Everyday Feminine Protection...#2

Lock and load, ladies...

Tough isn't a word necessarily associated with Miss America, but three thieves arrested after their truck tires were shot out by 82-year-old Venus Ramey might beg to differ.

Ramey, who won the elite beauty crown in 1944, confronted one of the three robbers on her farm in Waynesburg, Ky., about 140 miles south of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

"He was probably wetting his pants," said Ramey, who balanced on her walking stick as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.

james... it's all about being prepared.

and to be prepared you have to actually consider the possibility that bad things can and may happen... to you, or those you love.

as kathy shaidle says... "remember, when we say 'we don't know what we'd do under the same circumstances', we make cowardice the default position."

be prepared.

Americans are lucky that they get to defend themselves, too bad that sort of thing is not allowed in Canada since Canadians prefer to be victims.

well... you do what you gotta do and deal with the consequences. i'm not gonna let some junkie burglar plunge a rusty screwdriver into my chest.

i catch somebody breakin' into my house in the middle of the night... and he's moving toward me and mine with speed and purpose, i'm gonna double ought buck his scrawny ass right out of his air jordans and worry about the legal stuff later.

my home, my castle... your bad luck if you make an unwise career choice.
