In the jurisdiction of the famous Spartanburg County Sheriff, Chuck Wright.

LANDRUM, S.C. -
A woman who had just finished doing overnight work in a Landrum business on Saturday was assaulted by two men, but ended up turning the tables on them when she pulled out a gun and shot at them.....

She didn't survive because she had a gun, she survived because she had a mindset...

Glad things worked out, but that is one wacky lady.

No doubt she can miss with a bigger gun just as effectively.

She said, “Every woman needs to get a concealed weapons permit and carry a gun, because it hadn't been for that, I wouldn't be here."
Yet under SC law, at the time and place of the attack, she didn't need to have a carry permit to carry a gun.

And yet mindset almost got her killed as well, being in condition white, not even remembering she was carrying a gun, etc.

Quote:
She ran to the police department that is less than a block away from her business and reported what had happened.
Driving would have been more prudent.

Less than a block, DNS? It might have taken her longer to get to her car, start it, etc.

1) Was Spartanburg settled by the Irish or something?

North Shamrock Street? Irish Hill Lane ?

2) Instead of outlawing guns, why don't they outlaw hoodies?

Good for her! To quote the late Col. Cooper: "The solution to armed robbery is a dead robber." This maxim clearly also applies to would-be rapists as well.

You can say that again!

"...he shoved me up against the door and I felt the gun in my back pocket and I was like, ‘Dang, I've got that gun.’ I forgot it," she said.

Of course, shock and adrenalin can do strange things to one's judgment, but forgetting that one is carrying is a pretty serious mistake, and running past and away from one's running car that contains one's belongings is surely not the wisest strategy.

And saying that one will get a bigger gun if it happens again does sound pretty darn silly.

Video is gone, but that reminds me of a situation of an old WW2 vet that was attacked in a home invasion, the two brother's were stabbing him in the head, yes,.. the head.

He pulled out his little (Can you get any smaller?) NAA mini 22 revolver, and shot them.

They ran away to the ER. NAILED!

In so many words, he said next time, and he said to him self in the interview "Shut up"
