These are the best good guy with a gun stories that come our way. The ones involving grandmas who are cocked, locked, and ready to rock (see Gun-Toting Grandma Opens Fire on Home Intruders and Thanks Second Amendment: 65-year-old Granny Shoots Mugger…).
Meet Yvonda “Bonnie” Gatens, of West Virginia. Some thieving jackass tried breaking in to her casa on Christmas Eve. Big mistake.
Gatens lives off Showen Hill Road in Putnam County. She and her late husband built their home 40 years ago.
After she heard the noise at the window, she called 911 and grabbed her gun.
“I told him ‘you’re going to die’ and he fell over to the side,” Gatens explained to WSAZ.
Did you notice how she had one in her dresser, and a second blaster in the closet? Granny ain’t playing.
“If you come in here, it’s going to be you or me, and I’ll see to it that it won’t be me!”
We can only hope to be half as bad ass as this gun-toting grandma when we reach her age. She’ll send you to meet your maker, then bake some nice sugar cookies for the po-po and tell them stories of the good ol’ days. While they wait for the meat-wagon to arrive to carry your sorry carcass off to the morgue.
This is why the Second Amendment is the most terrific of all. Even the kindliest of mee-maws turn into first-rate killing machines when you put a Smith & Wesson in their hands. Suddenly Gam-Gam isn’t so helpless when you’re staring down the business end of her .357.
Chalk this one up as another example of why guns are the bee’s knees and why every decent guy and gal ought to be free to sport one. But, I doubt facts and evidence are going to change the minds of gun-grabbing leftists.
Speaking of that:
