Mom with Rife Protects Children from Thugs

When a Democrat tries to tell you that a long gun doesn’t work well for home protection – you should just direct them back to this page.

While a shotgun or handgun may be preferred for personal self-defense, sometimes you just don’t have the luxury of access to the perfect protection. A mom in Detroit recently proved that any defense in time of crisis is better than no defense when she used her rifle to defend her home from three teen thugs who kicked in her front door in the middle of the night.

The woman was home with her two children and she had two options – be defenseless and hope the evil men at her door would not hurt her or her children, or defend her home with her gun in an effort to keep her kids safe. She chose right.

The police apprehended the three thugs after the break-in, but notice the chain of events. Criminals break down the door, woman defends home, criminals flee, woman calls police, police apprehend criminals.

There is no time for this to play out in the victims favor any other way. The police exist to capture lawbreakers so that the courts can mete out justice for crime, not to prevent crime from happening… though we hope that justice will provide incentive to stop crime. If the woman had used her time to call the police instead of getting her gun, she and her kids may have been dead by the time police arrived.

Go for your gun first – then call the police.
