Gun toting granny shoots down drone

- Jennifer Youngman describes her Virginia neighborhood as peaceful, beautiful, and somewhere people really value their privacy. Until one day a drone threatened the privacy of her famous neighbor Robert Duvall, and Youngman wasn’t having it.

She explained, “I think people should respect his privacy when he is on his land. He is a national treasure.”

Luckily this gun-toting grandma was cleaning her shotgun on the front porch when the drone came back towards her house. Youngman said, “It started to come down and that is when I picked up and I came over here and raised my shotgun and blasted it out of the sky.”

She took down the drone with just one shot. The two people Youngman believes were flying the drone started walking towards her house. She told them that they could not trespass onto the property, while still holding her big shot gun.  “It did get them to turn around, and with haste, get out of here,” she recalls.

Youngman has not seen them since and there was never a police complaint filed over the destroyed drone. Can you blame them? We wouldn’t mess with her either. Robert Duvall, you have one good neighbor.
