Mom Exchanges Gunfire with Would-Be Thief

Maybe we would hear more coverage and see more stories like these in the headlines if the media and press weren’t so heavily influenced.

Perhaps more positive publicity about guns and gun safety would change the thinking of an entire nation about gun control. Those are a bunch of what ifs.

This is about what happened to a mom and her young son on the morning of April 10th, and the facts.

According to a news release from law enforcement, an early morning break-in attempt this past Wednesday was thwarted by the mother of a 10-year-old boy.

The scene isn’t one that would be hard for any of us to imagine and is probably a false alarm nearly everyone has experienced, but this wasn’t a false alarm.

You’ve been there, awakened at three in the morning by that indistinguishable sound, a thud, or thump or click?

Of course, when possible and safe, our first step is to dial those three emergency digits -911. What happens next, matters even more.

In this case, a mom who bears arms did exactly that. Based on the report from the North Carolina Burlington Police Department, neither the mother or her child were hurt. The armed burglar, following an exchange of gunfire with the mother, left through the window that was broken when the assailant entered the home.

If gun rights supporters and Second Amendment defenders begin facing restrictions and invasive regulation, stories like the one above could have ended much differently.

This isn’t an issue of wanting gun safety, and no group will advocate harder for gun safety than those very same gun rights supporters.

Laws that intend to govern facets such as gun styles, grips, and countless other features are not viable options. Obtaining a gun shouldn’t be so difficult that a mother can’t purchase a gun to protect her family.

The additional burdens, processes, and guidelines suggested by some who support gun restriction type regulation and laws, don’t help mom. In fact, they wouldn’t be helping anyone, except perhaps the criminal who may or may not be using the legal methods to obtain a weapon.

And don’t think that these gun control efforts aren’t being attempted all the time. In a rather sad but ironic twist, according to a report from the NRA, that very day April 10, 2019, the Delaware Senate introduced not one but multiple gun control bills.

If you read us, you will likely recall seeing many other types of various gun control legislation being discussed.

This is an ongoing battle, and it is about protecting our Second Amendment rights and keeping our families safe. These attempts at gun control threaten both, and so much more.

What happened to that mother on that frightening night is both, a bullet in the gun for those aiming to fight for gun ownership rights and a warning against laws that restrict gun ownership.

The people who run gun stores and operate gun businesses don’t have any desire to sell weapons to criminals. No more than a bar owner wants to serve someone with a drinking problem.

If the person with bad intentions uses that gun to hurt someone, or if the individual who drank too much decides to get behind the wheel – there is only so much the owner can be held accountable for;

At some point, those who choose to break the law must be held responsible.

The answer isn’t changing alcohol or how it is served, no more than the answer to gun control or gun safety is about the type of weapon or its features. If legislation that acts to restrict the rights of gun owners ever becomes law, mom and her young son will have to hide and hope.

What if the process to obtain a firearm became so burdened, tedious and long that mom, who has to manage her son’s busy activities, work a full-time job (and overtime), handle the bills, the groceries and everything else, realistically couldn’t get one.

What if that same burglar decided to not stop in the kitchen? What if he searched the house for valuables, and found that mother and her child?

Those are quite a few what if’s… but the facts are this, mom can get a firearm, did get a firearm and mom and her son are alive and safe… because of it.


  1. Does anybody wonder where is all this bad press on firearms come from? Just a few years ago pick up trucks had gun racks in there back windows! No more!
    The MSM has a vendetta of guns, who is the MSM? It’s people, who have come out of our educational system. As kids in our schools having one or two teachers filling their minds with lies day in and day out. Every day 10,000 kids turn 18, fact. At this rate not only will we lose our guns, but we will lose our America. No one seems to understand this or care.
