"Also, many surrounding cities make it way too easy to get a gun."
Then why are those surrounding cities safer?

I wonder whether she "feels" as likely to be the victim of an armed robbery while hanging out with you, while you are armed, in a city park in Alexandria, Virginia, you know, where it is "way too easy to get - and carry - a gun?

That would have been my only question.

I wonder how the conversation would have went at that point?

Maybe this will be a step on the trip to becoming pro-gun. They say conservatives are only liberals who have been mugged.

(NY) Woman in wheelchair on way to gun practice shoots mugger

NEW YORK (AP) -- Margaret Johnson might have looked like an easy target.

But when a mugger tried to grab a chain off her neck Friday, the wheelchair-bound 56-year-old pulled out her licensed .357 pistol and shot him, police said.

Johnson said she was in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood on her way to a shooting range when the man, identified by police as 45-year-old Deron Johnson, came up from behind and went for the chain.

"There's not much to it," she said in a brief interview. "Somebody tried to mug me, and I shot him."

Deron Johnson was taken to Harlem Hospital with a single bullet wound in the elbow, police said. He faces a robbery charge, said Lt. John Grimpel, a police spokesman.

Margaret Johnson, who lives in Harlem, has a permit for the weapon and does not face charges, Grimpel said. She also was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and later released.

Score another one for the good guys.
