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 left the house and the girl was found unharmed. The police arrived and took the man into custody.
What would have happened had the girl not been armed? We can’t be sure, but there are far too many stories of young girls being kidnapped, murdered, and raped.
The news is full of crimes and events that could have been prevented—or at least decreased the amount of damage—had there been less gun restrictions. One of the most recent examples is the Aurora, Colorado shooting that occurred back in July.
