Here is another defensive gun use for the books that will probably get ignored by the main stream media. No shots were fired, and no one was hurt. And this elderly couple is safe and sound because they were armed.
A knife-toting robber thought he had the upper hand when he tried to rob an elderly couple. The husband was a 92-year-old World War II vet and the wife was an 89-year-old woman who was ready to defend her life and home.
Robert Kelly Jr., age 25, was the crook who came to the couple’s door and asked to use the phone. He said he had been accepted to college, and the couple let him in because they knew him from some odd jobs he had done around neighborhood.
But that’s when Kelly pulled out a knife and attempted to rob the couple. He thought it would be easy-pickins, but when Ruby Mathis came out of the bedroom with a gun in her hands, the fight became a bit unfair for the robber.
“He ran out the door. I was getting up to get a club and then I was going to work him over real good,” Hugh Mathis said.
