Earlier this week at a gas station in Glendale, Arizona a woman was held up in an armed robbery attempt. The man – identified as 27-year-old Frank Taylor – reportedly pointed a gun straight at his victim’s head.
Instead of being a victim, 23-year-old Carole Miracle reached for her own handgun from her hip holster and shot the guy once. Miracle was obviously shaken following the incident, and she left the scene.
When the fire department had shown up on at the gas station on a completely unrelated matter, they found Taylor with a gunshot wound. Taylor was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Miracle later called the police from her home and told them that she was the one who shot Taylor, and it was because he was trying to rob her at gunpoint.
Police interviewed witnesses, and they confirmed with police that Taylor indeed tried to rob Miracle, and that she shot back in self-defense.
It hasn’t yet been determined whether Miracle will face charges, but as it looks now, it seems to be a clear-cut self-defense case.
If liberals were truly pro-women, they’d look at this case and see the importance of private gun ownership, especially among women. But they’d be more in favor of taking the gun away from her, and they’d quote some statistic showing that gun-carrying women are more likely to be shot with their own gun in encounters like this. They’d use that statistic as reason that women need to be unarmed. Never mind the fact that if Miracle were disarmed, she would have been completely defenseless, and she would have been far more likely to be killed.
Thankfully, she was armed, and she used her gun in self-defense. She’s still alive, and the armed robber is dead. Leave it to liberals to make that all sound like a bad thing.
