Don't mess with granny!
According to WKYC TV (Akron Ohio), Eleanor Lynn, of Akron, Ohio, keeps a .380 handgun "loaded and nearby at all times."
"I already had the gun out," she said. "Somebody was breaking into my house so I took the gun out and went to the door. They flew."As a side, I'm not impressed at all with the presentation of the story. The photo is a glaring ethical violation--totally staged, and not noted as such. A little more detail would be cool, but what can you expect from a TV station?
She'd been robbed before and wasn't about to let it happen again.
"All I got to do is hold this trigger and it goes six times without stopping," Lynn explained. "I just bought this one and this one has never been used I'd like to have a chance to use it."
Lynn's neighbor quickly called police who arrested the suspects, ages 15 and 17, in nearby yards.
