News From 12 YEAR OLD HOME DEFENDER

12-year-old Kendra St. Clair was at home alone in Durant, Okla.
when a man began banging on the front door. Frightened, Kendra
called her mother at work, who told her to retrieve a .40-caliber pistol
and to hide in the bathroom closet.

Kendra complied, and after calling 911, heard the criminal break through a back door.
After about six minutes inside the home, the intruder made it to the bathroom closet
where Kendra was hiding. As the home invader attempted to open the closet,
Kendra fired at the criminal, striking him and causing him to flee.
[I bet he was surprized, in a negative way. David]
Police captured the intruder a short time later and transported him to a hospital.
Following the incident, Kendra’s mother told local media about how her daughter
was coping, stating, “She’s a trooper… She’s staying strong and confident.
She’s handling this much better than I would have.”

When asked about her experience, Kendra told reporters, “I kept my head on straight.”
(The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, Okla. 10/19/12)

@OmSigDAVID,
You couldn't just keep/add this to your earlier thread on this? No, you had to slap up another thread in your ongoing crusade of putting a gun in the hands of every man, woman, child, cat, giraffe, goat, lama, hyena, tortoise, etc. etc.

Earlier thread: 12 year old girl defends her home from invader

Be sure to start a new thread when the shooting victim files a lawsuit and then wins.

I considered that possibility,
but I thawt it 'd get better attention this way.
It got YOUR attention.

It's not so much that I "had to"
as that I deemed it the optimal choice.

The children have no problem with guns,
but I 've felt bad for the giraffes, who I don 't believe
coud handle them properly.

Gun designers shud take their special needs into consideration.

Thanx for your advice.
That 'd be a popular thread, judging by Tom Swift's thread
and Zimmy 's.

Truth be told: I don't believe that ideally, pistols
shud be used when training children in the needs of self defense,
as was described in this story of home defense (tho Kendra had no problem with hers).
Pistols are un-necessarily complex in their operation
and in too many pistols: the rack slide requires too much pressure to draw back.

Revolvers are easier to use and thay are less likely to jam
(to say nothing of the fact that thay are easier to maintain).
