Flashers beware: Women aren’t taking it anymore, and at least a few are willing to go Wild West over the inconvenience of being shown your naughty bits.
According to NBC News, a woman in Washington state pulled a gun on a flasher this week in a unique and deadly version of “show me yours and I’ll show you mine.” As he unveiled himself to the woman, he was met with her Ruger .380, pointing right at him.
“I put the magazine in my gun. I cocked it,” The woman told Daily News. “I said, ‘You need to leave or I’ll shoot you. I’m going to blow your brains out.’”
“Oh, [expletive]!” the man declared, before running away.
The woman, unnamed as a victim of a sex crime, said that she has never brought her gun with her to the lake where she was confronted. Because it was foggy and dark, she made a last minute call to retrieve it before going out. “I just had a feeling,” she said.
What’s more, this guy was apparently a little more disturbed than the prankster-variety of casual flashers. She said that the man “aggressively” sat down next to her on the bench she was occupying with her 6-year-old son, began performing a sex act, and told her she should watch him.
“Miss, miss,” he said, according to the woman. “Could you watch this? You need to watch this,” he said as he fumbled with his belt buckle.
When asked how her son reacted to the scene, the woman said: “I had him turn and face toward me. I stayed calm. I didn’t raise my voice. I don’t think he knew what was going on.”
Not to take a political stance or anything, but this makes a pretty good case for conceal and carry. Nothing dissuades a pervert like a loaded gun.
What do you think? Would you pull a gun on a flasher?
