Actress Answers Attack By Getting Carry Permit

posted on June 27, 2016

Actress Kelly McGillis of “Top Gun” fame wasted no time in taking matters into her own hands after being attacked recently in her Hendersonville, N.C., home.

McGillis returned home to find a screaming woman in her home, who attacked her when she ran outside to call 911. She fought off the woman, but—like many survivors of violent crime—decided there had to be a better way to protect herself going forward. She quickly applied for a concealed-carry permit to protect herself should she ever be attacked again.

“They rushed me through the conceal and carry course, so I am armed and ready,” McGillis posted Thursday on Facebook. “The Henderson County Sheriff's Department has been absolutely the greatest. Here's my first target practice. I only missed five from the center out of thirty rounds. All hit the target.”

That kind of shooting puts a new meaning to the phrase “top gun.”
