Mom shoots carjacker, home owner shoots two burglars.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A mother shot a man in the face after the suspect jumped into her car while her two kids were sitting in the vehicle, police said.

Two stories made headlines these last couple days, illustrating perfectly why we prepare and the importance of being armed and aware, both home and when out and about.

In the first incident a Texas mom shot a carjacker that took off in her car with her children age 2 and 4 still inside. As she was paying for gas in a Shell station Ricky Wright, 36, attempted to steal her vehicle. She jumped into the backseat and when he refused to get off she reached over the armrest to the glove compartment, grabbed her gun and shot him in the face. Wright crashed the vehicle and was later arrest.

Lessons Learned: Brave mom and it worked out ok all things considered… but what if?

What if she was shot when reaching for the gun? Better to carry concealed instead. What if she had carried with an empty chamber? Did she have enough time to reach for the gun, chamber a round and THEN shoot the bad guy? What about awareness? What about leaving your car with the keys in while your kids are still inside in a gas station?

This is why we prepare guys. These two happen in the last 3 or 4 days. The truth is it may not happen to you, but stuff like this happens everyday.

Take care.
