    Does anyone know if this story is true?

    I was emailed this news story, does anyone know if it is true? I hope so.

    Shooting in Butte, Montana
    Shotgun preteen vs. illegal alien Home Invaders:

    Butte, Montana November 5, 2007

    Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.

    It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine.

    Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. Sh e quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

    Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old's knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.

    When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.

    It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

    Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news........an 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself......against two murderous, illegal immigrants......and she wins, she is still alive.

    Now that is Gun Control !

    I'm about 80% sure this story is bogus. I've heard different variations of it... but think it seems a little off. The one I heard the clay shooting bit wasn't there.

    According to the Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff's department in Montana, this never took place.

    It's false. Here's a link to Snopes.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
