A woman who had just finished doing overnight work in a Landrum business on Saturday was assaulted by two men, but ended up turning the tables on them when she pulled out a gun and shot at them.

On Tuesday she talked first to News 4, and she said that it was the first and only time she had ever put the gun in her back pocket -- and at first, she didn't even remember she had it with her.

For her protection, the woman's name is not being revealed.

The 41-year-old woman had left through the back door of her business at about 1 a.m. She said she got her car from the parking lot, and pulled up to the back door to retrieve an umbrella she had left inside. She said when she stepped back outside, two men confronted her.

She said when she asked the men what they wanted, one of them jerked her necklace off and the other man tore her earrings out of her ears.

The woman said that the men shoved her up against the door and told her to open it and get inside. She said when she refused and told them the door was locked, one man punched her in the jaw several times. The police report said one of the men yanked down her shirt and bra and grabbed her breasts.

"I don't think robbery was the main agenda with them because my car was running, my purse was in it, my business checkbook, my laptop, everything and my cash."

She said at the time, she didn’t even remember she had brought a gun with her.

"When I tried to get back away from them, he shoved me up against the door and I felt the gun in my back pocket

According to DOJ crime statistics, guns are used 2.5-million times per year to prevent robberies, rapes, murders, carjackings, home-invasions, etc., 99% of the time without a shot being fired.

She said, “Every woman needs to get a concealed weapons permit and carry a gun,

I keep telling my wife this but she won't. She relies on pepperspray, which is better than nothing, but I'd feel better if she'd carry. She has her own Beretta and knows how to use it.

FTA:

“Both men were dressed in dark clothing. One was wearing dark-colored basketball-style shorts and a dark ball cap with a straight bill that had bull horns on the front. The other was wearing a dark hoodie and dark, baggy cargo pants.Anyone with information is asked to call the Landrum Police Department at 864-457-7281.”

If one is to turn them in, be helpful to know their race, but I guess we have to assume they are black since one said “oh hell no” and dressed in basketball clothing.

Before that goes any further, this needs to be applied:

When race is not given, the perps are Negroes. Same with Chief Moose in MD who knew for days that the the freeway shooters were black, but refused to release the descriptions, instead perpetuating the lie that it was a Caucasian shooter in a white van.

Yep... it’s real. $40. Just go to Ebay and search for “flashbang”. Looks like there are many versions to choose from to match the weapon. After an image search, looks to me like there are competitors as well.

Any who, great that this girl was armed and willing to stand her ground.

Oops sorry I should have put a footnote to give credit where it was due...Didn’t mean to plagerize (But I was thinking along similar lines.)

For her protection, the woman's name is not being revealed.

No doubt partly because she fears being, "George Zimmermaned."

Oh, wasn’t accusing you of stealing it, just thought someone thought of it too.
Use it as you wish, maybe it will go viral.

“If one is to turn them in, be helpful to know their race...”

This story was all over the local radio news. And, yes, they’re holder’s “peeples.”

The hunt is on, and more of Holder’s “peeples” will be in jail by the weekend.

Overall, South Carolina is good at arresting Holder’s “peeples” and charging them under the state’s anti-lynching laws. It drives the racist black fascists nuts, but who cares?

There’s at least 14 Holder racists facing up to 20 years in prison in SC. And there’s not squat that the racist pig Holder can do about it.

Overall, people get along fine here in SC regardless of the racist puke obuma trying to agitate a race war.

Wish the press would defer to ALL victims of crimes that defend themselves with their guns, not to publish their names.
