Actress Kelly McGillis learns the importance of the 2nd Amendment. Originally anti-gun, she recently applied for a concealed carry permit.
She has had that compelling event in life that causes one to pause and rethink a fundamental position in her worldview. She has learned law enforcement (govt) is not the “First Responder” in a life crisis or emergency. She has learned that SHE is the “first responder” to protect herself. She was taught the importance of the 2nd Amendment.
She has learned that govt often is NOT the daddy that can save you. Hopefully, this will turn her toward the father of all, our Creator God above.
Local TV reports and People reported the Henderson County sheriff’s office arrested and charged a 38-year-old woman, Laurence Marie Dorn, with second-degree burglary, misdemeanor larceny, misdemeanor stalking, assault and battery and interfering with emergency communication. She is being held in the Henderson County Jail under a $60,000 bond. There was no phone listing for her.
McGillis writes that she was left scratched and bruised but is otherwise OK. She says she got a concealed-carry gun permit to protect herself after the incident.
“They rushed me through the conceal and carry course so I am armed and ready,” she posted Thursday. “The Henderson County Sheriff’s department has been absolutely the greatest. Here’s my first target practice. I only missed five from the center out of thirty rounds. All hit the target.”
She expressed concern for a little girl who was with the woman.
“Mental illness takes many hostages. I don’t know her name…but I would like to asked that you pray for her and her mother,” McGillis wrote.
Later, she also posted a long essay on the reasons, including being the victim of other crimes, that she got a concealed-carry permit despite advice not to.
“For those of you on my feed that are telling me that getting a cc permit is not the best choice for me to make, well let me fill you in on a few things that have lead me to this decision. Which by the way, I have struggled over for a long long time. Not being pro gun fanatic. When I was 12 I was gang raped by three men.”
The National Rifle Association cheered her on its Facebook page.
Home invasions always make this kind of attack personal. What she needs is a security system. Especially since it sounds like her home is rather isolated. A security system would call the police and alert the homeowner to anyone going into the house who didn’t have the alarm codes such as family members. I’m glad she’s OK.
Kelly, every person has the right NOT to be harmed by someone else! It is your right and responsibility to have the means to protect yourself no matter what!!!
So disregard what people say! Remember seconds count when the police are minutes away!
