Kids & Guns the Right Way

This from Corpus Christi's
It happened Monday afternoon at a home in the 4200 block of Ocean Drive. A 14-year-old boy shot and killed a man who broke into his family's home Monday and threatened to kill him and his mother, Police Chief Bryan Smith said.

Smith said the man, confronted a woman as she was carrying groceries into her home shortly before 1 p.m. The man forced her inside and tied her and her son up. Smith said the woman was able to loosen the binding and free her son, who got his father's revolver from a security box beneath a bed.

As the man tried to break into the room where the two were and threatened to kill them both, the teen fired a shot through the door and hit the intruder in the head, Smith said.
Funny, but you probably haven't heard anything about this story in the MSM, since it's an article of faith that young people are only marginally more competent that a parakeet. There was a letter in this morning's Denver "ECHOES OF COLUMBINE!!!" POST wailing and moaning about the very idea that young people should learn self-defense skills as a part of their phys-ed program. Much better to have them polishing their jump-rope skills, which will serve them better later in life.

Not to jump around content-wise, but I thought today might be an excellent day to purchase some more "normal" capacity magazines for my ARs, as well as some 20-rounders for the SIG-226 and 33-rounders for the 9mm Glocks. We're 30 days out from the election...lots of things can happen in 30 days, but if things go south and the Dems pull off a 1994-style sweep, I believe a brand spanking new Assault Weapons Ban will be right at the top of the "new, gun-friendly Democrats" agenda. And remember, Bush said he'd sign an AWB is Congress passed it...

At the very least, a Dem sweep will probably be reflected in high-capacity magazine has before, remember. Besides, we all really need more magazines, and magazine prices have never been lower! The darn things wear out...or at least mine do when I step on them.
