An 11-year-old boy managed to prove that the best defense against home invaders is a firearm.
Chris Gaither was home alone when a robber paid him a visit. Rather than construct a series of traps using paint cans like in Hollywood movies, he decided to defend his house in a more traditional way.
The Alabama boy grabbed a 9mm handgun that his stepfather taught him how to use and threatened the invader.
“I told him I was going to kill him if he didn’t get out of my house,” Gaither said.
“When he was coming down the stairs, that’s when he told me he was going to kill me, f-you and all that,” he added.
Gaither fired 11 shots which missed. However, his final shot hit the thug in the back of the leg.
“It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby,” he joked.
The identity of the home invader has not been released.
