While Democrats are fighting to take guns away from law abiding American citizens, one Florida mother just reaffirmed the need for the right to own guns, when she used an AR-15 to save her family from intruders.
The eight-month pregnant mother wielded the rifle to save her husband and pre-teen daughter from the pair of intruders who had broken into the family’s home.
The mother opened fire on one of the intruders, fatally striking him and he was later found dead in a nearby ditch after trying to escape.
Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.
“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”
King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself on the wrong end of the home intruder’s weapon.
The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.
“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”
The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his crime partner was shot.
“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me,” King said, noting he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion, and needed “20 stitches and three staples in my head.”
Democrats don’t want Americans like these to have these life saving tools. Without the AR-15 to protect the pregnant woman and her family, the intruders may have likely killed all of them.
Former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke famously campaigned on the premise that he was going to come and take our AR-15s “or else”.
While his lackluster campaign ultimately fizzled out, the notion of taking AR-15s still runs rampant among Democrats.
ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested on Monday that Democrats should wait until they are elected into public office before they reveal to the American people their true political intentions.
“They should not tell everything they’re going to do,” Behar said. “Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”
When will Democrats learn? Americans will never just give up their guns. The push to confiscate them could even bring about our next civil war.
