As reported, a woman in Aiken, South Carolina used her gun to stop an armed robber who was holding her boyfriend at gunpoint.
Police say that a woman and her boyfriend met two men at a gas station, intending to complete a used car sale that had been arranged on craigslist. When one of the men pointed a gun at the woman’s boyfriend and demanded money, the woman used her own gun to shoot the robber in self defense, according to news reports. No injuries to the couple were reported, and the coroner states that a robber died from his injuries.
Sexist individuals like to suggest that women are unable to use guns for self defense. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that when women are armed, they are in the best position possible to defend themselves and/or their loved ones. A few examples: This armed woman used her gun to stop violent ex who broke into her home and cornered her in her bedroom. This ill but armed woman was able to fend off 3 home invaders, including one who came back to attack her again. This armed woman was able to defend herself against a rapist who came back to rape her for a second time in a week. This 85 year old armed woman held a young burglar at gunpoint and made the burglar call the police on himself. This armed woman stopped an attacker who tried to ambush her. This armed pregnant woman used a shotgun to scare away two home invaders. This armed female school teacher used a gun to save herself from a convicted felon who broke into her home. As a final real-life example, this armed woman saved herself and her family from a pair of armed, kidnapping, home invaders. Armed self defense works – regardless of the crime victim’s gender.
