How Far Would You Go to Protect Your Child?
By Chicks on the Right on January 05, 2012
What would you do if someone was breaking into your house with a 12-inch hunting knife while your three-month-old was in the other room? Would you call 911? Would you shoot the intruder? 18-year-old Sarah McKinley of Oklahoma did both of those things. She called 911 first, asking if she was allowed to shoot him. When the dispatcher told her that she couldn't give her permission, but that she was allowed to protect herself, Sarah chose to shoot the intruder when he finally broke in.
Daisy at Chicks on the Right shares a bit of McKinley's statement and expands upon it. Do you agree?
“I wouldn’t have done it, but it was my son,” McKinley told ABC News Oklahoma City affiliate KOCO. “It’s not an easy decision to make, but it was either going to be him or my son. And it wasn’t going to be my son. There’s nothing more dangerous than a woman with a child.”
Slight “Chicks” correction – there’s nothing more dangerous than a woman with a child, legally and constitutionally armed and able to shoot to kill someone who’s trying to harm her or said child.
