12-year-old Girl Shoots Intruder During Home Invasion

So how do we say no to this little girl's rights to:

1. Learn how to handle a gun.

2. Shoot an intruder.

3. Protect herself, her home.

I can't...

Yet so many people are trying to take away the right to protect ourselves and to own a gun for that purpose. I wonder how the parents will vote on these issues? (assuming they even get a chance to vote)

She called her mom, Debra St. Clair, who told her to get the family gun, hide in a closet and call 911. the intruder made his way through the house. St. Clair's daughter told deputies the man came into the room where she was hiding and began to open up the closet door. That was when the 12 year old had to make a life-saving decision. "And what we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door," said the Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden.

Mighty smart little girl...

On a side note, her boyfriends will pay closer attention when she says..."NO!"

Good on her!

Second to safety, this is exactly why you teach your kids how to properly use a firearm.

Glad to hear she's ok, and I sincerely hope this doesn't stick with her in a negative way. She did the right thing.
