911 Operator Urges an 80-Year-Old Woman to Do the ‘Unthinkable’ During a Home Invasion


The most important thing a homeowner needs to have is a gun, because if someone breaks in, police can’t be there instantaneously to protect you. NJ Logan, an eighty-year-old grandmother, found herself in the horrible situation of what to do during a home invasion — wisely, she got her gun so she could defend herself if necessary, only to be told by the 911 dispatcher to put the gun down!

Eighty-year-old NJ Logan was recuperating from hip replacement surgery when she heard some unsettling noise coming from outside of her home. At first she thought it might have been her husband, but when she realized it wasn’t him but a stranger attempting a break-in, Logan’s gut reaction was to go for her firearm then call authorities.

But when Logan dailed 911, the police dispatcher urged Logan to do the “unthinkable” and told her to, “put the gun down.”

The Daily Mail reports on Logan’s reaction:

I said I’ll put the gun down when I see the police,’ Logan told the dispatcher.

Was this dispatcher insane?! Look, police officers are wonderful, and most people know and appreciate that they will give up their lives in order to protect ours. But cops can’t be everywhere at once, and we cannot rely solely on them to protect ourselves. Sure, Logan could have put the gun down, and she could have died because of it — I wonder if the dispatcher would have seen that as a preferable outcome.
