Crazed Gun-Toting Vigilante Mom Threatens Ardent Suitor

Here’s a story you’ll never read on those screechy websites demanding guns be outlawed to protect The Children: Mother Carrying Gun Scares Away Alleged Stalker

The mother, who did not wish to be identified, said the man approached her 16-year-old daughter on Alhambra Circle near their home.

“She was walking her dog in the median right out in front of our house here, and a man approached her in a truck and tried to get her to come to the truck,” the woman said.

The teenager ran to nearby Coral Gables Elementary School, calling her mother and 911.

The mother confronted the man and showed him her 9-mm gun.

“It’s not until I showed him that I was armed and that I meant business to protect my daughter that he backed off,” she said.

Coral Gables police arrested Ramon del Risco in connection with the incident … The woman said she recommends a day at the shooting range for every parent.

Verily, the woman kicks ass. Note how she didn’t even have to fire the gun; its mere presence was enough to scare the guy off. Still, this won’t deter those who favor gun bans because “Guns are only good for putting holes in people.”

I hear that a lot living in the Northeast, where we like to consider ourselves more enlightened than folks down in Florida (which has its own Fark tag, and deservedly so.) However, had this incident happened in my area, the story you just read would’ve included a statement from the chief of police about how it’s fortunate nobody got hurt, but the mother still should’ve waited for the cops rather than use her gun to escalate the situation.

Then the editorials: Statistics show this 16-year-old is safer out walking her dog than being at home in a gun-owning household. Hopefully, the mother will rid her domicile of these dangerous weapons, and gets the counseling she needs to overcome the fearful paranoia that compels her to keep them around in the first place.

Shame on me. I’m making all this up, of course. Such things would never be written here, because we have so many strict laws making it difficult-if-not-impossible to legally carry a gun around that the story would instead talk about a woman arrested for third-degree threatening with a firearm.

And if her 16-year-old daughter can’t handle a guy like Ramon del Risco by herself, sans weapons … well, maybe she ought to work out.

That's because they're a bunch of lying weasels who know that they're wrong, and losing, and lie, but keep screwing with us anyway.

Now moose, that's not a very nice thing to say. Think about how your harsh words will make weasels feel. I mean, being compared to those kind of people. I think you owe an apology to all the weasels and their relatives out there.

Agreed. I apologize to all weasels for insulting them, and promise to go to rehab.

Finally you write something I agree with!
Well done you. You should also have mentioned that areas with higher legal gun ownership have lower crime rates. Here in New Haven the college students are easy pickings because the criminals know that nobody is armed. They simple walk up to a student and demand their wallets, iPods, laptops etc.
They do it with no fear because the idea of law abiding citizens carrying guns is so alien in CT. They would never try that in Texas, Arizona, etc...

Ha! That's what you might think. I live in Texas, just outside the Houston metropolitan area, and I can tell you that kind of crap happens everyday here - that and worse. 'Course, now and then a perp gets his ass shot off - which doesn't bother me a whole bunch.

I'll probably be in Houston at the end of July. Do I need to bring some extra hardware?

Extra? ;-) Probably no more than what you would need in any other large city. I'm not all that familiar with the concealed cary laws here, so you might want to check on whether you'd be legal to cary here. Although I should imagine you would be. Hope you enjoy your visit.

If you travel far enough to the north you won't hear that.

Maine ranks pretty high in gun ownership, doesn't have very restrictive gun laws, and has a crime rate well below the national average.
