This grandma carried for a reason, to protect herself and that is just what she did! According to NEWS4SA, a Houston food truck owner shot a man in self-defense. She said an armed man tried to rob her business Tuesday, but she fired first. According to the article, Derick Howard, who is one of the owners, was on his way to help in mother and uncle who was working at the food truck. He tells New4SA, that his mom did keep a gun on her just in case something like this happened. All of this was over only $40.

According to the Police, a 23-year-old got out of his car, opened the window to the food truck and put his gun inside, and fired but his gun jammed.  That gave the woman just enough time to grab her gun and shoot the robber before he could harm anyone in the food truck.  “Thank God. Because she's a godly woman, that's why the gun jammed. Because God jammed it, because when she opened that window, he could have shot her, but it jammed,” said a family member, Jacqueline Mitchell. Derrick Howard's mom was taken to the hospital for having a panic attack after the ordeal and she will be ok. The man attempting to rob the food truck was killed by the shot.
