The boy and his six-year-old sister hid unnoticed in the locked bathroom while the suspects threatened his mother and father at gunpoint. "There's some guy who's going to kill my mom and dad," he said breathlessly. "Bring cops. A lot of them! ... And soldiers, too."
When the men found the boy, and realized he had called 911, they fled. They are still at large.
You have to wonder how Daddy felt afterwards, that instead of he being able to defend his family, the task was left to his grade school aged son.
We’ve lost something in this country as a people. There was a day when we stood up for what we believed and ferociously DEFENDED what was precious to us, like our families, our freedoms and our country.
The American male has been emasculated by popular progressive culture, believing it’s wrong to stand up and fight for your beliefs, but rather to be a passive victim, hoping for benevolence from those who would persecute us.
It would probably be a safe bet that this father neither owned a firearm nor probably believed he should. He probably has house insurance, health insurance, flood insurance, car insurance, but no way to ensure the lives of his family from marauding scum who almost certainly would have robbed, raped and possibly murdered his family, had it not been for his young son’s heroic actions.
Some may say, “Hey, it turned out fine and no one got hurt.” True, it did. They may also say, “If the Dad had a gun, it just would have meant he might have been shot going up against three armed invaders.” Also, true. However, I wouldn’t want to go to Las Vegas on the odds that the next time things would turn out to be so lucky. In most cases, people are usually robbed, savaged, and frequently killed during these attacks.
There was a day in this country when gangs of punks would never have considered a “home invasion” style attack on a family, knowing they would probably be met with certain injury or death. That threat still exists in isolated pockets of this country, usually where there are less restrictive gun laws, where law-abiding citizens still have the right to own a firearm AND who still have the right to defend themselves when threatened.
It may sound harsh, but I am of the belief that any parent who refuses to take the necessary precautions to protect his family from such harm, borders on criminal neglect.
