Mother of Three Fired for Protecting Herself from Armed Robber

Jennifer Wertz used to work at the Circle K gas station in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A robber armed with a firearm threatened to shoot Jennifer. She pulled a revolver from her pocket, cocked it and fired, striking 23-year-old Ferron Mendez in the chest. This ended his attack.

Jennifer told FOX6:

I grabbed my gun from my pocket, I cocked it, and I shot. I’m sick and tired of being a sitting duck… Robberies have been going on like this for the past few weeks. They [her employer] have done nothing to protect me. And I felt the need to protect myself.

Circle K suspended her for two weeks for saving her own life and then fired her. They have a policy that states no employees may carry firearms for self-protection. She had told her employer that they needed to do something to help protect her as robberies have escalated in her area.

Jennifer’s mother set up a GoFundMe page for $20,000 to help her daughter support her family while she recovers from the trauma of this attempted robbery. Well, a LOT of people support her decision to carry a firearm. As of this writing, the donations are $71,690 in just 8 days!

So a good gal with a gun stopped the perp and saved her own life.

The perp is expected to live, so let’s pray no lawyer is greedy enough to take on the perp with a frivolous lawsuit.
