Protect Yourself, No One Else is Guaranteed to Be There When You Need Them

Thieves impersonating evangelicals prompt woman, 70, to teach gun safety
Sylvia Hall had never used her handgun for protection until the morning four strange men appeared at her doorstep impersonating evangelicals.

"We want to read the Bible to you," they said when she answered the door.

Hall said no. They insisted, and one of them began to push on the screen door and force himself in.

That's when Hall pulled out her Smith & Wesson, which scared them off.

That day two years ago was when Hall, who lives in Centerfield, began a mission to teach women in Oldham and surrounding counties to protect themselves using handguns.

"Women shouldn't be afraid in their own homes," Hall said. "They ought to be able to protect themselves."
Everyone ought to be able to protect themselves, especially in their own homes. Shame on those states that make it difficult or impossible.
