12-Year-Old Defends Herself
with Gun, Proves Need
of 2nd Amendment

Townhall, by Celia Bigelow

Posted By:Judy W., 10/20/2012 7:38:31 AM

As the left continues to advocate for further restrictions on the Second Amendment, others are using it to save their lives. This past Wednesday a young 12-year old girl in Bryan County, Oklahoma was able to protect her life when an intruder kicked in her back door and entered her house. Frantically, she called her mother who advised her to grab their household gun, hide in the closet, and call 911. The intruder made his way through the house, and as he was opening the door of the closet, the young girl shot him through the closet door.

Actually, the outrageous goings-on in D.C. more accurately demonstrate the need for 2A, which is about defending our lives, property, wealth, liberty and freedom from any force intent on depriving us of these things.

Good for the 12-year-old girl. She did the right thing.

This young lady is from Oklahoma on the Texas boarder. Kids in those parts know how to safely handle firearms. Her mother gave her good advice...get the gun and hide in the closet. When the perp turned the knob boom! she shoots him through the door. The gun must have been a .357 magnum because the bullet went through the door, the perp and then the wall! Apparently from what can be had from the article the perp was not seriously injured as he was treated in the hospital and released to police custody. Another example of a crime thwarted by someone exercising her God given right to self defense.

If every adult in the theater in Colorado had been carrying do you think more or less than 12 people would have been killed? I think a lot less. As one Lucianne poster once wrote "If more sane people were armed, the crazy people would get off fewer shots." how true! Thank God for our 2nd Amendment right I just wish more citizens would exercise that right.

Thursday night I was staying at the double Tree Motel in Johnson City, TN. When entering the restaurant there I saw the "no guns allowed" sign on the door. I turned around and went somewhere else for dinner. Yes, I was armed. That sign says to me, ok bad guys, come in this place to rob and kill. No one in here can defend themselves.

Liberals and Democrats (is that an oxymoron) don't have IQ's high enough to know that gun laws do not keep guns out of the hands of criminals. They can buy them everywhere outside the law such as illegal gun sellers, out of the trunk of a car, etc.

Can any Liberal who thinks they are intelligent explain how to stop those gun sales? When they solve that problem then talk to me about my legal gun. Until then, SHUT UP!

Meanwhile the "family gun" is tagged and bagged in the evidence locker at the courthouse where it will stay until next August . There is no Question that it was used correctly and probably saved a life. It should have been unloaded and passed back to Dad with a nice "thanks for your help" from the Chief of Police. This family may not ever see their gun again. This is called taking guns off the street.

Here's a link to the article from Durant: http://www.newson6.com/story/19858704/12-year-old-girl-shoots-intruder-during-home-invasion

#7, I wouldn't take bets that the gun has been confiscated. I grew up in that part of the world [Lake Texoma area], and that's a different breed of people down there, different kind of law. Not your typical NYC or LA police force.

Comments after the article are just what I would expect.

Regarding the "family gun" being taken for evidence.

The gun has "fulfilled its destiny." So many guns live out their full existence without ever being called on to save a life or defend a cause.

The family can, and probably will, acquire a new "family gun." Perhaps some of their friends, or even the NRA, can help with the selection and purchase. The girl herself should receive recognition from the police, and range-time for life at a local range.

Too bad she did not have an opportunity to aim for his head or heart. If she had it might ultimately have been harder on her than the way it turned out but society would have certainly been better off.

#8 the law is what we call 'regular law', not the law in DC or NYC. Damn right they'll get their gun back and the local Rotary Club will have the girl and her father to receive an award at their next lunch meeting.

#5, if I had a restaurant, I would have a sign stating "CCW welcome". With regard to the gun being taken as evidence, they will give it back after the case is completely closed out. That is what they normally do.

I doubt seriously the Glock .40 was taken into custody. Both the deputies and the District Attorney praised the young girl for her actions.
Hate to think what would have happened if this happened on the Left Coast or in the NE part of the country!
Mom would be in jail for letting a minor use a pistol. The young girl would be in custody of the juvenile bureau. The thug would be back on the street with a civil suit against the family.

This is where tort reform is critical. In Texas, the perp can no longer sue the home owner if he is in the act of committing a crime. If the perp is killed while committing a crime, the perp's relatives cannot sue.

Tort reform is an excellent way to keep criminals "in check".

EVERY Democrat, including the 'pro-gun' ones are fine with this girl being harmed. It would empower their 'sensible' gun control laws, which are steps toward their ultimate goal of disarming most American citizens. They all work at it one way or another. The ones that vote against any measure that comes up only do so when it does not matter. They would be happy to see a Supreme Court that simply over rides the constitution and makes every armed citizen a criminal.

Maybe you are the unusual human who would not fight with everything you had to protect your life or your family, but if you aren't, arm yourself while you can and stop voting for the politicians who want you to be disposable.

Good. The intruder's motive may not have been just burglary. Too many kidnappings of children are in the news these days.

The war on standards
comes to college debate
Powerline, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Judy W.- 4/19/2014 8:55:55 AM     Post Reply
Paul has been writing about the war on standards in various aspects of our society, generally as a means of advancing the interests of minorities (or purporting to advance them, anyway). Now it appears that the decline of standards–indeed, the abolition of any standards at all–has come to the world of college debate. The Atlantic reports: These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national

(You always hear and read of a “fiasco,” a “defeat” a “disaster” at the Bay of Pigs, 53 years ago this week. But you rarely hear about the cause. Here it is.) "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 53 years ago this week. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting – and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea´s Heartbreak Ridge. But

   

 



 
Federal Land as a Percentage

The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede federal courthouses and even the national parks to the feds, (even though some of the parks were created as a result of brutal land grabs. Shenandoah National Park which I look out at as I write this is an example.) but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government? Here’s another thing I’ll concede. The feds get a few hundred God forsaken square miles in the northern Nevada desert to do nuclear testing and to dump nuclear fuel. Beyond that? People should own this land.

Capitalism and the Dalai Lama
New York Times, by Arthur Brooks    Original Article

What can Washington, D.C., learn from a Buddhist monk? In early 2013, I traveled with two colleagues to Dharamsala, India, to meet with the Dalai Lama. (Snip) That same duality was on display in February when the Dalai Lama joined atwo-day summit at my institution, the American Enterprise Institute. At first, his visit caused confusion. Some people couldn’t imagine why he would visit us; as Vanity Fair asked in a headline, “Why Was the Dalai Lama Hanging Out with the Right-Wing American Enterprise Institute?” There was no dissonance, though, because the Dalai Lama’s teaching defies freighted ideological labels.

Here´s How Long That Teen Would Have

Oh, Portland. A teenager urinated into one of the city’s drinking water reservoirs the other day. That’s gross, sure, and aggravating—what a brat! But in one of the most spectacularly stupid decisions in years, the city is going to drain the reservoir. (Snip) But is it possible to calculate precisely how illogical Portland’s decision is? Let’s try to put some numbers on it. Several smart people on Twitter quickly did the math and figured that a typical urination of about 1/8 gallon in a reservoir of 38 million gallons amounts to a concentration of 3 parts per billion.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
