Meanwhile, In Texas City, Texas...

...a 15-year-old girl armed with a handgun chased off two burglars that were ransacking her house:

A 15-year-old-girl turned the tables on a pair of intruders early Saturday afternoon.

At 12:52 p.m., Texas City police received a call from the girl saying there was somebody trying to get into her house in the 7300 block of Meadowlark.

“She was home by herself in the bathroom and when she called — she was hysterical,” police Capt. Brian Goetschius said.

The teen said she heard the front door jiggle and when she looked out, she saw two men standing there, Goetschius said.

The girl called her father, her aunt and the police. Then she got her father’s handgun and went outside, Goetschius said.

One of the men had gone into the garage and was attempting to steal a pickup. The girl did not know where the other one was.

She confronted the man in the garage and he ran away, heading east on Meadowlark. He was followed by his accomplice, who had been inside, searching the house, Goetschius said.

“It had been ransacked,” the captain said.

Click to read the rest. If the Brady Campaign To End Handgun Ownership Violence had its way, the little girl would probably have been discovered by the two burglars, and quite possibly raped or even killed. And that would have been fine with the Bradies, as long as the victim wasn't allowed to own one of those evil guns. It's amazing, too, that it wasn't taken away from her and used against her, that's what the anti-gun people always say happens. It's also amazing she's still alive with a gun in the house at all, because to listen to the hoplophobes a gun in the house almost invariably leads to a "tragic accident."
