Default More from Detroit....

Quote:
DETROIT - Her siblings now jokingly call her Rambo.

However, Paris Ainsworth easily could have been killed. Her attackers shot her four times, but she had eight bullets for them.

"If I wouldn't have had my gun I would be dead today," she said.

It was late Saturday night when she arrived home after working a double shift. She saw two men moving closer to her as she was about to get out of her car. Before she got out, she put her .45 caliber handgun in her pocket.

"He said, 'Don't pull it,' and he shot immediately,'" said Ainsworth.

She was hit three times in the side and once in the hand. It was not her shooting hand.

Very cool. I hope she trains more and learns how to shoot center of body mass in case it happens again. I also like how she represents the need for everyday citizens to arm themselves.

Bravo Ms. Ainsworth!

Another news story with a good ending that I somehow didn't see on the television.

Doubtful we'll ever see any of this on the news, even just the local stations.

There are a couple of places where you will see stories like this, American Rifleman and Fox News. All the rest will spin it to make it look like a bad thing.

Yea, those guys didn't want to hurt her or anything, they were just down on their luck and needed some money for food... They were trying to turn their life around and become honest, hardworking Americans.

I'm glad things worked out for her, now more people in Detroit need to arm themselves and take back their city
