Granny Gets Her Gun—And Stops Burglary

The best part is, she made the burglar call the cops.

From an Associated Press story on AOL News:
An 85-year-old woman boldly went for her gun and busted a would-be burglar inside her home, then forced him to call police while she kept him in her sights, police said. "I just walked right on past him to the bedroom and got my gun," Leda Smith said. . . .

"It was exciting," Smith said. "I just hope I broke up the (burglary) ring because they have been hitting a lot of places around here."

Naturally youse ain't gonna see this story on the front of any big newspaper.
The little bastard should consider himself lucky that he didn't get blown away.


I love it. Believe it or not this was covered by my local news on tv. or at least I think it was the same one. how many granny's could be shooting burglars in one week? The pistol she used looked to be some sort of crazy 22LR revolver. it had like 15 rounds in it. lol. I'd have loved to have seen his face.


I would love to hear that 911 recording!
