A Myrtle Beach woman refused to be a victim when a man armed with a knife attempted to rob her, then threatened to kill her. The incident happened early Friday morning, Feb. 15, as reported by WBTW News 13.
The woman had just parked her car to go to work when the man approached her and demanded money as he pushed her farther into the car. However, the woman did not give in. Instead, she kicked him, which only infuriated him more. He responded by saying, “You’re dead.” She responded by pulling a pistol from the glove box. At which point he quickly fled the scene leaving behind his knife and baseball cap.
The woman was not injured during the incident, but, no doubt, it could have ended much worse for her had she not been armed. Additionally, this is another story of guns being used in self-defense where no shots were even fired, thus it will likely be left out of self-defense statistics.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number five.
