911 tells woman to put gun down during home invasion (Video)

An 80-year-old Florida woman grabbed her gun and called 911 during a home invasion. While the burglars were breaking a window to her residence, the police dispatcher told her to “put the gun down.” Huh?

As N.J. Logan was upstairs resting from recent hip replacement surgery in her Holmes Beach, Fla. home, she heard a racket coming from the main level, according to MyFoxTampaBay:

I kept hearing a commotion, like there were people walking around down there. It is a little frightening. You know that you don’t have the security that you thought you had.

Logan was all alone — her husband was playing bridge at a friend’s house. That’s when she took matters into her own hands. She grabbed her gun and dialed the police emergency number as she headed downstairs.

“Once I realized it wasn’t my husband, you have no idea how fast you can go,” she said.

That’s when the dispatcher gave her the bum advice.

“When I called 911 she kept saying put the gun down, put the gun down, and I said I’ll put the gun down when I see the police,” Logan told the station.

“I believe in guns inside your house,” she added. I don’t think anybody has the right to break into your private domain.”
