Sixty nine year-old Ethel Jones poses with her .38 caliber snubnose revolver behind the glass door window she shattered when she fired three shots at a burglar who broke into her house Monday, August 30, 2010 in Decatur. An 18-year-old suspect was taken to Huntsville Hospital with a gunshot to the abdomen.

I asked her to be behind the broken glass with her revolver, and she stood there aiming that pistol straight at me!

- Excuse me, Mrs. Jones, is the gun loaded?

- Of course, what's it good for if it's not loaded?

- Ahem... Is the safe on?

- Oh, don't worry. Like I say, guns don't shoot if you don't pull the trigger.

- Well, in that case, could you please point at some other place? You can hold it like James Bond if you want...

OH. MY. GOD! i love the commentary... i would've asked her to point it somewhere else too! i despise guns..... but i guess, this saved her from being burglarized? i love the portrait... with just one of her eyes framed by the broken glass. good shot jero.
