There She Is!

Miss America 1944, of Waynesburg Kentucky has a talent that has not been performed in a beauty pageant. She is quite handy with a snubby revolver. Venus Ramey followed her barking dog to a storage building on her farm in south-central Kentucky last week. There she found several trespassers, where thieves had stolen farm equipment previously.

Caught red handed by the first red headed Miss America, one man told her that he would just leave. Miss America wasn't having any of that. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey later said. "I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it. If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be 6 feet under by now."

The 82 year old Miss America had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a .38 special snubby to ventilate the tires. A passing motorist then called 911.

Curtis Parrish of Ohio was charged with misdemeanor trespassing. Three other people were questioned but were not arrested. "I'm trying to live a quiet, peaceful life and stay out of trouble, and all it is, is one thing after another," Ramey said.

Quite a person. Read her bio in the link. She sounds like a fascinating individual, with some inclination to stand up for what she believes in.

Good for her, though I'm surprised a .38 was able to flatten a tire--handgun rounds usually bounce off tires.

What a beautiful example of American womanhood.

Venus lives in the next town over from me. This woman is a huge supporter of gun rights.(by her own words) Beleive it or not the article in our local paper reported with no bias.
When it is 3 against 1, a .38 is plenty of firepower to even the odds. 1 perp was arrested.
I can quote the article if anyone wants to hear it. (Interior Journal of Lincoln county)
