    Mom instructed her daughter well! Hope the girl wasn't traumatized by the whole affair. Brava!

    Good for her (both hers) they did the exact right thing
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    It's sad that a 12 year old has to be put in a situation where deadly force is needed.

    It's about the most acceptable outcome but sure not fantastic for the girl. Kids grow up too fast as it is now.

    Actually, I thought about that too... And then, I realized the girl was in the closet, door closed... And pulled the trigger when the knob started turning... She's likely to have some hearing loss.. But she may not have seen anything. I think there will be less emotional trauma for her...

    I hope the "family gun" was an "evil black assault Glock AK 47 rifle automatic gun" with a "super super high capacity drum clip" that was purchased at an internet loophole gun show!

    I just now was able to watch the video... Apparently the perp was arrested before for abducting a young lady of "diminished mental capacity."

    This young 12 year old averted a much greater trauma.

    Wow! Her mom is proud! And rightfully so!

    I'm betting MOM ... is still trying to absorb what happened.

    The girl, should be patted on the back and praised for protecting herself.

    Glad she did what mom said to do, and protected herself in the process.

    I'm glad that the "FAMILY" gun was not locked in a safe that the girl didn't have access to. The young lady did an excellent job and mom should be very happy and proud.

    Good training by Mom, daughter knew where gun was and how and when to use it.

    Sounds like BOTH of them couldn't have handled it any better. Props to mom for telling the daughter to hang up and call 911, I can see a lot of moms not being as willing to let their kid of the phone and be left wondering what was going on. Sad that it needed to happen, but glad that it happened like it did!

    ETA: This is food for thought for the camp that thinks guns shouldn't be accessible or loaded with children in the house. How quickly do you think the girl could have opened a safe, gotten the gun and ammo, loaded it, turned off the safety, etc., if even at all?

    Sooooo true! And, this article proves that properly taught, an appropriately aged child with access to guns in the home that aren't locked up, are not a risk to themselves or friends... but certainly are a deterrent to criminals.

    Here's an update. Picture of the girl, the perp, and the bullet hole from the .40 caliber Glock.
