Guns Save Lives: 14-Year-Old Protects His Family

190

If you’re a gun control activist looking for doors to knock on, you might want to stay away from the Mason residence in North Las Vegas. After what 14-year-old Andrew Mason did to protect his younger siblings, they probably aren’t going to be in the mood.

On August 19, two criminals began working their way through the Mason’s front door. The parents were away, leaving Andrew in charge of his sister and brother, both just six years old. But as will quickly become obvious, the eldest Mason sibling is no ordinary 14-year-old. He surmised the situation for what it was, herded his siblings into a closet, and loaded his .22LR rifle. There, he waited while the home invaders looted his home.

At long last, the burglars came to the closet. They opened it up to see Andrew pointing the barrel of the rifle right in their faces. Apparently deciding that discretion was the better part of dishonor, the criminals fled. Security cameras on the property were later used to identify the invaders, allowing Las Vegas authorities to put them behind bars.

“He’s excellent,” said Andrew’s father, Kiewa Mason. “He did everything perfectly. Couldn’t have done better, and he’s actually a hero.”

One might expect a father to talk that way about his son, but this is one instance where it’s not just familial hyperbole. Andrew Mason is undeniably a hero, and his ability to stay calm in such a terrifying situation speaks to a young man who has a bright future ahead. Not only that, it shows you a father who has not neglected his role as protector. Even in his absence, Kiewa Mason made sure that his family was ready for the worst.

“I believe in the right to bear arms,” the elder Mason said, “and it’s not like he was foreign to it. We go to the shooting range quite often.” He told a local news affiliate that this was a scenario he had practiced with his family.

Guns Save

There are occasions when activists on both sides of the gun control debate fly off into such outrageous arguments that you have to just roll your eyes. There’s a lot of paranoia among the gun-rights people, fueled by the level of insane hysteria on the part of the anti-gun folks.

But when you see a story like this, you remember what it’s all about. This isn’t about some crazy theory about the U.S. military taking over small town America. It isn’t about whether or not you can take your damn gun into the damn Chipotle. It’s about whether or not you have the right to protect your home and family from criminals. Yes or no? And if the answer is yes, then everything else falls into place. Then we can relax and have a reasonable discussion about gun control. And unfortunately, far too many liberals can’t answer that question in the affirmative.

    Good for the kid, he did exactly what he should have done.
    He protected his life and those of his siblings.

    I wonder how the left will twist this into a reason to take our guns.

      He made only one mistake – – he DIDN’T shoot the bastards! lol

      1. MAHB001 says

        The problem is that if he lived in CA, he would have been arrested, handcuffed, thrown in jail, and would have had to spend his parents entire life savings to prove his innocents. But that is CA.

            Typical leftie know it all! It is amazing how much they don’t know….especially in Franklin county dimocratic-party.

          3. Veteranasm says

            You need to take your own advice , he wrote IF he lived in CA. You can apologize now .

          4. Valor says

            The solution: Don’t live in CA.

          Also, he would have been sued by the robbers.

          1. glorybe2 says

            In Florida he would have no trouble at all if he had shot both of them even if running away. In rural Georgia the cops might ask you to discretely get rid of the bodies and the phone call never took place.

        3. vespo08 says

          IF he lived in CA, the parents would have been arrested for leaving their children home alone, DCF would have come in take the kids arrest the parents for child(ren) endangerment/abandonment and leaving a gun in the home without a lock having bullets in the house accessible by a minor under the age of 16, counseling for the kids, arrested the 14 yr old for assault with a deadly weapon, stalking the burglars and endangering minor children under the age of 10. No wonder we are a screwed up society. I agree with Michael Dennewitz statement above: to bad he didn’t shoot the bastards!

          1. Stuart says

            Yep, he should have capped their a$$es!

