15 Year Old Girl Barricaded Herself in Bathroom With Gun When Shotgun Wielding Men Tried to Break In
We aren’t going to call this one a defensive gun use since it sounds like the gun didn’t play a role in stopping the crime, but it is a good example of a teenager exercising good judgement.
A fifteen year old girl near McDavid, FL was home alone when she saw men armed with shotguns banging on the door of the home.
Fortunately, it seems that the men fled once they realized someone was home, but the girl wasn’t taking any chances.
She grabbed a phone and a gun before she barricaded herself in one of the home’s bathrooms.
A comment left on the article published on NorthEscambia.com seems to be from the girl’s mother. It reads,
I am very proud of my daughter. She did all the right things even under pressure. Her daddy has taught all of our children how to use guns properly and gun safety is his number one concern.
We have taught them how to protect themselves at a very young age.
If your children are going to be home alone it is imperative they know proper gun safety and know what to do should a potentially violent situation arise.
