postheadericon “I Had To Take Care Of Things”: Mother Scares Off Intruder With Her Gun

HOUSTON, TX — One mom whose husband was out of town and whose infant daughter was counting solely on her the Thursday before Christmas knew exactly what to do when her home was attacked.

She produced her Equalizer, and sent the bad guy packing.

She didn’t even need to pull the trigger, either.

As KSAT reports:

The mother was at home with the family’s 3-month-old daughter Thursday night. Her husband was out of town working, but was coming home Friday to celebrate the first Christmas with their daughter.

After tossing and turning in bed for a while, the mother was not able to fall asleep and went to the living room around 11:30 p.m. About an hour later, she heard the home alarm beep and her back door open. Her instinct kicked in.

“I froze for a second and then I realized I needed to spring into action, I mean, I had my baby in the house. I was alone. My husband was away on business, so I had to take care of things,” she said.

She grabbed a gun and went towards the back door, where she found a man standing in her kitchen. She yelled at the man while pointing the gun at him, and her dog ran towards him, scaring him out of the back door.

She locked the door and called 911.

Houston authorities were on the scene in minutes.

She had to take care of things, and she did. I have no doubt she was terrified — anyone with sense would be.

But she came through — that’s about the definition of courage.

When you’re out, whether you’re a man or a woman, make sure your partner knows how to defend your shared home.

postheadericon TAKE ACTION: National Reciprocity Bill Now Has More Than 80 Cosponsors

What if you, the concealed carrier, could travel throughout all fifty states without worrying about whether a state acknowledged your permit? That question may be answered as soon as a recent House Bill clears its subcommittees and garners enough support to go to the floor.

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015 is a bill currently in the sponsoring stages in the House of Representatives. As of March 16th, it is sitting inside the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations. This is one of the vetting stages needed to pass before a bill will hit the floor of the House.

For the first time, Congress looks like it’s willing to make a concerted effort to propose legislation which would save concealed carriers from being charged as criminals should they wander across the border into a state that does not acknowledge their permit’s validity.

Have you contacted your House Representative and told him or her you’re on board?

If you’ve followed Concealed Nation for awhile, you likely have read your fair share of stories of concealed carriers unwittingly crossing over into New Jersey and fighting to stay out of prison. While Gov. Chris Christie promised reform to those types of restrictions, we’ve sat back and watched as the New Jersey legislature has systematically dismantled any attempt to actually do so.

In the meantime, concealed carriers are being prosecuted for violating gun laws disconnected from any actual threat that the concealed carrier posed to the public.

While we always advocate safety, responsibility, and a knowledge of the law, we’ve been stuck with a very convoluted system of managing reciprocity for concealed carry licenses. At present, you have to do quite a bit of research just to see what states you can drive through without violating some state’s law. Concealed Carry Reciprocity maps certainly help as a general guide, but when you’re faced with potentially losing your home, vehicle, and children’s future because California (or Maryland, New Jersey, Hawaii, etc.) doesn’t acknowledge a person’s right to keep and bear arms — that’s ridiculous and constitutionally wrong.

So maybe it’s time we pass a national reciprocity bill that requires all states to acknowledge each other — even permitless carry states. So long as the bill doesn’t get twisted into some sort of convoluted mess, this could signal a giant leap forward in helping responsible, concealed carriers travel freely and without impediment throughout our great country.

Step up. Call or email your House Representative and tell him you’re on board and he should be, too!
