We are bombarded everyday with negative news regarding the use of fire arms, and seldom we hear anything about a positive outcome.
Here is a typical situation that justifies the right to carry weapons and self defense
Glendale teen shoots at intruder coming in doggie door
Shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, Glendale officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress at a home near 71st Avenue and McLellan Road, Glendale police Sgt. Brent Coombs said.
The 17-year-old told police she heard her door bell ring but did not answer.
A short time later, she heard someone go over her gate to the backyard. She then saw a younger man reach through the home's doggie door and attempt to unlock the latch, Coombs said.
The 17-year-old armed herself and fired a shot at the doggie door, Coombs said. The suspect fled, although it's unknown if he was injured, Coombs said.
Officers searched the area, but were unable to locate the man.
The suspect is described as a Black man in his late teens or early 20s. He is estimated at about 5-foot, 6-inches to 5-foot, 8-inches with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a navy blue sweatshirt with a hood, blue jeans and a wool winter cap.
