A Fort Worth woman protected her son and her home Friday when she shot and wounded an intruder who was breaking into her home. She left to pick her son up from school, and when she arrived back at home, an unwelcome guest had broken in. She grabbed her gun and shot the man, hitting him in the leg. The intruder then fled out the door while being chased by her 16-year-old son. The boy reported that the would be burglar yelled, “Please don’t kill me” as he bolted out the door. The suspect was quickly rounded up in a nearby creek by police, and will be arrested after medical personnel release him. The suspect will likely face a burglary of a habitation charge and is reported to be wanted on at least one outstanding warrant, according to police. The woman, who declined to be identified and interviewed by reporters because she had been traumatized by the day’s events, said she was only trying to protect her son and her home. Nice shooting mom.
This is just one more example of the importance of the Second Amendment. There are people in high places actively trying to make it illegal to let you have the tools to protect your home, and your family. In some parts of the world, if someone breaks into your house, you have a legal obligation to flee, rather than stand your ground. This concept is so foreign to most gun owners that it boggles the mind. Stand up for your rights whenever you get the chance and help ensure that we, and our children, will always have the right to bear arms.
