On May 16th, shortly before 5 am, Betty Collins was disturbed at home by someone trying to break into her home In Toledo, Ohio. A loud scream put the would-be robber in his place – especially when she backed up that scream with a loaded .357 revolver.
She told ABC News:
I screamed as loud as I could, ‘get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.’ And he stayed at the door. I’m like, ‘Get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.’ He didn’t move, so I opened the door and there he was standing 5 inches from the barrel of a loaded .357.
I said, ‘Get on the ground.’ and he got on his knees. I said, ‘no, put your face in the dirt and you’re gonna stay there.
The police came and arrested the perp and took him to jail.
Betty made good use of the Second Amendment in protecting herself from this criminal. After all, she is finishing her Doctorate in Criminal Justice at the University of Toledo!
