Sarah Palin in favour of girls with guns who know their purpose

Washington, Sat, 07 Jan 2012 ANI

Washington, Jan 7 (ANI): Sarah Palin has said that she stands for the girls with guns who know their purpose, referring to a teen mom who shot a man to protect her child.


"I'm all in favour of girls with guns who know their purpose," Palin said in an email to National Review Online.


Sarah McKinley, 18, shot 24-year-old Justin Shane Martin on New Year's Eve as he tried to break into her Oklahoma home, Washington post reported.


Palin said she loved "that young woman."


"She fulfilled a purpose of the Second Amendment. I'd advise my own daughters to do the same. This mom protected an innocent life. Kudos to the 911 dispatcher, too," she added.


"They made a decision to break into my house, and I made a decision that was right for me," McKinley told reporters.


McKinley, a single mom whose husband had died only a week earlier with lung cancer, had two guns in her hands. The intruder had a 12-inch hunting knife. McKinley won't face charges for killing Martin.


In Oklahoma, McKinley has become a hero. A fund has been created to help out the "pistol-packing mama" as she's been dubbed. Some women's groups are heralding McKinley as a woman who refused to become a victim in her own home. (ANI)
