    This is exactly why I want my kids to be proficient with firearms. In the event that they need to use one, I might not be around to help, and I'd rather have peace of mind knowing they'll hit their target and not themselves or some innocent bystanders.

    They indeed did cut off where she was about to say she had been trained to use the gun.

    It is too bad they cut her off as she was about to talk about her previous firearms usage, but I am very glad that she not only was taught what to do, but was not afraid to do it.

    Kudos to her. I sincerely hope she is "okay" what what she had to do and doesn't have any PTSD issues. They did appear to be the most affluent family, so I doubt they have tons of excess cash for therapy sessions.

    I am really glad the bad guy got exactly what he deserved, albiet a bit shot of the ideal outcome, this is far better for that brave little 12 year old.

    Excellent find Overkill - Thanks for posting!

    That's exactly it. I am so proud of that girl. She has more cajones than I think I would. She is incredible. I'm glad she didn't kill him, though, because that would have been very difficult for the girl to live with. But if she had killed the intruder..........meh.

    Kudos to the kiddo!

    Maybe they will let her get a puppy now, a Rottweiler puppy. Or maybe she will ask for a Mossberg 500 in 20 guage with a security barrel and bayonet.

    Good point. From what I heard on the news this morning, she shot him through the closet door or something along those lines, so I would imagine she was in the sitting position. Hopefully she shot him in the nuts so he can live the rest of his life without his manhood. That would be awesome.

    This man has prior arrests for abductions or attempted abductions, so it's no doubt that he was attempting to abduct her as well. That was probably his entire purpose of breaking into the home. Maybe had been spying on the home waiting for the parents to leave. Sick bastard.

    Owned. Rot in prison. I'm sure all the dads in lockup will have a field day with him.

    The news supported her actions, but cut her off before she could say that she was taught how to use the gun. They probably had a short window for the story and they were very supportive. But still, her training is a more important part of the story than who and what she hit!

    Love your signature, by the way!

    She got him through the shoulder and he ran from the house.

    That's the outcome I would hope for. Empty magazine and an aerated perp.

    Kudos to this fine young lady! I'm gonna venture a guess that after this any boyfriends she has won't want to get too "handsy" with her! :D:D:D

    As satisfying as that would be for us uninvolved observers, think about the 12 year old girl. Killing someone at any age comes with a price. She'd have to grow up with that label, go through school with that label. She'd have to work pretty hard to avoid applying that label to herself. Seems to me the best outcome (other than BG stays home) is what happened.

    She done good! I'm glad to see she was able to defend herself. You never know when these kind of things will happen. I'm glad her mother had taught her about the gun.

    What a brave young lady. I hope that she's recognized for keeping her composure and making good decisions. She has every right to be very proud of herself. It would be a tragedy if she's criticized for her actions. She's already A PTSD victim but I suspect that with the proper support from family, friends and her religious leaders , she'll do just fine.

    Let's hope that her actions inspire other ordinary citizens to learn how to avoid become a victim of those who seek to take her rights away (both criminals and criminal organizations).
