She Helped the Burglar

A burglar was working hard to break into Betty Collins’ home so she opened the door for him and pointed a .357 Magnum into his face. He followed orders quite well then, lying face down and waiting for the cops to show up—eventually. “It is very likely every mother's worst nightmare. To wake up in the middle of the night, having heard a noise just outside the safety of the walls of your home and knowing that you are likely all of the protection you and your children have. A call to the police may work, but how long might it take for them to respond? Five minutes, ten? Even less may be just too long. That is the nightmare that Toledo, Ohio mom, Betty Collins, has had to live through not once… but twice in the last four months. She was ready, both times, and there are now TWO burglars who don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. It will be provided by the state. Cops willingly admit they can’t protect us. All they can do is “write it up” and MAYBE catch the criminal AFTER the crime has been committed and maybe somebody killed. A Mom with a gun can STOP crime—at least to her family. But the “anti-gun fools” aren’t listening. They just want to disarm people like this Mom, saying people doing this is a myth. Who’s right? It’s a “myth” that was very real to two burglars. She helped them see the light. (Eagle Rising)
