Since no shots were fired this will probably be one more incident that won't be included in the statistics that show guns prevent crime.

75-Year-Old Woman Defends Herself Against Thieves
March 8, 2006, 09:23 PM EST

A couple of thieves in Akron picked the wrong house to rob, ONN Affiliate WEWS reports.

75-year-old Eleanor Lynn saw strangers coming inside her house and took action.

She pulled out her chrome-plated automatic pistol that she calls, “The Peacemaker,” and the thieves ran away.

Neighbor Loleta Gill knew that the strangers were up to no good when she saw them walking slowly in front of her neighbor’s house at around 10 a.m.

“They stopped and I was looking out the kitchen window and I could see they kept looking at the house and everything,” Gill said.

Within minutes, the thieves were at the front door of Lynn’s home.

Lynn said that she keeps her gun in her chair with her. After pulling out the gun, the thieves saw it and quickly left the premises.

She called the police and they caught the thieves a short time later.

I wish she had like a fuckin .500 S&W. Just because it would be even more unexpected.

I call the .500 S&W the peace maker.

The Brady Bunch isn't going to like her very much.

I don't know if I would be more scared of the gun or that wig.

Good "draw down" granny.

There has been a string of crimes against the elderly in Akron, OH over the last year......a few have been murdered, robbed, etc......Apparently, this woman was not going to be next!.....I say more power to her, she didn't live to be in her 70s by being a wuss.

Everyone knows that if she really had a gun, the thieves would have just taken it and used it against her.

Go granny go. I am not seeing a chrome-plated automatic pistol in that picture though.
