Mom puts down child, picks up gun, opens fire on armed teen thugs (South Carolina)


CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA - Two teenage robbers found out the hard way that you really don't get between a mother and her child... and you probably shouldn't assume your victim is unarmed.

According to the police report, the woman was exiting her car with her child in her arms when two teen thugs armed with guns approached from behind the building.

Holding the woman at gunpoint, the teens ordered her into the house. Once inside her house, she ran to her bedroom, put down the child, and grabbed her gun.

Armed and protecting her child, the woman walked towards the teens in the living and opened fire, sending them skittering out the door.

When police arrived, they found bullet holes in the wall and window, but the suspects were long gone.

The first suspect is described as a black male, 6-foot and 150 pounds. The second suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-7 and 140 pounds.

Yet another reason you are the only person who can guarantee the safety and protection of your family. Had she been unarmed, how long would the two teen thugs have beat her? Raped her? Would she still be alive?
