Click on Detroit reported, via Gun Saves Lives:

When a young man tried to rob a woman, a great-grandmother, on a bus in Detroit, the woman fought back.

There were other people on the bus when the man tried to assault the woman and steal her backpack and purse, but no one made a move to help the woman.

The suspect fled with the items at the next stop, but the woman got off the bus, going after him, and confronting him. When the suspect turned to confront her, the grandmother, a concealed weapons permit holder, then drew her semi-automatic 9mm pistol and fired 11 shots at the suspect.

The suspect was able to get away. It is unknown if the man was hit.

The woman used a semi-auto 9mm that held at least 11 rounds. This type of weapon would be banned under Dianne Feinstein’s proposed assault weapons ban.

    someone needs to hit the gun range and practice…. 11 shots and he ran? Must not have been hit hard.
    Other than that, way to go!!!

  • Skandia Recluse

    Ya, Obama was just saying that urban areas are different from rural areas. Out in the country we hunt deer, turkey, pheasant, ducks, geese.

    In the urban areas, people need weapons for self defense from human predators. Big difference there.

  • Granny

    That grandma had better get her eyes checked and go out to the range and learn how to aim that thing if she’s gonna carry it. 11 shots? No way he should have been running away.

    “No one on the sidewalk was hurt.”

    Notice how he interjected that no innocent person was hurt – subtly warning that if people have guns, who knows what innocents will be shot.

    Three cheers for her!!!

  • PJay

    Good for her! But aside from that — a “great-grandmother” in Detroit? I’ll bet she’s no older that 42…

  • Nosmo

    Umm…She was ‘for’ gun-control before she was ‘against’ it….

  • Redwine

    In the words of that great-grandma, “I used to support gun-control. No more.”

    And that ain’t hunting…

    Tyranny-loving Feinstein, Cuomo, and “Skeet-Shooter” Hussein, you hear that???!!

  • USMC Thomas

    “U bye yo self, b1tch!” Shameful.

  • chaz

    Three questions I’d like to know the answer to:
    1) When did this woman stop supporting gun control?
    2) When did this woman start carrying.
    3) Did 2) happen before 1) or the other way around?

  • Sam Stone

    More practice REQUIRED!!! She could have hit an innocent.

  • A_Nonny_Mouse

    You realize that if the LoopyLibbies address this at all, they’ll say she should NOT have shot at him, that “it was only ‘stuff’ and ‘stuff’ is replaceable”.

    The Libaroonies don’t notice that it takes TIME and WORK to earn however-much-money was required to BUY that “stuff”. When that mugger/ thief steals your “stuff”, he’s taking from you –not just the “stuff” itself– but the number of hours (or days, or weeks) that it took to earn the money you purchased the stuff with. And afterward, you’ll have to work MORE hours/ weeks/ however-long to be able to replace the stuff.

    So, by my lights, “Shoot The [email protected]@rd” is a reasonable response. Once the little twit violates another person’s civil rights, it’s reasonable to assume that he has willingly forfeited HIS civil rights.

    Um…before we celebrate this Dirty Harriet, some fun facts to consider.

    I don’t know what time this happened, but it’s unlikely a 93 year old was on the bus late at night. Lets say afternoon, on a street with at least moderate traffic, and most likely a not deserted sidewalk.

    So this lady pulls out a gun and fires off 11 shots, and not only didn’t she put him down, it’s not even clear if he was hit??? So…uh…where the hell did all those bullets go? This bimbo granny was obviously spraying bullets wildly. Good grief…is that anyone’s idea of a “BOOOYAAAA…YOU GO GRANDMA!!!” moment? Get real. This just goes to prove another angle of the whole gun control angle…not everyone SHOULD have a gun. If you can’t shoot the damn thing, then drop the bull**** “I’ma packin’ and goona shot anyone who deserves it.”

    Oh, and speaking of “deserves it,” if she DID manage to plug the guy, it would be interesting to see how it plays out in court. Is it self defense if you chase down a guy who robbed you? NO…NO IT IS NOT. Yeah…yeah…the guy supposedly confronted her, but what the hell does that mean? If he said, “beat it, you old bag…I got your stuff, and I ain’t giving it back,” do any of you Rambos out there think she has/had a right to pull her gun and start blasting? And by the way, it’s evident from the story (firing 11 shots, the guy got away, it’s unclear if he was even hit) that the guy was running away from her while she was spraying bullets wildly. Dream on, if you think THAT is anything close to justified self defense.

    No…Gateway, you blew it (again). This isn’t any type of “thank God she was armed” story to celebrate. It was a mess, and Granny should be thrown in jail, based on her reckless endangering of society, and opening fire in a case of non self defense.

    Possible she carrying the pistol and believe Traitor in Chief in the past.
    Present she continue to carry the pistol and stop supporting gun control.

  • Patty

    add, for the second and third time. You see you may have a permit but you have to keep up on them pretty much forever.

  • Patty

    They’ll have to pry her gun out of her dead hands. Sorry, but people aren’t going to give up their guns. Obama won’t be there to protect them, now will he.

