A pregnant woman in Florida shot and killed a home intruder after her home was attacked by a gang of thugs last week.

“A heavily pregnant woman used an AR-15 to kill a home intruder after two masked men entered her home in Florida, pistol whipped her husband and violently grabbed their daughter,” Daily Mail said. “Jeremy King, 34, was at his home in Lithia, Florida with his 31-year-old wife when the two armed men stormed in last Wednesday at about 9pm before pointing a gun at his head and demanding money.”

King said one of the men violently assaulted him, using a pistol to hit him, which he described as a “pistol whip” and kicking him in the head repeatedly. The assailants allegedly grabbed the couple’s 9-year-old daughter, threatening to kidnap her unless King and his wife forked over cash.

During the scuffle, King’s wife, who was not named in the report, watched the scene unfold from another room in the home. One of the intruders reportedly saw her, and began firing his weapon in her direction. The woman, eight months pregnant, then grabbed an AR-15 and returned fire. She reportedly fired one shot, which killed one of the suspects as they both fled the home.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King reportedly said. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

Police are still searching for the second suspect.

King’s injuries required 20 stitches and three staples in his head after the attack. His eye socket was fractured in the attack, as was his sinus cavity. He also sustained a concussion.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it,” King reportedly said. “[My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”

King’s is the type of “good guy with a gun” story that does not get much play in the mainstream press. His is likely to be suppressed even more than usual, given that the weapon used by the intruder was an AR-15, which has been demonized by leftist politicians as a “weapon of war,” as Democrats perpetually attempt to enact further gun legislation.

In reality, the AR-15 is the most popular hunting rifle in America, and is a semi-automatic rifle. It fires rounds at the same rate as a handgun, and semi-automatic rifles account for about 2% of gun homicides annually, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) statistics. Democrats conveniently leave this fact out as they move towards all-out gun confiscation. The first step is to remove the “scary looking” rifles, at which point shootings as a whole will not substantially decrease. Then, the plan will be to regulate handguns and handgun ownership, as those weapons account for most of the homicides in America.

Meanwhile, the “good guy with a gun” stories abound. The Washington Times recently chronicled 11 instances of good guys with guns thwarting criminal activity, none of which were picked up by the mainstream press.
