NRA Women The Armed Citizen Drawing A Pistol

A woman was walking down the street when a strange man grabbed her and attempted to pull her pants down. She physically resisted him, but he continued to try to pull her into the nearby woods. She was able to draw her firearm and shoot at her attacker, causing him to run away. When police later arrested him, the suspect confessed to multiple sex offenses over a two-month span including groping, exposing himself, and asking for sex from strangers. He also forced his way into two women’s homes in an attempt to rape them. (wcnc.com, Rock Hill, S.C., 10/12/21)
