With all that goes into the Left’s attacks against the Second Amendment, gun owners, and the advancement of new gun laws, it’s always good to read a story where the point is made of just how good it is for individuals to own a weapon. This story is a bout a 12 year-old-girl who shot and wounded a man who had kicked in the back door of her home!
Kendra St. Clair, who lives in Bryan County, told Oklahoma City television station KWTV that the stranger rang her doorbell and then went around her house to the back. He then proceeded to kick in the door.
The young girl quickly called her mother, who told her to get the family’s gun. She then went and hid in the closet. As the man entered the room where she was hiding and began to turn the door knob of the closet, the girl opened fire.
“I heard the bathroom light turn on that was leading to the closet,” she explained. “And when I saw the door handle turn, I shot him.”
According to authorities Clair hit Jones in the chest with a .40 caliber bullet from a Glock pistol.
“I kept my head on straight,” Kendra said, even though she was terrified.
Kendra’s mother said that she usually doesn’t leave her children home alone, but has to on occasion as a single mother of two with a full-time job.
Police say the man, Stacey Jones, 32, was taken to the hospital and then to the Bryan County Jail. His bail was set at $250,000 on Friday. His court date is set for December.
“I was told by the police that he had been homeless for 10 days and that he might have been looking for food,” said Debra. “I would hate it if I knew he was watching her.”
Clair had never fired a gun before, but apparently she did the proper thing and shoot towards center mass. Yes she was behind a door, but apparently able to aim for the general vicinity and was able to save herself and aid the police in catching the bad guy!
This should inspire all parents to teach their kids proper gun safety and handling of a firearm. You never know when they will need it. Kudos to Kendra!
