President Barack Obama and the rest of the liberals are doing everything they can to outlaw assault-style weapons. They claim they have no purpose except to shoot innocent people and that they have no place in any American home.
Tell that to a teenage boy in Houston, Texas.
Tuesday, June 29, 2010, in a quiet cul-de-sac in Houston Texas the 15-year-old boy and his 13-year-old sister were home alone believing that they were safe. Suddenly a pair of strangers tried to gain entrance to the house through the front door, but found it locked. Next the strangers tried the back door and again found it locked. Then they broke in through a back window only to be greeted by the 15-year-old boy holding his father’s AR-15 assault-style rifle. Fearing for the safety of his sister and himself, the teenager opened fire on the two suspects, who fled the house as quickly as they could.
The boy immediately called his father who was a deputy constable in Harris County Precinct 1. A short time later an adult male and a juvenile showed up at Tomball hospital. The adult male was reported to have had at least three bullet wounds that were serious enough to warrant him being transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital. The juvenile was taken back to the crime scene to be identified and arrested.
It turns out that this house wasn’t the first targeted in the cul-de-sac by the burglars, but it will definitely be there last. Police believe it was the same pair of burglars who had broken into a house next-door and stolen nearly everything they could carry.
Lieutenant Jeffrey Stauber told reporters:
“We don’t try to hide things from our children in law enforcement. That young boy he was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.”
Even though this incident took place two and half years ago, it’s an excellent example of how effective an assault style weapon can be to defend one’s home the hands of someone who knows how to use it. According to the reports the 15-year-old boy had been well-trained and knew how to use the rifle. I’m sure the two burglars felt a lot more intimidated looking down the barrel of an AR-15 than they would have looking down the barrel of an ordinary rifle or handgun.
So Mr. President, assault-rifles do save innocent lives and protect homeowners and their families and you’ll never convince that Houston family otherwise. So please take your anti-gun and anti-Constitution ways and try them out in your own country Kenya and leave our country alone!
