Oklahoma Senior Citizen Responds To Professor Who Wants Her To Give Up Her Gun

posted on November 3, 2016

A 78-year-old Oklahoma City lady who has been shooting for more than a half century says she’s not about to surrender her right to defend herself to those who say she can’t be trusted because of her age, KOCO reports

Interviewed at a local shooting range where she was practicing with her Glock—and scoring plenty of Xs on her target—Rosalie Ussery was asked about a professor, Dr. Shannon Frattaroli of the Johns Hopkins [Michael] Bloomberg School of Public Health, who said that depression, frailty, dementia and grandchildren all counsel against seniors being allowed to own firearms. 

“If I said, ‘Rosalie, you’re 78. Time to take the gun away.’ What do you tell me?” asked the reporter. To which Rosalie Ussery politely replied, “I can’t think of the farthest place I would tell you to go.” We toast Rosalie’s health and heart and say, more power to her!
