OREGON - A 65 year old Oregon woman has formed a "Glock Block" where residents protect themselves and their neighbors rather than calling 911 adn waiting for the police. The grandmother of three said she decided it was time to take matters into her own hands when a thief broke into her home after allegedly stealing a bronze statue in her backyard earlier in the day.
“It just made my blood run cold because our grandkids are playing here a lot, and one of them could have been snatched just as easily as the statue,” Coy Tolonen said.
Now the breast cancer survivor has taken a class and joined-up with other neighbors with concealed carry permits to try to keep their neighborhood safe. The neighbors have put-up fliers in their windows with their stated motto: “This is a Glock Block, We don’t call 911.”
“These guys need to know if you’re going to pick on a little old lady, then lots of the ladies I know are packing [guns]. They’re sweet ladies but if it’s their life, I’m sorry you’re going to lose yours,” Tolonen said.
