Several things don't add up about this story. Why would the attackers allow her to crawl across the floor to her purse when one of them had been holding it and could have ransacked it at that time? If I had been that attacker, I would have searched the purse myself, not allowed the owner to do that.
Her boyfriend didn't hear her scream prior to shots being fired?!? At what point did he become involved? The account isn't clear on that. First it says he became involved when he heard the shots, but then it says that she shot the attacker that had him in a headlock, so he had to be involved prior to shots being fired.
She was calm?!? After killing one attacker and wounding another?!? She recalls hearing her shots?!? She must be an exceptional woman!! Most people would be nearly hysterical and incoherent after such an experience; they do not remember hearing their gunshots or how many they fired. Must be one hell of a shot if she can shoot with her gun still concealed in her purse and hit her attacker in the middle of his torso. I'm sorry, for me there are too many inconsistencies in this story to beleive this actually happened. It may have or it may not have, all sources notwithstanding. I think that too many times we are too willing to believe this kind of heroism simply because we want to, because it puts gun owners in a positive light. Don't get me wrong, I am a gun owner and I carry and I want gun owners seen in a positive light as much as anyone else. But I also want the truth, and this story simply doesn't ring true to me. JMO.
