14yr Old Shoots Armed Intruder While Babysitting

The importance of teaching firearms safety to our children can not be overstated. Personally, I think ever grade school should have a class devoted to firearms safety and marksmanship. In my opinion, the boy scouts don’t even teach firearms safety enough, but I digress. Here is a great reason to teach your children the basics of firearms ownership and usage:

A 14-year-old boy shot and nearly killed an intruder who broke into his Phoenix home and pulled a gun on him while he was watching his three younger siblings, police said Saturday.

The teen and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were at home alone when a woman rang the doorbell on Friday. A common enough occurrence, the boy still chose not to open the door because he didn’t recognize the woman.
