Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Detroit Mom Wields “Assault Rifle” Edition


It’s amazing, astounding really that the’s printed version of their TV report [click on screen cap to see it] doesn’t mention the fact that the “brave Mom” defending her brood against home invaders ended the attack with an “assault rifle.” The video report calls it “this rifle.” Of course, CNN chat show host and rabid anti-gunner Piers Morgan will highlight the weapon wielded for this defensive gun use on tonight’s show, admitting that “I was wrong to say that Americans never use assault rifles for self-defense.” Or not. Here’s what happened . . .

The mother tells Action News she “didn’t have time to get scared.” When she heard the door to her home on Woodrow Wilson being kicked in, she immediately warned the three teenage intruders and then opened fire.

One of the teens dropped a handgun on his way out the door. He then tried to get back inside the house a second time, but was again met with gunfire. Once again, he took off and all three were arrested shortly after the incident by Detroit Police.

Recalling the panic she felt, the mom says “I let them know I had a gun once they were in the house. They said no you don’t so I shot off the first round. I wasn’t feeling anything at the moment, I got scared afterwards.”

One wonders how the antis will spin this AR-style defensive gun use. More likely they’ll just ignore it.
