“12 year-old defends herself with gun”. Good for her! Too bad the hoodlum didn’t die of his gunshot wounds. He will most likely be back kicking in doors and robbing once he recovers and gets out of jail on parole. That’s how our “justice” system works today you know. Criminals have rights, their victims don’t. If robbers are killed in the commission of their crimes, you don’t have to worry about them doing it again. Shooting blindly through a door, however, is usually not a good idea. I know of cases where family members were unintentionally shot through doors by family members, and killed. It could have been her mother, for her mother was on her way home after she got the call. But hopefully, her mother would call out to her. Louie

I live in a similar area, and in that situation would know that help was at best 10 minutes away.

As the left continues to advocate for further restrictions on the Second Amendment, others are using it to save their lives.

This past Wednesday a young 12-year old girl in Bryan County, Oklahoma was able to protect her life when an intruder kicked in her back door and entered her house. Frantically, she called her mother who advised her to grab their household gun, hide in the closet, and call 911.

The intruder made his way through the house, and as he was opening the door of the closet, the young girl shot him through the closet door. The intruder...
