Woman Needed More Than Ten Rounds to Protect Herself

While some gun-controllers insist that no one needs more than ten rounds, this woman fired thirteen shots to defend herself.

Next time you hear someone claim that no one needs more than ten rounds to protect themselves, direct them to this story about a woman who called herself “C.C.” for the news channel: “Detroit woman shoots at would-be carjackers.”

She took a wrong turn at Alma and Garnet avenues on her way to the hairdresser’s. While making a u-turn three men approached her car and tried to take it. They went as far opening to the door and shooting at her. There are two bullet holes.

However, the bold thieves learned they were messing with the wrong Detroiter.

“When I see him with the gun as he approached me to take the car, I lifted my gun up on the door and I began to shoot,” said C.C. “So when he shot I was shooting back.”

She keeps her gun — .357 caliber Sig Sauer G2 — in the side door of her vehicle. She has a concealed carry permit. It’s her weapon of choice which she has trained with at area ranges. It holds 13 hollow point rounds. She emptied the clip at the thieves who scurried away near some abandoned homes.

So what would have happened if this woman had been restricted to ten rounds? Some liberals insist that no one needs more than ten rounds. Allegedly there is no legitimate purpose for carrying a firearm with a magazine that holds more than ten rounds.

Granted, I can’t prove from what is said in the story that ten rounds might not have been enough to make them flee. But it is obviously easily imaginable that a gun-owner might need more than ten rounds to deal with armed criminals.

This woman, “C.C.” speaks like a real American hero!

“All the residents of the city need to come together and take back this city from the thugs and the criminals that have taken over this city, and if you live in fear you’ll never bring this city back,” she said.

C.C. is particularly offended at the notion Detroiters can’t safely buy gasoline at night. Police Chief James Craig, who has applauded citizens for protecting themselves with legal firearms, called getting gas at night a bad idea.

“You should be able to go anytime to get gas. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Why can’t we act like it?” said C.C.

Great question! Why can’t we act like we belong in the land of the free and the home of the brave?
