14-year-old boy shoots intruder: Thank you 2nd amendment

By Randy Rose

As the Progressives create new ways to take away your gun for the “Public’s Protection,” one family is glad they did not listen to the Progressive Liberals. There was indeed a gun in the house and a family that knew how to use it. The 14-year-old boy was babysitting his three younger brothers at their home at 55th Avenue and Baseline in Phoenix, AZ when a woman rang the doorbell Friday. The teen didn’t open the door because he didn’t recognize her, Police Officer James Holmes said Saturday. Soon after, the teen heard a bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent’s bedroom. When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man breaking through the front door and point a gun at him. The boy shot the 37-year-old man, who is in critical condition but expected to survive and be booked into jail. Holmes said the suspect did not get a shot off. He declined to release his name until he is booked into jail. The woman got away.

What would have happened if the Liberals had their way and there was no gun in the house? The kids would have run upstairs to hide, and the gun man would pick them off one by one. The woman would have returned to steal any items of value from the house. The parents would then come home to a nightmare as the police see them as their prime suspects.

    This is a good story. We have to remember that like a hammer, money or a gun. They all have one thing in common, they are all tools. I am I very glad this young man knew how to use a gun. This is a perfect example of why the second amendment needs to be preserved.

    Though I do not have children, I learned while working as an overnight security guard, how to handle a firearm. Proper training is vital when one wishes to own a gun. Taking away the rights of individuals to own a gun will not stop those without training to own them. Nor will it stop those who wish to hurt others, just for the fun of it, from owning and using them. But an intelligent person who takes the time to learn, and ensure that others in the home are also taught proper firearm safety, will ensure a home that is protected from bad, harmful people. Thank you for sharing this.

    I am a progressive and glad that this boy had the wherewithal, and more importantly, had proper firearm training, to stop this intruder and protect his family. Don’t paint with a broad brush. There are plenty of us left of center who believe the 2nd Amendment is civil rights issue and are firearms enthusiasts.

    Thank you for running that story. These uses of guns that protect people’s lives and property go under reported.
    Thanks.
