Smart (brilliant!) #4
This kid gets 4 out of 4 smart moves. Firing first without hesitating was a very mature move — I hope this is from his parents teaching him about guns starting when he was young.
We even have to give another point for aim. When you are upstairs shooting at what we presume is a moving target, critically wounding is pretty good aim!
If I was this kid’s parents I would be swollen up with pride!
Yep, fine shooting kid. I'm proud when my 12 year old has the good aim not to splatter the toilet.
Darn right I’d be proud of him if he was my son! That kid can come and babysit my kids any day of the week.
This kid did everything right. Kudos to him for protecting himself and his family, and for disabling this criminal.
These is a great teachable moment for all parents what to teach their oldest children what to do in case of such a situation.
This young man must have great parents.
Putting the Constitution into action - SOLO!
Something the good old boys TOGETHER couldn’t do with the imposter, BO, the thief who broke into our system, and has stolen the goods of America.
Why do I get the feeling that this kid does not look as if he could be the spawn of “The Zoro”?
If I was this kids parents I would be swollen up with pride!
I fully expect the district attorney to file charges against the parents. This child should never have had access to a loaded gun in the home. Any gun in the house should have been locked up in one place and the ammo in another, also locked. The boy should have called 911 and waited for the police. /s
But...stupid #1: The doctors, who are probably slapping themselves on the after performing another “miracle”, and tallying up the bill...which, of course, we will pay, because the odds of this guy having insurance is somewhere between absolutely none and zero. I think that putting a band-aid on it and hoping for the best would have been sufficient.
To those that say, “bad shooting”, I would give this “boy”, more of a man than many men, MASSIVE slack in this area. If needed, I hope that I have the maturity and wits to perform that well in a life or death crisis.
