Brooklyn Boy, 9, Grabs Gun from Armed Home Invaders, Fires Shots: Police
nbcnewyork.com ^ | 06/04/2013

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.

I read in another news outlet that, when the perps ran off, they fired back at the kid & missed.

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.

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.

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.

It's not like he made a gun out of a Pop Tart or anything.

Yes he is! They won't print his name because he's a minor but I hear his initials are John McClane.

Welcome to the party, pal!

But when he picked it up, he “possessed” it, so he violated the letter of several NY Fascist State laws. Seriously. They’re that poorly (or intentionally oppressively?) worded.

Yes, when is it going to start? ;^)

Finally fired up the Weber on the 2nd. Caramelization achieved. Possibly the best country style pork ribs I have ever pulled off of the grill. Woo hoo!

Already 86 degrees here as I type, supposed to be in the low 100's today.

Sounds like you got the Caramelization thingy nailed!!

Mmmmm, mmmmm!

I nailed it on Sunday! Everything came together in one of those rare grillage triumphs. Sauce was right, meat was cooked through but tender and juicy and the glaze caramelized perfectly with almost no burning. I have set a new bar to clear for all future BBQs.

Thanks go to you for pointing me in the right direction. ;-)

This has got to be the coolest spring I can remember. I'd like to chain Algore to a tree out by the garden for a night and let him experience some Glowbull Warming.

At very least the kid is guilty of felony Denial of Reparations to an Accredited Victim class. :)

If the gun recovered is covered in the new New York SAFE Act, will the cops arrest him and prosecutors seek to put him in prison? He had an illegal, unregistered gun in his possession!

Don't be silly....the gun would have killed him, not the people.

“It was the criminal’s gun. He slammed the door on the criminal’s arm causing the miscreant to drop the gun.”

I know. But what you just described is an illegal transfer to a minor.

It’s hard to joke by being absurd. Anti-gunner lawmakers criminalize the very things we just joked about.

“If you have a gun for self defense, the bad guy will just end up taking it and using it on you.”

Well, huh.
