FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ – A 92-year-old woman is behind bars after she fatally shot her son who wanted to put her in an assisted living facility.

According to reports, Anna Mae Blessing moved in with her 72-year-old son and his girlfriend about six months ago.

A discussion was had recently regarding Blessing being placed in an assisted living facility — something Blessing was not too keen on doing.

“From my understanding, she had thought about it for a few days because there was a dispute regarding her son wanting to put her in an assisted living home,” Maricopa County Sgt. Bryant Vanejas said.

So, on Monday, Blessing walked into her son’s bedroom with two handguns hidden in the pockets of her robe.

After telling her son she was tired of the way he treated her, Blessing pulled out one of the guns and shot him several times, killing him.

His girlfriend, who was in the room, managed to wrestle the gun out of Blessing’s hand and then knock the second gun out of Blessing’s hand when she pulled it out of her other pocket.

Blessing reportedly sat on a reclining chair and calmly waited for police to arrive.

“As the suspect was being escorted from the residence, she made a spontaneous statement to the effect of ‘You took my life, so I’m taking yours,'” court documents said.

Blessing has been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault and kidnapping.

Here’s some advice for some of you… advice I plan on following myself: If you don’t want to die alone in a urine-smelling facility full of other old, decrepit strangers then start making plans early so you don’t become a burden on someone else.

I don’t depend on anyone, so when I get old I’m hiring a Guatemalan chick who’s not opposed to giving hand jobs to an old man getting hooked on heroin. After caring for me until I die of an overdose, she’ll inherit the house.

Plan B is to still get addicted to heroin, but drive myself off a cliff the day I start involuntarily shitting myself.
