How A Great-Grandmother Used A Gun to Keep Safe From Home Intruder

Anti-gunners keep trying to push gun control as a way to protect people as if guns have ever been the cause of danger or violence. Oh, they’ll tell you, when you push them on that issue, that they just want to make sure that those who would do evil can’t get their hands on a gun (and, maybe, they mean that), but the fact of the matter is that that gun control really only has the effect of keeping people from being able to defend themselves from violent people.

So, what kind of people use guns to defend themselves against criminals and would-be criminals? People like 79-year old great grandmother Gwendolyn Agard from Georgia. Bobby Cherry gives us the details:

A Georgia great-grandmother has a warning for intruders: don’t mess with her.

When a suspected burglar broke into her home earlier this month, Gwendolyn Agard did what anybody would do and called 911.

The 79-year-old also grabbed her gun to protect herself and her home.

“I’ve always said, don’t ever let anybody come in and run you out of your own house,” she told WSB-TV.

The suspected burglar went up the backstairs of her house and broke a window to get in.

“And I said to him, ‘You come down these damn steps and I’ll blow your f—— brains out,'” she said. “That’s exactly what I said.”

That’s when she fired two shots — both missed the suspect.

But when police arrived, they found the man hiding in the closet of a bedroom.

“That’s why I say she’s my hero,” mail carrier Connie Oliver said. “That she could do this at her age, I was very impressed. And I’m thankful the good Lord took care of her.”

And Agard agrees.

“Trust me. God was all in the picture,” she said. “Because my legs were trembling. I was saying, ‘Lord have mercy, Jesus.’ And then, ‘m—–f—-r’ the next time. It was all mixed in.”

The intruder faces a number of charges, including home invasion.

This great grandmother wasn’t looking for trouble. She wasn’t looking for violence to happen. And her gun didn’t start a fight on its own.

This is what anti-gunners don’t seem to be able to grasp: Violence can happen to anyone because people who want to cause violence will use whatever they have on hand to do the evil deed. But a firearm levels the playing field so that an elderly woman can make a criminal back down.

Gun rights have never been about starting a fight. Gun rights are about protecting oneself when the fight comes to you.

  1. Amen!! And with a little weakness and Fragility mixed in I prefer she have 30(at least) bullets in the magazine. (I am starting to get old myself)

  2. Having a gun when it’s needed makes all the difference. Needing a gun and not having it would have been tragic.

  3. Read all about it in the New York Times Fishwrap of Record. Yeah; right! (With thanks to Gerald Cilente for the FoR nomenclature.)

  4. Exactly right! When seconds matter, the police are minutes away, through no fault of their own. More often than not, the police are coming to collect evidence. That said, te author is correct. The criminals will use whatever they have to commit their crime, a gun, although illegal, being one of the tools available to them. Criminals do not care about nor do they adhere to gun laws. If these gun-grabbers don’t actually know this, it is certainly time that they woke up!

    • Gun grabbers know this. They don’t care because guns are icky. The ones that aren’t afraid of guns are more sinister in their to disarm for the purposes of mass control.

      • Exactly! The DemonRat party is a carbon copy of Communist Party USA and won’t settle for anything less that total confiscation and putting guns solely into the hands of government. Think of all the mass murders that took place in Europe and Asia when that was enacted; think Ukraine, Armenians, Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Communist China, “Rape of Nanking” etc.

        Fact of the matter is that “governm we came from.ents” as an entity have zero interest in protecting private citizens; their sole interest is power and the illusion of protection (as in “gun control”) in order to stay in power. Private citizens? Plenty more where

      • Actually most gun grabbers don’t dislike guns because they want to keep theirs and want their security to be armed along with the police. They just don’t want you and me to have firearms.

  5. NO ONE IS TAKING MY GUN ITS A DAM SHAME WHEN OLDER PEOPLE LIKE ME (69) CAN’T RESIDE IN OUR HOMES WITHOUT SOME ASSHOLE TRYING TO TAKE WHAT WE WORKED SO HARD FOR FREE COUNTRY I DOUBT IT .
