(Breitbart) – A pregnant woman in Lithia, Florida, used an AR-15 to kill an alleged home intruder while her husband was under attack.
Breitbart News reported the incident happened Wednesday and the woman retrieved a gun after two suspects allegedly entered a home and began pistol-whipping the husband.
The woman fired one shot, striking one of the suspects, who then ran outside, collapsed in a ditch, and died. The second suspect fled the scene.
Bay News 9 reports the woman was pregnant at the time of the alleged home intrusion, and she used an AR-15 to defend her husband and home.
The husband, Jeremy King, described the harrowing incident: “They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”
He indicated his wife grabbed the AR-15, shot and hit one of the suspects. That suspect “made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”
Flashback: Joe Biden: Surrender Your AR-15 Or Register It With The Government
Part of Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s overarching gun control plan is to pay AR-15 owners to surrender their rifles or allow them to keep the guns, as long as they register them with the government.
Biden’s plan would apply not only to AR-15s but also to AK-47s, variants of both rifles, and other firearms that Democrats label as “assault weapons.” The call to surrender or register would also apply to “high capacity” magazines.
Biden’s campaign site indicates he will give those who “possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.”
This plan to buyback or register AR-15s appears on the campaign site just paragraphs after spelling out Biden’s position that the Second Amendment “is limited.”
The buyback or register aspect of Biden’s plan is followed by his pledge to close the “gun show and online gun sales loophole,” the “boyfriend loophole,” the “hate crime loophole,” the “Charleston loophole,” and the “fugitive from justice loophole.”
The campaign site also stresses Biden’s intention to resurrect the Social Security gun ban, which President Trump repealed February 28, 2017.
