The Armed CitizenGut feelings paid off for a 65-year old New Hampshire woman who ended up shooting a man who tried to mug her. The unidentified grandmother said that she got a “funny feeling” when she pulled out of a gas station parking lot after a late night at work and noticed a dark sedan following her. As she walked from her car to her apartment, she said she saw a man getting out of that same car. With that, she reached into her purse and got her hand around her legally owned handgun. The suspected mugger accosted her, and when he went to grab her, she pulled out her gun and shot him. He was taken to a hospital and treated for the wound. The police are investigating the case.
