Three Thugs Get a Surprise When they Targeted What They Thought was a Defensless Woman … Until She Pulled Out her .38 Revolver
HERO OF THE DAY … Shirley Roberts.
She said no to crime and protected herself with her .38 revolver. Yet another example of how restrictive gun laws are just so wrong.
Talk about appearances can be deceiving. As reported at KMBC, woman’s husband had just left their Kansas City home in the 10600 block of Greenwood Road to get an oil change when Shirley Roberts heard someone jiggle the knob of the front door. The woman also she saw two other men heading to the back door. The three thugs thought they had scoped out an easy mark as they looked to rob the, what they thought, defenseless woman. They could not have been more wrong, thankfully. Shirley Roberts, who had been recently going to the shooting range to practice, whipped out her .38 revolver and started shooting at the would be thugs protecting herself. The police later arrested three individuals after they came to Research Medical Center. One of the men was treated for a gunshot wound to his chest. Hmm, wonder if it was covered by Obamacare?
The woman said she peered through the blinds and saw the men putting on gloves and raising their feet to try to kick their way through the sliding glass doors. She said she pulled the trigger and fired straight ahead.
The woman said the men ran off, firing shots toward the house.
The woman’s husband, Oscar Roberts, said they’ve been to a shooting range to practice what to do in case something like this happened.
This is just yet another example of how those who want to restrict guns and call for gun control from “We the People” are so wrong and misguided. A .38 revolver is the ultimate equalizer. One 52 year old woman was able to fend off three thugs and incapacitate them to the point where they would later be arrested by police. What would have happened if she was not allowed to own a gun? She would have been a victim.
A group of thugs figured it would be easy to overpower one Kansas City woman. After all, her husband had just left to run an errand, leaving her all alone in the home.
They couldn’t have been more wrong.
The woman, later identified as Shirley Roberts, 52, immediately retrieved her gun after she heard someone jiggle the knob of the front door. She also witnessed two additional men heading to the back door.
Looking through the blinds, Roberts saw the men putting on gloves and preparing to force their way into her home. So she trained her firearm on the men and opened fire.
