At a local convenience store and watering hole, a mother, holding her child, got a gun shoved in her face.
She wasn’t having any of it.
In Normandy, France, a mother’s peaceful night was shattered by an armed robber who stormed into the store and demanded her goods. He also demanded all the money from the register and all the valuables in the store.
First things first: The mom found a safe place to drop off her baby and then faced the intruder. Apparently reacting purely on instinct, she went on the offensive.
She took his bag as if she intended to fill it. Instead she used it to swat him and swat away the gun. Before that, even, she appeared to scold him soundly. Then she began to whip him heavily, and he went on the retreat.
The guy is no killer. His gun went off twice in the store, but was reportedly loaded with blanks. No one was hurt.
He made his escape, and the police were called — and that’s when it got even better.
Apparently, the thief mustered up the courage to try again, and comes back to the store, where he was immediately arrested and charged with attempted robbery.
Although the gun was only loaded with blanks, the mother’s refusal in the face of aggression is unbelievable.
One only wonders how it would have happened if she had been responsibly-armed. Fortunately, in the United States, we have that freedom here.
