Please forgive the link source 'Don't mess with the marching band girls' - Crime & courts- msnbc.com Saw this story on the morning news (HLN network morning show). Good for her. What was best was in her interview she said (paraphrased), "I had my baton; I had a weapon so I used it. I didn't want to get raped or kidnapped". That girl got it right! She had the right mindset and attitude to use what she had to defend herself. Good for her. I see a perfect future firearm owner Someone teach her how to shoot!
