She Had a Gun. It Wasn't Enough.

86-year-old Linnie Mae Ward followed the old rule that in a gunfight, the first rule is to have a gun. She also had the willingness to use it, and tried, when a man entered her bedroom and announced his intention to rob her.

The man rushed her as she attempted to bring her rifle to bear and overpowered her, then strangled her.

It's possible that he only wanted money, and didn't intend to kill her. Maybe she should have submitted, hoping for the best. She had the heart of a warrior, though, in her aged body, and though the spirit was willing, the flesh was weak, and she was unable to follow through on her effort to defend her home and her life.

God rest her soul.
