How Does an 85-yr-old Woman Stop a Burglar?

With a firearm of course! - 85-Year-Old Pennsylvania Woman Pulls Gun on Burglar, Forces Him to Call 911 - Local News | News Articles | National News | US NewsYour average urban goblin often thinks the elderly are helpless victims. They are often proved wrong.
An 85-year-old woman busted a would-be burglar by pulling a gun on him, then forcing him to call 911 while she kept him in her sights, police said.
I love that she made him call 911. The news report I saw said she then told him to lie on the ground.

Without a firearm, Leda Smith would have been a defenseless old woman. With a firearm, she may have stopped a crime wave, since several houses have been burglarized in the area.

Self-defense is a human right, and armed self-defense is legal and it works.
