Yesterday after playing Beat the Producer, we talked about a story of what one mother did to protect her child. 

Sarah McKinley is an 18-year-old mother of a three-month-old son, who just lost her husband on Christmas Day to lung cancer. On New Year’s Eve, as she was sitting at home, two men tried to break into her house with a 12-inch hunting knife.

It turns out the intruder was a man who Sarah believes was stalking her. A week after Sarah’s husband’s funeral, 24-year-old Justin Martin stopped by the house late in the evening and introduced himself as a neighbor which caused her to become suspicious. Justin’s accomplice in the break in was 29-year-old Dustin Stewart.

Sarah said, “I walked over and got the 12-gauge, went in the bedroom and got the pistol, put the bottle in his mouth, and then I called 911.”

She then barricaded the door with her couch and asked the 911 dispatcher, “I’ve got two guns in my hand. Is it okay to shoot him if he comes in the door?” she asked. “I’m in here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?”

The dispatcher first made sure that she had locked the doors and then said, “I can’t tell you that you can [shoot them], but you do what you have to do to protect your baby.”

When Justin kicked in the door, she fatally shot him in the torso while Dustin fled the scene but eventually turned himself in.

Luckily, since it was in self defense, she will not be charged.

Sarah’s the face of what is right in this country but also shines a light onto what is wrong as well.

If gun control activists had it their way, Sarah and her baby would probably not be alive today.

There are a lot of people who are very angry about what happened to the Mount Rainer Ranger and they are trying to blame her death on guns being allowed in parks instead of the mentally ill guy responsible for it.

If I were the NRA, I would take Sarah and put her on posters because let’s be honest, gun control laws are not what stops bad guys from being bad guys. Everyone has the right to defend themselves and their family.

I’m all for people trying to protect themselves because let’s face it, our government isn’t doing a good enough job putting the fear of God into these bad guys so hopefully a situation like Sarah’s can.

boom baby!
I applaud this eighteen year old mother who had the bravery and courage to protect her three month old and herself, while others judge her? YOU people are what's wrong with this country. She's an adult, EIGHTEEN, she can do whatever she wants. And she has more guts than any eighteen year old I know. I am glad she blasted that lowlife away, and I wish more stories like this would be told. PRO HOMe DEFENSE!

Sorry this had to happen to you Sarah
gun control does not stop criminals...thats why they are criminals.because they dont obey the laws. gun control only inhibits the right to bear arms of law abiding citizens. because we are the only one's that will follow them. my heart and prayers go out to Sarah... no civilian should have to endure what goes with taking a human life. Just know that you did the right thing under your cercumstances and i hope you can get past this..
