Billy Franks awoke from a deep sleep to find two armed men demanding
cash and threatening to beat his 67-year-old wife, Sherry, with a
baseball bat. The intruders then made good on their threat, bruising
Sherry's arm and breaking Billy's arm in two places. That's when
Sherry remembered the .22-cal. revolver her 70-year-old husband kept
tucked under his pillow. "When she picked up the gun and pointed it
[at the would-be robbers], they panicked and started running," Billy
said. Sheriff's Department Captain Joe Young lauded the couple's
handling of the situation. "People try to prey on senior citizens
because they think they're easier to mess with, but this couple
showed that's not always true," he said, adding, "I think it's a
good idea for people to keep a handgun in their homes, just in case
something like this happens."
