Mama Grizzley, Okie Style - Teen Mom Blows Away Intruder Who Tried To Break In

Now, this story made me smile..

A young 18-year-old teen mother in Oklahoma City took out an intruder to protect herself and her 3-month-old baby on New Year's Eve, less than a week after the baby's father died of cancer.

Sarah McKinley said that on Christmas Day, the same day of her husband's funeral, a man later identified as Justin Martin dropped by, claiming that he was a neighbor who just wanted to say hello. Mrs. McKinley didn't fall for that and refused to let him in.

On New Year's Eve Martin returned with another man, Dustin Stewart, and this time was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife. They'd obviously been scoping things out and knew Mrs. Mckinley was alone in the house with her baby, so the scum began trying to break in, figuring she was an easy mark.

She wasn't. Sarah McKinley grabbed her trusty 12 gauge, her baby and a bottle, headed for her bedroom and called 911.
"I've got two guns in my hand -- is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?" the young mother asked the 911 dispatcher. "I'm here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?"

The 911 dispatcher confirmed with McKinley that the doors to her home were locked as she asked again if it was okay to shoot if the intruder were to come through her door.

"I can't tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby," the dispatcher told her.

So when Martin kicked in her bedroom door and came after her with the knife she shot and killed him. His partner ran away and turned himself in to the police later.

Since this is Oklahoma and not Lotus Land, the cops are calling it justifiable homicide and no charges will be filed.

"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," Det. Dan Huff of the Blanchard police said.

"I wouldn't have done it, but it was my son," McKinley told ABC News Oklahoma City affiliate KOCO. "It's not an easy decision to make, but it was either going to be him or my son. And it wasn't going to be my son. There's nothing more dangerous than a woman with a child."

Mrs. McKinley, you are one stand up, heroic woman and I have a feeling that as soon as you're ready, some upstanding example of manhood is going to propose and take you off the market. Oklahoma, OK!

Remember this story the next time some politician in a gated estate with armed bodyguards or 24/7 Secret Service or state trooper protection tries to talk you into disarming yourself and tell them exactly where they can stick it.

Shows how insane the anti-gun people are that they are writing articles that she belongs in jail. That it was guns, not the fact that two sociopaths with hunting knives were trying to break into her house that was the problem. I kid you not, saw that on ABC news.

What was sad is that she waited for 20 minutes and no police came and that she asked if it was OK to defend herself and her child. The right to defend yourself in your home is an ancient right. It is so disturbed that anti-gun nut-jobs want that right taken away and in some states it has been taken away.

it was well over 20 minutes before police showed up.
not uncommon.
the police nor the media will make nothing of this. it is buried and forgotten. anyone who brings it up is a racist. or nazi.
this past christmas, more guns were bought over the holidays than any previous year. people are starting to realize that it is going to come down to them against the criminals. the police don't care who they put in jail. nor do they care what the outcome of this situation would be. if some anti-gun lobbyist throws a million at the DA, this lady is gonna be in trouble.
this story only confirms one thing. when seconds matter, the police are minutes away.

Any law enforcement offical who is serious about law enforcement and the protection of the public would support every citizen being armed to the teeth. It is impossible for law enforcement officials to be every where all the time. As such, if we think of law enforcement in the same way we think of military action, a well armed populace is a great "force multiplier" for law enforcement and will make their jobs much easier.

That is law enforcement officials will support a well armed populace if their goal is law enforcement and to serve and protect the public. Now if their true agenda is something different then they might not support a well armed populace.

I think your last sentence is pretty much spot on. Part of the problem in the US is we have people passing laws that have no comprehension of the problems faced by average people. As such, they have no idea of how to solve these problems and their "solutions" actually end up making things worse!! Not only that but their wealth and privledge allows them to be insulated from the mess they created!!

If these people had an ounce of humility, they'd admit that their background and experience does not permit them to have any inkling of how to solve the problems faced by ordinary Americans and they'd stay out of trying to solve their problems and they'd stay out of their lives. Unfortunately these people have no such humility.

She did the right thing, and as such, both her and her child are still alive and society no longer has to worry about a psycho running loose - because he is now dead.
