The kids that young being left alone like that is not good. But his use of the firearm for self-defense of him and his sister is cool with me. I think the kid did right but the question that should be asked is why they were left alone to begin with.

I'd like to meet this ten year old kid, he's a complete bad ass. Some guy shot his mouth off to a kid after breaking into his apartment, and the kid by responded by.... shooting the guys mouth off. LMAO.


To young to be alone, I agree, but this kid just proved he's got what it takes to handle it.

You know, I can see your point, but there are so many single parents, that it might be some have no choice. Might be that She is just barely making expenses and cannot aford a day care and has no family close by. Also I applaud the boy with having the frame of mind to protect his sister, and it will get worse before it gets better. I think I would really enjoy taking him for a week of back to nature and k
living off the land for a week. I remember my older brother would take me hunting, and all we would carry is a flashlight, a 22 for me & a baby nipple, and a loaf of bread and salt & pepper, told me NO KILL/NO EAT. Surprising what you can find if you are hungry.

Like i said, a "properly taught 10 year old". This kid is a decent example; he knew how to operate the gun and not to play with it or point it at friendlies. Sounds like a good kid. Luckily, i don't have any children that i know of; if i did have offspring that would be alone for long periods of time, they would be familiar with a shotgun. I would choose the shotgun due to its unsuitability for "playing around" (heavy, long, very dificult for small people to point at themselves). I'd probably be under the jail by now for teaching a child to defend itself.

My kids stay at home, alone, while my wife and I work. What's wrong with that? I pity the fool that tries to kick down my door with my 12 year old daughter there. She can shoot ALMOST as well as I can. And before anyone says anything crazy, she has been through Hunters Education classes, babysitter courses(which includr CPR training), and she passed my training course(that was the toughest one!).

I'm gonna agree with War Eagle. The kid's a badass - to even have the countenance in that kind of situation - which must have been horrifying to ANY person, let alone a 10 year-old.

I hate to hear of latch-key kids, but also know it's a reality. Assuming the kids know that playing with the firearm under any other circumstances is bad news, I say kudos to that young man for protecting his home and his sister. It took ballz, so hat's off to him.
