You don’t want to mess with a pregnant woman… just sayin’. In Florida, a pregnant mother who is about eight months along made excellent use of an AR-15 to kill a home intruder after two masked men broke into her home. They pistol-whipped her husband and then violently grabbed their 11-year-old daughter. Jeremy King, 34, and his wife, 31, were at home in Lithia, Florida when this occurred last Wednesday at approximately 9 pm.
The men pointed guns at Jeremy’s head and demanded money. Jeremy tried to tell them they didn’t have any money and that was when the intruders grabbed the little girl. One of the men violently pistol-whipped Jeremy beating him badly and fracturing an eye socket and a sinus cavity. They gave him a concussion and all of this required 20 stitches and three staples in his head. The wife was in the back bedroom at the time and looked out to see what was going on. That’s when she decided to go after these guys.
One of the men fired a shot at the wife. She grabbed their AR-15 and started shooting at the intruders. Bad luck for them.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King described the moment his wife returned fire. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.” And in that ditch is where the guy died. The police found his body there.
Imagine if this had been taken from her and she was left defenseless. Glad she exercised her 2A rights to defend herself and her child. https://t.co/bBGzfeMGF2

From The Daily Mail:
“King’s wife only fired one round from the AR-15, which struck the suspect as he tried to flee.
“When deputies arrived on the scene shortly after, they found the suspect dead in the ditch.
“The other gunman ran off after the fatal shot was fired and investigators are still trying to locate him.
“King said he didn’t know the men and has no idea why their family was targeted.
“He was left with a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion from the attack.
“King also had to have 20 stitches and three staples in his head to close up a wound.
“‘Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King said.
“[My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.’
“The sheriff’s office confirmed that the AR-15 that King’s wife used was legally owned.
“Anyone with information related to the suspect at large is asked to call Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on 813-247-8200.”
The mother is being hailed as a hero and I agree. It’s a pity she didn’t get off another shot and take out the second guy.
An official with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office warned residents to be wary of the fugitive and to call 911 if they were aware of “suspicious” activity.
“I would encourage if any of the neighbors see any suspicious vehicles or anybody walking around the neighborhood that they do not recognize to please call 911,” Major Frank Losat told Bay News 9. “Do not approach this person as they might be armed if any vehicles are sitting in your driveway that does not look familiar please call us.”
Just think, if the left got their way that couple wouldn’t have had that gun and could be dead right about now. This time, a good mamma bear stopped a bad guy with a gun permanently. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Thank goodness for the Second Amendment.
Here’s to hoping they find the other guy soon and he faces swift justice for all of this.
