‘Put The Gun Down’: 911 Dispatcher Tells Woman to Put Down Her Only Form of Self-Defense

gunEditor’s Note: When 911 is telling you to put down your only form of self-defense, there is a problem. Thankfully this woman didn’t listen to the dispatcher and kept her gun in her hands.

It was broad daylight, just around 2:30 in the afternoon. NJ Logan was upstairs at her Holmes Beach home off 6th Avenue.

She was resting after hip replacement surgery when she heard a noise downstairs.

“I kept hearing a commotion, like there were people walking around down there,” she said.

She was alone. Her husband was out playing Bridge.

“It is a little frightening. You know that you don’t have the security that you thought you had,” she says.

But her fear didn’t stop her.

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

In a police report, officers said the suspect used a large rock to smash the bottom glass out of the door. They then cut out the screen.

On the other side of the door, NJ was awake and ready.

“I don’t know what was going on in my mind. Honestly all I wanted was my gun,” she said.

She grabbed it and went downstairs.

“I was probably running down the stairs with my new hip so to speak,” said NJ.
