Meet Captain Nieves Fernandez, the only known Filipino female guerrilla leader and school teacher. When the Japanese came to take the children under her care she shot them. She didn't hide in a closet, she didn't put up a gun free zone sign, she shot them in the face with her latong (a home made shotgun).

Note she has an M1 carbine with a 15 round magazine - illegal in the Gun Control States of California and Massachusetts.

She then went on to kill over 200 Japanese soldiers during the war with a group of commandos and holds the distinction as the only female commander of a resistance group in the Philippines.

In this photo she is showing U.S. Army Private Andrew Lupiba how she used her bolo to silently kill Japanese sentries during the occupation of Leyte Island.

Can you imagine an American school teacher in the day & age having the chutzpah to pull off a class act like this?



  1. Yep, teachers in Texas or Oklahoma might not be that good at killing bad guys but a lot of them, male and female would try. Of course I live in a part of Texas where the opening days of dove and deer season are unofficial excused absences and Sunday school is often cancelled on that first weekend.

  2. I think we're gonna be surprised who comes out of the shadows when the SHTF.

  3. Actually, her carbine and 15 round mag are perfectly legal in Massachusetts so long as you have a class A LTC. Since the picture has to have been taken prior to the Clinton-era AWB, the mags are grandfathered, and the carbine isn't an prohibited weapon.
