shoot great.

The young and the old are the most vulnerable members of society. I for one am all in favor of armed seniors.

It levels the playing field quite abit doesn't it? The savages will think twice before tossing gasoline on a senior citizen maintaining his property.

I bet their crime rate is nowhere near ours.

Guns in the hands of citizens = less crime?

Bad guys with guns aka gun ban = more crime?

I only took college algebra, but 2 + 2 still equals 4 right?

I saw that on a different station and the media was also saying that it was a good thing that she had a gun. What about the citizens of chicago that also need a gun.

Also the best part was that she made the POS make the call himself to the police to report the crime.

She should be given a special award for that.

Use google to check statistics on states with concealed carry vs. states without. Consistently, states that allow citizens to arm & protect themselves have less crime than states that do not. Travel to a state with concealed carry and see who's packin'. Night shift nurses, middle-aged taxpaying guys, nearly 100 percent law-abiding citizens. The IR number havin' s**t-heads can't, won't or don't get concealed carry permits.

Keep up the good work SCC!

oh come on SCC now we want EVERY 85 year old to be armed? PLEASE tell me you agree that THAT is a bad idea! Didnt we all see the COPS episode where the 85 year old grandma THOUGHT she heard a burglar, grabbed her .25 caliber and shot out the back door... and when the POs arrived to investigate a shots fired call she shot twice through the door at them?? now THAT seems more likely what would happen if we started arming the elderly... Im no gun grabber, I really dont care about the matter, but when one side tries to use a situation like this to prove a point it really does show some ass... sorry, but this has nothing to do with Daleys gun ban

There should be a physical fitness test to own a firearm. These old or out of shape persons with weapons are just a supply line for criminals guns.

Fuck Dley's law, it is only a quasi charge anyway. Buythe gun, teach granny or whoever to protect themselves and aim straight.

A previous blog is right, granny doesn't need a gun. If a home invader breaks in just fall on the floor and play injured or dead.
When shithead turns his head put a butcher knife in their gut and twist.

If granny needs any more helpful info let me know, I've got plenty of it.

Oh right, just lay on the floor so the little shithead can nudge you with his foot and put a bullet in your head just to make sure there's no witness.

You're a fucking mope.

I had a girlfriend who worked as a waitress 8pm-4am. One early morning she was at a light and a carload of shitheads pulled up and started badmouthing her. She reached down into her lap and pulled up her .22.
They gone.

Everyone should be able to have a concealed weapon.

Were I her, I would have capped the mutt. All nine, real fast before he takes it away and any are left. 85 year old woman, 16 yr old POS breaks into her house, she is in fear of her life. He would have been a freebie. But it was her call as it should be. The problem: he comes back when he's on I bond and home electronic monitoring to take care of the witness against him. Or he learns from his mistake on the next job when he's out of jail in a year or two. Thats why I would have punched his ticket when I had the chance. By the way, were I a family member, she would go to the range with me during one of my four visits a year.

Thirty years ago when my mother worked the overnight shift at a restaurant as a cook when she got off the bus a shithead followed her then when she got close to an alley she suddenly heard his footsteps turn into a trot.Unknown to the shithead my mother carried a ivory handled .25 cal inside her bra and could take it out in the blink of an eye.My mother was 5.04,100 lbs soaking wet and the bad guy was at least 6 ft. from the description she later gave my father and five brother's and in the blink of an eye she pulled it out pointed at him and said "IF YOU TAKE ANOTHER STEP I WILL BLOW YOU'RE MUTHERFUCKIN HEAD OFF" she said he took off like a scared jack rabbit. My mother was old school, as a matter of survival she would have shot his ass dead had he took that one step,my father taught her how to aim and fire and not to be scared of a gun but to respect it treat it with care and take care of it and it will take care of you.That is the difference between a sheep and wolf.
