At 6:30 in the morning, a woman was walking from her car to her
office when she noticed a car on the lot with two people inside. A
man got out of the car and started toward her, his hands in his
pockets. The woman realized she would not be able to reach the
office door before the man reached her. Believing she was in
imminent danger, the married mother of two opened her purse and drew
her gun. The man reacted immediately, turning and walking back to
the car, which had pulled up alongside him. The man got into the car
and it sped off. Thinking quickly, the woman called police on her
cell phone and provided a detailed description of the car and the
couple, who were picked up within minutes of the attempted robbery.
A 9mm handgun was found in the couple's car and they were charged
with attempted armed robbery. Farmington Hills, Michigan, Police
Chief William Dwyer, who had not been a proponent of the state's
recently enacted concealed carry law, said the situation had changed
his view. "She took the appropriate action," Dwyer said, "and
probably saved her life."
