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.
