    9 months pregnant and home alone seems like a pretty helpless victim.....if not for Firearms, the GREAT equalizer.

    Intruder Tries to Break In Through Doggie Door

    GLENDALE AZ - A pregnant 17-year-old girl takes matters into her own hands when an intruder tries to break into her house.
    It happened near 75th Avenue and Glendale about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

    Investigators say at first the burglar rang the door bell. When no one answered, he tried to break in by going through a doggie door.
    What the burglar didn't realize -- a pregnant teen was there to meet him with a gun.

    “He tried to put his hand inside and I guess she shot him in his hand,” says neighbor Liz Zamora.

    The teen fired at the burglar, but police aren't sure whether or not he was hit. The suspect, described as a black male wearing jeans and a hoodie, took off and is still on the loose.

    As for the victim, she is shaken but ok, and due to give birth any day now.

    This is a great thread to emphasize that each of us MUST understand federal AND state law. The perp TRYING to get through a doggie door did NOT put her life in jeapordy...even if the doggie door was for a full size dog and the perp weighed 100lbs.

    The best defense here would have been a verbal warning that "I have a gun and will use it". I doubt if the perp could have ever gotten trough the doggie door.

    I'll give the benefit of doubt that a 17 yr old with probably no firearms training was afraid of the perp entering her house....however, she had a firearm, then reason would say that that she should have had some training.

    In some states, that would be a felony...to fire a shot if your life was not in danger.

    Learn the federal and state laws so you are not charged with a crime!

    I hope this brings up some good discussion.
