APPEARS IN Gun Laws

Mirror, Los Angeles, CA

Friday, December 1, 1961

A policeman once gave Mrs. Hatsuyo Yasui what turned out to be very good advice indeed. He mentioned that if ever she should have to defend herself from a gunman, to shoot often so as not to give any opportunity for him to fire back, and to shoot low. When a shotgun-wielding 17-year-old entered her husband's Los Angeles liquor store and demanded money, Mrs. Yasui ran to the rear of the store, took a cal. .32 automatic pistol, and came out firing the gun in both hands. Of six shots fired, the holdup man was hit five times and was dead an hour later.
