    15-Year Old Boy Uses AR-15 to Defend Himself, Sister Against Home Invaders

    Around 2:30 PM, two men tried to break in, with one going through the front door and the other in the back.

    The boy grabbed the AR-15 and shot at them. The two later showed up at a Tomball hospital. The adult was hit three times and was flown to Memorial Hermann hospital, while the juvenile was taken back to the crime scene.


    “We don't try to hide things from our children in law enforcement,” Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said. “That young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.”


    More stories are coming out about armed citizens defending their lives and property with legally owned firearms.

    Way to go kid. You're lucky to have parents who taught you responsible gun usage.

    Guns save lives... and deter the idiots. Gun free zones... disarming citizens is begging for the worst to happen. For women a gun may be the only protection between them and some goon. Certainly most woman do not have the strength to overpower a man.

    Had someone been armed at any of these mass killings, the shooter would have caused less mayhem, and may have been deterred altogether.

    Here is a question. Gun have been selling like hotcakes... NRA membership is growing quickly... criminals know it. I wonder... with all this gun sales activity, will we see the numbers of non-gang crime fall? Of course, if Obama passes his idiocy, he will claim credit for it. He is largely responsible for the rise in gun sales due to his and his party's long standing hostility to the 2nd Amendment, and their eagerness to exploit Sandy Hook.

    I preferred Obama to Romney, but I don't agree with is notion that destroying the 2nd Amendment would be a good idea.

    The kid did not need a machine gun, a single shot hunting rifle would have sufficed. Now we have a poor man in the hospital full of bullets instead of just one, this kids spray and pray shooting technique did nothing but cost us taxpayers money.

    Absolutely!!

    If this had been a law abiding child instead of some renegade hellion he would have used Daddy's musket and politely asked both visitors to have stood one in front of the other as he loaded an exploding, armor piercing musket ball with which to assassinate them.

    The fact is that ALMOST any gun in this situation would have sufficed and the fact it was an AR-15 is irrelevant in terms of defending yourself. The AR-15 is not NEEDED to protect yourself with.

    With that being said, I don't believe in assault weapons bans nor do I think they should be demonized as I believe that guns don't kill people, bullets fired out of those guns by people do.

    From the sounds of things this kid had bad guys approaching from both sides so, as a minimum, semi-auto was a VERY important factor.

    I don't agree that any of the actions proposed so far qualify as "destroying the 2nd amendment."

    A semi-auto pistol would also have worked.
