Pistol Packin’ Granny

I suppose some of you might recall my earlier statement about “This is Texas.  We kill you back.”  On the news tonight: 

A man running from police broke into an elderly woman’s house in order to hide.  A noise alerted the family who began looking for the source.  They found a muddy footprint inside the house and began methodically searching the interior of the house.  The grandmother found the man hiding in a closet in her house.  When she ordered him out of the closet, he lunged for her gun so she shot him.  She did say that since he didn’t appear to be armed that she shot him in the leg instead of the head. 

Way to go, granny!   Next time aim higher!  That’ll be one he won’t soon forget, and still won’t be lethal.
