Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- As gun permit requests in Newtown, Connecticut skyrocket, one “soon-to-be gun-toting grandma” is worried about the consequences of gun control.
The New York Daily News reports 66-year old Nancy Ellis is concerned that her right to keep and bear arms may be in jeopardy: “The fact that they were reeling in and squeezing more laws made me think, ‘You know what? I want my gun permit. I want to exercise my right.'”
As Breitbart News has pointed out, gun control hurts women especially. And Ellis says “she wants a gun to protect herself.”
Ellis asked what she's supposed to do if unarmed and faced with an intruder?
“What am I going to do? Throw water at him? Get a knife? Go get a pair of scissors? When he has a gun potentially?”
Although Piers Morgan does not “want to see all the women in America armed with guns,” Ellis is getting one because she refuses to be a victim.