          2. 0331Tap says

            Not with a 22…That would just tick them off enough to take the rifle and shoot the kids…They did it right…

          3. Patrick says

            Professional assassins murder several hundred people every year, with .22 caliber pistols and rifles. Yes, aim for the center of mass, and a .22 LR round will
            kill, now, or later. Meanwhile, the pain can be debilitating.

          4. Taking care of business! says

            Yes. And, believe it or not, a .22 short can be deadly. If you don’t think so, go to YouTube and link to videos about 1/4-inch pine board penetration with .22 rounds.

          5. Jim Horn says

            put a .22 round into a belly button or a bladder and watch the assailant go into paralyzing shock instantly.

          6. J_in_TX says

            Yep. The first shooting I was involved in was with a .22LR. Stopped the intruder real quick when the round (only 1 was fired) severed an artery to his kidney. He lived thanks to quick medical action, but was never a threat again.

          7. snowyriver says

            Have you ever been shot with a .22 ? Well don’t try it ! ! ! I have killed many a deer with a .22 and a few elk, and one bear.

          8. J_in_TX says

            There are a few good videos on YouTube of what a .22LR will do at 400 yds.

        Right-wing childish foul language.

          3. AKLady says

            Childish insults.
            Childish name calling.

            Same old, same old — ignorance, hate and discrimination.

      4. AKLady says

        Are you the Michael Dennewitz that was arrested in Ohio?

        1. Clay Fitzgerald says

          Are you the AKLady that should be put in a straight jacket and placed in a padded cell, sweetie pie?

      5. snowyriver says

        Yes should have started pulling the trigger when the closet door opened. and not stopped until the gun was empty.

    3. CMY says

      Nope, this is a reason to train our children to know what to do…give thanks to his dad as well.

      1. AKLady says

        Exactly. Must be a Democrat, because that is what we do.

        1. Clay Fitzgerald says

          Are you serious? Most dems are scared by the mere sight of firearms and want them all reduced to a molten blob of metal.
          This is a terrific example of why individuals need to have their constitutional right to own and possess firearms protected and encouraged.

          1. AKLady says

            Another right-wing, brainwash victim. Maybe you should get treatment for your entertainment news addiction.

          2. Clay Fitzgerald says

            A brain-dead victim of left-wing, anti-firearm indoctrination spewing hateful, liberal, secular-progressive, rhetorical nonsense, sweetie pie.

          3. AKLady says

            ..What type of parent leaves loaded firearms within reach of their children?

          4. Clay Fitzgerald says

            You’re asking a rhetorical question there, sweetie pie. Do you have an answer and can you qualify it in any way? Make it relevant, huh?

          5. AKLady says

            …..Maybe you should ask the 1,500 who buried their child last year.

          6. Clay Fitzgerald says

            As tragic as that may be, parents bury their children for any number reasons that cause their deaths. So do you have a point here, sweetie pie, or are you merely regurgitating the usual anti-firearms propaganda hand fed you by the Brady Campaign, Cease Fire, every Town for Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, etc.

          7. AKLady says

            Same old, same old.

          10. AKLady says

            Tell that to the parents of the 1,500 children who died last year.
            I suspect they would give anything to have not had their gun where a child could access it.

          11. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Well, sweetie pie, this was a case of a 14 year old who has been taken to the firing range by his dad to practice and who know how to handle firearms. He did the correct thing to protect his younger siblings and was successful in thwarting a serious crime by the judicious use of a firearm. On the other hand, you’d be cowering, unarmed, in a closet and would more likely have become a victim of crime, sweetie pie.

          12. AKLady says

            You assume much.
            Moreover, my children were never placed in a situation where they would need to defend themselves in such a way.

          13. Clay Fitzgerald says

            You were very lucky. But if they had needed to defend themselves they probably weren’t very well prepared, sweetie pie.

          14. festmatt5440 says

          15. AKLady says

            Your ignorance appears to be a huge disabling factor in your life.

