Of course he wouldn't, it's part of what makes him a bad person. I wouldn't waste time crying about it either. But I would bet you money it would weigh heavy on my mind for some time.

His actions were perfect! I would be so proud of him! His praise is for the outcome and his quick thinking. Sure there will be reflection that is gruesome and sad, nobody likes to think this is a necessary thing to teach a kid but the ends justify the means 100 times over.

The adult that taught him these skills should be commended as well, it may have saved the lives of 4 and anyone else the scumbag POS may have tried to rob armed with a firearm.

A child should be taught to respect firearms, handle and shoot them well and understand the purposes they were created for. This young man obviously was and learned well! The longest lasting effects of this incident will be positive for the most part, one less piece of trash floating around, friends and neighbors empowered by this triumph and he gets to live as do his siblings, sounds like a perfect bedtime story for the Grand-kids!

>Soon after, the teen heard a bang on the door, rushed his siblings upstairs and got a handgun from his parent's bedroom. When he got to the top of the stairs, he saw a man breaking through the front door and point a gun at him.<

Fourteen year old kid, younger children in the house, ready access to a gun, I’m guessing he shot intruder from the top of the stairs (15', handgun!?) OR was competent to get into a better position. Story didn’t state how many rounds were fired or what caliber.

This child was properly trained. If it was just one round, certainly he was.

Otherwise it implies an unsecured gun in a house with small children.

Glad he was able to defend his home & family . Sorry he had to defend his home & family .

Good on him, good on his parents.

I'm impressed that the media totally supported the boys actions. You don't see that much anymore.
Awesome kid.

You type this as if its a bad thing. IF the guns had been secured and the children NOT trained, we would be discussing a tragedy and the antis would have more fuel for their "Guns are evil" and "Evil guns killed these innocent children" flames.

Instead you wont hear a PEEP outta the Brady bunch. Hell, i am surprised it made the lame stream news at all!

Secure your guns with training, not locks! Keep you guns out of the hands of slime balls with a safe, not out of the hands of your family.

I agree. I was just surmising from his actions that:
1) he knew how to handle a gun and;
2) he was trusted to get to it.
Which didn’t happen all by itself but with foresight by his parents.

As contrasted to out to lunch ‘grown-ups’, who leave kids in a house, with an easily available gun, who would want to play with it.

I would feel something if i had to shoot and kill an attacker/intruder, but it wouldnt be good but it wouldnt be terrible. Sure, i would feel that it sucks that i had end someones existance, but that person just tried to hurt you and your family,i will not feel bad for that person. By stopping an attacker you are also preventing future victims, that is a justice in itself that you shouldnt feel bad about your actions. I am not heartless when it comes to people but a person that preys on innocent people is not human in my eyes and i dont see them as such. Im glad that the only casulty was the bad guy.
