“Another robbery foiled by a little old lady”

  ” Out in Hendersonville, NC, an 87 year old lady persuaded two armed robbers to leave her house when they broke in at 3 AM. And by “persuaded” I mean that she showed them the handgun she
was going to shoot them with if they
didn’t exit the premises immediately.

  The best part is what the County Sheriff said.

   “People have every right to
defend their homes, and should do so,” HendersonCounty Sheriff Charles S. McDonald said after an 87-year-old woman scared off
would-be home invaders by
brandishing a handgun.

“I can’t recommend to people
what they should or should not
do, but I will tell you that first-
degree burglary — breaking into a house while it is occupied — is a serious crime,”McDonald said Saturday.

“Anybody that is going to do
that is risking a lot, so you
really have to ask yourself if
you’re confronted in a situation like that what might be at stake,” he said. “My general advice is ‘aim small, miss small.’” ”
