I recently wrote about people defending themselves against crime here and here.

Now, I give you Part 3 in the trilogy:

At a bus stop in Chicago’s Far South Side Tuesday morning, a 25-year-old woman was approached by a 19-year-old guy who decided he’d rob her.

OH! Bad for her.

He brandished his weapon.

Good goin’, dude.

But around 5:45 a.m., he hit a snag.

Ms. 25-Year-Old had a concealed carry permit.

She unconcealed what she was carrying, and the gun lost some weight — the exact amount of one bullet.

Not merely coincidentally, the guy gained the same amount of weight. Via his neck.

His neck!!!!

He decided to abort mission. And get the @#$%@! out of there.

Police found him a block away. Not havin’ a good time.

At Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, he was pronounced dead.

As of Tuesday afternoon, no charges had been filed.

Stories of people defending themselves with firearms abound. Yet, when things go the other way, the national media seems far more interested. For more tales of the 2nd Amendment coming to the rescue of Americans in danger, please see here, here, here, here, and here.

Women can be strong. Tough. Fierce. Such as in this story. And here. And here. And here. Where are the feminists, to celebrate them? Shouldn’t they be hailed as examples of female independence? To my way of thinking, they seem made of far more resilient material than that which motivates someone to put on a kitty hat and yell into the ether about “women’s rights.” These are women who saved themselves, using the rights granted to them by the Constitution. That makes them laudable as not just women, but Americans.
