Gun-packing mom shocks flasher

LONGVIEW, Wash. — A flasher who began fondling himself in front of a mother and young son in a Longview park got quite a shock when the woman pulled out a handgun and told the half-naked man he had five seconds before she pulled the trigger.

The woman said the man cursed at her, frantically pulled up his pants and ran for his life. She called police and officers searched for the suspect, but he got away.

    I am glad this woman was prepared to defend herself and her child. Good for her.
    On a side note, I have a question to direct to the news editor. Why must there be so little accuracy in the way firearms are typically detailed in the news? For instance, this headline features a picture of a semi-automatic Walther PPS which only comes in 9mm and .40 S&W, the written text of the report says the woman carried a .38 which is strictly a revolver cartrige, while in the recorded video the woman describes herself pushing a magazine into place (into a semi-automatic), model and caliber unknown.

      NBC reports the handgun as a Ruger .380 Auto.

    I am just rewording one of the earliest replies, “Should have blown his GUN and his NUTS off. She didn’t have to pick just one!”