    Bubba
    The strange thing is why didn’t the grandma point the pistol at the mugger before he took her items?

  • Lim Lynn

    Is it precise and accurate shooting or random shooting hope no stray bullet hit the mugger even if he was running away. You may never know the bullet trajectory.

    DETROIT (WJBK) — When a local great grandma couldn’t find a good Samaritan to fight off a mugger, she went for the next best thing —
    her gun.

    At 11:30 Thursday morning on a bus near the University of Detroit
    Mercy
    , a guy in his early twenties attacked Ramona Taylor-Kamate.

    “He said, ‘Give me my bag auntie.’ I said, ‘I am not your auntie, boy,
    and this is not your bag.’ So he hit me. So when he hit me, we started
    fighting,” she explained.

    Taylor-Kamate said there were more men than women on that packed
    bus, but not one guy would help her. She traded punches with the punk,
    then he grabbed her purse and ran out on the sidewalk with grandma
    dragging along. She said other bus riders yelled he has a gun.

    “He reached down like he was going in his boot. They already [said]
    he had a gun in his boot. So he reached down in his boot. When he
    reached down, I went in my secret compartment… and got my H&K
    out and I started shooting at him.”

    She has a concealed pistol license and said she feared for her life. She
    fired her 9 millimeter handgun and emptied the gun. She said he ran
    away with her purse and did not appear to be hit. She had ten rounds
    in her magazine and one more loaded in the chamber. She fired all
    eleven shots.

    No one on the sidewalk was injured.

    Detroit Police responded quickly. They interviewed
    grandma and the witnesses, then left the scene.

    The mugger got away with some cash, her concealed pistol license and
    some personal items. Police found some of those items more than a mile
    away.

    This case is not closed. Taylor-Kamate told me she will meet with police
    again in a couple of days. They are holding her gun. If anyone shows
    up at a hospital with a bullet wound they will
    check ballistics.

    Taylor-Kamate is confident she was facing a deadly threat
    and believes she acted responsibly to protect herself.]

    guess researching & reading are beyond some people’s intelligence.. :roll:

    Jim Hoft had been limiting more than 5 links. It been a slow day yet again.

  • Toa

    A few years ago I watched a video of a commuter train, with a trashy black street-punk girl dancing and “rapping” while harrassing and cursing a white-haired old black lady. This went on for some time, and not one of the passengers made a move to take up for the old lady until her hat fell off, at which point a couple of young men sauntered over and picked up her hat for her and “kind of asked” her to “be cool”.
    Is it any wonder that black neighborhoods are so dangerous?

    If Odumbo had a granny with a gun she would look like this woman. Why does Odumbo hate granny?

    You need more training and to spend more time at the range Gramma. I’d be willing to train you.

    Bubba is the Dumb and lincoln’s widow is the Dumber. Bubba couldn’t help his leftist self by his stupid comment saying grandma was wrong in defending herself before reading the whole story and/or checking it out for himself.

    Heck, for all we know, Grandma hit the mugger 11 times. So, until we have all the facts, Dumb & Dumber will just continue to make stupid remarks against legal law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with guns.

    The New York Times – “56-YEAR-OLD WOMAN ATTACKS MAN WITH ASSAULT WEAPON”

    From the article – “The weapon, which had a pistol grip and a capacity of more than 10 rounds, was fired in public endangering an unknown number of innocent bystanders. The number of injured is unclear at this time.”

    Great-Grandmother Stops Violent Mugger

    Apparently she stopped nothing. The “mugger” got away … with the victim’s belongings. But be sure to chalk this up as another great CCW victory.

  • Matt Bernard

    You clearly misquoted her in the intro caption above the clip. I recommend that you change it now because you are claiming she said she is no longer for gun control but that is not the case. UPDATE THE QUOTE IMMEDIATELY!

  • paul52

    I agree with the woman’s motives…. but, if she shoots a perp in the back… no longer self-defense. Legally, ‘the fight is over.’ Not a fair deal, but that’s how it plays out in court with CCW. If she shot him in the chest or front of head, probably defensible in court. Gotta pick your spots… carefully.

    The sad part of this story is the fact nobody helped the lady. I hope the thug was hit

  • This headline is inaccurate. The grandmother did not stop the mugger, e got away and the money was still stolen. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jan/28/gutsy-great-grandmother-fires-mugger-9-mm-handgun/

    Thanks PJay. I needed that laugh. I have been there and have witnessed the result of welfare moms.

  • Commiefornia

    The do nothing witnesses are almost as despicable as the mugger. You can’t rely on others or the police for your safety. You can only rely on yourself. Screw Feinstein, Cuomo and Obama who want to disarm good people like this woman here.

    Also, if you’re going to have a CCW permit you have to get at least 2 guns listed on it in case something like this happens because the police are going to hold the gun until their investigation is complete. And, if you have one gun you’re defenseless until they give it back unless you have a 2nd gun on the permit.
