The great equalizer…
Nothing says, “I won’t be a defenseless sitting pigeon,” like a gun.
ABC 13 reports – A woman shot and wounded a suspected robber who reached for her purse, police say.
Police say Lachelle Hudgins had just parked her vehicle outside her home when two men reached through her driver’s side window and grabbed her purse. Before they could take it, Hudgins frantically reached into her bag and grabbed her gun.
“I couldn’t do anything except scream. At one point, they told me to stop screaming, and he reached his hand inside my car,” Hudgins explained.
Officials say she fired two rounds and the men ran away.
“It was all I had in my gun. I shot until I couldn’t shoot anymore,” Hudgins said.
Five men tried to rob a young woman this morning. They didn’t expect her to grab her handgun and fire. Today, she is unharmed, and at least one suspect is shot. Exclusive #ABC13 interview at 4:30 & 6. https://t.co/OW8oZoQTkQ #Hounews pic.twitter.com/IS8htwfx7t

A short time later, authorities received a call about a man found shot on the other side of the complex.
The suspect underwent surgery. He’s expected to face aggravated robbery charges.
Hudgins told ABC13 that she still can’t believe she survived an attempted robbery unscathed.
“I saved my life,” Hudgins said.
As stores like Walmart are making it harder and harder to purchase guns and ammunition, Ms. Hudgin’s story reminds us of how important it is for innocent Americans to have the legal right to carry a gun. Caving to the left’s demands for gun control won’t make law-abiding citizens any safer, it will only serve to disarm them, while criminals will still have weapons, and will be encouraged to commit more crimes against defenseless citizens.
Does this story make you want to turn in your gun, or does it make you want to make sure you’re always carrying a gun?
