Police in TN believe a 72 year old great-grandmother probably foiled an attempted robbery attempt at a Dollar General store.
The woman became suspicious when a strange car with two young men inside parked behind her business, adjacent to the Dollar General.
When the woman confronted the men they tried to approach her and get something out of the car. Following her instincts that something was up, the woman drew her .22 caliber handgun and pointed it at the men, ordering them to put their hands on the car.
One of the men tried to retrieve something from the car, but the woman fired a warning shot to stop them. When police arrived they found drugs, guns, and clothes meant to conceal the wearer’s identity in the car.
The men were arrested for several charges each.
Sadly, the brave woman says she doesn’t support owning semi-automatic rifles or magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
