Teach your children well...
A good reason to take the kids to the range. This encounter would have had an entirely different outcome without weapons training.
Shooting in Butte, Montana
Shotgun preteen vs. illegal alien Home Invaders:
Butte, Montana November 5, 2007
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably be lieved they would easily overpower home-alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.
It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine.
Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen.
When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.
It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.
Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MS NBC, CNN, or ABC news........an 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself......against two murderous, illegal immigrants.......and she wins, she is still alive.
Now that is Gun Control ! Thought for the day:
Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant' i s like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'

altho a good story, its an urban myth. I've read this story dozens of times in a variety of different variations. While this exact story didn't exacly happen, its a very good possibility of something similar happening in any of our homes.

Closed to prevent further spread of an urban legend. (But I agree kids should be taught firearms safety! )
