12-year-old Girl + Shotgun > Large Bad Man

A 12-year-old girl is being hailed a hero for shooting a home intruder after she hid with a gun in the closet.

Kendra St Clair, from Oklahoma, was home alone when she heard someone break in.

She called her mother and asked what she should do, and her terrified mom told her to get the gun and hide in the closet and stay there until she thought the coast was clear.

But when she emerged from her hiding space and went to the back door, she saw the intruder was still trying to break in and ran back into the closet.  …

‘When I was back there (in the closet) on the phone with 911, I heard the bathroom light turn on that was leading to the closet. And when I saw the door handle turn, I shot him.

I wrote before about how guns are great equalizer for self defense; especially for women.  Self defense is one of the basket of rights we inherit from our creator.  It does not come from the government; it cannot be taken away.

All rational people would hate to think of what would have happened — how differently this situation could have turned out — if this little girl did not have that shotgun.

Shame on those who would take it away from her.
