Intruder Breaks Into Great-Grandma’s House, Instantly Wishes He Hadn’t

This is one great-granny you don’t want to mess with!

The vast majority of bad guys in America aren’t all that bright. After all, if they were, they’d apply all that time and talent they waste on criminal activity on getting a job and being a contributing member of society.

One particular villain recently learned that breaking into an old lady’s house is not a guaranteed easy score, in fact, it can be hazardous to your health.

A 70-year-old great-grandmother is alive and well today, thanks to her boldness and the right to bear arms after squaring off against an intruder in her home, wounding the man during the altercation.

Maxine Thompson, a mom to a Philadelphia police officer in addition to being a great-grandmother, was sleeping early Saturday morning when she awoke to hear what sounded like a banging noise coming from the outside of her Philadelphia home.

“First I thought I was dreaming, and then I looked out the window, outside,” Thompson told WTXF-TV, noting that she warned the intruder off at first. “I was still hearing the banging, banging, banging, so I yelled to whoever, ‘Who’s that on my door? Get off my door, get off my door.’”

The male intruder apparently refused to heed Thompson’s warnings and reportedly entered the home through a dining room window, which police said the suspect had broken to gain entry to the home.

“Next thing I know I could tell he was inside my house and he was running up the steps,” Thompson told KYW-TV.

Thompson grabbed her late mother’s handgun, which surprisingly, she’d never used before that moment, and popped off a round at the shooter.

“I shot at him. He turned around and he ran, and when he ran, I ran down the steps behind him and shot at him some more,” Thompson said. “‘Kill him before he kills me.’ That’s what was going through my mind.”

Thompson fired several rounds at the intruder at which point he bolted from the scene and ended up at a carwash where he called police and informed them he had been shot.

One of Thompson’s bullets grazed the suspect’s upper left arm. He was later charged with breaking and entering.

This sweet old lady might not be alive today if not for the protection afforded her by a gun, a right guaranteed to her by the Second Amendment.

If gun hating liberals have their way and get strict gun control measures passed, this poor woman will be the one who gets hurt by it. It’s folks like her who will be left defenseless against thugs like the one she encountered, who will be able to victimize her in whatever way they choose.

Thompson’s story is a perfect example of why the fight to preserve the Second Amendment is so important and is encouragement for gun rights activists to continue standing up for the fundamental right to protect one’s life, liberty, and property.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
