I know the first thing you’re probably wondering is whether any of them were carried from the crime scene in a body bag. I’m sorry to have to inform you that all three carjackers survived and are on the loose. However, I’m hoping that they were sufficiently scared by the woman’s actions that they’ll turn themselves in or at least decide to give up their life of crime. Fat chance that’ll happen though.
This took place in Detroit, the city with a fairly new sheriff who’s had some very politically incorrect things to say about guns. As a sheriff, he’s in the minority. He actually encourages citizens to own guns and to take action when their lives are threatened. You can’t depend on the police to be everywhere at once to protect people whenever they find themselves in harm’s way. In dangerous cities like Detroit, people need to arm themselves so that they have a much better chance of being able to defend themselves against criminals. Breitbart reported:
On June 2, a Detroit woman emptied her pistol on would-be carjackers after she saw them coming at her with a gun. Afterward she said it’s time “to take back this city from the thugs.”
According to Click On Detroit, the woman–who wishes to remain unidentified–“took a wrong turn…on her way to the hairdresser’s” and was u-turning near Alma and Garnet avenues, when three men allegedly approached her, opened her car door, and shot at her.
The woman was ready. She reached for her gun when saw them raising theirs and then emptied the entire magazine–13 rounds of .357 Sig–on the suspects.
The suspects fled under fire, and it is not known if any of them were hit.
After the incident was over, the woman said, “All the residents of the city need to come together and take back this city from the thugs and the criminals that have taken over this city, and if you live in fear you’ll never bring this city back.”
She commented on how people are scared to go buy gas, then added, “You should be able to go anytime to get gas. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Why can’t we act like it?”
The unidentified woman has a concealed carry permit.
The important thing here is that this woman is still alive, and that she was able to take on three armed carjackers all because she had a gun. She also serves as an example for others to emulate. She’s right. You shouldn’t have to be scared just to get gas. If Detroit residents want the crime to stop, they need to all arm themselves and fight back.
