14yr boy shoots dirtbag or

by Tony Holmes / June 24, 2012 12:36 AM PDT

"Boy,did I pick the wrong house".

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.

This kid had the proper mental attitude and was obviously trained to handle a weapon.He took careful aim and did not hesitate at the moment of truth,plus he fired only one round.

...for the Liberals to attack the family next. Probably will hold off till more info is released, but maybe, just maybe, they will do as usual and go batty beforehand.

Why would you think
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 24, 2012 9:44 PM PDT

that Democrat's would say this was wrong?

As I understand it very few if any Democrats are campaigning for guns to be made illegal, nor are they saying that self-defense is illegal.

It's strange how you think Democrats are pacifists. FDR wasn't and neither was JFK.

Even me, communist sympathiser from Europe, (according to many), applaud this young man's courage and actions.

In reply to: Why would you think

believe a 14 yr old shouldn't have access to a gun and would like to regulate that. I believe parents should make the decision on whether their teen is responsible enough to have access to the gun. We already have laws that penalize parents if a gun is used by a teen in an improper situation.

You don't think 14 yr olds should go around with a gun do you? Does that make you a Liberal?

In this case the situation appears to justify the actions. Why would any Democrat disagree with that?

When I was 14 we had guns and more. This varies a lot with regions and countries but not long ago, you would not dare to break into a home in certain areas.

there are guns, and then there are guns

Access to a lite gauge shotgun or rifle is common enough to kids who are 13, where I come from.

I would point out that most "liberals" are referring to hand guns or automatic weapons when they talk about gun laws.

Most children who are hurt by accidental shootings where wounded by hand guns.

I was just thinking about that
by James Denison / June 25, 2012 5:43 AM PDT

My first was a .22 rifle. My Dad's was a .410 "over under" shotgun. Weaker guns than adults used.

High School brings on the deer rifles
by grimgraphix / June 26, 2012 3:09 PM PDT

for the brushy wooded ridges in WV, a 30-06 is a good choice or a 12 gauge with a pumpkin ball or rounded slug. When the steep ridges give way to rolling hills and grassy meadows, a .270 with a good scope becomes a great choice.

I always liked a .410 or 20 gauge for squirrel hunting, or a .22 if you were a really good shot and had a decent squirrel dog that would walk the critter from the far side of a tree into your sights.

I just hope that it was an extremely painful wound.........
by Tony Holmes / June 25, 2012 7:39 AM PDT

from a large caliber handgun.

What was the alterrnative? Four dead kids and heartbroken parents?? The kid did good and his parents should be proud!

I must admit the kid was much more generous than I would have been.If it was my home,that garbage would have been face to face with "Ole Painless",my Mossberg that I keep loaded with 3in mag double ought buck.If I was in a bad mood,I would have pumped a 2nd round.

Interesting tactic these morons use though,they send a female to the door and get the home owner to drop his guard.They figure that even if the homeowner has a gun,he won't have it in his hand when he sees a woman at the door.The door opens and it's all over Sad

yet another which involves a female member of gang
by James Denison / June 24, 2012 4:44 AM PDT
3 Hispanics involved in this one (seen images on another arrest site). Not sure if the timeline matches up with the other invasion where a gang member was shot.The method is very similar too. Arizona has been getting a lot of flack over trying to control illegal immigrants, but then look at the crime explosion they are dealing with there.

I'm begining to wonder if that 14yr old did the cops a favor
by Tony Holmes / June 25, 2012 6:37 AM PDT

and busted an organized gang?? You know the cops will grill the hell out of the wounded dirtbag and he'll probably rat out his female partner.
