Thugs Attack 'Vulnerable' Woman with a Concealed Carry: It Doesn't End Well for Them
Lone female knows her Second Amendment rights, thieves get more than they bargained for
A group of thugs targetted a lone woman in her car during a violent robbery this week, but it did not go well for them when their "vulnerable" female "victim" turned out to be a Second Amendment patriot.
The incident occurred near the intersection of Oak Avenue and South Pine Street in Sebring, Florida, about 2:25 a.m. Tuesday.
A woman was sitting in her vehicle in a parking lot when at least four males approached her, police said in a news release.
One of the men pointed a gun at the woman and told her to get out of her vehicle.
Police said the thieves then ordered her to hand over her purse and phone at gunpoint.
Meanwhile, other crooks in the gang climbed into her car.
One of the males entered her vehicle through the front passenger door and began rummaging through her personal property in the interior, police said.
The violent mob then demanded she gives up her keys, phone, and wallet.
The situation began to rapidly escalate as the thugs became increasingly aggressive.
However, little did the thieves realize, things were about to make a sudden turn and this woman wasn't about to become just another victim.
Fortunately, the woman had prepared for such an attack by exercising her God-given constitutional rights as a U.S. patriot.
Knowing her 2A rights, the woman had a concealed carry firearm and was able to grab her gun and neutralize the attack.
As she drew her weapon, it hit the thugs like a ton of bricks as they suddenly realized they had bitten off more than they could chew.
A struggle then commenced between the woman, the armed male, and the male inside her vehicle, police said.
Police said the "vulnerable" woman initially fought off both suspects.
Then, as the armed male pushed his luck and went back after her, she fired one shot from her gun.
At this point, the entire crew fled the area, police said, adding that the shot didn't hit any of the suspects.
Police said all the suspects were wearing hoodies and masks, and a deployed K-9 wasn't able to locate them.
Cops added that in the same time frame as the incident involving the woman sitting in her vehicle, there were reports of vehicle burglaries on Hickory Street and Eucalyptus Street.
Folks perusing the Facebook page of the Sebring Police Department were happy to hear that the woman used her gun to protect herself:
- "Fantastic she had firearm, was able to get round off," one commenter wrote. "Thank God she survived! Hopefully this gang of violent criminals will be found, brought to justice."
- "Glad to hear the female victim is OK. But too bad the wanna be thugs didn't get shot; lucky for them," another commenter said. "Hopefully next time they attempt it they will need body bags."
- "Glad she was unharmed," another commenter noted. "Women are at a higher risk when they enter their car and do not immediately lock the doors. Many times they are looking at to-do lists or receipts or making calls [and] texts. We must lock the doors upon entering. And carry a weapon; get your [concealed carry] permit."
