Your heartwarming Second Amendment story of the day. Sadly, she missed, but the criminal thug is in custody.
A 72-year-old grandmother took control of a scary situation when she was confronted by someone trying to break into the Orange County home she shares with her WWII-veteran husband.
A burglar hopped a fence late Saturday, prowled through the backyard and broke into the Coopers’ Stanton, Calif. home in the middle of the night. Not even a barking Rottweiler scared off the intruder.
Armed with a .357 Magnum revolver, Jan Cooper called 911. She was on the phone with a dispatcher when the intruder made it into her yard.
“Back up, you son of a b—-,” she yelled. “Back up! Get out of here! Get the hell out of here! Get your butt out! Now!”
Jan Cooper fired a single shot. It missed the intruder by just a few inches, deputies said.
“After I shot, there was rage that took hold,” Jan Cooper said. “My husband — he’d never heard me talk like that before.”
Brandon Perez, 31, was arrested in connection with the intrusion. Pictured below, Perez is currently on probation for burglary, authorities said.
Gee, a guy on probation still plying his trade? Imagine that.
