Woman’s gun scares off bat-wielding attackers

Good for her, another self-defense story that the Left will ignore

Dinah Burns is licensed to carry a concealed gun, but she’d only recently started taking her weapon while walking her dog.

Based on what happened, it looks like she’ll make a point of carrying from now on.

“I think if they’d gotten any closer, I probably would have fired,” said Burns.

It was Monday when Burns was on a footpath near Sanderson Elementary School.

“Two gentlemen came out of the woods, one holding a baseball bat, and said ‘You’re coming with us’.”

The men weren’t deterred by Dinah’s dog Gracie.

“I said, ‘Well, what do you want?,’ and as I was saying that I reached in to my pocket and slipped my gun out, slipped the safety off as I pulled it out.  As I was doing that the other gentleman came toward me and raised the baseball bat.  And, I pointed the gun at them and said, ‘I have this and I’m not afraid to use it.'”

The men took off and so far have eluded police.  Dinah posted about the incident on Facebook to alert friends and neighbors, to criticism by some.

Shame on the folks criticizing her. She saved herself, that is the point isn’t it? I do not know her situation, but obviously neither do those criticizing her. The point of being armed is to stop the threat. In this case that was accomplished by pulling her weapon.
