Armed 85-year-old woman makes intruder call cops

you go grandma!!! :thumbsup:

POINT MARION, Pa. - An 85-year-old woman boldly went for her gun and busted a would-be burglar inside her home, then forced him to call police while she kept him in her sights, police said. “I just walked right on past him to the bedroom and got my gun,” Leda Smith said.

Smith heard someone break into her home Monday afternoon and grabbed the .22-caliber revolver she had been keeping by her bed since a neighbor’s home was burglarized a few weeks ago.

“I said ‘What are you doing in my house?’ He just kept saying he didn’t do it,” Smith said.


Good on her.


Altho, in retrospect, the perp is pro’ly thinking he ought to have made a break for it. That little .22 wouldn’t have done more than sting a little, unless she got really lucky :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:
