WOODY MARSHALL/wmarshall@macon.comLulu Campbell stands beside her bullet-riddled Toyota Tundra truck Monday. She was driving this truck when two men attempted to rob her Saturday night in Macon. The two men shot at her and she returned fire, hitting one of the robbers. WOODY MARSHALL — wmarshall@macon.comBuy Photo

Looking at Lulu Campbell’s bullet-riddled silver Toyota Tundra, common sense says the 57-year-old grandmother should be dead.

It’s impossible to tell how many bullets were fired at 2 a.m. Saturday morning on English Avenue, but what started as an armed robbery attempt turned into a full-blown firefight.

Well, it’s hard to hit your target when you’re holding your gun sideways in that Gansta gorilla grip.

Sometimes she didn’t miss. Some 35 years ago, she shot her husband and his mistress after catching them together. ......LOL!

What a great article tho....This little gal owns 13 convenience stores and gives most of her profits away to charities, wow! Talk about living the American dream thru hard work...

Awesome woman, wish she made up the majority of grandmothers! Not much better than to read that an armed robber was taken down by a pissed off granny.

“I saw the guy in front of me, and I said, ‘Oh my God, there are two of them.’ I said I’m going to take one of them with me. . . "
At that point, Campbell said she didn’t want to leave the safety of her truck and risk trying to make a run for the house. She drove the truck out of the driveway.
“I thought that the only way to protect myself was to run him down,” she said. “Otherwise, he would have gotten away.”

DO NOT mess with this lady.

Because shooting one of them just wasn't quite enough. What a woman.

Yay Lulu! You go girl!

Oh, wait; according to the race-baiters, I'm supposed to hate Lulu because she is of Haitian extraction, and is therefore magically "black". And she clearly has American Indian ancestry, and so I'm supposed to hate her more.

Oh, wait; I am of American Indian ancestry. So, how does the race theory play out now?

/sarcasm, in case you need the tag.

Good on this lady for using her 2nd Amendment rights to defend herself against these punks.

Well, it’s hard to hit your target when you’re holding your gun sideways in that Gansta gorilla grip.

It's even harder to get the pistol to fire again, when the slide does not go back into battery when the brass from the previous round FALLS back into the ejection port, jamming the slide.

Duh.

I have actually tried the gangsta grip with a Glock. The most annoying part is that the brass flies right up in your face. Really hot brass, right between the eyes. I want to do everything I can to encourage this shooting style in others.

Fascinating story. This woman has lived quite a life. And apparently has built up a whole chain of convenience stores while doing it.

LOL! Well, you really don't have to anything to encourage it, because gangsta-grill, self-described "no-limit ni**as" like Trayyyyvon will do it anyway, as they have had no firearms training except from their homies, and I doubt any of them are NRA-certified.

The Gun Toting Granny looks be either a

“White Hispanic”
or a
“White Native American”
or a
“White Asian”

It is those damn whites killing blacks again.....

Somebody call the MSM and tell them they have a new story they can use against the 2nd amendment!!!

Philipina women can be quite the forces of nature to be reckoned with; ferociously loyal and just plain ferocious when pissed off! Lulu is a proud American capitalist, loving every bit of the American dream!

(and her husband shiouldn’t have been messing around...but it sounds like nobody was killed or even injured too much. I wonder what “shot” meant in this case...rock salt in a shot gun? Cops just don’t “not press charges” in gun assault cases involving an aggrieved spouse and a cheating partner unless there were unusual circumstances mitigating against said charges)

So it would seem. And to top it all off, she's just 4'11" tall.

I would imagine that if she "shot" her husband for messing around, it couldn't have been too serious. He presumably stood up for her and used his influence as a LEO to defuse the situation.

I'm supposed to hate Lulu because she is of Haitian extraction, and is therefore magically "black". And she clearly has American Indian ancestry, and so I'm supposed to hate her more.

Article says she is a Filipina. Neither Black nor White. Nor American Indian either. Story doesn't say what "race" her husband was either. Not that it matters a hoot in a holl'r. Wonder how much damage she did to her husband's mistress? :)

Everyone is missing that this obviously white woman has injured a sweet boy and probably damaged the self esteem of the other.

Technically "a yellow woman" or since she's a Filipina, sort of a cross between yellow (Asian) and brown (Melanesian).
