DETROIT – Her siblings now jokingly call her Rambo.
However, Paris Ainsworth easily could have been killed. Her attackers shot her four times, but she had eight bullets for them.
“If I wouldn’t have had my gun I would be dead today,” she said.
Paris Ainsworth has a faint scar and a strong memory of a mugger hitting her with a gun 10 years ago. Two years ago, she got a concealed weapons permit.
“This is ludicrous, the way that they are just robbing and trying to take stuff from people, and killing people,” she said.
She praises Detroit police for the help they gave that night, but she is convinced that law-abiding citizens need to protect themselves.
