14 Year Old Phoenix Boy Shoots Armed Intruder While Watching His 3 Younger Siblings … Why We Have a Second Amendment
If there was ever a reason why we have a Second Amendment and a Right to Bear Arms, one needs to look no further than the following story.
A 14 year old Phoenix, AZ boy shot an intruder who had broke into his home as the boy was looking out for three siblings, ages 12, 10 and 8. The 37 year old home invader was carrying a gun was shot and is in critical condition, but expected to live. What a brave act on the part of this 14 year old boy. Look what happens when law abiding citizens are allowed to carry guns.
The teen and his brothers and sisters were at home alone at their residence at 55th Avenue and Baseline 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 hailed the teen’s actions and his parents for teaching the kids to never open the door to strangers.
“The police and indeed our community does not ever want to see a situation where a teenager of that age has to take a weapon to protect his family … but this young man did exactly what he should have done,” he said. “I’m not sure he gave full thought about what he had to do. He just acted.”
