Gun control, how about a purse?
Forget about any 2nd Amendment rights to self defense, just carry a purse.
An ex-con was trying to carjack a woman in Brooklyn and in the process fired a .40 caliber gun point plank at her, but her life was spared because her purse took the brunt of the blast.
Victor Walker, 52, approached the 39-year-old woman as she loaded luggage into her Jeep Cherokee on Patchen Ave. near Van Buren St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 26th 2017.
Accoring to the New York Daily News, he pulled a .40-caliber pistol and demanded her car keys but she instead put up a fight. The two struggled, Walker fired off a shot at point-blank range. The shot failed to stop her, so Walker pistol-whipped the woman causing a deep cut to her head. Walker escaped the scene in the victim's Jeep but police found him later and arrested him on charges of attempted murder and robbery and assault. The woman was taken to a local hospital for tratment.
The multiple charges will give his lawyer, most likely taxpayer paid, an opportunity to plead down the charges. This is not the first time Victor got his ass in trouble. According to the New York Police, on Tuesday, Nov. 15th 2011, Walker is suspected of shooting Artis Arthur, 43, three times in the back with a .40-caliber handgun. Prosecutors declined to bring charges against suspect Victor Walker, 47, who turned himself over to cops. A spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney declined to comment.
