Gun-Toting Granny Stops Thief

This is awesome:

85 year old Leda Smith came home from church on Sunday to find that her house had been broken into. She boldly went into the house to retrieve her handgun and accost the intruder.

“I saw him move by my keyboard near the wall but I just walked right on past him to the bedroom and got my gun,” Smith said, noting that she started keeping the .22-caliber revolver by her bed after a burglary at a neighboring home several weeks ago.

“I said, ‘What are you doing in my house?'” Smith said during an interview Monday with WPXI-TV, Channel 11 in Pittsburgh, a news partner with the Herald-Standard. “He just kept saying he didn’t do it.”

Smith ordered the teen to turn around and not to run and then had him pick up the telephone and dial 911.

She then ordered the boy to give her the telephone after placing the call and she told dispatchers about the intruder.

Officials from 911 stayed on the telephone with Smith as she had the boy lay facedown and spread-eagled on the floor.

Wow…I wonder if this woman have a background in law enforcement…I could see her leading a SWAT team.

“It was exciting,” Smith said of the incident. “I just hope I broke up the ring because they have been hitting a lot of places around here.”

Kudos to the gutsy Ms. Smith for a job well done.

  1. I am sure the ACLU will take up his cause. After all, being forced at gunpoint to call the cops on yourself is as torturous for a thug as a pair of women’s panties on the head is to a Muslim.


  2. Well this is just a prime example of why the Second Amendment must be repealed. Here we have this old lady who obviously is incapable of clear thinking pointing a terrible weapon at this poor young man who completely by accident entered the wrong house. She could have shot this poor boy for heavens sake. That is so wrong!

    Hey Nick – my buddy used to fly heavies for World Airways for many years – did the Haj trip more times than he can remember. Those Muslims are completely different animals when they’re away from the imams. Drinking booze, loose women, all sorts of kinkiness. Those prisoners probably liked the panties on their heads – especially if they were black and lacy.
