Last week Walt posted about a wheelchair bound grandmother in New York City who shot a mugger trying to steal from her. Here’s a good piece in the New York Post with more details. For one thing, she didn’t have a carry permit, at least as most of the country knows it:
Even worse, if Mayor Bloomberg would have enforced New York City’s gun-control laws, it’s Johnson who would be in jail. Her license only allows her to carry a handgun that is unloaded and in a locked container to and from a firearms range. With an attacker choking her, there is no way she could have unlocked and loaded her gun.
It’s also here on the author’s website. He has a lot of good stuff up there.