          17. L.c. Swain says

            A very smart and thoughtful one as is evidenced by the young man being able to take command and protect his siblings. I applaud the father in his training his son to be ready for home invasion by these lunatics.

          21. AKLady says

            You are an ignorant, bigoted male chauvinist pig.

          22. Clay Fitzgerald says

            The only ignorant bigot posting anything in this forum is YOU, sweetie pie! As for being a “male chauvinist pig”… that’s so 1970’s and I don’t care if you think that of me, neither my daughter, my wife or many women friends think so and they are the only ones that count. Anything from you is totally meaningless and without foundation… sweetie pie.

          27. AKLady says

            Every year, nearly 1,500 children die from guns and many more are seriously injured.

            A little late to the game here, sweetie pie… I posted that back in August. I thought maybe you died or at least slimed back under that rock you live under, but you slimed back out so spring has arrived and the slugs are out.

          5. bobwhite says

            What is your opinion on that young man using a firearm to defend his home, himself and his siblings.

          6. AKLady says

            He was quite brave.
            However, what type of parent leaves loaded firearms where a child can reach them?

          7. bobwhite says

            A parent that has trained his son in the proper and safe use of a firearm. Ignorance of many tools can be dangerous.

            It looks like this 14 year old had the good judgment that comes with experience and age, sweetie pie!

          10. Cathy Brown says

            I think he did the right thing. The good news is that he and his younger sibs are still alive, and the home invaders are behind bars where they belong. It all boils down to be responsible where gun ownership is concerned.

          That is the problem that you liberal scum, have, we do know how it functions low life.

            Childish insults.
            Nursery school level insults.
            The problem is you do not know how it works.
            Congress makes the laws.

          2. Drawer22 says

            @AKLady – It is uninformed, low-intellect proglibiotrolls who keep “electing” politicians who chip away at American liberties by voting with up to 190% of the resident population of voting districts, which are additionally supported by voters who are pets, corpses, cartoon characters, and individual people with multiple names. When Fido votes with the Demoncraptic, proglibiot block, left wingnuts become the unelected politicians who attempt control of actual Americans.

            Sic semper tyrannis.

          3. AKLady says

            ELECTORAL COLLEGE
            Learn what it is.
            Learn what it does.

          4. Drawer22 says

            @AKLady – While I agree wholeheartedly with the basis of your apparent thesis ─ that honesty and concomitant integrity are waning with the increase in proglibiotism ─ I have not yet abandoned all hope, for I have much unexpended ammunition. Take heart, sweetcakes, for though the Electors appointed to the Electoral College are *supposed* to cast their votes in an inaccurate reflection of individual voters, and while it hasn’t turned out that way, the major reason for the disparity is because of so many nonexistent Demoncraps voting to their hearts’ content. Thus, the electoral votes have closely reflected popular votes, no matter that each popular vote was not made by single, individual people.

            Be that as it may, if the electoral votes did not fairly accurately represent those votes cast (whether or not by individual people), it is doubtful the Electors would last long. (That is one more excellent reason for the 2d Amendment to our Constitution of the United States of America.

            Though I’m well aware that it’s nigh on an impossible task to attempt educating a prolibiotroll, it is with *hope* (and considerable prayer!) that this modest lesson might effect some *change* in your perspectives. I sympathize with those having your mental disease, as evidenced by idiocy, but with a loving God pulling for you, there may yet be found a cure other than lead injections.

            Cogito, ergo armatus sum.

          5. AKLady says

            Not all states require the Electoral College to mirror the popular vote.

            Learn your state’s law and work from there.

            The following Presidents did not receive the popular vote:

            John Quincy Adams (R),
            Andrew Jackson (D),
            Rutherford B. Hayes (R),
            Benjamin Harrison (R),
            George W. Bush (R).

            All but one are Republicans. Seems odd, doesn’t it?
            I truly have sympathy with your mental disease, i.e., lack of actual fact.

