A Houston, Texas woman is still alive after defending herself against five male attackers. She did so with a luxury that presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke does not want her to have: a gun.
Around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Lachelle Hudgins pulled in at her house and parked her vehicle, with the driver's side window partially open. Before she could even get out of the vehicle, she was ambushed by a group of men. As two of them attempted to reach through her window for her purse, Hudgins reached into her bag and pulled out her firearm.
"I couldn't do anything except scream. At one point, they told me to stop screaming, and he reached his hand inside my car," Hudgins said. At that point she fired two shots, resulting in the thugs fleeing.
“It was all I had in my gun. I shot until I couldn’t shoot anymore,” Hudgins added, "I saved my life."
A woman shot and wounded a suspected robber who reached for her purse, police say.
A short time later, authorities received a call about a man found shot on the other side of the complex.
The suspect underwent surgery. He's expected to face aggravated robbery charges.
She also told ABC13 News that she still can't believe she was able to walk away from the situation unharmed. Perhaps the men only wanted her purse, but there is a good chance they meant her more harm than just to rob her. The situation could have easily turned into a more violent scenario, where physical harm or even murder could have occurred.
However, because Hudgins practiced her second Amendment right and carried a gun, she was able to protect herself. This is what Democrats do not want. People like Beto and former Vice President Joe Biden want to ban guns. That would only ensure that people like Hudgins would not have protection in a moment when self defense could be the only determining factor between life or death.
Gun rights are women’s rights.
