Ohio woman credits concealed weapons permit with saving her life

September 3, 2014

An Ohio woman credit having a concealed weapons permit with saving her life, WBNS10 News reported August 29.

Dinah Burns of Lancaster was walking her dog Gracie Monday on a footpath near Sanderson Elementary School when two men came out of the woods. One of them was carrying a bat.
‘You’re coming with us,’ Dinah was told. While asking the two men what they wanted, Dinah reached into her pocket and pulled out her gun, slipping the safety off. The man with the bat raised his weapon over his head until he caught sight of her weapon.

Dinah told the men

‘I have this and I’m not afraid to use it.'”

The two men Dinah described as young and white ran off and police have been unable to capture them.

When she posted the incident to her Facebook page, most of her friends asked why Dinah didn’t shoot the two men.
Dinah told 10 News she was taught

“To get out of a situation, back out, get out of it as much as you can without having to discharge your firearm.”

Dinah and Gracie are unharmed, and Dinah says she’ll continue to carry her concealed weapon. Police agree Dinah handled herself well and acted according to her concealed weapons permit training.
