Morning Briefs for Odin's Day Item #1: More Teen Gun Violence

Posted by Gregory of Yardale at June 30, 2010 3:58 AM

A 15-year-old boy and his 12-year-old brother sister were home alone when the 15 year old took out his dad's gun. Tragedy ensued. (Sorry, the original link said brother, it has apparently been amended.)

Did I say tragedy? I meant that other word, heroism.

The boy, 15, and his brother sister, 12, were alone about 2:45 p.m. when someone tried to kick open the front door then soon after the back door of their home in the 2600 block of Royal Place Court, officials said.
When one of the suspected burglars kicked open a window, the boy grabbed a rifle and fired. Both burglars then fled, officials said.
Soon after the shooting, a man showed up at Tomball Methodist Hospital with a gunshot wound. He is being questioned by investigators.
The children were not injured during the ordeal, officials said.

What a disappointment for the anti-gun left. Elena Kagan, Barack Obama, and the liberal wing of the Supreme Court would have preferred to see the boys kids robbed and murdered. That would have made them feel self-righteous in their smug liberal pieties about the joys of a utopia in which law-abiding people are completely disarmed.
