Three teenage girls home alone. Two men in a white sedan pull into the driveway and begin looking for a way on. One tries to kick in the door. Another goes around back and grabs a shovel to break a window. The girls have called 911 but when seconds count…
…the police are always minutes away.
At one point the man who was trying to break in circled around to the backyard and was prepared to bust open a window with a shovel. … thee man and his driver started arguing. During that argument, the youngest of the teenage girls in the home, only 14-years-old, found and loaded a 9mm pistol.
Once she noticed the argument between the two men, she fired the gun in their general direction and they left.
She knew where to find the gun, how to load it, and how to use it. The end result was that none of these girls had to worry about what happens when those men break into the home. Had the intruders persisted, odds are good those guys be wounded or dead. Had they not been armed, they may have been in grave danger.
I know, lefties, it’s bad for the environment. The sound huts your ears. What if you’d shot a sea turtle? The girls are lucky they didn’t shoot themselves. The home invaders would have disarmed them and killed them “with their own gun.” Blah Blah Blah. Or, there’s this.
“Considering that she is 14-years-old, she did a good job. I encourage everyone that can legally carry a firearm, to carry a firearm to protect themselves and their families just in case the need arises,” Lawrence County Constable Daniel Castle.
Well, now. How about that.
