Once again the best equalizer for this “pistol packing granny” came in a nickel-platted stub nosed .38-caliber handgun, no bigger then a breadbox.
The “fiery’ well armed silver-haired Texas granny wasn’t about to go down without a fight as she was suddenly confronted by an armed intruder, Sunday night as she was just about to settle in, to watch her favorite local news program.
When suddenly Rebbie Roberson’s front door was kicked in by a masked glove wearing burglar brandishing a handgun, and pointing the weapon to her face.
However the petite, 74-year old Bowie County resident, had a surprise for the threatening invader, her own neatly tucked away silver-platted .38-caliber pistol nearby, which she easily reached and immediately began firing at the startled intruder, who quickly made a beeline for the splintered front door.
"I tried to kill him," said Roberson, who always keeps her nickel-platted, fully loaded pistol at the ready and close by when she’s at home.
Roberson was later interviewed by her favorite local new station KSLA News 12, where she recounted her harrowing experience.
Saying: "And when I started to get up, he was in here on me with a gun facing me right to my face."
Roberson continued: "Anybody break in on me, I'm going to kill them. He's going to kill me or I'm going to kill him. I'm not sure I didn't hit him. I don't know yet. I sure tried. I sure was hoping.”
Adding: "That was the scare of my life."
Bowie County, Texas, sheriff's deputies are investigating the break-in and are looking for any leads as to the bandit’s identity.
"It could have been worse for both individuals, both the victim and the suspect," Bowie County sheriff's Chief Deputy Jeff Neal said.
Adding: "Every citizen, according to the Texas penal code, has the right to defend themselves and their family."
No doubt this incident could have ended tragically, however what the mainstream media and anti-gun advocates seldom acknowledge, is that the data shows more lives are overwhelmingly saved by handgun’s used by law-abiding individuals protecting themselves, then not!
