When a would-be robber pulled a knife on the owner of a
Harlem, Ga., convenience store, she responded by pulling out a
.38-cal. revolver. Eunice Jernigan says she's been keeping a gun at
her store for 20 years, ever since she was first threatened with a
knife. On March 14, two young men entered her store, picked up
several items and brought them to the counter. One man turned away
from Jernigan and asked the other for some money to purchase the
items. When he turned back toward her, the man laid a knife on the
counter. "He had his hand on it and he said, 'Give me the money out
of the register.' I backed up ... and got my gun ... I pointed it
straight at him." Jernigan said she then told him she would blow his
brains out, "and out the door they went."
