HOUSTON – The teenage son of a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy shot a home intruder Tuesday afternoon in the 2600 block of Royal Place in northwest Harris County, deputies said.
The 15-year-old boy and his 12-year-old sister had been home alone in the Mount Royal Village subdivision when around 2:30 p.m. a pair of burglars tried the front and back doors, then broke a back window.
The teenager grabbed his father's assault rifle and knew what to do with it. “We don't try to hide things from our children in law enforcement,” Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said.
“That young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.”
The home invaders fled, leaving a trail of blood. KHOU.com (Link updated!!!)

It will be impossible for gun control promoters to admit that a teenager used an assault rifle to protect himself and his little sister. They will probably label him a "racist" or "monster" or just dismiss the incident and return to agenda as usual.
Since the main stream media won't pick this up, it shouldn't be much of a distraction for their cause.
The problem with having an honest, open debate is that we don't hear how many people are saved using a firearm for protection. If they did, I fear the numbers would favor leaving the weapons in place... DC
