…with Mom’s Glock.
You can listen to the 911 call and the dispatcher instruct her to hold on to the gun until the police arrive. Good advice.
Kudos to the mom for teaching her kid how to shoot the gun and having it available in case it was needed.
Now if that was California, the mom would be up on charges for having the gun available to the child.

Think I’m BSin on the California law?
I’ll post it after the story.

DURANT — A 12-year-old girl said she never had fired a gun before she took aim at an intruder while home alone this week.

“I had to do what I had to do,” Kendra St. Clair said Friday. “I was scared out of my mind.”

Kendra used her mother’s handgun to shoot the intruder Wednesday while she was home on fall break. Her mother had shown her how to shoot it, she said.

“Normally I do not leave my kids at home alone,” Debra St. Clair said. “But being a single mother of two with a full-time job, I had to that day.”

Her son attends a different school, which was not on fall break.


From the California State Attorney’s Office:

You may be guilty of a misdemeanor or a felony if you keep a loaded firearm within any premises that are under your custody or control and a child under 18 years of age obtains and uses it, resulting in injury or death, or carries it to a public place, unless you stored the firearm in a locked container or locked the firearm with a locking device to temporarily keep it from functioning.

Over half that page talks about guns and child safety, but never mentions they can use one in self defense in the home.
