According to gun control zealots guns actively seek out and murder children. They imply that owning a gun in a home with kids will result in those guns killing the kids. I wonder how they explain this story:
A 14-year-old boy shot an intruder at a Laveen home near 55th and Minton avenues Friday afternoon, police said.
The boy was home with his three siblings, ranging in age from 8 to 12, when he saw a woman they did not recognize at the front of the house around 4:30 p.m. She began pounding on the door, said James Holmes, a Phoenix police spokesman.
The boy went upstairs and got a handgun, police said. A man with a rifle had forced his way into the home. He aimed the gun at the boy, and the boy shot him, police said.
This story demonstrations that the property method of keeping children safe around firearms isn’t abstinence, it’s education. Because the boy was property educated on the use of firearms he was able to protect his two siblings against an armed home invader. Had there not been a gun in the house the boy and his two siblings could very well be dead right now.
Kudos to the boy for defending his family and kudos to the parents for teaching the child how to properly handle a firearm.
