Chief Tango sends us a story today from Hominy, Oklahoma where a ten-year-old girl answered her door when a teen was banging on it. The teen tried to force his way in the home but the mother slammed it in his face.
He then punched through the window on the door, so the woman said she woke her 17-year-old son and told him to get his gun.
Her son, who is a senior at Hominy High School, grabbed a 12-guage shotgun and fired as the other boy reached his hand through the broken glass and turned the doorknob to obtain entry.
A neighbor says the same person was sitting on her porch earlier. When she told him to leave, he started acting strangely, so she called 911. She said she was on the phone with dispatch when she heard gunfire next door.
So I guess we’ll never know if he was trying to turn his life around or just being a pest. Again the story isn’t that this happened, the story is that these stories happen every-damn-day, that every day Americans are protecting their homes and their families with gun with barely a mention from the media.
