Boy 9, Fights armed home invaders !!
 
Smart & fast !! Took the gun from one of them and scared them off !!

Boy, 9, Fights Armed Home Invaders, Grabs Gun: Cops
A 9-year-old boy fought back against two robbers who broke into his family's home in Brooklyn Monday, slamming a bedroom door against one suspect's arm so hard that the loaded gun he was holding fell to the floor, police said.

The boy then picked up the weapon and fired shots, scaring off the would-be robbers.

The robbers entered the house on 80th Street in Canarsie at about 6 p.m. and ordered two teenagers inside to get on the floor, according to police.

The only other person in the house was the boy, who was upstairs.

When one of the suspects ran upstairs and tried to get into a second-floor bedroom, the 9-year-old boy slammed the door on the suspect's arm, causing him to drop the gun.

The boy picked up the gun and fired it at the suspect, according to police. No one was hit, but the home invaders quickly ran out of the house.

Police are searching for the suspects. The boy and the teenagers are said to be OK.

He'll make one HELL of a Marine, Ranger or Seal one day!! ... If he lives long enough to grow up that much.....(Hope & pray!!)
But if I were in that family I would sleep a lot sounder if I could have a weapon at hand instead of depending on my ability to take one off the perp(s)... Plus the NYPD haven't found them yet. :eek:

Bloomberg needs to press charges against the 9 year old's parents for allowing him to hold a gun not to mention discharging it at a couple of yoots just getting their lives turned around!!
