Why I carry a handgun for protection, Vol. 27

So that if I ever have an 11-year old child just like the one in Palmview, Texas who along with his mother were the recent victims of a violent home invasion, my son will also be able to successfully defend himself and his mom in the event of my absence from the house. 

The brave preteen in question managed to fight off three armed intruders even though he had been shot in the hip by the men:

"Three men are being held for a Palmview home invasion where an 11-year-old boy was shot defending his mother.

Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office deputies told Action 4 News that it happened off Minnesota Road and 8 Mile Line between Palmview and Mission around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The homeowner said she and her 11-year-old son were in bed when she heard banging coming from the front door.

She got up to check and she saw two Hispanic males men wearing masks and armed with handguns walking towards her.

She quickly closed the bedroom door but one of the men allegedly tried to force it open.

The masked man kept telling her to open the door and she would not open the door.

The woman told deputies that the home invaders shot through the door and hit her son on the left hip area.

Her son had a 22 cal. Rifle and shot back at the alleged robbers.

The woman waited, opened the door, saw that the suspects were gone and called 911.

Deputies found blood all over the floor and noted that the front door had been knocked down."

At least one of the assailants later coincidentally turned up at the same local hospital where the brave kid was taken for treatment, and that particular invader apparently isn't doing very well at all:

"Criminal charges are expected to be filed against him, if he survives."

Two other suspects in the case have been detained - by ICE, since they appear to be illegal aliens from Mexico:

"U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials told Action 4 News that they have filed immigration detainers against the two men."

Just more of those innocent people that just want to get here in order to have a better life for themselves, eh, President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano?

That young man deserves a heap of praise for keeping his head in what must have been a truly scary and overwhelming situation, and for most likely saving the lives of both himself and his mother that night.

Anything you'd like to add, Sarah Brady?  After all, this is precisely the kind of scenario that you argue just never happens in America, which is why you continually bleat that there is no reason whatsoever for our nation's precious little snowflakes to receive quality firearms training or to even be allowed to so much as view a gun, much less responsibly handle one.

Well, this child seemed to do just fine, ma'am.  We're sure millions of others would do just as well, if you'd only go away and quit trying to indoctrinate them into a lifetime of victimhood.