    5. Edward Ebersole says

      I agree with you and I am glad for the kid and his family. Things could have turned out for the worse if Andrew had not had his gun handy.

    Your son was very brave and very wise and i’m so glad that that he protected these children .Your young man is a hero.

  6. fred says

    This boy did a wonderful thing, and I’ll bet they never show this on the MSM news! This is exactly what the criminal kenyan and so many in DC don’t want you to see… people standing up for themselves and protecting their families! It really doesn’t matter to me that he used a gun, a knife or taser would have been fine also, as long as it achieved the objective of sending the criminal away!

  7. Betty Lukich says

    I am sure Obama will find a way to keep aiming at our guns.

    1. Michael Clemente says

      NOT IF HIM AND HIS SHE…BOYFRIEND ARE IN JAIL…

      1. Betty Lukich says

        You have a point there Michael.

  8. Clyde Hansen 1 says

    The comment made by the reporter writing the news article made one major error! they said at the end of the article that, ” Im sure they were refering to the 2nd amend, ” that it was not about taking your damm gun to Chitpotlee. I have news for you; the 2nd amend is all about protecting yourself and others no MATTER where you are! Looks to me that if every thing meets the reporters criterea then we could sit down and have a reasonable discussion. I wonder how that works!

  9. tinkerunique says

    The family is to be commended on doing what is right. IF there are firearms in the home, all people in that home should know how to safely use them. MY kids were shooting before school age. It was a treat for good behavior and a job “well done”, just like an ice cream cone at the local DQ.

  10. IMSweetOlBob says

    Great, well trained young man. All you folks who bravely say he should have shot THEM should realize it was probably a single shot .22. He did exactly the right thing !
    Both he and his Dad deserve a lot of credit here.
    And whaddya wanna bet you’ll NEVER hear Obama say he looks like the son he never had.
    That statement is reserved for thugs, not heroes.

  11. joebabe says

    Another gun-grabber opportunity missed. The second amendment saved “the children”. Sorry, no crisis or tragedy here. Move along!

  12. CMY says

    God Bless this courageous young man!!! Outstanding

  13. cmi says

    One thing’s for sure, you won’t read OR hear about this on the MSM!!! It just doesn’t fit their agenda!!

  14. Ronald Hagler says

    I fully support this families efforts to protect themselves and their home, but wonder if the “mainstream” media will ever post such an article as this. It is a shame when many people have only the national media minions from which they receive the news. These people never get the true story, only that which the liberal press deems appropriate.

  15. TAM44 says

    Great job by this young man to keep cool and protect his siblings and himself.

  16. carla AMERICAN says

    But say this to fox news about a white boy and you’ll hear the blacks screaming racist. I for one will not be there for them ,to support them with welfare, pick up the broken pieces of America that they refused to defend when we needed them,for them to live in my country when Obama leaves office. They deserve everything we refuse to give them. While we were desperately defending our CONSTATUTION, our laws, our freedoms,they were destroying,stealing,gangs were hurting whites.Obama just gave Kenya $800 million. For what? Americanans are having to pay back the trillions he borrowed and we haven’t seen a pennyIn September they’re gonna borrow more stating the government is broke. Don’t let them. We’re already enslaved to pay the first TRILLIONS plus welfare for the blacks in America and Obama’s homeland Kenya. Enough is enough. SAY NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING! SHUT THEM DOWN! Our states can run themselves. Why do we need a government to provide for every other country but AMERICA? We could be so rich without the government, money in our pockets,banks. GET RID OF THE GOVERNMENT!

    1. Cathy Brown says

      Yes there seems to be too much government lately. Was it in the Constitution: WE THE PEOPLE… FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE? At least that’s how it read the last I read the Constitution. It’s not for the Government by the Government. A think some of you would do well to go back and read the original Constitution as it was written by our Founding Fathers.

