This incident provides a great example of why America’s founders included the Second Amendment into the Bill of Rights — for the defense of self and others.
Six armed robbers entered a Houston-area Denny’s restaurant a little over a week ago and while there, accosted a woman’s husband. What the robbers failed to factor into their plans was that the woman, who was in the ladies room at the time, possessed a concealed carry permit, she was carrying a firearm, and she wasn’t afraid to use it. And use it she did, according to Click2Houston.
When she exited the restroom and saw the six robbers and her husband on the floor, she drew her weapon and opened fire. After a brief shootout, the robbers scurried from the scene.
The woman’s brother-in-law, who didn’t wish to be identified, described the event as follows:
“She said she came out of the restroom and saw my brother on the floor. That’s when she started doing what she gotta do. She got a license and she’ll do anything to protect her kids and my brother,” he said. “Self-defense saved my brother’s life,” he added.
No patrons or bystanders were injured.
At that point, I can only imagine that she secured her weapon, finished her “Grand Slam” breakfast and asked her husband what his plans were for the day. Of course, I have a rather vivid imagination.
