87-Year-Old Shoots Man Attacking Pregnant Woman

87-Year-Old Shoots Man Attacking Pregnant Woman

One of the old liberal snide comments about male gun owners is, "They must be compensating for something." The best response I've seen for that is the women's T-shirt in favor of owning assault rifles, because, "I'm compensating for being smaller and weaker than most male attackers."

Recently in Roswell, N.M., a 24-year-old pregnant female resident of an apartment building was doing laundry with her 3-year-old daughter when a male neighbor, 49-year-old Larrell Stell, started talking to her and took off her shirt, according to KRQE. He then made sexual advances toward her; when she rebuffed him, he got upset and pushed her down. She then grabbed her child and ran to her landlord's house next door.


Stell attacked her at her landlord's house, pushed her down and punched her face repeatedly. The landlord tried to break up the assault, but was not able to — perhaps because he is 87 years old. So the landlord went and got his handgun, and when Stell continued to assault the woman, the landlord shot him in the torso. Stell then tried to attack the landlord, so he shot him again.



Check out the video from KRQE.com.


For some reason it appears that the police weren't called to the scene, as Stell continued to pace around the property for an hour, even after being shot twice. If the cops didn't come on their own after reports of gun shots and shouting, it sounds like this is a neighborhood where you need a gun to protect yourself.


Stell then turned off the woman's electricity — which is admittedly weird — and then drove himself to the hospital. It appears the police were called to the hospital by the medical staff, and then investigated the incident. Stell, if you can believe it, was uncooperative.

"From the information that we've been given, we think it sounds fortunate that the landlord was armed in this case," said Lt. Britt Snyder of the Chaves County (N.M.) Sheriff's Department. "He certainly would have been no match for a man that's 40 years younger than him."

Gee, ya think? The guy was shot twice and still walked around for an hour before driving himself to the hospital. Beating up a pregnant woman and senior citizen is a lot easier when one of them doesn't have a gun, apparently.

"Having taken action with a handgun may have prevented a possible murder, maybe the murder of both of them," Snyder said. "We don't know." At this point, Snyder said, it appears the landlord will not be facing charges.
