Keeping guns locked away from children to avoid deaths? A different outcome.

RUTHERFORDTON, N.C. —
A North Carolina sheriff’s office says a teenager shot and killed a man who was strangling her mother.
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said on its Facebook page that 46-year-old Steven Kelley was assaulting Chandra Nierman Aug. 8 at a home in Forest City where they lived with her three children.

“During the assault, the deceased male was yelling that he was going to cut Nierman’s throat and kill everyone in the house,” a release stated.
The sheriff’s office said the woman’s 12-year-old son got a gun and handed it to his 15-year-old sister, who shot Kelley in the chest.

Sheriff: 15-year-old daughter shoots, kills her mother’s abusive boyfriend

This is the type of case that will be ignored by most of the Big Media because it goes against the Holy Gun Control Writ: Children got an unsecured gun in a home with domestic violence history and  used to stop the violent partner and save lives.

According to the article, the “deceased male” was a violent felon and with two orders of protection against him from two different women.

The children won’t be charged.

It was a good outcome out of a bad situation.

  1. It gets better.
    The children’s deceased father taught them gun safety and manipulation. The girl used a colt single action 45 revolver and shot the dude twice.
    That’s above-average knowledge for a 15 year old girl.

    1. Their Father, the owner of the guns was a felon and had two active restraining orders against him. He was a triply prohibited person, but *amazingly* still had firearms in his possession. I guess we just need one more law to keep the guns out of his hands?. /sarc

      I do feel sorry for the kids growing up with a man like him, and hope his daughters will find better men than their Mother did.

    2. “That’s above-average knowledge for a 15 year old girl.”

      But not for a 4 year old boy, who literally – around 60 years ago – loaded up Pop’s SAA by the miracle of reverse “Monkey see? Monkey Do! engineering”, much to the surprise of everyone else involved.
