Woman Dies After Failing To Learn How to Fight With Her Handgun
By Bob Owens
Murder suspect Gary Yarborough surrenders to Raleigh SWAT (note the green aiming laser dot on his side). He should have already been in a bodybag, but his victim didn’t have the training she needed to stay alive.
One of the things that is most frustrating to me as a supporter of the right of armed self-defense is the mindset that obtaining a concealed carry permit (where required) and purchasing a handgun means that you’re prepared to defend your life.
That couldn’t be further from the truth.
A woman in Franklin, NC, apparently paid for that mistake with her life last night.
Tracy Williams had been stalked and previously kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend Garry Yarborough, and so she went out and obtained a handgun and a concealed carry permit because she was in fear of him. What she didn’t do was learn to fight with that handgun, and she died as a result.
“After their breakup, it turned very nasty,” he said. “He was threatening her to the point where she felt uncomfortable and she went and got a concealed carry permit. She was able to get one shot off, and then unfortunately the gun jammed.”
