(AJC) – A Garden Grove, California, jewelry store owner thwarted an armed robbery with a handgun on Sunday and sent masked robbers scurrying for their lives. A surveillance video shows the gutsy 65-year-old woman with gun in hand chasing the would-be robbers outside.
The incident sends a strong message to the criminal element – engage in unlawful and threatening behavior at your peril. Instead of cowering in fear and allowing thugs to run rampant, more small business owners should follow the senior citizen’s example.
The foiled robbery follows an incident in early July when a senior citizen in Florida defended patrons of a gaming cafe against two armed robbers.
If the gun-grabbers in Congress and the United Nations have their way and manage to eventually confiscate our firearms and turn America into Second Amendment free zones like Chicago and New York, we will all become helpless victims at the mercy of criminals.
