Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi had their way this 13-year-old would be dead. Instead, exercising his 2nd Amendment Rights, he’s alive and well and a six-time felon is in the ground where he belongs.
13-year-old South Carolina boy was home alone on Tuesday afternoon at the family farm when someone tried to break in the back door. He grabbed his mother’s gun, waited in the back door the home and when the would-be burglar tried to break in he fired through the door. One of the burglars return fire.
The young man’s aim was true, he hit one of the two burglars and killed him. His gun was found in the backyard.
As you think about this, remember that attacks on the 2nd Amendment by groups like “Mom’s Demand Action” continue to insist that a “good guy with a gun” is never able to protect himself or those around him. The attacks on the 2nd Amendment are based on lies and manipulated statistics. Fortunately, the American people aren’t buying them.
In fact, according to a survey done by Florida State University criminologists Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz, privately owned guns are used in legitimate acts of self-defense over 2 million times a year in America.
The study was conducted through 5,000 interviews with randomly generated phone numbers. The respondents were asked if over the past 5 years they had used a gun, even if they didn’t fire it, for self-defense or the defense of property. The study excluded military, police, and security work.
“Mom’s Demand Action” says a firearm is never used in self-defense, but Kleck and Gertz found that it happened up to 2 million times a year. Even if the margin of error was 75% that still 500,000 people who were able to protect themselves thanks to their 2nd Amendment rights.
The good news is, because of Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton and the forces of evil, Merrick Garland will not be sitting on the Supreme Court in our 2nd Amendment Rights will be protected by Donald Trump and his nominee to the Supreme Court.
I love the sight of social justice warrior tears in the morning.
