    Since guns are the hot political issue of today I guess I will place the thread here

    OK gun grabbers this women saved lives with her evil gun and did not shoot an innocent by-stander.

    Police are still looking for five would-be robbers who were chased away from a Garden Grove jewelry store by a 65-year-old woman who fired at the suspects.

    The attempted heist occurred Sunday at Continental Jewelry in the 12000 block of Brookhurst Street. Surveillance footage from the store shows a white SUV backing up to the front of the building and five men getting out, pillowcases in hand.

    The men rush to the front of the counter and point handguns at the clerks and a customer. Seconds later the shots are fired and the men race back to the door, fighting to get out as the woman runs after them.

    The SUV left before three of the suspects made it back inside the vehicle. Police said they were picked up about a block away.

    Nothing was taken from the store and no one was hurt.

    I saw that. I thought it was hilarious. the only thing was she needed a big shotgun, double barrel. mounted on a tripod. and a machine gun in the other.

    As long as she legally owned the gun and used it to defend herself and her property from would-be robbers, I have no problem with this woman firing her gun. I don't know of any gun control advocates who would feel otherwise. She is not the type of person and this situation isn't the type that gun control advocates are concerned about. It's the people who use guns with extended magazines -- full of ammo bought online with no background check -- to shoot US congress members and innocent moviegoers that keep me up at night.

    I wouldn't care if she didn't own the gun if she was defending her life against a crime she has a right to defend anyway she can.

    The only problem with this story is the woman didn't kill or wound any of the scumbags. Kudos to her though for trying.

    Other than that, what a sloppy piece of journalism.
