Thug Tries to Kidnap Missouri Granny, But She’s Got a DEADLY Surprise For Him

By

Liberals like to wax hysterical about all the supposed reasons private American citizens should NOT carry guns, especially concealed guns. But they conveniently ignore all the real-world examples demonstrating precisely why the Second Amendment exists.

Yet another such example comes to us from Missouri, where an innocent grandmother of 11 would likely have lost her life, if not for the fact that she was packing.

From WQAD:

“The grace of God is what saved me, and the sense to have calm, and have my weapon, ” said Diane McIntire, of Missouri.

McIntire says she pulled up in the parking lot of Southpark Mall in Moline last Sunday to buy vitamins, when a man who appeared to be waiting for a bus, suddenly appeared with a knife at the driver’s side door.

“It was a large butcher knife, I did not even see it at first, that’s how quickly he was in my space. I kicked him in his chest, pushed him back, I felt the knife cut right below my elbow,” said McIntire, a former Quad Citian who was visiting family over the weekend.

McIntire would need 24 stitches to close the wound.

She says the man, identified by police as 61-year-old Floyd May, forced her to drive her truck down Old Route 2, and during the 20 minute trip, threw her cellphone out the car window.

She said at one point he grabbed an old shirt from the back of her truck, and tied it around her bleeding arm.

“He apologized for the cut in my arm,” she said.

“He also said I know you can identify me. I know it’s kidnapping.”

What he didn’t know, is that she had a concealed carry permit. And, a Glock 380 handgun in the console of her truck.

When May told her to pull into a gravel lot in rural Port Byron, she knew she had to make her move.

“I knew I would live or die right there. He did tell me in the drive, if the police come up behind us, that we were both going to die that day,” she said.

So, when May became distracted, she went for it.


As the kidnapper fumbled with his knife, McIntire grabbed her gun, aimed it at the perp and told him to run. And he did.

Now, imagine what would have happened had McIntire not been armed? Or, if she’d had a gun, but wasn’t allowed to conceal it?

These are the things liberals are trying to take away from us.

What they won’t admit is that doing so will result in more, not less bloodshed. It almost certainly would have resulted in Diane McIntire’s blood being shed.
