Houston – LA MARQUE – A 56-year-old woman fended off an armed attacker in a Walmart parking lot in La Marque, pulled a pistol and put at least one hole in the assailant’s fleeing vehicle

Citizens who are armed are the BEST deterrent to criminal activity and the life that you might save is your own.

Criminals don’t care about laws regarding weapons.  They will carry regardless.  The only one that the LAW disarms is the legitimate citizen.
