Life Savers: Good News in Gun News!

Happy Friday Gun Owners! Here are a couple of Good News Gun Stories to send you off into the weekend!  I love this granny's attitude, as she feels safe with her .38-caliber pistol by her side! 

And I know this video has made its way around the internet, but I had to include it, since it's such a great visual example of how guns really do save lives!

Gun-toting S.C. granny scares off burglars

BLENHEIM, S.C. – There are certain people criminals should not mess with: martial arts experts, superheroes and Ruby Hodge of Blenheim.
When two would-be burglars broke into the 89-year-old widow’s house Monday on S.C. Highway 38 just outside of Blenheim, they probably didn’t expect to find Hodge and her .38-caliber pistol waiting for them.
Standing in her bedroom next to her pink and white floral bedspread, Hodge is just over 5 feet tall and weighs maybe 100 pounds soaking wet. However, just after 8 a.m. Monday, she was more than two grown men could handle.
“I decided I would go see who it was,” Hodge said, recalling she heard someone knock twice on her back door just off the kitchen of her small house. “But before I moved, they knocked a third time and busted my door open. I said to myself, ‘That’s a break in!'“
The men – later identified by police as Ronnie Henry Stevenson Jr., 31, of 956 High Point Road in Lydia, and Nelson Hawkins, 42, of 1564 Turnpike Road in Darlington – were no strangers to the law. Both had lengthy criminal records and were persons of interest on prior burglaries by both Marlboro County and Darlington County sheriffs’ offices.
Their experienced criminal background did them little good against Hodge.
“I got my gun,” she said, reaching under her mattress just as she did Monday morning and pulling out her .38-caliber pistol, fully loaded with six bullets. It belonged to her late husband, who died some 22 years ago. Since then it has just been Hodge and as she showed Stevenson and Hawkins, she can take care of herself.
