    A 14-year-old boy shot and nearly killed an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him while he was watching his three younger siblings, police said Saturday. The teen and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell on Friday. A common enough occurrence, the boy still chose not to open the door because he didn’t recognize the woman.
    Quickly escalating into a far more dangerous situation, the 14-year-old rushed his siblings upstairs after he heard a loud bang on the door, grabbing his father’s handgun on the way.
    When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw an armed man break through the front door and point a gun at him.
    Acting swiftly, he reportedly shot the 37-year-old man, who was taken to a hospital in extremely critical condition to undergo surgery.

    Good for him. Too bad he didn't kill him.

    :cool:
    All positive remarks!

    Thanks!
    :thup:


    There's a comment at the bottom of the linked story that rings too true.....

    Imagine Family Services taking the kids because they say the kid was too young to babysit and arrest the dad for leaving an unsecured firearm lying around!

    THAT would be fukt up

    What negative remark could there possibly be? A liberal would love to make one, probably about how there's guns available for young children to easily grab...but that's the GOOD part of this story, so they're left with nothing :lol:
