    Bower could be right, maybe a simple scream would have frightened off the burglars. All I can say is that I'm thankful her parents don't have to answer that question.

    Yeah, so what? So what that this 11 yr old girl survived from being very possibly raped and killed by 3 male thugs who broke into her home when she was alone......so according to you, this is just trivial stuff. her life is no big deal, huh? Typical lib..........

    There are negligent parents and b/c of their negligence, a child can die.

    Then there's responsible parents who will teach their child(ren) how to protect themselves, such as in this case.........

    A child is at a much much higher risk just having a gun in the house - that is why the AAP recommend that the only "safe" house is one without guns

    Sure. And deaths by drowning and slipping are almost zero in houses without bath tubs. If you have a firearm, you have a responsibility to using and storing it safely.

    Clearly there is no talking to you, you only see it one way and one way only.
    But hate all you want, there is a very good chance that the girl in question is only alive and well because of that gun.
    Same with hundreds of other people all over the country, alive and well today because they were armed.
    And the next time you decide what is best for the US, I suggest you come live here.

    no, for the most part im very right considering liberals in this country want the leagl citizen either seriously limited or simply stripped of their guns.

    Ah, the old, I'm just going to change "background checks" into "stripped of their guns" and act like there is no difference.

    Uh huh.... yeah....right. So you're saying this 11 yr old girl would have been safer if there hadn't been a rifle in her house when those 3 thugs broke in and she was left totally defenseless?

    Why can't you libs get it into your heads that there are responsible kids out there? Not long ago there was a thread about a 14 yr old boy home alone w/his younger sister when thugs broke into their home. Because his dad had a firearm and he was taught how to use it, they lived to talk about it..... but apparently you don't think these kids who are 'home alone' survivors of home invasions are important.....

    When I was a country kid b/t 10 -14 yrs old, my dad & brother taught me how to handle a rifle.....under their supervision, I did a lot of practicing and I also knew where their rifles were, which I never touched w/o their permission and them w/me - their very strict instructions, which I respected and also didn't want to have a problem w/o dad or bro w/me....

    But when I got older and would be home alone in the country, the nearest neighbor 2-3 miles away - if I had a problem w/a stranger suddenly there, I had protection.......and it's the same thing w/these kids now who are responsible enuf to handle a firearm.......why can't you understand that?

    "The only safe house is one w/o guns"...... well, wouldn't the home invaders be tickled pink if that was the law........

    no not at all, im not even talking about background checks. Im talking about the sentiment in NY where they are TELLING you that you cant have more than 7 rounds, or democrats in Missouri trying to pass legislation to make law abiding citizens turn in their guns, or like in Colorado's extremely new restrictive new gun legislation.

    im all for background checks so you cant even attempt to use that against me. what i wish democrats were for is to seriously crack down on those illegally buying/selling/owning a gun illegally. but na, that would mean to attack too many possible liberal voters so thats out of the question.

    Start enforcing the back ground checks that are already on the books first. Not write a new improved more restrictive one.

    The AAP are the ones who have number crunched and I believe them
    http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2012/10/15/peds.2012-2481.full.pdf+html

    This always reminds me of the seat belt controversy when the laws were first enacted there were those who screamed that if you drove off a bridge into a river a seat belt might stop you from escaping. Armed intrusion into homes is not as common as being shot in a domestic argument

    You keep forgetting these are 3 thugs who broke into her home and found an 11 yr old girl all alone......

    Your suggestions for how she could have saved herself, if unarmed, is really brilliant......

    Her running to a door to escape. And you really think they would have let her go, since she could identify them to LEO?

    Screaming her head off? You really think they would have let her do that to attract outside attention?

    Throwing kitchen utensils? Wow.... that would have really scared them. One of the thugs could have picked up a kitchen knife and she would have been at their mercy......

    And of course, you want to give the 3 thugs kudos for being unarmed. For an 11 yr old girl facing 3 strange males in her house, even if they were unarmed, meant she was in danger... but you just don't get that, do you?

    You must have lived one pampered, sheltered life b/c you have no clue about life.... you read a few statistics and think you know it all....

    And you obviously don't have any kids..... no mother would be that casual about an 11 yr old girl caught alone w/3 male criminals in her home and be critical about her having access to a weapon...

    As far as her injuring/killing one - better him than her... and therapy would help her recover from the trauma.

    And as I said THIS IS A RARE EVENT. Just having that there is no evidence the crooks were armed - there is evidence they wanted to steal guns from the home and there is also no evidence that they saw her with a gun

    The NRA has really done a job on you Americans hash't it? No matter the facts of the case you believe it is the SAME STORY - defenceless girl going to be raped without a gun

    There is no indication of that in this story

    Yes, they could get deported to Australia if they are caught telling a lie.

    And you're absolutely SURE about that? How would you know? If they didn't break into the house to rob it, why did they break in?

    Calm down. The girl said her cousin or someone was w/her and they ran over to the store.....

    An 11 yr old being home for an hr or so during the daytime is ok, but it depends upon her maturity.....

    Why don't you watch the girl's interview? She SAID her cousin or someone was w/her, but they ran over to the store and would be right back......

    An 11 yr old is already half-grown and depending upon her maturity, many can be left alone for a few hours or less during the daytime....

    Did you give any tho't to what could have happened to this girl if she had not had access to a rifle? Or doesn't that matter?

    You'd rather bash on her parents instead of the criminals, huh? Got it!

    Can we get back to basics here? This topic IS about this case. Many kids have had firearms training and safety by their parents and b/c of that, they were able to save their own lives..... like this 11 yr old girl suddenly facing 3 criminals who broke into her home.

    So are you saying there was no benefit in her parent training her in how to use a firearm? The girl is alive and well...... whadda think?
