Kudos to this grandma!!!
A grandmother in Milwaukie, Ore., is organizing a "Glock Block," a pistol-packing group of neighbors that she said she hopes will help deter crime
in her community.
Coy Tolonen, 65, said the idea came to her last Thursday after she tried and failed to chase down a thief who ran away with her beloved bronze yard
Later that evening, the grandmother of three said she realized a door to her home had been jimmied open, possibly by the same man she said stole her
"It just made my blood run cold because our grandkids are playing here a lot, and one of them could have been snatched just as easily as the
statue," she told ABCNews.com.
"These guys need to know if you're going to pick on a little old lady, then lots of the ladies I know are packing [guns]. They're sweet ladies but
if it's their life, I'm sorry you're going to lose yours," Tolonen said.
I love this, lets start seeing more of these neighborhood groups.
I know you anti gun, freedon hating libs (you know who you are) will most undoubtedly chime in saying this wont deter crime. I call BS, no thief in
their right mind will try to enter a house when the occupant is armed.
I'm sorry, with the rate of crime rising crazily, this is EXACTLY what needs to be done.
Go ahead, say it. Say let the police deal with it. Guess what? They wont.
If you truely believe it, then you have nothing to worry about.
