AR: 70-Year-old Woman Uses Gun to Fight off Intruders

She might not have been injured if she had the gun with her, instead of having to fight to get free to get her gun.

An elderly Midland woman was injured Thursday night (Nov. 21) after fighting off a pair of home invaders, according to the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office.

Two men wearing ski masks, black gloves and camouflage clothing entered the woman’s home on Drake Loop near Highway 253 looking for prescription medication, according Sgt. Steve Cox. Authorities said the door to home was not locked.


The sheriff’s office said one of the men grabbed the woman and tore the collar of her shirt. She ran to the bedroom and grabbed a pistol, according to authorities.

The suspect threw the woman to the bed and got on top of her. The woman pointed her pistol at the man and both men took off with her medications, according to the sheriff’s office.

Knockout game on National news:

The knockout game I remember as a kid, they would hyperventilate, hold their breath and someone would squeezs you until you passed-out. Just as if not more dangerous!

With this new game, I guess I'll have to head to the sporting good store and buy a football helmet just in case.
