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.”
