Are You Ready If Someone Breaks Into Your Home?

This is one of those stories that you love to hear.....


On New Year's Eve, 18-year-old Sarah McKinley who lived in Blanchard, Oklahoma, was home with her three-month-old son.  She just buried her husband who died of cancer on Christmas.  

Two men began trying to break into her house:  24-year-old Justin Martin, and 29-year-old Dustin Stewart.  And they had a 12-inch hunting knife.

Sarah grabbed her baby and locked herself in the bedroom.  But not before she grabbed her TWO GUNS . . . a 12-gauge shotgun and a pistol.  Then she called 911.

She the dispatcher, quote, "I'm here by myself with my infant baby . . . I've got two guns in my hand.  Is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?"

The dispatcher gave her the green light: "I can't tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby."

--So, when Martin kicked in the door to the bedroom and went at Sarah with a knife, she SHOT and KILLED HIM with the 12-gauge.

The police have ruled it a justified shooting in self defense. 

In a statement, they said:  "You're allowed to shoot an unauthorized person that is in your home.  The law provides you the remedy, and sanctions the use of deadly force."

These laws can vary state-by-state.  You can see the laws for every state here.)
