Well, I guess the folks out there that are against citizens having the right to protect themselves with guns might just be right!
But what happens when there's no fruit at hand?

What is it about older people and fruit assault?


And how can we forget the almighty HANDBAG! But what if she was only carrying a change purse?



These little old ladies were lucky and I believe it had to do more with the robbers being shocked than scared. If they were not surprised so much and locked on granny it would have been altogether different.

But if granny pulled out the Glock from her girdle?

Shock Factor way up!


Peace

When is a drive-by fruiting going to become part of gun bans?

As soon as they become the norm. And by the looks of these videos it will happen very soon...


Gotta get those deadly papayas off the streets somehow.

What if she had missed?
How many innocent bystanders did she put in danger by trying to be a hero?
Fruit should be illegal.
I am for fruit control.

Don't underestimate those old women.
I know from experience that my grandmother could be rather skilled at throwing things when as a child I would unravel her yarn balls all over her living room like a cat on speed while she screamed at me and unleashed the terror of her flying shoes

Agreed!

As soon as we get these deadly gourds off the street, the better off we'll all be. My God! What if she had a banana? Horror indeed.

Remember...People don't kill people...Mangoes kill people.


Peace

Seriously good thing she didn't have an artichoke handy - blood would be flowing...on a more serious note, of course you can get arrested for assault for throwing apples at people - should I post the examples?

Good point!

So maybe we should ban grannies as well?

Brings to mind the guy getting charged for letting a fart go in someone's general direction. Sad but true.

I like your line in regard to the previous poster - perhaps grannies should be outlawed in general...not really but considering the bs we deal with today...I'm shocked people with gumption aren't immediately arrested!

Well, I guess she went to the store for some "fruit punch".....


And I agree - both grannies and fruit should be banned -- way too dangerous!

Calling Nancy Pelosi right now.

Soon, an outspoken opinion will be cause for arrest...

Getting very close.

Can we ban Pelosi? And Barbara B.? And the other Nancy? And Hilary? And Michelle...Not yet a granny but prevention is the best tool we have with this one.

Good for them! More people need to be more secure! for real. I give those people mad props, most people I know would just give the items to the burglar than call 911. I say, you invade my bubble, you're facing the consequences. But that's me.

Did anyone notice a common denominator amongst the perps though? Just throwing that out there.
