    Armed mother saves 2 year-old from kidnapper

    Yesterday morning a Fresno California woman came face-to-face with every mother’s worst nightmare. Just after 8:30 in the morning, a man wearing a ski-mask invaded her home while she and her child were inside. But the horror doesn’t end there. The man was there with a goal. He wanted her 2 year-old daughter.

    This story is eerily similar to a 2003 kidnapping in San Jose California which I wrote about at the time. In both cases, the mothers fought fiercely but were ultimately beaten by the kidnapper. In both cases, the kidnapper grabbed the child despite the mother’s best efforts. But that is where the similarities end.

    Note only a great incident but a well written, moving story.

    Loved the G.K. Chesterton quote, and this;

    An armed and prepared parent can use the tools at their disposal to hold back the dark and keep the dragons in their place.
    A big OORAH to the mom of this story, and may it encourage many more to be like her!!!

    I wonder how long it will take before a warrant is issued for HER arrest?

    Outstanding article. Keep them coming Sir.



    Giving up civil rights for security is a certain way to lose both!
    “A government that does not trust it’s law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is itself unworthy of trust.” James Madison.

    “Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth.” “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.” George Washington

    Probably not long. It is beneath contempt to take a life to save that of your child's right?
