PP RAY’S RAMBLINGS:
A lady approached her car in the parking lot and saw 4 men in it. She pulled out her handgun and told them to get out believing they were attempting to steal her car. Her key didn’t fit the ignition so she found her car and went to the police station to report the 4 men. They were in custody and when they saw her told the police she was the lady who tried to steal their car at gunpoint!
