15-year-old defends home against burglars, shoots one of them with father’s AR-15

Not only did this brave 15-year-old defend his home against 2 burglars, but also his 12-year-old sister who was in the house with him. He grabbed his father’s AR-15 and shot one of the burglars multiple times. They got away but had to go right to the hospital where the minor was arrested and the adult who was shot was flown to a different hospital.

HMMMMNNN…So “the life of at least one child was just SAVED” by the availability of an AR-15. Do you think the Obama administration will consider that as canceling out that “One Child’s Life” they are so desparate to save by BANNING Ar-15s?

This is actually OLD news. It happened so long ago that KHOU doesn’t even have a link in its search engine to it anymore. I think it may have happened as much as 2 years ago or more. I remember the incident well though and thinking to myself, “Awesome Job young man!” I think he deserves a medal.

OUTSTANDING! What a great story – and THANK “KHOU” for having the nads to air the story.

Obama’s BASELESS threat to disarm ALL responsible American’s is treasonous; additionally, CHARACTERIZING and GROUPING all of us with the sicko (and those like him) from Newtown, Ct. is absurd.

Obama thinks we are all incapable of handling firearms and wants to abolish the 2nd Amendment, all the while overturning a law so HE CAN ENJOY ARMED PROTECTION for the rest of his life – – ON OUR DIME.

That just goes to show you that the “gun laws” soon to be pushed down to us – only apply to the “good people” and that the “bad people” will still (and will always) have guns.

It’s a crock of sh!t. All of it.

Good for this kid, Good for this dad – and thank the Lord above that he and his sister are safe.

Only thing wrong with this video was the dumb broad describing the AR15 as an “assault” rifle. It is not an “assault” rifle! It is a firearm, nothing more nothing less! If you really want to describe it, then in this case it was a defense weapon!!!

In Illinois, the gun could legally be in the house if the Mother or Father had a F.O.I.D. (firearm’s owner ID card), but it would be illegal for the child to have access to it. Additionally, it would be illegal for the child or anyone to “touch” the gun without a F.O.I.D. card. You can’t even go to a sporting goods/gun store and “touch” a gun without a F.O.I.D. While I’d like to belive that this state isn’t so far gone that the child would be subject to charges, I can guarantee we have some state’s attorney’s that would “mention” the fact that they could charge the Father…but wouldn’t because “they care”!

Here in Marylandistan, the kid and the father would be arrested and all of their guns seized. I miss Texas so bad.

This is a story that EVERY media outlet should report! Not all PEOPLE that use a gun are bad guys!! It’s the person not the gun that is what is wrong! I can’t stand Bias media only reporting the bad stories.

Colorado has “Make MY Day” law. Come in my home uninvited, you probably aren’t walking out. Shout out, “If you come in here, I will shoot you.” If they are already inside, too late.

The FACT is, this type of thing happens every day, the left-wing media just refuses to report it nationally.
Semi-auto’s are PARTICULARLY well suited to home defense, and thank God, this boy knew how to use it.

Great story. What a BRAVE young man. Thank God that his father was a responsible gun owner and taught his children about firearms and what to do in case of an emergency. His father was a Constable and yet the young man didn’t call 911 and hide in a corner waiting for he and his sister to become victims, knowing that police were minutes away when he obviously only had seconds. Bravo young man. I don’t understand why the liberals can’t use common sense regarding gun laws. The bad guys will ALWAYS have access to ALL weapons. I could go on and on however, I am sure most people on this site “Get it!!”

Don’t tread on me~

God bless him and the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution!
All you gun-grabbing commies had better heed this. There are many, many armed citizens in this country and we will defend ourselves, our families and our rights as citizens. Executive Order be damned!

a Burglar usually turns into a murderer once cornered. Anyone has the right to protect himself against a murderer by trying to kill the murderer first. a burglar is only a burglar when there is no one at the house he is breaking into, once there are people inside the burglar turns into a robber who will turn into a murderer once cornered. So you need to do what needs to be done. The more you kill these bastards the less crime there will be.

This is exactly the sort of incident that needs to be included in these so called gun legislation that obama keeps talking about. Legal firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens save more lives than the liberals want to hear about.

Luckily it wasn’t deer trying to break into the house, because NY Governor Cuoumo says we can’t shoot deer with an AR. I am still trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to find where deer are mentioned in the Second Amendment.

When will people demonstrate in Washington in a peaceful protest to let the country know the numbers who want O. impeached for numerous violations of Separation of Powers?

That before civil war please?
