  • Armed Grandma makes burglar call 911

    LAKE LYNN, Pa. -- An 85-year-old great-grandmother from Lake Lynn, Fayette County kept an alleged burglar at bay using a .22-caliber pistol.

    According to police, a 17-year-old suspect was attempting to burglarize Leda Smith overnight.

    That's when Smith grabbed her gun and told the teen that she would shoot him if he moved, police said.

    "I had the gun on him before he turned around and said, 'you've had it,' " Smith told Channel 11-News.

    According to police, Smith ordered the boy to dial 911 and then gave him some advice.

    "Dial 911 and don't attempt to throw the phone at me, or do anything bad or i'll just shoot you," Smith said.

    When police arrived, they took the teen into custody.

    Charges have been filed against the boy and an alleged accomplice.

    Police: "Well, it would be alot easier for us. The targets at the shooting range don't run."

      That's great, he thought he had an easy mark with an old lady. She is fortunate that it went in her favor, with the increasing amount of incidents involving the elderly getting beat up by scumbags.

      It's better to be hated for what you are, then to be loved for what you are not.

          I can't believe they let old women own guns! That is just unLiberal like!

          She should have just laid down, given up, and allowed him to rape and kill her! She could have hurt that poor young victim of society!

          Death to any old woman who believes in standing up for themselves!!!

          That's what the government is for!!!

            HA! Feminists have been arguing for generations that women can and should stand up for themselves. That's why we encourage women to take self-defense classes, to leave violent relationships and help the system prosecute their abusers, to stand up against rapists so they can be prosecuted and brought to justice, to educate and train themselves for employment that will enable them to be self-reliant so they don't have to stay in abusive relationships in order to survive economically...a whole long list of other means of standing up for oneself.

            And I have no problem with granny using a gun in this situation. More power to her!

            That's what the government is for!!!
            Well, granny here still needs the government. She needs the government to provide the emergency communications system (911), to answer the 911 call, to arrest these burglars, to prosecute them, and to put them in jail.

            That's what government is for.

              I have this nagging feeling that ChopperCopper was just being facetious...

                Eh, she had him at gunpoint so I don't think she needed the government. She was just being nice. If there was no 911 I'm sure all she would have needed would be a bullet and some paper towels.

                Man, I love this story.

                  Well, in that case, unless she intended to bury the two in her back yard (at 85 she would have needed help with that), she would still have needed someone to get the body, do an autopsy, and to conduct an investigation to determine whether or not her story was true. And then someone to bury the kids.

                  Not to mention that she also would have needed some psych care to deal with her PTSD for having killed two kids, regardless of what their intent toward her was, especially since it wasn't murder.

                              Very few that use deadly force actually get PTSD.....it is FAR less common than the hand wringing media likes to claim.....

                              And from her statements on the incident, Grandma doesnt sound like much of a sheep..... That would have been a VERY short investigation.....
