The Statists that run New Jersey have a seething hatred for the right of self-defense, so it is almost miraculous that two thugs found an armed target. Bob owens explains
Two thugs in Newark failed miserably in their target selection game Thursday night, singling out a 43-year-old woman who retired from the NYPD nine months ago, and who happened to be armed.
A woman who retired from the New York Police Department nine months ago shot two city men when they attempted to rob her Thursday night, Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose said.
The 43-year-old woman, whose name was not disclosed, was getting into her car at Commerce Street and McCarter Highway around 9:30 p.m. when she was approached by the two men, who demanded money at gunpoint, Ambrose said.
The woman, who retired as a detective from the NYPD, fired her gun at the two men, who fled from the scene after being hit. The men, aged 23 and 27, were caught by police and taken to University Hospital for treatment of their wounds, which were not considered life-threatening.
They likely assumed the woman was disarmed, and easy pickings, since New Jersey restricts the right to keep and bear arms so stringently. Do not expect the Statists that run Jersey to learn from this story. To them disarmed victims are preferable to the basic human right of self-defense
