Shotgun Shooting in Butte, Montana Home Preteen vs. Illegal alien November 5, 2007

Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed 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 and genitals.

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, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC 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!

I heard it's an urban legend. The only thing I could find about that little girls name was a famous author. But who knows?

here's a link to a web page that says it's a hoax, basically just an internet story.

Damn right-wing propaganda

When all else fails, blame the "illegals"....No wonder our economy is shambles and people are losing everything they have (or had?).
When you get sucked into non-issues, it's for sure easy to get screwed by the government.

That story or a version of it has been floating around the Internet for years. There is a grain of truth in it but has been exaggerated and change to fit the locations. I have seen it happeing in about four different states and with different names.
