Posted on 06/04/2013 7:35:27 AM PDT by Puppage
A 9-year-old boy fought back against two robbers who broke into his family's home in Brooklyn Monday, slamming a bedroom door against one suspect's arm so hard that the loaded gun he was holding fell to the floor, police said.
The boy then picked up the weapon and fired shots, scaring off the would-be robbers.
The robbers entered the house on 80th Street in Canarsie at about 6 p.m. and ordered two teenagers inside to get on the floor, according to police.
The only other person in the house was the boy, who was upstairs.
When one of the suspects ran upstairs and tried to get into a second-floor bedroom, the 9-year-old boy slammed the door on the suspect's arm, causing him to drop the gun.
The boy picked up the gun and fired it at the suspect, according to police. No one was hit, but the home invaders quickly ran out of the house.
Police are searching for the suspects. The boy and the teenagers are said to be OK.
But, the MSM says guns aren't used to save lives./sarc
I read in another news outlet that, when the perps ran off, they fired back at the kid & missed.
Brave little fella!!

Good job kid.
Good for this youngster. Of course NYPD will charge the kid with the crime of firing the weapon and ruin his life.
The Dems mustn’t let anyone use a gun to defend themselves, the criminals have more rights than the intended victims.
Canarsie, a lovely neighborhood where even 9 year olds will cap your a**
Whoa...missed the Brooklyn part.
This kid is going to jail. Cuomo will make certain of that.
How many rounds did the gun contain? Hope it wasn’t more than seven (before the kid blasted the bad guys).

Ah, but he can't be held to account.
It wasn't his gun!
Wow, I know we live in up side down times but I hope we're not that far gone.
The kid touched a gun without training or permission = jail.
Parent had unsecured gun in house = jail.
It’s NY, I would not put it past the Dems to do so.
Liberal hatred of guns is intense enough that anyone who uses one should have their life destroyed.
As soon as his school finds out he’ll be suspended for a week.
I wouldn't either ;(
How did you italicize my comment? I don’t know how to do that.
Oh he’ll get a tax audit for sure...and he’ll be preemptively suspended next fall from his 0 tolerance public school for touching a gun and trying to be a hero. Obama will use this as a pretext for signing the UN small arms treaty.
It was the criminal’s gun. He slammed the door on the criminal’s arm causing the miscreant to drop the gun.
I call B.S.
The other thread said he was 10.
