13 Year Old Armed With Ruger 10/22 Saves His Mother From Trespasser Thought to be on Drugs

Last night we had a man on drugs wander into our yard. I was telling him to leave when he turned on me, threw his hat on the ground, and came at me.

Luckily, my 13 year old grabbed his Ruger 10/22. He did not have to fire. The [sight of the] gun stopped the man in his tracks and he turned and ran. During all of this my 15 year old daughter had called 911. The cops didn’t show until almost 8 minutes AFTER the man took off.

If my son had not done what he did, I have no doubt I would have been injured or killed along with my three kids. Proud of my boy. We are proud gun owners and always will be.

No one was hurt during the incident and we are currently working on getting a copy of the police report.

This incident is the most common type of defensive gun use. That is, one in which no shots were fired and no one was hurt. Despite this being the most...

  1. He's probably already been labeled a terrorist and expelled from school before it even starts!! Even when school does open they will schedule him for counseling and evaluation.

    1. Naw, he'll be alright. This happened in Texas.

      Look at the kid's haircut and what's on his shirt. That bad guy is lucky the kid didn't shoot and bury him before the cops got there.

    2. Maybe we should send him to the border and substitute that 22 for a 308 Lapua

  2. Showing proper trigger discipline too. Parenting done right for a change. Oh wait, this is Texas. Normal parenting proves it's value. Again.
