Via Huffpo:

When Elzie Pipkins was robbed a few weeks ago, she decided she needed a handgun for protection.

Sunday evening she put it to use during a second break-in. She fatally shot the teenaged intruder that she said was also the intruder who broke into her Shreveport, La. home the first time.

The 63-year-old great-grandmother killed Devon Antonio Young, 16, who was armed with a shotgun and demanded money from the safe.

"And as I was unlocking the safe and I prayed to God to give me strength, to get through this, it'll be me or him," Pipkins told KSLA-TV. "And that's when I fired my gun and hit him with the first round."

Pipkins was baby-sitting her granddaughter and great-grandson at the time.

After Young was shot in the chest, he ran from Pipkin's home with $55 worth of coins. He collapsed and died just a short distance away.

Pipkins had a gun that was stolen during the earlier robbery, but Sunday's shooting was the first time she ever fired a gun. She had no previous firearms training, according to

Shreveport police said they were able to confirm her story and link Young to the previous robbery at her home, reported.

Good for her.

Several questions -

1.  Won't she be tried for murder like George Zimmerman?

2.  Won't Al Sharptongue and J$ss$ J$cks$n lead protests against her?

3.  Won't the media hound her to find out why she "murdered" this young black?

4.  Will the United Nitwits take up the cause as they did for Trayvon?

5.  Won't the media and Obama use this as an opportunity to call for gun control?

6.  Won't Obama say "if I had a son, he would look just like Devon?

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
