Everybody knows that punk criminals tend to target those viewed as the weakest and most vulnerable in society, particularly the elderly.
But thanks to the Second Amendment-protected natural right to keep and bear arms we enjoy in America, the elderly are not always as weak and vulnerable as one might presume, a lesson recently learned by a pair of would-be burglars in Georgia.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 78-year-old Elaine Stiehl was preparing to lie down for a nap when she heard strange noises coming from the front of her home.
Stiehl retrieved a handgun and proceeded to investigate the disturbance, at which point she discovered two strange men standing in the hallway.
Without grandma even having to fire a shot, the two would-be burglars turned tail and quickly fled the home, escaping to a waiting SUV being driven by a woman, which immediately sped away from the scene.