  17. Emmett Bowers says

    Yes he is a hero! Guns don’t kill it’s the person holding that gun that does the killing..Proper training in handling fire arms pays off..Sure I believe all people have a right to bare arms, but they should be trained in how to use that gun, when to use it…Just like that young man, training, discipline and fatherly advice paid off…Nice going…For all others if you want to bare arms, get off your butts and attend gun training lectures….

  18. scott says

    guns save lifes hundreds of times everyday.only you dont hear about it because the liberal scum want you to believe their made up bullsh-t about gun violence.another fact is 90% of all shootings are nigg-rs.they wont tell you that eather.if you saw this video the robbers here were nigg-rs also.

    1. billdeserthills says

      So is the kid dumb@ss

      1. scott says

        the kid is a black person,not a nigg-r and you prove once again dik sucker how stupid liberal scum are.all you see is color,stupid piece of sh-t

        1. billdeserthills says

          Thank You for clearing that up F-ckface

      2. Cathy Brown says

        Hey enough with the name calling. I don’t care if he was multi-colored, and came from fairy land . He did the right thing. This b/w prejudice has gone on forever. Why can we just agree to disagree without all this childish name-calling?

        1. billdeserthills says

          Why not ask scott? He started the whole thing

    I am glad that young man had that gun ant know telling what them men would have done to them young people good for him

  25. MARYSWEET says

    This is a good father who is not only a protector but is teaching his children how to protect themselves and their families as they become adults. Thank God for people like this who are teaching their children how to be good citizens and how to protect their loved ones. Kudos to the boy and his father.

  26. OSAMA OBAMA says

    Ya think Obrownose is proud of this hero? I’ll bet not! God Bless them!!

  27. ToniStimmel says

    Too bad he didn’t pull the trigger several times

  28. MolokaiAdvertiserNews says

    Obviously he is NOT one of “Obama’s Sons”; he responsibly used his gun to stop the threat to his family, and did not need to shoot any one. I believe he would have open fire on the criminals had they not immediately exited the scene or if they tried to harm him or his young-uns. Maybe the criminals are some more of “Obama’s Sons”? The report fails to give us that identity detail.

  29. Taking care of business! says

    Good for you, son. God bless and keep you and yours, Tcob!.

  30. Cathy Brown says

    That’s one brave kid. I think I would’ve wanted to blow them away.

  31. dockilldare says

    Daddy should be proud. hope he buys the kid his own rifle as a reward! Well done young man.

  32. Aylagh MacAnnadh says

    Of course there will be exceptions but statistics don’t lie. More people are injured or killed by their own fire arms than are ever in the position or able to act when in the position where they need to defend their own lives or the lives of their family. As a physician I have seen too many tragedies. You will never convince me gun ownership is safe or effective. Get rid of the guns, hunting guns are one things but concealed carrying, automatic and semi automatic weapons, be real. There are just too many circumstances where things go down wrong, they go down fast and innocents get hurt with their own weapons. I’ve had to tell enough parents their child was dead, often at the hands of another one of their own children. No matter how much you scream about educating people about guns and proper care and security people don’t listen and these things happen. We don’t need guns.
    Aylagh MacAnnadh, M.D.

    1. TexasRider says

      @aylaghmacannadh:disqus…..I am a very strong 2nd Amendment advocate. But that in no way negates the need for formal trainin before you turn someone loose with a hand gun or rifle. In this case it appears Mr. Mason had adequately trained his eldest son in the proper procedure in the event something like this might have happened. Kudos to Mr. Mason for the excellent trainin and kudos to Andrew for bein a good student.

  33. noel1234 says

    the kid did the right thing and really was smart. I would have shot them but he did it right.

  34. Dominic Roy Accampo says

    I heard his rightly proud father on the news, this young man did it right, don’t attack them, don’t worry about property, just save your own life! Had there been no gun, would he even be alive today, maybe, maybe not!

  35. Proud Liberal says

    Seems #blacklivesmatter after all to you idiots!
