An 11 Year-Old Demonstrates Gun Control: “Not Only Good Judgment But Also Good Marksmanship, Striking Only the Intended and Lawful Target”

Editor’s Note: Does the Constitution give an 11 year-old boy the right to bear arms and defend himself and his loved ones? The immediate answer from the anti-gun crowd would be a resounding “no.” But what if he so happened to be at home alone with his 4 year-old sister when two individuals attempted to break into his house not one or twice, but three times? Karl Denninger of the Market Ticker weighs in.

Gun Control Success — BS Immediately Follows
By Karl Denninger

There’s both an impressive and outrageous angle to this story.

An 11-year-old Missouri boy shot and killed a 16-year-old boy during an attempted home invasion Thursday afternoon, St. Louis County police said.

Police said two suspects tried to break into the home north of downtown St. Louis twice before the shooting on Thursday. On the third try, authorities said the unidentified teen went through the home’s unlocked front door while the 11-year-old and a 4-year-old girl were home alone.Police said the younger boy shot the teen in the head. The would-be burglar’s body was found in the home’s front foyer.

Good shot.

One round, one bad guy stopped in the commission of a forcible felony, and who knows what other felonies were on his mind given that there was a 4 year old girl in the house at the time. The two home invaders apparently were quite-persistent as well since reports are that they made three attempts to break in.

Fox2Now reported that police want to know why the children were home alone and why the 11-year-old had access to a gun. Police believe the mother bought the gun after prior break-in attempts.

In other words since the cops couldn’t do their ****ing job now we’re going to try to find some reason to hang the mother.

Look, I get it — generally-speaking it’s a bad idea for kids to have access to firearms as such does sometimes lead to horrifying accidents. But — and this is important, the right to keep and bear arms doesn’t have an age limit and neither does your right to defend your own life or the life of those you love. This 11 year old did exactly that using the only device known to man that equalizes an 11 year old boy and a 16 year old thug who was vastly superior on a physical basis, exactly as it does when a thug assaults grandma.

Go ahead and punish those who act irresponsibly — that is, where someone’s decision in this regard leads to a bad outcome that can rationally be determined to have occurred due to negligence. If someone’s decision to leave a firearm accessible to a minor leads to them doing a bad thing, whether criminally or negligently, then come down on the adult(s) involved like a falling piano — they deserve it.

But no such thing occurred here. This young man demonstrated not only good judgment but also good marksmanship, striking only the intended and lawful target with his round. He selected the only effective means of stopping the invader, he deployed that tool with an appropriate amount of skill and no innocent person was injured nor was property damaged, beyond the need to clean up the mess necessarily produced as the side effect of his lawful stop of a forcible felony, as a result of his decision to do so.


Leave his family, his sister and his mother alone.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. Nice shooting young man. You and your mother should be awarded a medal for ridding this world of a scum swallowing criminal. The thug played a stupid game and he won the stupid prize. Good job mom for teaching your son proper gun safety and control.

    My granddaughter has been coming to the range with her parents and I since she was two years old. When she turns five, we will let her shoot if she wants. As soon as she can take apart a .22 and put it back together, plus demonstrate proper gun safety and recite our Second Amendment, grandpa will be buying her her own firearm. That is the way I was raised, my sons were raised and my grandkids will be raised.

    To date, none of our firearms have run out of the house and shot someone.
