N.J. Logan is not to be trifled with.
This 80-year old Tampa grandma was resting her new hip upstairs after recent surgery, when she heard a “commotion” downstairs and quickly realized it wasn’t her husband, who was out playing bridge.
So she grabbed her gun, and ran to the steps.
“I don’t know what was going on in my mind. Honestly, all I wanted was my gun,” she told WTVT-TV, adding that she “really didn’t want to have to shoot anybody.”
Sure enough, a would-be robber had smashed her glass door with a rock and cut out the screen. She yelled at him and warned him that she had a gun. But when she called for help, she was stunned to hear their advice.
“When I called 911, she kept saying, ‘put the gun down, put the gun down.’ And I said, ‘No…I’ll put the gun down when I see the police,’” Logan recalled.
Damn straight! As we say, “When seconds count, the police are minutes away.” Nothing will protect a woman under threat as well as cold steel and a trigger.
It was a request that this tough grandma refused to fulfill while there were still likely one or more criminals in her house.
Her shouts seemed to have worked – as the man or men were scared away, with police investigating.
And N.J. says there’s no way she’ll be getting rid of her gun, especially after the scary incident. She told MTVT-TV that she is a strong believer in having “guns inside your house” because no one “has the right to break into your private domain.”
“I’ll definitely have the gun up there,” she added, “that is for sure.”
