Memphis Woman Robbed at Gunpoint Twice, Buys Gun, Stops Third Robbery (VIDEO)

A business owner in Memphis had her sporting goods store robbed at gunpoint twice in less than three months. But when the would-be robbers came back again, the woman refused to be a victim for the third time.

“I guess after they got money the first time, they thought we were easy target, that they could come get money from us any time,” the woman, who did not wish to be identified, told a local news station.

“Sometimes, you know, you just don’t think, you react. You got the fear, but you also got the anger. Because you’re tired of it and we work so hard for somebody to come and just rob us like that,” she said.

After being robbed twice, the woman bought a .38 and prepared to use it if need be. When three men came into the store Monday night, aimed a gun at her and her sister and demanded money, she fought back this time. Much to their surprise, this go around she pulled out her revolver and fired a shot. She missed, but the would-be robbers ran.

“I was not that kind of person that wanted to have a gun. And I never even thought that I would shoot at somebody, but when you’re in that situation where you say it’s my life or their life, it’s my life,” the store owner explained.

Nobody was hurt, but the suspects were captured by police a few blocks away where they had their getaway car parked.

Reginald Hurd and Cordarius Miles were both arrested, charged with attempted robbery and remain in jail, each on a $50,000 bail. Local media reports that the third suspect was also captured,

Two bad she didn’t have a modern pistol, plenty of training, and too bad she didn’t send them to the coroner.

There was a watch maker in Santa Monica who got robbed 5 or 10 times and during those robberies he killed 5 of them and wounded others.

He retired to run his business on the internet.

They need to let these guys go!! The prisons are already full of too many blacks..... this is not fair and it’s racist. Just arrest OTB (Other than Blacks).

I got this gun thing all figured out.

My family has had guns since 1644.

NOT HAVING A GUN A IS A CONSTITUTIONAL ABNORMALITY.

NOT HAVING A GUN IS AN AMERICAN ABNORMALITY.

Thanks EXCH54FE. Regarding Reginald Hurd and Cordarius Miles:
"I never even thought that I would shoot at somebody, but when you're in that situation where you say it's my life or their life, it's my life."
Unfortunately, she missed. Fortunately, whichever of these doofuses was driving apparently lost the car keys, or had forgotten to fill the tank.

When this becomes the norm, it will go very hard for bandits of color. They will be shot out of hand as there will be no help from the law.

“If you fire a shot and miss, just remind yourself that it might have been the shot that would have saved someone’s life, maybe yours. Try real hard not to miss.”

Have you seen the price of .38 Special these days? Most ammo prices are slowly coming down but it seems that .38 and .22 are the and maybe a few others are the exceptions.

Memphis is falling apart. The city and the Shelby County government officials are killing the golden goose.

The slow, steady, decline seems to have become a cascade.

Sad.

Cordarius.
We think alike. The first thing I said to myself was there is a name I have never heard. It must be derived from the latin word corduroy. If I remember my latin conjugations it went Corduroy - Corduras - Corduroitus.

Local media reports that the third suspect was also captured, but no record of his arrest was immediately available.

That's because police were trying to figure out how to spell and pronounce his first name.

If the New Madrid goes the nearest place that will still have infrastructure is near Selmer, Tennessee, and Corinth, Mississippi. If the New Madrid goes, our plans for disaster preparedness are to blow the bridges over the Wolf and Hatchie Rivers to keep the Memphis trash between there and the Mississippi River. I won't travel to Memphis unless I am armed. Even driving through Memphis is becoming dangerous.
