Left for dead in a 1994 robbery and shooting in which she
was seriously wounded and her 21-year-old godson paralyzed,
Richmond, Virginia, resident Dorothy Newton understood the cost she
and her niece might be forced to pay. They had already handed the
four robbers, one armed with a pistol, all of their valuables and
still the crooks wanted more. With nothing else to give, Newton
pulled a .38 from the bottom of her purse and began firing, wounding
two of the suspects and chasing all of them away. The four
attackers were all taken into custody. Later newspaper accounts
noted that a grand jury refused to indict the woman, even though she
did not have a carry permit for the revolver, which she had borrowed
from a friend.
