A St. Louis, MO man found himself in an ugly situation when a pair of armed thugs took his teenaged daughter hostage with a gun to her head and tried to force themselves inside the house. The father, a gun owner, opened fire on the perps, and killed one DRT; the other badguy drove off in the getaway car but eventually had to check into the hospital with grievous chest and leg wounds. The mother also accessed a firearm and fired one shot.
While the situation’s likelihood of happening is low, this is absolutely every parent’s worst nightmare. Could you make the shot? Does your family have a plan to counter armed intruders? Does your spouse/SO know how to use a firearm? Even basic planning will go a long ways towards defending yourself and your family from a similar threat.
