A New Hampshire grandmother proved that as long as the Second Amendment exists she won’t be helpless, no matter what President Obama says.
And she showed a would be thief that he picked the wrong old lady to mess with.
The 65-year-old, 4’11” 105 pound woman told reporters Tuesday that she had a sneaking suspicion something was amiss Monday night. She walked to her apartment building around 11:30 p.m. after getting off of work from her job as a poker dealer, and saw a car driving alongside her, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.
She said a man, Michael Bontaites, got out of the car and ran in front of her to block her from getting home and then reached for her purse.
That’s when the unnamed woman shot him.
“As soon as he went to grab me with his left hand, I pulled (the gun) out and shot him. I didn’t even think about it. I thought my safety was in danger,” she said.
“I’m not happy about what happened. I wish I didn’t have to do it, but my safety was my first priority,” the woman added.
Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas and Police Chief Nick Willard called the woman to check on her well-being.
Gatsas said he met the woman when he was campaigning for mayor and was happy she defended herself.
“I told her ‘I’m glad you protected yourself,’” he said he told her. “People who have the opportunity to protect themselves should.”
Ironically the shooting happened about 12 hours prior to President Obama’s lecture to the nation about why he executive fiat on gun control is a good thing.
“Honestly, I do not have a problem with background checks. Anything else he’s trying to do, forget it. He’ll never take our guns away,” the woman said.
Police seized her weapon while the investigation is ongoing but not to fear her neighbor loaned her one of his.
