Pregnant Florida Mom Stops Home Invaders with AR-15

In a scene that belongs in the movies, hooded home invaders busted into a residence in Lithia, Florida just outside of Tampa, and began pistol-whipping the resident, Jeremy King, and reaching for his 11-year-old daughter.

King said:

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”

His wife ran back to the bedroom and retrieved the couple’s legal AR-15.

King described what happened next:

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him.  He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

The other suspect remains at large.

As for King, he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, and needed 20 stitches and three staples in his head.

Of his wife and weapon, King said:

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”

There was no word on why the intruders picked King’s residence or if they were known to him.


    • Bill: as you are probably aware a Georgia homeowner took out three masked robbers with an AR-15 a couple of weeks ago. One had a gun and shot first. Bad move. Unfortunately all three were teenagers. I won’t mention their color; however, you can probably figure it out. So sad that parents do not do their job.

  1. Quit showing picture of guns in your postings…Facebook will not let the stories be posted. I have had two postings, including this one denied, today

    • So was I . Since they are not even close to being like the Kennedy and I did not vote for him but still thought he was a good president

  2. You go girl! This is an awesome article. See a good guy/girl with a gun stopped the bad guy with the guns. So glad you and your family are safe and well done!

  3. This is a scene that has played out over and over across the US. A FIREARM is a first line of defense. Because the police can’t be everywhere at once it is up to the individual to protect themselves until the police can arrive.

    • If this were “a scene that has played out over and over across the US” don’t you think we would hear about every damned instance???

  4. Maybe the idiot gun control advocates ought to look at this. Without their gun whether an AR or an ordinary postal it would have been the same and without having it there would have been three dead innocent people. Recognize that if guns were outlawed only bad people would have them.

  5. The Florida Mom should be given the Medal Of Honor for defending her Home and the Constitutional RIGHTS of ALL Americans . The Entire ‘Demorat’ Party should be Impeached and charged with Treason .

  6. That’s why you must be ready ALL the time. These punks have no intention of leaving any witnesses. They ride the road and hang out in parking lots looking for what they believe to be an opportunity. As for Mom, WAY TO GO !!!! I had to take one out about eight years ago. But the word got around and I haven’t been bothered since.

  7. Good for her. I bet that’s the last thing these 2 thugs expected. I hope her Husband gets well soon. I also hope that Law Enforcement doesn’t penalize her as they were retreating (once faced with close order combat with an AR-15/M-4. Given the fact they executed an armed home invasion, assailed the Father and attempted to take the daughter; and fled while still armed presenting further danger to the community. As a USAF Security Specialist when I first started my Career in 1975, Use of Deadly Force was authorized to protect Priority A Resources, to protect someone’s life, to prevent a deadly assault, and to stop someone fleeing from getting away who was armed and presented a serious threat to others. The same latter provisions should apply to the mother.

  8. AR 15 [ARMALIGHT RIFLE ] DOES IT JOB in the hands of a lady protecting her family and property alaw abidding citizen thank’s

  9. Guns in the hands of legal citizens will save peoples lives and help prevent more of this type of attack to steal and injure law abiding citizens.

      • Not if we the voter outlaw Democrats first – Vote Republican and eliminate the possibility of having our Constitutionally allowed weapons taken away.

        • If this comment needs moderation evidently it isn’t what you want to hear – either you want comments from all sides or you choose to be of your own persuasion and in that case aren’t worth my time. My comment is how I perceive an issue not how you do. Either quite restricting comments that are honest , not vulgar or violent.

  10. With what you stupid retarded demon-rats stand for you will loose, Fight and get this out,now,You stupid Democrats killed the water to hydrogen inventor why? I hope you know your damnation is in hell, Hillary said in 2005 ( that the average democrat voter is just plain stupid, they are so easy to manipulate, that’s the easy part ),It looks like Trump is an oil company stooge to selling us out, you stupid retarded Trump, The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. a Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office that gets around 200 mpg, Volkswagen diesel gets 264 mpg, The water to hydrogen auto inventor wouldn’t sell out to the demons from hell oil company’s so the Democrat gov. had him murdered with plutonium poisoning, we are getting ripped off by the oil company owned auto company’s Don’t you think it’s time to take our world back.Once free energy gets out all prices for every thing will drop.
    Also audit all the Senator’s and congressmen, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them.

    • got a problem with the whole world? That’s on you. You think you’re smarter than everybody? Do I see your name running for President, smarty? Do you run hydrogen in your car or aren’t you smart enough to make it work? Perhaps you need to change NEWS channels. You have a sitting President that has gotten more done in his short time in office than Obummer could do in a lifetime, and NO he is not perfect as YOU EXPECT. But he does work for ‘WE The People’. Are you worried only about what’s important to you? And yes, the dems and Rino’s are all: FEEBLE INSANE LIBERAL DEMOTARD TYRUNTS

  11. there is nothing to moderate, if you don’t want comments, take the damn comment board down. If you are moderating to control content, YOU lose. I won’t come back because this site will only use my comments if it benefits the way they see things… BIASED
    We can get that from any common news source in America today. Informed American seems to do things the same way as ALL those good FEEBLE INSANE LIBERAL DEMOTARD TYRUNTS websites… thanks for nothing

  12. I am proud of my country and we have a 2nd amendment right to bear arms to protect our home and family and I have a permit to carry and if any one breaks into my home and I didn’t invite them in, you better believe I would shoot, I have a rifle and a Ruger 380 and I will protect my family so proud of the woman who knew how to use it. And I am thankful I am a REPUBLICAN and I am proud of my wonderful President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence…. I love my USA and I love TEXAS.

  13. He did exactly what he needed to do and was in the right. I probably would have done the same in similar situations. God speed, Gary G. Cramer, Tmc

  14. Liberals beware; you are nothing but commies ; try to take American citizens gun away from them and you are attempting to take Americans freedom away from them. The Japanese did not attempt to attack America because of the armed American public. Liberals are pushing America to a civil war which will put America in danger with enemy nations the liberals continue to support. I am not a revolutionist; I am an 85 year old Marine ready to exersize my trigger finger again. Try to take my weapons or freedom or tamper with America’s constituition and I once agasin will be there to protrct my country if needed. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

  15. This story seems like one of those high interest stories that seem to go viral. So, why haven’t I seen this story in the media ? Particularly MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBE, ETC. ETC.? It’s so rare to see a story where the nice guys win .

  16. Am glad the attack was neutralized by the homeowner. …How much worse things would have gotten if they had used 9-1-1 instead…? Help would never have arrived in time.
    Knowing one did get away though is concerning to the rest of us. Legally of course she could have killed them both. My guess is they don’t have to worry now about having to deal with either of these two again. But now the county sheriff’s office has the task of finding and identifying the survivor who never showed his face during the event, having been smart enough to be hooded and masked. I sincerely wish them luck.

  17. Let me see. The first thing they went after immediately after breaking in is an 11 year old girl. Pistol whipping the dad while trying to grab the 11 year old girl. I think they where breaking in to kidnap the child and sell her to sex slavery rings. Or kidnapping the girl for their own sick purpose. The very first thing they try to grab is a child. Think about it.
