A 15-year old boy used his fathers AR-15 to defend himself and his 12-year old sister against two burglars at their home just north of Houston, Texas.
Their father is a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy constable, and the boy knew what he had to do to keep himself and his sister alive. 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. In the span of a week, Breitbart News has reported how a mother used a .38 revolver against an intruder, a man used his weapon to protect his 2-month old son, and a Colorado man invoked the Make My Day law in Colorado in using lethal force to defend himself against three intruders.
Senator Dianne Feinstein and others are trying to push through major gun control laws that would include banning the AR-15, the same gun used by the teenage boy.

IAC, I would prefer a .12 gauge pump. Guess they will go after those,next.
Must be a fake story. The Houston Chronicle has NO story about this at all.
I wonder what Miss America has to say about this!?
Wonder why the Houston Chronicle did not cover the story. Oh, wait....
I think “the juvenile” referred to in that sentence was the second intruder.
The lad with the AR drilled the older boogaler three times, while the younger pissant was unscathed and was perhaps hauled back to the crime scene to be ID’d.
The story ain’t writed very good.
Over 2 years ago. Not news, but I guess BB is trying to put out more these stories.
Some liberal idiot somewhere will suggest the parents should be prosecuted for allowing a minor to have access to firearms...watch for it to come!
When you leave your kids home alone, place some claymore’s on
the way to the car, and remind the kids not to order pizza.
the juvenile was taken back to the crime scene.
I think the robber not shot was a juvenile, and he was taken back, perhaps to be ID’d
Obama is going to lose a lot of supporters this year because of the increased gun buying. That’s why they want to start disarming conservatives this year. I have no idea whether this is true or not, but it would be interesting to know who some of these killed or captured clowns voted for.
It would be nice if some legitimate polling organization actually asked convictec criminals in, say, 10 large and 10 medium sized cities around the US, who they voted for, or if they voted at all.
Could be tricky because criminals have a habit of lying, but might also turn up some interesting statistics.
Despite the just outcome, the young lad will forever bear the terror of the event.
Relevant, but June 201o was a long time ago.
perp’was’lucky. god bless the brother, i only wish he’d have permanently taken the scum out. i suppose he does, too.
“Having only ten rounds may not be enough.”
If those limits happen, I predict:
1. Shooting ranges filled to capacity. I, for one, would see a great future for those “tactical” simulations that the police do - the “shoot -no shoot” stuff.
2. “Shoot to wound” won’t be an option. There will probably be MORE deaths.
3. “No-fail” weapons becoming very popular - i.e., 18” shotguns.
Well, if he had just the one gun, and a phone, I hope he delegated the younger sister to call for backup.
Re: “Took the boy back to the crime scene... Son, pretty good shooting, but next time aim like this....
LOL! Good one.
