– An Arizona woman, 92, killed her son who wanted to put her in a Nursing Home
– This story hits too close to home for Sarkes
This story was provided by Sarkes Corner St. Louis Bureau Chief and sister Cindy Mamelian. When Sarkes first read this story, something seemed strange. You see, Cindy normally submits stories to Sarkes Corner about Florida Crackers doing stupid things that Florida Crackers usually do.
But this story was different. A 92 year-old woman in Arizona shot and killed her son because she did not want to be sent to an assisted living facility.
Arizonian Anna Mae Blessing was charged with first degree murder, aggravated assault, and kidnapping after authorities found her 72 year old son dead Monday at their home in Fountain Hills in the Phoenix area.
Blessing hid TWO pistols in the pockets of her robe and shot her son several times in his bedroom. Her son’s girlfriend was also in the room and said she heard Blessing telling her son she was tired of the way he treated her.
Blessing then pointed the gun at her son’s girlfriend, who struggled with Blessing until she lost her grip of the gun. When Blessing pulled out a second pistol from her robe, her son’s girlfriend also knocked the 2nd Heat from her hands.
Only in a Bright Red State, like Arizona, can a 92 year old mother Pack Dual Heat, and then pop her 72 year old son. Sarkes, a Constitutional Scholar, can guarantee that our Founding Fathers never envisioned 92 year old Women Packing Heat. In fact, our Founding Fathers gave no rights to Women.
But something was still bothering Sarkes about this story. And then, an A – HA moment, the Light Bulb went on.
Sarkeses and Cindy’s mother, Alice Korkoian, will be 92 in September. For the past several years, Alice has been living in a great Independent Living Senior Center, River’s Edge. In the past year, Alice has had some health set backs and, while still able to live at River’s Edge, there may come a day when she may need to go into an Assisted Living home. If that day comes, Alice will go kicking and screaming.
Is Sarkes at Risk? Could Mother Alice be Packing Heat? Sarkes does not believe that mother Alice is Packing Heat. But she does live in Missouri, the Shoot Me State, where anyone, including Felon’s on Parole, can Pack Heat.
But just to be safe, when Sarkes goes to St. Louis to visit Alice, he will call ahead to River’s Edge Security and have them search Alices apartment for any Heat. One can never be too safe in the Shoot Me State.
